This is correct but as Kenshin says “as long as i can protect the people i care about or the inoccents around me a sword is all i need to do it” when asked to join the Maji army in helping in the revolution.

Kenshin has no asperations of being top dog just protecting his freinds and family, while useing his sword to atone for the many murders he has commited in his life.

Witch brings me to my point Kenshin isnt a cold blooded killer in the series he uses a reverse sided blade so its impossible for him to kill another man, but if you watch his fights even his most intence he lands death blows but his blade is unable to kill another due to being reversed.

So really Kenshin is constantly holding back and at a disadvantage yet still prevails against his opponents without murdering them, he only nutralizes them.

So while Afro went for the world title through means of bloodshed, Kenshin had no passion to be the best even tho he was the greatest swordsman of his era without killing, in the Maji era Samurias were formaly Japanese - Chinese Origen so Kenshin was still the best swordsman in the world at that time.

where is the proof he’s the greatest swordsman has it ever been stated, all you’re doing is playing favorites

“afro can’t beat kenshin 'cause kenshin never loses in his shows”

Afro didn’t fight for the world title. He fought to avenge his father...the title of Number One just came in the package. And he really only wanted to kill one person...everyone else he killed were people challenging him for the position of Number Two.

Like who and ill bet they were beaten at least once in there show?

Kenshin was never defeated, he was the best swordsman in his era, mabe someone did potentioly outclass him somewere in the world but Kenshin never fought him so he was still reveard as the best like Afro.

In Afro’s world he might not be number 1 if he duked it out with every single swordsman on earth but he never so he is still the best till defeated.

In all honesty we could days weeks years, but it will remain nobody knows who would win for certain, Kenshins Style might be better and Afro might be stronger and equily as fast but at the end of the day there both from a series were their ment to win ment to be the best.

Put in a real life senario Kenshin would be a cold blooded killer assasin at his best who studyied a superior style of swordsmanship and relys on speed and persition to win, and Afro seems to excell above normal people who study the arts he practices and is no stranger to life and death situations with opponents who are ubove average.

So Kenshin vs Afro could go either way but it dousent sit right with me that a Japanese Art in the hand’s of a westener would beat Kenshin...but this is a future reality so why not.

Kenshin was a former assassin of the Ishin Shishi (Anti Shogunate) who fought at the beginning of the Meiji Restoration. He went by the name “Hitokiri Battôsai”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitokiri
(Hitokiri swordsman, Kenshin was one a man slayer thought unbeatable).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batt%C5%8Dsai
(This is what your after Kenshins style was unbeatable, he was the most feared warrior in his era, and had masterd all Sword techniqes).

The title implies he has mastered the technique of Battôjutsu (sword drawing technique, studied in modern times as Iaijutsu) and can draw his sword with lightning speed. Hitokiri was the title given to samurai assassins (“man slayers” in the English anime).

Within the first six months of his career, he kills over 100 people, and eventually became known as the Hitokiri Battôsai at age 15.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batt%C5%8Djutsu

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iaijutsu

(The styles masterd by Kenshin).

This more than proves Kenshin actualy was the best Swordsman of his era he was thought unbeatable inhuman and his style could not be riveled.

no afro has t ofight the best warriors in the world you assume because kenshin has never lost he is the best



I dont Assume ive just posted why he is the best only 4 Hitokiri were around in his era all were elite swordsman belived unbeatable and feared man slayers (assasins).

Kenshin However attained this title at 15 and perfected his masters fighting arts in Battôjutsu even got rid of its weaknesses, becomeing even greater a swordsman.

Both Battôsai and Hiten Mitsurugi-Ry&#363; explain why he is faster than Afro, dispite how there animated Kenshins Art is that of speed in drawing your sword.

Both his name and style are basicaly telling you he is fast.

Hiten Mitsurugi Ry&#363; (&#39131;&#22825;&#24481;&#21091;&#27969;, Hiten Mitsurugi Ry&#363;? “Flying Heaven Honorable Sword Style”wink, known as “Supersonic Sword Style”, is a fictional ancient sword style that is said to pit one against many. It is a sword art that is passed from master to apprentice, its masters inheriting the name of Seijuro Hiko. Kenshin states that the sword style was created in the Sengoku Period of Japan’s history.

There are quite a few techniques within this sword style, all of them utilizing godlike speed and precision.

Himura Kenshin mastered the Batt&#333;jutsu style, (note the name Batt&#333;sai) perfecting all parts of it, including all of its weaknesses. However, Hiten Mitsurugi-Ry&#363; is suited for muscular men, like Hiko Seijuro. After Kenshin learns the “Amakakeru Ry&#363; no Hirameki”, he feels his body starting to deteriorate. By the time of the last chapter, five years after the main story, he has become unable to perform Hiten Mitsurugi-Ry&#363;.

