    I loved Rurouni Kenshin, but have played that out. I just finished Samurai Deeper Kyo and liked that. Im not too into non-Samurai/Japanese Revolution animes but i watched and finished Trigun and liked that. But I want some more sword fighting and crap. Anything new out there? Or maybe old that i just havnt seen?

    The ones where he fights enishi? If so then yes, and god did i hate them. I mean the art was great and the story wasnt bad, but Its just how the whole saga ends. It sucks. I hate to give away the ending for those who havnt seen it, but I just didnt think that it was the best ending to the characters life. Hes Kenshin for gods sake, he beat so much ass his entire life and he goes out like that? Bah. hehe, I just didnt want to see him die, he should have just lived with Kaoru, stopped being a Rurouni and passed his Hiten Mitsurugi-Ryu to his son. That would have made me smile. :(


    Anyways, is berserk about swordsman/samurai? I thought i heard that it was, but never seen an episode.

    Berserk is about Gatts. there's a lot of sword play in it. as for Kenshin, you just need to read the jinchuu arc. the way it was supposed to be. I heard the creator couldn't keep up with the anime, so all those eps after Shishio weren't done by him. the manga doesn't have those stories. but the story is good

    Hey man, thanks for fucking up my christmas present. Is there a reset button for my brain or a MIB flashy light thingy I can borrow??

    Have you ever seen anything by Akira Kurosawa?? He made black and white samurai movies. Not anime but if you like samurai, you cant pass him up. Anything he made was incredible, but you definately have to see these

    1) Sanjuro
    2) Yojimbo
    3) Seven Samurai
    4) Rashomon
