While watching Rurouni Kenshin I found an appropriate snapshot for our lolshirou meme, so here's the new improved version.
BTW /a/, do you have to be 13 years old or younger to like Kenshin? Watching it for the first time as a 22 yr old, and shit sux.
"Best shounen evar" my ass.
>do you have to be 13 years old or younger to like Kenshin?
Well fuck you, Kenshin is a classic.
Did you start from the fillers or something?
No, started from the beginning properly. Currently on ep 16.
It's just so damn...cheesy.
watch tsuiokuhen, it's the only good thing to come out of that series.
You're a bit late.
Or you have to look like a girl.
You haven't reached the best part of Kenshin yet.
It is one of the best shonens ever, have you seen the amount of plot in another shounens?
Anyway just read the manga and watch the remembrances OVAs
Well I guess I can't call you a gigantic faggot just yet. Keep going, if you don't like the whole Shishio deal THEN you're a faggot.
It's gone even further.
I got the first 3 volumes of this for my 20th birthday yesterday so I guess I've gotta start reading it.
I would've preferred the first volumes of Akira but oh well.
That is truly a superior lolshirou pic. Forget about my version.
Pretty standard Japanese idiom, guys.
I don't know, I'd have to rewatch it to find out.
The Jinchuu arc is superior but it hasn't been animated yet.
Somebody tack this on. im far to lazy to do this myself.
How many versions of this pic ARE there?
And it never will be
Stop watching at the end of Shishio's arc, it's pure fillers past that point, then read the manga so you rage at how shitty the anime version is
Maybe some day.
The Jinchou arc was sort of adapted in Seisouhen. I found it kind of disappointing, though.
Still, that ending got me choked up.
What, just because it messes with Kenshin's past? Enishi was a bitch, Shishio was the superior antagonist by a fucking mile.
>sort of adapted in Seisouhen
Better wording would be "sort of covered."
I hated the TV series, but you should check out the OVA which is awesome
Yukishiro Enishi could have killed Shishio alone.
He evaded the Hiten Mitsurugi sucession technique like it was nothing. Enishi would have given even Hiko a run for his money.
Ah, such a lovely conversation.
Well, it's shonen. Er... of the more popular sorts. I would figure being, at most, a teenager would be a requirement for enjoyment. The cheese is expected, I guess, since the original author intended for a romantic-action-comedy in a famous historical period. Unless you're perfect, such a combination will result in some chedder here and there. However, the Kyoto arc is great in either the manga or anime.
Busou Renkin is the best
Don't forget about law of ueki!
Show sucks, Trust and betrayal OVA's are amazing.
I disagree. While Shishio can definitely be considered more villain-like by just about any standards, Enishi was a stronger embodiment of everything that Rurouni Kenshin was about in the first place. It was never a samurai tale as much as one of redemption and forgiveness. I don't think there is any better way to wrap up the series than to have Kenshin confront a vengeful relative of his most tragic victim in his prolific past life as a murderer.
>Enishi would have given even Hiko a run for his money.
You are making way too much sense for 4chan to handle.
I watched it up through him killing shishio and enjoyed most of it. It was silly and funny and other than that it was pretty marginal.
I'm guessing the sister complex is massive minus points for Enishi in that Anon's book; especially when compared to a screwed-over revolutionary vowing to be Japan's new ruler to lead the country in a direction he wants.
I liked both; nice to have two different, contrasting examples of revenge.
I tacked it on, but it hit 4chan's image size limit so I resized the whole thing slightly.
At last, a completely new lolshirou pic! This time for real.
Too bad the series had a forced happy ending.
Oh, don't be modest. 4chan can handle something as that. If it's happened before, it can happen again!
>BTW /a/, do you have to be 13 years old or younger to like Kenshin?
That, or a spic. I swear, I kinda spoke bad of the series, and I had a guy jumping on my throat.
Nobody killed Shishio. He was just so damn cool the heat caught up to him.
Tough luck for Watsuki when his fans (and probably his editors) cry foul at anything remotely bittersweet.
What? Ruroken's ending is awesome. other authors should learn from Watsuki.
The thing about this pic is that in the Slayers example, they're talking about a guy who made a pact with a demon, not any of that shonen fighting spirit crap.
lol no. He studied Kenshin's techniques in detail and trained and planned specifically to counter them, is all. All Shishio had was that piece of information from Soujirou, and he still wasn't completely beaten even after having four matches in a row AND with his time limit thing. He was probably the second strongest guy in the series (nobody can touch Hiko, Watsuki said so).
Personally, I thought it felt pretty natural. It's not like Enishi magically forgave Kenshin or anything, as I recall. Of course, it's been a while since I read it, so maybe I should revisit it soon.
IIRC, Enishi just sort of sulked to that hobo village Kenshin also sulked to.
That hobo village was awesome. and Kenshin recalling all his past and present actually made shat bricks when he recalled Shishio and Saito
Hello TAMP, go >>10138071
Enishi went to reunite with his father, the funny thing is that Enishi is still incredibly wealthy so there is no telling what happens after he meets his dad.
Stop saying that every time if you won't even come up with some explanation to get there.
kenshin is fucking awesome shonen, the manga that is. the anime is cool at the start, but moves into an ugly piece of trash. awesome OP though
