My favorite rivals of all time. The Wolf of Mibu versus the Hitokiri Battousai. And when their uneasy friends, Saitou Hajime the cop and Kenshin Himura, the wanderer. They were the fiercest of rivals during the Bakumatsu but in the Meiji era it was said Saitou was Kenshin’s best ally claimed the author himself. I couldn’t agree more!
