This is a decent series I've started reading recently. It takes place in Japan 10 years after the Samarai are all but gone. Kenshin the Rurouni (Wanderer) comes accross a town. I don't want to spoil anything in it (Partly because I don't know it well enough to do so ) It's an interesting series though. I suggest you read/watch it if you enjoy sword fighting and amusing characters. There's some historical references that are difficult to understand but it's still understandable.