Here is more information on it.

Im sorry but dispite Afro defeating those people it proves nothing he was ment to win those fights, but he never fought Kenshin did he!
And as ive proved Kenshins style and speed are both superior in Factual terms not animated hell even Jubai catches an arrow and uses it to swat many others out the air without looking but hes got nothing on Kenshin in terms of speed so far (mabe Quick Draw) when it comes to the origin of there fighting style.

(Kenshin wins his fights cus his art is ACTUALLY superior to his opponent FACT).

Do more research on Afros Origins and were he studys and what Art he uses, cus as is he would get raped badly by Kenshin on style alone, (trust me it would come down to that) as both have shown the same speed feats yet Kenshin has shown a few more impressive one’s and based on his style and Rank “Batosia” Kenshins got it in the bag so to speak.

(some Samuria is probs laughing his ass of at this battle right now wishing you would study Samuria backround).

List of Hiten Mitsurugi-Ry&#363; techniques
The following techniques are both Kenshin’s and his master’s:

Note - The names of the following techniques are all preceded by Hiten Mitsurugi-Ry&#363;:
Dory&#363;sen (Earth Dragon Strike) (&#22303;&#40845;&#38275;, Dory&#363;sen (Earth Dragon Strike)?)
“Dory&#363;sen” is a range technique that sends debris flying at the enemy from a powerful sword strike to the ground. Kenshin only uses this technique once in the manga.
Ry&#363;tsuisen (Dragon Hammer Strike) (&#40845;&#27084;&#38275;, Ry&#363;tsuisen (Dragon Hammer Strike)?)
The “Dragon Hammer” is a sword-drop technique delivered from above, targeting the crown of the head or the shoulder of the adversary. The key to the technique lays in the height gained from the user’s jump and the free-fall, which is applied to the sword to multiply the force of the sword-stroke. This is a favored technique of Kenshin.
Ry&#363;tsuisen ~ Zan (Dragon Hammer Strike ~ Tragedy) (&#40845;&#27084;&#38275;&#12539;&#24808;, Ry&#363;tsuisen ~ Zan (Dragon Hammer Strike ~ Tragedy)?)
The “Zan” is a brutal variant of the “Dragon Hammer”, which instead plunges the sword into the adversary with a sword-plant rather than simply striking them. This was only seen once in the series.
Ry&#363;sh&#333;sen (Soaring Dragon Flight) (&#40845;&#32724;&#38275;, Ry&#363;sh&#333;sen (Soaring Dragon Flight)?)
The “Dragon Flight” was originally a move meant to utilize the edge of the sword, cutting the adversary below while aiming for the jaw and/or the pit of the stomach. The key to this technique lays in jumping power, utilizing it to its fullest. Kenshin has altered this move, instead pressing the flat of his Sakabato into the adversary, as opposed to the blade edge.
Ry&#363;tsuish&#333;sen (Dragon Hammer-Flight Strike) (&#40845;&#27084;&#32724;&#38275;, Ry&#363;tsuish&#333;sen (Dragon Hammer-Flight Strike)?)
This is a combination technique which executes Ry&#363;sh&#333;sen immediately after Ry&#363;tsuisen.
Ry&#363;kansen (Dragon Spiral Strike) (&#40845;&#24059;&#38275;, Ry&#363;kansen (Dragon Spiral Strike)?)
The “Dragon Spiral” is a move which takes advantage of centrifugal force to accelerate the force of blade while simultaneously avoiding the adversary’s assault, shifting directly into a counterattack.
Ry&#363;kansen ~ Tsumuji (Dragon Flash Spiral) (&#40845;&#24059;&#38275;&#12539;&#26059;, Ry&#363;kansen ~ Tsumuji (Dragon Flash Spiral)?)
Differs from the normal Ry&#363;kansen, in that the swordsman is in motion (and in one particular case in midair) while spinning.
Ry&#363;kansen ~ Kogarashi (Dragon Spiral Strike ~ Wintry Wind) (&#40845;&#24059;&#38275;&#12539;&#20969;, Ry&#363;kansen ~ Kogarashi (Dragon Spiral Strike ~ Wintry Wind)?)
Differs from the normal Ry&#363;kansen, in that the swordsman targets the adversary’s head.
Ry&#363;kansen ~ Arashi (Dragon Spiral Strike ~ Storm) (&#40845;&#24059;&#38275;&#12539;&#23888;, Ry&#363;kansen ~ Arashi (Dragon Spiral Strike ~ Storm)?)
Differs from the normal Ry&#363;kansen, in that the swordsman is in a full somersault while attacking.
Ry&#363;s&#333;sen (Dragon’s Nest Strike) (&#40845;&#24035;&#38275;, Ry&#363;s&#333;sen (Dragon’s Nest Strike)?)
The “Dragon’s Den” is a rapid-strike technique which deals a flurry of successive blows at god-like speed.
Ry&#363;s&#333;sen ~ Garami (Dragon’s Nest Strike ~ Strangle) (&#40845;&#24035;&#38275;&#12539;&#21676;, Ry&#363;s&#333;sen ~ Garami (Dragon’s Nest Strike ~ Strangle)?)
Differs from the normal technique in that the target is the neck/head instead of the body.
Kuzu-ry&#363;sen (Nine-headed Dragon) (&#20061;&#38957;&#40845;&#38275;, Kuzu-ry&#363;sen (Nine-headed Dragon)?)
The “Nine-Headed Dragon” is a formidable technique which utilizes Shinsoku (lit. God-speed) to the fullest extent; dealing nine strikes to the most fundamental targets of swordsmanship (Kara Take, Kesa Giri, Saka Gesa, Hidari Nagi, Migi Nagi, Hidari Kiriage, Migi Kiriage, Saka Kaze, and Tsuki), all at the same time. These points are the key to the technique as they make up the basis of one’s guarding stance, regardless of style or weapon. So with the Kuzu-ry&#363;sen, attacking all nine all at once, guarding and dodging becomes virtually pointless. Unlike the multiple strike attack, Ry&#363;s&#333;sen, all nine strikes of the Kuzu-ry&#363;sen carry lethal force.

