Regarding the Nobuhiro Watsuki incident, I am devastated, heartbroken and disappointed. He is a sick and disgusting person who should be punished for his crimes. What he did was wrong, there is no excuse for his actions and he deserved to be arrested, deserved to have his career ruined and to rot in prison for however long it will be. I’ve lost my respect for this man.
However, the Rurouni Kenshin series doesn’t deserve to be tarnished by this. I hope that most of you will learn to separate the manga from the creator because the manga is a wonderful piece of classic work that is loved over the years. I don’t blame anyone who will drop this manga or even the movies and anime. Every person will react and handle this differently.
Don’t hate on those who will continue to love the manga and don’t hate those who discarded the manga.
What we can all agree on is to hate the mangaka for what he’d done.
