What is it?

Here is one of my favorite scenes from the original video animation anime series Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal (Samurai X: Trust And Betrayal):

Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal Act 1 Part 1 (English Dubbed)

What is it about?

Here is how Fandom describes this scene:

When a raid of murderous bandits ambush a caravan of travelers in late-1850s Japan, a young redhead boy named Shinta becomes the sole survivor of this massacre, when a passing swordsman slays all the bandits before they can also kill the boy.

The swordsman, known as Hiko Seijūrō, is a master of the Hiten Mitsurugi-ryū; the strongest of all sword forms.

Hiko is impressed when the boy buries all the dead (including the bandits), and decides to take Shinta as his apprentice.

He then renames the boy Kenshin, a name he considers to be more appropriate for a swordsman.

My Thoughts

I like some of the voice acting, dialogue, music, action, et cetera in this scene that all comes together to form a great scene.

I used to listen to this sometimes back when I was working during the summer at The BP School Board.

There are at least two other scenes that I really like from this anime.

The end,
