Ultimate Rurouni Kenshin Manga Quiz

I challenge anyone who thinks they are a true Rurouni Kenshin master to take this quiz. It's based solely on the original manga and two sequel works drawn by Nobuhiro Watsuki. Referring to the anime and OVA may work in some cases, but certainly not in all.

If you pass this quiz, you are indeed a true master of Rurouni Kenshin obsession. If not, that's OK too. Just go back and read the manga again.
