If there is one person out there who knows Kenshin way better than anyone else, it would be, Mayo Suzukaze, kenshin’s anime voice. I have her interview about kenshin (ova) but I left my disc back home but here is what she said and I quote : “I felt like Kenshin is me, he is my other half. Kenshin probably loves kaoru more than he thinks kaoru loves him. Those two, how do I say this? Their souls are as one, so I think that’s wonderful. This series is truly unforgettable to me. “ (From OVA interview)
I love how she said that Kenshin and kaoru are one soul, simply amazing! Made my heart melt like butter, if I have the chance to go home, I will upload that video.
Oooh, fun! I had to go look my AP list. So here they are, in order (as best they are right now), not including movies (Princess Mononoke, Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, Spirited Away, etc.) or short OVAs (Rurouni Kenshin Tsuiokuhen).
That’s amazing stuff! The cosplayers retold whole OVA Tsuiokuhen story in their photos! It’s a great pleasure to guess what scene each photo was supposed to describe. My favourites would be Hiko’s speech about taste of sake and beauty of nature. Looks fabulous.
I think I could do whole mini-series about me watching Ruroken’s OVAs.
It’s usually like that:
Me: I feel so miserable right now why not watch the first OVA to cheer myself up? I’ll watch only happy bits. Two hours later: No! I did it again! My feels!
Me: everyone says the second OVA has its good moments. Even if it doesn’t I can’t say it’s no good if I never watched it, can I? Let’s watch! 5 minutes later: no way I’m watching this nonsense. No bloody way!
Me: everyone says the latest OVA is a disaster. It couldn’t be! Some time later: did he just stub him in the eye? Oh, my, it’s a disaster!
take Kenshin away and it won’t be Rurouni Kenshin anymore. You can’t just take main character and completely changed what make him hero for many. That’s just not what we want. Beautiful swordsfight can be found in a lot of places and we can’t be satisfied with just them.
