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?
