Reflection tells the story of what happens after the TV series of Rurouni Kenshin. In other words, when Kenshin is an old man. If you haven't seen anything before this, I suggest you wait until you do before reading this, because there are a few spoilers here and there. Kenshin has married Kaoru and they have a son named Kenji. Kenshin, rather than staying at home, travels for long periods of time after his marriage to "reflect" on his past. Meanwhile, Kaoru stays at home and in bed, pining for her husband, and Kenji goes off to try his hand at training in Hiten Mitsurugi swordsmanship style with Kenshin's old master, Seijiro Hiko.
