    Well, I'm a samurai anime fan...so yeah, I liked the Rurouni Kenshin series, but I didn't like all of the arcs. My favourite was probably the one with Shishio. My favourite character is Aoshi. I liked the Samurai X OVAs more, because it was the serious battosai side of Kenshin.

    i despise the TV series but highly enjoy the two OVAs, Reminiscience and Reflection. Reminscience is one of my top 5 animes. Truly a great one.

    I watched it and loved it up through the Kyoto Arc with Shishio. I stopped watching after that and I think I made the right choice. :o

    I haven't seen the most recent OVA, but I liked the prequel stuff a lot.

    saitou and sanosuke are my favorite characters, but i think saitou is kinda cooler, the way he acts and how he smokes and dresses up, and that gathotsu attack is pwnage.....

    the last thing about saitou is that hes the only person throughout the entire rurouni kenshin series that kenshin never beat, mainly cuz saitou is battle wise just like kenshin, but kenshins a bit gay...:(

    I read that the Hajime Saitou character was based on the real Hajime Saitou of the Meiji Era. :o

    i really love the first ova, but the tv series is decent. Its nothing compared to the anime because of his slight pacifist ways.

    Hey, I loved the anime so much that, as a Christmas gift to my sister and girlfriend, I made a manga reading program for the last Rurouni Kenshin story arc that played context sensitive music. That means that, depending on what page you're reading, it played an appropriate musical score. I got the music from the score of the first two seasons of the TV show.

    In case you don't already know, the first season* (the part in Tokyo) and second season (the Kyoto arc) were based on the original manga while the third season (what Media Blasters calls "Tales of the Meiji") was "filler." At the time, it was common practice to not animate a manga story arc that was still in progress. Because the final story arc for Rurouni Kenshin was ten volumes long, it was quite a while before they could start animating it and, because audiences were unhappy with the filler anime stories that aired during this wait, the show was cancelled before the final story arc could be animated, much to the chagrin of its fans (including me!). This tragedy was the inspiration for my manga project.


    * I use the term "season" rather loosely, since Japanese TV don't have seasons the way American TV does...

    I thought Trust and Betrayal were the best.

    Which chapter of the manga did the anime and manga seperate at?

    motion picture and reflection obviously arent as good as trust and betrayal cuz u see kenshin instead of battosai.........

    and by the way...sanosuke and saitou are the best characters in rurouni kenshin!!