[edit] Batt&#333;jutsu techniques
Art of Drawing the Blade (Batt&#333;jutsu)
Stance with right foot placed in front of left, pressing the blade of the sheathed sword against the curve of the sheath, which increases draw speed. The drawing of the blade is the same motion used for the attack. It is an all-or-nothing attack where missing the target results in the user being completely vulnerable. All batt&#333;jutsu in Hiten Mitsurugi-Ry&#363; are comprised of two steps to avoid failure.

Note - The names of the following techniques are all preceded by Hiten Mitsurugi-Ry&#363;:
Batt&#333;jutsu Sory&#363;sen (Art of Sword-drawing, Double Dragon Strike) (&#21452;&#40845;&#38275;, Batt&#333;jutsu Sory&#363;sen (Art of Sword-drawing, Double Dragon Strike)?)
As above, but with a follow-up attack utilizing the sheath as its secondary strike. This second swing covers the period of vulnerability left after a normal batt&#333;jutsu.
Batt&#333;jutsu Sory&#363;sen ~ Ikazuchi (Art of Sword-drawing, Double Dragon Lightning) (&#21452;&#40845;&#38275;&#12539;&#38647;, Batt&#333;jutsu Sory&#363;sen ~ Ikazuchi (Art of Sword-drawing, Double Dragon Lightning)?)
“Ikazuchi” is the reverse variant of Sory&#363;sen, wherein the blade strike follows that of the sheath. The swordsman feints batt&#333;jutsu to distract from the sheath strike and follows-up with the second blade strike. It is a highly-advanced maneuver, as the sheath strike locks the adversary and their weapon, leaving them completely vulnerable to the sword of the swordsman.
Batt&#333;jutsu Hiry&#363;sen (Art of Sword-drawing, Flying Dragon Strike) (&#39131;&#40845;&#38275;, Batt&#333;jutsu Hiry&#363;sen (Art of Sword-drawing, Flying Dragon Strike)?)
This projectile sword-technique uses centrifugal force and the user’s hand (more precisely, the thumb) to shoot the sword from inside the sheath, allowing them to strike at adversaries outside the sword’s reach. The culmination of centrifugal force and hand strength makes the accuracy of the strike all the more efficient, enabling the swordsman to strike regions on the adversary such as the middle of the forehead.
Ry&#363;meisen (Dragon Howl Strike) (&#40845;&#40180;&#38275;, Ry&#363;meisen (Dragon Howl Strike)?)
This is a sword-technique opposite to the god-speed batt&#333;jutsu of Hiten Mitsurugi-Ry&#363;, shinsoku n&#333;t&#333;jutsu (lit. god-speed sheathing). The effects of this god-speed sheathing produces a sonic boom when the sword hilt hits the sheath, temporarily stuns the auditory nerve, impairing the adversary’s hearing and equilibrium. He uses this technique only once, against Yukishiro Enishi, to counter Shikk&#363; T&#333;sei (lit. Sky-Stride Sword Rush).
&#332;gi - Amakakeru Ry&#363; no Hirameki (&#22825;&#32724;&#40845;&#38275;, &#332;gi - Amakakeru Ry&#363; no Hirameki?)
Note: It literally translates into “Flying Heaven Honorable Sword Style Secret: Heavens Bridging Dragon Spark”; VIZ “Dragon Flight of Heaven”.

