    Agreed (::cough Naruto::, and perhaps many years ago when I still liked this manga ::cough:: Inuyasha)
    But the problem remains that is incredibly difficult to make an adequate ending to a series. I think some of the greatest endings are
    1.) Rurouni Kenshin (manga)... When I read that last page... words cannot explain my amazement.
    2.) Cowboy Bebop (anime) when I saw this ending I was filled with sorrow. A nice way to tie things up but very sad.
    3.) Trigun (anime) another ending that I felt was good. All characters should one day come to peace.

    Re: Rurouni Kenshin Discussion

    rurouni kenshin,
    i guess technically you won't find a better history-based shounen manga...

    i finished the series a long time ago and i like it... i still reread the series now and then, when i find some spare-time between other manga/anime and the real life things i have to do...

    to get back to the first posts questionaire:
    1. Where are you in the story? How did you get into RK?
    finished.
    Spoiler show
    I just bought the first volume in a local manga-store because i thought the cover looked very beautiful.

    2. Favorite character?
    kenshin in the flashback (when he is with tomoe, so the beginning of the enishi-arc)
    3. Favorite point in the story?
    Spoiler show

    4. Favorite battle?
    Spoiler show

    5. Your overall opinion of RK?
    great, definitely the best manga out there. the only manga i read more often and like better is mahoraba, but that one is completely diffrent, so no comparisons...
    6. (If you have watched the anime and read the manga both) Which is better, the manga or anime?
    I watched the anime, and found it except the kyoto-arc-animation, horrible. i never saw just that bad of a manga-adaption.
    The manga is simply better in all ways, at least for the tv-anime.
    The only OVA i watched is 'Meiji Kenkaku Romantan - Tsuiokuhen' and it was better done than the manga for what it covered. it was more natural in the way of fighting, but did not leave anything important away, wasn't really rushed... just overall perfect.

    what i espacially liked about the manga were what watsuki told about the characters, how he thought about them, from where he took designs, what he thought he did wrong... plus his extra-pages where he described his own live a bit, what gave one a good insight on how hard, but how much fun one can have with the job of a mangaka.


    something to say to what i mentioned in the first answer: that was an extra publication, which didn't come with the tanks in japans normal edition. it was only released with the weekly magazines and was scaned and added in the german and french publication (dunno about other though).

    Re: Samurai X (Jinchu arc)

    If I am correct it starts with volume 18

    Good luck reading it if you miss a volume/chapter, feel free to PM (I've got nearly all volumes).

    Re: Rurouni Kenshin Discussion

    hoooooly crap I love this manga its the....only manga I have the complete volume series of actually(in korean tho) one the first series that got me into the animanga thing.

    kenshin is also one of the most ripped off series ever in shounen, I think. ...XD other than trigun or DBZ or whatever if I'm right?

    1. Where are you in the story? How did you get into RK?

    I finished the series. I found out about it online actually, when I was first getting into the whole anime/manga fandom, looking for cardcaptor sakura stuff(my very very first anime) I got interested in it and asked my dad to get it on his trip to korea. I read the whole thing in like.....a week

    2. Favorite character?

    kenshin of course the yukishiro siblings come close second

    3. Favorite point in the story?

    Spoiler show


    4. Favorite battle?

    Spoiler show


    5. Your overall opinion of RK?

    its awesome, no wonder so many others rip off it.

    6. (If you have watched the anime and read the manga both) Which is better, the manga or anime?


    I've seen a couple eps of the anime, and didnt like it. manga is definitely better.

    those battles are definitely nice, and better action-wise...
    but the battle in the flashback for tomoe is the best emotional and character + fighting wise... it doesn't have that much of 'powerattacks' and stuff.... it's just a great battle to show that kenshin is a human being and not a simple slaughtering-machine

    yep. i agree with you. generally, i prefer the battles in the past. somehow it seems more exciting. kenshin is my first complete manga. how i saved to buy those volumes but it worth every cent.

    1. Where are you in the story? How did you get into RK?

    read them all. reread it whenever i came home from college for my holidays. i watched the anime first, which was being aired on the local tv. got totally hooked and then started to hunt for the manga.

    2. Favorite character?

    seta soujiro. he's like kenshin in a sense only with the wrong teacher.

    3. Favorite point in the story?

    kenshin's past flashback.

    4. Favorite battle?

    the battle with soujiro seta.


    5. Your overall opinion of RK?

    good storyline, nice artwork, great battlescene. this manga is a gem.

    6. (If you have watched the anime and read the manga both) Which is better, the manga or anime?

    manga is far superior. i kinda lost interest after the shishio arc in the anime.

    Re: Rurouni Kenshin Discussion

    It's been a while since I read Rurouni Kenshin, but it is still one of my favorites to read.

    1. Where are you in the story? How did you get into RK?

    I finished reading the series around 4 years ago.

    2. Favorite character?

    It's tough to choose, but Saitou was usually my favorite (the typical badass character).

    3. Favorite point in the story? (Spoiler-tags)

    Spoiler show


    4. Favorite battle? (Spoiler-tags)

    Either

    Spoiler show


    or

    Spoiler show


    5. Your overall opinion of RK?

    I really enjoyed the manga. I bought and read all of it so I think that's saying something (thought I can't really complain since they were all 100 yen a volume).

    6. (If you have watched the anime and read the manga both) Which is better, the manga or anime?

    I definitely prefer the manga to the anime.
