    I've read from other forums that the anime was based on a guy named Kawakami Gensai. Credit where credit is due, I myself haven;'t been searching the web for any facts, but I seem to find it interesting. Think it's true?

    Shinsengumi are real. The characters that make up the name are 'New - Chose - Troops', meaning 'newly chosen troops'. They were hired as a police force

    a side note to that, don't confuse that with the motto "kill evil swiftly"

    yea 99% of that stuff is real, which is part of what makes it so cool :coold:

    while it's loosely based on factual events, it's quite a bit better in that terms than samurai deeper kyo where you have a bastardization of Oda Nobunaga, Tokugawa Ieyasu, Date Masamune, etc lol :mamoru:
