The Kyoto Arc is the second season of Rurouni Kenshin. It is considered to be the best amongst all the story arcs in the TV Series. It takes RK's mostly bright tone to a more serious one and with a tightly held plot. With it's very colorful and well-developed characters, the action packed storyline, this TV arc is the most favored amongst Kenshin fans. This arc is where the anime series peaked, plus it is very faithful to the manga. It is my favorite arc of the entire series especially since Saitou, my favorite character of all time is in it!
