    Rurouni Kenshin by Watsuki Nobuhiro



    This is the Rurouni Kenshin manga / anime discussion thread.

    This is the one manga I consider to be better than Naruto... ... believe it or not. The writing is superb, the art is highly engaging, and the characters are just plain awesome.

    To say nothing of how fast-paced the story is, and how it always keeps you on the edge of your seat.

    I'm talking about the manga, which I just recently completed. I haven't watched the anime. I read up to volume 22 with Viz's translations, which are superb, and then finished the rest on-line (the series is 28 volumes long). It's a magnificent story.

    If you are a Rurouni Kenshin fan or reader or watcher, this is the place to come to discuss it.

    Remember, if you are talking about story details that may be considered spoilers to newer readers, please place them between spoiler tags to keep from spoiling the story for anybody. Thanks!

    Oh, by the way if you ARE new to the story, you can download the entire manga at #lurk on irc in the Neverwhere packlists.

    If you can't use irc, PM or e-mail ShgnLW if you want to see more of the manga, he's willing to help out.

    EDIT: ShgnLW has uploaded the following RK volumes to rapidshare for your convenience:

    Edit2: Seems like all the links have died. If you're looking for any volumes or chapters, just post which ones you want. Somebody here will help you get them.

    Okay, let's discuss!

    1. Where are you in the story? How did you get into RK?
    2. Favorite character?
    3. Favorite point in the story? (Spoiler-tags)
    4. Favorite battle? (Spoiler-tags)
    5. Your overall opinion of RK?
    6. (If you have watched the anime and read the manga both) Which is better, the manga or anime?

    Re: Rurouni Kenshin Discussion

    Yea!! RuroKen is one of the best manga I've read. Love it still, even though I finished reading and watching it years ago. :]

    1. Where are you in the story? How did you get into RK?
    ~*Let just say that I've already finished RuroKen. But on my RuroKen collection from Viz is up to v22. Borders takes forever to get v23 up. And I got all 3 seasons of RuroKen anime boxseted. X] And how I got into RK, I can't remember. It's a long time ago. I think I saw an ep or so of RuroKen fansubbed. And then, I did a couple research into the storyline and such and then, I just got so into it that I don't remember what I did after that... ^^;

    2. Favorite character?
    ~*Himura Kenshin of course. And Hajime Saito

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


    4. Favorite battle? (Spoiler-tags)
    Spoiler show


    5. Your overall opinion of RK?
    ~*Love it still. The storyline is superb. OVA & ANIME & MANGA = AWESOME!!

    6. (If you have watched the anime and read the manga both) Which is better, the manga or anime?
    ~*Well, the manga is more precise and it is the original story on how the author intended how to tell the story. But the anime is good to watch too. It's like watching the picture comes to life with motions and stuff like that. And the battle couldn't be more intense. And to which is better, I really don't know. Depend of the person's preference. For me I like both. Whenever I feel like I want to heard sounds I watch the anime. If I want peace and quite and follow the org storyline I read the manga. They add a few things in the anime that aren't in the manga so don't go looking for them in the manga. And yeah, they do have fillers and such. All anime does, I think. But still it's good to watch and have both for your collections. X)

    Re: Rurouni Kenshin Discussion

    are we supposed to answer every question above. hmm!!

    Rurouni Kenshin is more the best- it is a classic. the best samurai based anime ever- i think most people will agree. i have watched all the anime episodes (up to eps 96), movies, and OVAs from Tsukiyomi to Seisshouhen. what is left is I have to finish the manga.

    Re: Rurouni Kenshin Discussion

    Hahahah, yeah, that fight you mentioned sure is a good one. I just recently got the missing manga chapters (and thnx to GoldKnight I have them now Rep's for u ). To watch the fight in the anime is definitely the best one I ever saw in any anime/movie. But the read, though I thought the fight was a bit underrated (read the fight today).

    Kyoto arc (last arc of kenshin, not animated for the people who are new to this) is definitely the BEST ARC OF KENSHIN. That's why you all: go and grab manga volumes 18-28. PM me or e-mail me and I'll put them up my forum. Maybe MANGAHELPERS wants to host them, but if not I'll gladly put up some links to a place where you can download them Just e-mail or PM me. If nobody does, I'll not do it

    BTW> Goldknight, that ftp adress is secured now I think. Could just download the chapters I need (I'm very thankfull for that) however I wanted to d/l more kenshin (not all my Kenshin manga is of high quality) but it didn't work... oh well

    Re: Rurouni Kenshin Discussion

    Hmm, yeah, the ftp address was where I was able to get the entire Vol. 1-28 package, but it looks as though the folder doesn't exist anymore.

    Well, you can still also download them at irc on #lurk in the Neverwhere packlists. Thanks for helping out ShgnLW.

    And yeah, venicia777, you gotta answer the questions ...ok, nah, you don't have to, it's just there to start some conversation.

    As for myself...

    1. Where are you in the story? How did you get into RK?
    Finished the manga. I got into it through the preview in Shonen Jump 2 years ago. It hooked me almost immediately.

    2. Favorite character?
    my favorite characters are Saito Hajime and Kenshin as well, kinda surprised so many people here agree with me.

    3. Favorite point in the story?
    Spoiler show


    4. Favorite battle?
    Spoiler show


    5. Your overall opinion of RK?
    I think I've already made it pretty clear I love RK in starting this thread It's the first manga I've ever read from beginning to end and I've loved every part of it.

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

    Re: Rurouni Kenshin Discussion

    ice, type irc://irc.irchighway.net/udanraws in your Firefox. It should take you to that channel in mirc. Open a new connection.

    You're gonna have to register so type /msg nickserv register *password* *e-mail* - you'll have to enter a true e-mail so you can get the confirmation e-mail. Remember this password. Once you get your confirmation e-mail, you can now /j lurk

    You should be taken to the #lurk channel. Once there you will immediately see at the top of the chat a 04: Packlist: http://gotlurk.net/ - click on that, or either open it in Firefox, you'll be taken to the lurk website and you can then go to the correct packlist, find out the number of the volumes/chapters you want, enter that in mirc ( example: /msg Mirrors xdcc send #*number* ). It should then start downloading the volumes for you.

    Guest usernames (usernames that contain the word "Guest") cannot be registered.
    First type, /nick *newnic* to change your screename (inserting the screenname you want where *newnic* is). Then, do the nick registration stuff. However, be careful. Some nicks may already be registered. And if your's is registered, then try again until you find one that's not.

    Re: Rurouni Kenshin Discussion

    I absolutely love Rurouni Kenshin! I finished reading and watching it years ago, but I go back and read/watch it over and over again. It's one of those animes that never gets old for me, no matter how manny times I see it!

    1. Where are you in the story? How did you get into RK?
    I have the entire anime and OVA, as well as all the entire Japanese manga, and up to 22 of the Viz translation. I bought the first DVD on a whim when it first came out, and I got the subsequent onesimmediately after their releases.

    2. Favorite character?
    I love Soujiro. He's been my favorite since the first time they showed him, not to mention I love his battlestyle.

    3. Favorite point in the story?
    Spoiler show


    4. Favorite battle?
    Spoiler show


    5. Your overall opinion of RK?
    Kenshin is my favorite anime, the only one that I hold over Naruto!

    6. (If you have watched the anime and read the manga both) Which is better, the manga or anime?
    The manga is definitely better because it doesn't have the filler stuff the anime sometimes threw in, like the horrible third season in general. However, I prefer the anime of the Kyoto arc because it was done so loyally to the manga, and drawn beautifully.
