Ya... its weird to say 22

Ya... its weird to say 22 volumes because RK is 28. And as I heard it from Ocean, it will probably have the color pages.

The Kanzenban versions are

The Kanzenban versions are the "Complete Editions". The Tankoubon versions are the ones that were already release but there's a better explanation here:

"WHAT IS THE KANZENBAN? IS IT DIFFERENT FROM TANKOUBON??
Manga in Japan almost always starts off running in a magazine (such as Shounen Jump). After awhile the individual chapters are bound together and released in volumes, called tankoubon. Typically when a manga becomes very popular in Japan there will be a new release of the manga, typically known as kanzenban, or "perfect edition." These volumes are usually printed in larger volumes that hold more chapters compared to their tankoubon counterpart.
As for the second part of this question, yes and no. The covers are different and the volumes themselves are larger(meaning they hold more chapters) but the manga itself usually doesn’t change (there’s rare instances, such as the Dragon Ball kanzenban, where a few minor things will change or be updated). There are going to be 22 volumes of kanzenban as opposed to the original 28 volumes of tankoubon." Iyouboushi states is his Kenshin FAQ which you can download below.
