Only in name. Samurai X was the name that was given to the OAV(1 and 2) for it's US release by ADV(stupid name really), but it's still Rurouni Kenshin.

*kicks to the Kenshin forum*

Damn, my psychic modding isnt working. Razz

Samurai X is release name of the Kenshin OAVs and Movie. (for help with the term OAV, see the common anime terms thread).

The dvds with the name Kenshin are the TV Broadcast eps.

Kenshin was the TV series, where as Samurai X is the OVA series.
They are based on the same characters, however the tone of each are quite different.
Kenshin has a light comical sort of feel, while Samurai X is really serious.

Don't forget the movie is called samurai X as well. Its based off the TV series, not the OAVs.

I thought Samurai X was the name Sony gave Kenshin when they tried their own English dub release of the series in other Asian countries. And ADV decided to use that name instead of Rurouni Kenshin because Media Blasters had already picked up the series.

Or something along those lines, I can't remember the details.

Reflections is set ages after the series, where Kenshin is married and stuff. It is sorta meant to be a stand in for the last arc of the manga (the Jinchuu Arc), but the only similarity between Reflections and the manga is that Enishi is there.

I don't think many people here like it Smile I'm personally never gonna watch it (well, until I've read the Jinchuu Arc at least)

There's a few detailed threads about it in this forum somewhere.
