Can we have a thread to talk about the glory that is Ruroken
>TFW GREATEST SWORD FIGHTS EVER COREOGRAPHED
Tell me, why hasn't /a/ accepted Ruroken yet?
Its been discussed to death before some people (who browse /a/) were even born.
OP here. I dunno, I think there's something worth discussing about this anime to this day, particularly compared to half the tripe posted here on /a/
I don't know ANY manga that balanced Character interaction and Action like this manga did
If you're asking for recommendation, there's google.
Personally, I've always preferred the first OVA series. Anything else has been too silly for me. Katanah vaccuums, etc.
Not a rec thread. More of a lament at the state of anime today more than anything.
Also I might add: I didn't think the sword fights were particularly good. They mostly involved super powers rather than actual fencing. The first OVA did a much better job.
The first OVA? The one with Tomoe?
I have to agree.
It still wasn't a very faithful adaptation,though.
I personally prefer the manga.
>tfw no proper Enishi arc
>dat anime ending
The fuck you talkin' about? Anime is better today than it was years ago.
I used to have an enormous boy crush on Kenshin. I would be his husbando any day.
Also Sanosuke was awesome. I used to do comics with my cousin where we inserted him in as a joke into everything we could think of.
This is the first time I see a Kenshin thread. The last arc was terrible, the anime ending sucked. I haven't seen the OVAS from last year yet, but the live action movie was awesome.
I havn't seen the live action movie yet but I want to. How are the characters portrayed? Is it pretty faithful to the manga/anime?
The last OVA disappointed us.
It is, and you'll be surprised by the battle choreography. I can't wait for the next one, that's supposed to be Shishio arc.
Hnnggg, I can't believe I havn't been following this. Watching as soon as possible.
I completely agree about the battle choreography.
I wished they could show usba little bit more of "oro" goofy Kenshin,though.But oyher than that,I enjoyed the movie.Can't waot for the next one.
