Himura Kenshin



Himura Kenshin is the titular “Rurouni” (wanderer) and main character of the series. He is formerly known as the Hitokiri Battosai, a deadly man-slayer who slaughtered many men in the war before the Meiji era. Kenshin’s fighting style is Hiten Mitsurugi-Ryu, now an ancient study. With this dangerous sword style, he uses his Sakabato (A sword with a reversed edge) to restrain himself from killing anyone ever again, and renounces the title Hitokiri. Kenshin is voiced in the english dub by Richard Cansino.

vs.

Zoro



“Pirate Hunter” Roronoa Zoro (“Roronoa Zolo” in several versions), named after François l’Olonnais,ch.28 is a skilled swordsman who uses up to three swords at once (San(3)-toryou(style)), clutching the third in his mouth.ch.5 To fulfill a promise he made to a childhood friend named Kuina,ch.5 he wants to become the world’s greatest swordsman by defeating Mihawk.ch.50 Before joining Luffy, he made a living by bounty hunting.ch.2 He joins Luffy’s crew in exchange for his aid in escaping execution.ch.56 He makes it clear that he would turn on his captain if he ever stepped between him and his dream,ch.6 but unknown to Luffy, Zoro thinks that if he cannot protect Luffy’s dream, his own would have no meaning and is even willing to die for it.ch.485 His physical strength is enough to lift a building.ch.194 During a fight with Baroque Works agent Das Bones or Mr. 1, he learns how to cut through solid steel.ch.195 He can employ an “Asura” technique which gives him three faces and six arms, thus totaling nine swords.ch.417 In addition, Zoro can expand the muscle mass of his arms.ch.416 He is extremely poor at understanding geographical directions and gets lost very easily. He also sleeps a great deal and loves to drink. Zoro ranked second in all three Shōnen Jump character popularity polls. Furthermore, in a 2007 poll by Oricon, Zoro was voted as the 4th most desired character to receive a spinoff. DVD Talk praises Zoro’s “hilarious” three-sword fighting style as a great example of the show’s sense of humor. Holly Ellingwood from Activeanime praised Zoro’s fight against Luffy as one of the best moments from the 10th DVD from the series released by Viz Media, praising the action scenes. Zoro is voiced by Kazuya Nakai in the Japanese version of the anime.ep.2 In the English dubs, he is voiced by Marc Diraison for 4Kidsep.2 and by Christopher Sabat for Funimation.ep.2 Sabat’s work with Zoro has resulted in him being a nominated of the category “Best Voice Actor (English)" in the Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation (SPJA) Awards from 2008. Carl Kimlinger from Anime News Network commented on Sabat’s work with Zoro as a “standout”, noting that Zoro and Sabat are “well-matched. Kimlinger also found that his along with Sanji’s flashbacks from the anime “really do jerk tears, even if they are less than gracefully executed”.

Who is the better swordsman?

Zolo or Zoro would win.
Kenshin is far over-rated.

Aih, but Kenshin is using a reverse edge sword which is pretty tough as well.

It is safe to say zoro beats kenshin in every aspect.

No, Kenshin is nowhere near the same speed as Zoro.

Anyways Zoro wins with zero effort.

Kenshin couldn’t even beat Shishio, Aoshi(second time), Soujirou, or Enishi without a ridiculous amount of PIS saving his ass. Zoro would massarce Kenshin and pretty much everyone else in the Kenshinverse.

All these posts gave me a good laugh!zorro is strong, phisicaly stronger than kensin, their speed is almost equal if kenshin isn’t a bit faster(when going for amakeru ryu no hirameki, watch the fight with sojiro).Zorro is a bit more durable but all of you understimating Kenshin’s ability to read opponent’s emotions and see through their techinques, plus his will to live wich is essential for amakeru ryu no hirameki to work properly.An unblockable attack wich produces a tremendous amount of force upon his opponent.All of the above are enough for kenshin to win every sword fight even when the opponent is stronger, hell even faster than him.
That’s what the ultrasonic killer Hiten Mitsurugi ryu style is all about.The only style which is stronger than this is the one that Enishi created solely to destroy Kenshin ,yet again he found a way to defeat him.
