    Re: Rurouni Kenshin Discussion

    I went on a massive reading binge of this manga. Finishing it in a few days @_@ I liked it, but I didnt like Kenshin, prefered him as the Battosai. But liked those tweaker moments. I havent seen the movies made, and watched some of the anime but didnt watch it fully. Great manga though.

    Spoiler show


    Kenshin himself is not a very coll figure, however his mind and his personality are quiet complex and interesting. Shinomori Aoshi, though was in the beginning my favorite character, until somebody called Saitoh Hajime came up...

    but how exactly do you write "Saitoh"? I always write it like that but translators keep writing his name different. One time it is Saitoh, then it is Saitou, Saitoo, etc.

    Really? Hmm... well, maybe you could try mIRC. Check out my mIRC instructions over in Comments/Complaints.

    You may need Internet Download Manager as well, or something to that sort. It's helpful for resuming capability.

    Re: Rurouni Kenshin Discussion

    Kenshin is absolutey, without a doubt, the best manga I have read (I don't include Blade of the Immortal because that particular manga is in a class of its own).

    I love the story, the characters, the writing, the historical references, the action and the comedy. Most of all, I love the themes it explores: be true to yourself; in order to value the lives of others, you must first value yourself and in order to atone, it is better to redeem than punish yourself.

    I also love the character study of Kenshin and the things he learns along his journey.

    I've seen the anime and read the manga (nearly finished collecting!) and have reached that point in the manga now where I cannot bear to read because it's so heart wrenching! Hate that, and love it at the same time!

    Brilliant Watsuki!

    That's funny that you should say that kadoman because I just read some Blade of the Immortal and I absolutely agree with you - it's in a class all of its own.

    It's the first manga since Naruto, Bleach, and Rurouni Kenshin I've truly enjoyed, and couldn't wait until the next chapter, all that jazz.

    Going to make a Blade of the Immortal thread before I rant too much here.

    And hatakescarecrow, careful of posting about major spoilers like that out of the blue XD  Use spoiler tags.
    The ending you must referring to must be the seisouhen ova.

    Re: Rurouni Kenshin Discussion

    Just so people are aware, the ending to the OVA (Reflections) is not the same as the ending in the manga.  It is something of a hotly debated topic.  Hardcore Kenshin fans are dismissive of the OVA because it has very little in common with the manga, was at times, inaccurate with some of its characterisation and had no input by Watsuki himself (who was a staunch advocate of a happy ending for his characters).  More casual fans can appreciate its different approach however.

    As for the TV series, the last season was not at all based on the manga in any way, shape or form.  They basically, did not animate the last story arc of the manga, so again, many hardcore (heck, even casual fans) do not like the latter part of the TV series which was made up entirely of (very bad) filler.

    EDIT: I forgot to say, yeah, definitely start a Blade of the Immortal thread! That would be cool!

    Thanks for the info, kadoman! That helps.
