Best of Kenshin was a week-long Toonami event, which occurred from Tuesday, May 27, 2003 through Friday, May 30, 2003, at 6:30 PM (5:30 Central).[1] During Best of Kenshin, the 4 episodes of the "Oniwaban arc" were featured in Rurouni Kenshin's regular time slot. The event was meant to build anticipation for the return of new episodes of Season 2, which began airing on June 9th.[2] There were no Toonami promos created for this event, however, it did receive a special intro.

Monday, May 26th was not part of Best of Kenshin because Cartoon Network's Memorial Day movie marathon was aired during Toonami's time slot.[3] Best of Kenshin is similar, both in structure and name to another Toonami special event, DBZ: Best of Buu, which aired in March of 2003.
