Not because he is the better swordsman but because his defensive style pretty much counters any “regular” sword style. Great article – thank you for it. Impressively, Aoshi is the only of four the others being Kenshin, Saito, and Sanosuke who battled the fearsome Shishio and wasn’t knocked out at any point. After Kenshin flipped his sword, Saito handled the fight very differently and avoided any kind of damage. And one notion at that point: Then, Shisho became somehow stronger, but reached a limitation as well. See below for a quick analysis of his abilities compared to Shishio’s.

Usui also got stronger, but he didn’t dare to cgallange Shishio again.
Top 5 Strongest Swordsmen in Rurouni Kenshin
First place has to go to Kenshin’s teacher, the thirteenth student of the Hiten Mitsurugi style. I am amazed you are still up for debate after all this time; let me go into detail then. Anyway, if Kenshin Himura had enough speed to match his blows, Kenshin Battousai or Saito Hajime should be able to do even better.
Anything Aoshi can seijurk strength-wise, Saito can do better. For the story it would be boring because he would just waltz in and kill everyone in a couple minutes, maybe seconds. No data is shared with Paypal unless you engage with this feature. Although being more ‘dark and sad’ and having a different drawing, I believe it’s truly a masterpiece, perhaps even better than the anime.
You gotta give this guy credit – he fought, and mostly defeated, four main characters in a row though all of them had been previously injured. Ramquel Sojiro is in the honorable mentions, if it helps. Furthermore, Shishio possesses the unique ability to neutralize any attack he’s seen before, making it even thougher for Saito due to his inflexible Gatotsu-technique.

Still, I can respect that opinion. Might be a sign, that he was still inferior. Jacob I strongly disagree with your list rankings, and your information isn’t correct: Have to give them credit for their effort though. Once he’s seen an attack once, he can develop ways to counter it All-around incredible swordsman “Cheats” to grantee victory utilizes gunpowder, throws innocents in front of himself to block hits, etc.
Hajime Saito First, the brutal anti-hero, Hajime Saito, who fights for the harsh justice of “aku soku zan”, slay evil immediately. Throughout his travels, he encounters a variety of characters, and many powerful swordfighters. Additionally, Kenshin feels responsible for Shishio because he was Kenshin’s replacement after Kenshin quit being an assassin. Again, he won’t be able to block Gatotsus, though.

It’s true that Aoshi’s emotional state is unstable, but he arguably emerges mentally stronger than Saito at the end.
Luke I respect your view; we can agree to disagree. And if Saito uses his ougi first he wins anyway. Makoto Shishio The diabolical Makoto Shishio replaced Kenshin as an assassin after Kenshin became sekjuro with murdering. Perhaps he would have a few more wounds without that. He is portrayed as the Broly-like character anyway.
Kenshin and Saito’s clash had no conclusion, true, but Kenshin landed a blow to Saito’s neck at one point that, had Kenshin been wielding a normal sword like Saito was, would have decapitated him, making me think that Kenshin’s skill at the point prior to his re-training is superior to Saito. They’re not stupendous, but some fun can be had for diehard Kenshin fans. And he still lost to him.
If Aoshi has problems just blocking an attack from Kenshin, then Saito’s would be unblockable which is it anyway, as it’s a stab To quote from the Kenshin wiki page on him:. Of course, if Aoshi had known in the first place the existence of the Zero Shiki, then things would be different. He forced Kenshin to enter his Battousai mode again after many years, and at the end that fight was a draw. If you haven’t, I would strongly recommend it.
And anyway, that turtle shield seemed to be a great counter to Saito’s thurts.