Amakakeru Ry&#363; No Hirameki is batt&#333;jutsu that surpasses Shinsoku. The secret behind the technique lays in an additional step with the left foot. This single step alone adds an instantaneous acceleration and weight to the sword changing the god-like speed of Hiten Mitsurugi Batt&#333;jutsu to “Beyond Godlike Speed”. However, this very foot is difficult to take as one of the fundamental teaching of batt&#333;jutsu states that one should step forward with the right foot as to avoid cutting their own foot with the attack. Although, with Amakakeru Ry&#363; No Hirameki, the additional step forward with the left foot can spell certain death for the swordsman, as it takes precise timing to coordinate, as to not lose any momentum while drawing; it requires the utmost concentration, that can only be obtained by one’s desire to live.
There is another secret to this technique. If the initial strike is avoided or blocked, the unusually fast slashing motion generates a vacuum in its wake, which actually sucks in the user’s opponent. As this happens, the body is turned around for a second strike, the action adding force to the swing, which also adds to its momentum. This is the true power of the Amakakeru Ry&#363; no Hirameki.
“Amakakeru Ry&#363; no Hirameki” is so fast that its implementation can be successful even when the enemy’s strike has actually reached the user’s body, as in Rurouni Kenshin manga volume 14. As depicted, Shinomori Aoshi’s signature Kaiten-kenbu Rokuren attack has actually begun to cut into Kenshin’s neck when Kenshin released the attack, and blows Aoshi back before he can even finish. “Amakakeru Ry&#363; no Hirameki” is the final technique of the Hiten Mitsurugi Ry&#363;.

[edit] Miscellaneous techniques
Ka Ryu Sen
A gust of wind caused by Kenshin’s sakabato, he uses this to stun or impede opponents at a distance.

Kenshin Ryu Spinning Circular Attack
In Samurai X: The Motion Picture (Requiem for the Ishin Patriots), Kenshin faces against an old enemy who witnessed his best friend’s death at Kenshin’s hands. He therefore learned all of Kenshin’s moves and countered them with his sword and sheath attack style. As his last resort, Kenshin jumped up and fooled his opponent into believing that he was going to use the Ryu Tsui Zen. Kenshin then spun around and delivered an airborne, spinning attack that was very similar to the Amakakeru Ryu No Hirameki. Sagara Sanosuke named this attack.

Zantetsu
The most skilled swordsmen were purportedly able to use their swords to cut through steel. Kenshin states he can use it anywhere except underwater.

Shiraha Dori
A defensive technique where the enemy’s sword is stopped by using the bare hands. This was the move used to defeat Shinomori Aoshi in the Tokyo Arc. And used by Yahiko near the end of the manga.

Modoshi Giri (Reversing Cut)
The most skilled swordsmen using the best of blades were supposedly able to slice an object in two and rejoin the halves together, as if it were never cut at all. Kenshin demonstrates this when he cuts a vegetable and then reforms it back together. He doesn’t cut it with his sword, but rather a kitchen knife, since his sakabato was broken at that time.

This is the PWNAGE that is Kenshin notice it says most skilled swordsman can use these.

“Ikazuchi” is the reverse variant of Soryûsen, wherein the blade strike follows that of the sheath. The swordsman feints battôjutsu to distract from the sheath strike and follows-up with the second blade strike. It is a highly-advanced maneuver, as the sheath strike locks the adversary and their weapon, leaving them completely vulnerable to the sword of the swordsman.
Battôjutsu Hiryûsen (Art of Sword-drawing, Flying Dragon Strike) (Battôjutsu Hiryûsen (Art of Sword-drawing, Flying Dragon Strike)
This projectile sword-technique uses centrifugal force and the user’s hand (more precisely, the thumb) to shoot the sword from inside the sheath, allowing them to strike at adversaries outside the sword’s reach. The culmination of centrifugal force and hand strength makes the accuracy of the strike all the more efficient, enabling the swordsman to strike regions on the adversary such as the middle of the forehead.
Ryûmeisen (Dragon Howl Strike)Ryûmeisen(Dragon Howl Strike)
This is a sword-technique opposite to the god-speed battôjutsu of Hiten Mitsurugi-Ryû, shinsoku nôtôjutsu (lit. god-speed sheathing). The effects of this god-speed sheathing produces a sonic boom when the sword hilt hits the sheath, temporarily stuns the auditory nerve, impairing the adversary’s hearing and equilibrium. He uses this technique only once, against Yukishiro Enishi, to counter Shikkû Tôsei (lit. Sky-Stride Sword Rush).
Ôgi - Amakakeru Ryû no Hirameki Ôgi - Amakakeru Ryû no Hirameki
Note: It literally translates into “Flying Heaven Honorable Sword Style Secret: Heavens Bridging Dragon Spark”; VIZ “Dragon Flight of Heaven”.

Amakakeru Ryû No Hirameki is battôjutsu that surpasses Shinsoku. The secret behind the technique lays in an additional step with the left foot. This single step alone adds an instantaneous acceleration and weight to the sword changing the god-like speed of Hiten Mitsurugi Battôjutsu to “Beyond Godlike Speed”. However, this very foot is difficult to take as one of the fundamental teaching of battôjutsu states that one should step forward with the right foot as to avoid cutting their own foot with the attack. Although, with Amakakeru Ryû No Hirameki, the additional step forward with the left foot can spell certain death for the swordsman, as it takes precise timing to coordinate, as to not lose any momentum while drawing; it requires the utmost concentration, that can only be obtained by one’s desire to live.
There is another secret to this technique. If the initial strike is avoided or blocked, the unusually fast slashing motion generates a vacuum in its wake, which actually sucks in the user’s opponent. As this happens, the body is turned around for a second strike, the action adding force to the swing, which also adds to its momentum. This is the true power of the Amakakeru Ryû no Hirameki.
“Amakakeru Ryû no Hirameki” is so fast that its implementation can be successful even when the enemy’s strike has actually reached the user’s body, as in Rurouni Kenshin manga volume 14. As depicted, Shinomori Aoshi’s signature Kaiten-kenbu Rokuren attack has actually begun to cut into Kenshin’s neck when Kenshin released the attack, and blows Aoshi back before he can even finish. “Amakakeru Ryû no Hirameki” is the final technique of the Hiten Mitsurugi Ryû.

Miscellaneous techniques
Ka Ryu Sen
A gust of wind caused by Kenshin’s sakabato, he uses this to stun or impede opponents at a distance.

Kenshin Ryu Spinning Circular Attack
In Samurai X: The Motion Picture (Requiem for the Ishin Patriots), Kenshin faces against an old enemy who witnessed his best friend’s death at Kenshin’s hands. He therefore learned all of Kenshin’s moves and countered them with his sword and sheath attack style. As his last resort, Kenshin jumped up and fooled his opponent into believing that he was going to use the Ryu Tsui Zen. Kenshin then spun around and delivered an airborne, spinning attack that was very similar to the Amakakeru Ryu No Hirameki. Sagara Sanosuke named this attack.

Zantetsu
The most skilled swordsmen were purportedly able to use their swords to cut through steel. Kenshin states he can use it anywhere except underwater.

Shiraha Dori
A defensive technique where the enemy’s sword is stopped by using the bare hands. This was the move used to defeat Shinomori Aoshi in the Tokyo Arc. And used by Yahiko near the end of the manga.

Modoshi Giri (Reversing Cut)
The most skilled swordsmen using the best of blades were supposedly able to slice an object in two and rejoin the halves together, as if it were never cut at all. Kenshin demonstrates this when he cuts a vegetable and then reforms it back together. He doesn’t cut it with his sword, but rather a kitchen knife, since his sakabato was broken at that time.

This is the PWNAGE that is Kenshin notice it says most skilled swordsman can use these.

oops fixed easy to understand now ^^

lol i found it in the opening of Episode 1:

It says during the dieing days of the Shogunate and rise of the Maji there was one who carved a bloody path between them, he was the strongest “Batosia”.

Proof enough he is called the strongest, and as for the master mix up Hiko is a name passed on to a pupil who masters the final art of Hiten Mitsurugi-Ryû and the master is killed, Kenshin refuses the Title and wont take on the name of Hiko due to this but still attains the skill.

1. It means Kenshin was the strongest and was given the title Batosia (man-slayer) and was thought to be unbeatable.

2. This dousent change the fact Kenshin is a better warrior than Afro and could most likely wipe out the enemys he has fought without any trouble, to deal with Afro he could use his Amakakeru Ryû No Hirameki is battôjutsu that surpasses Shinsoku.
