I've seen a lot of Kenshin themed sn's/avatars, and I was wondering who here is a fan of Kenshin, and who your favorite char is?

I'm a fan of Saitoh Hajime. He's just friggin awesome.

whats OVA???

I'm not sure what OVA stands for, but they are Movie type deals done by different animators. The Kenshin ones show his background as a hitokiri, and are MUCH bloodier and slower moving than the TV series.

oh yeah, and if you aren't in Japan, lmk. My friend seems to think that we [my clique] are the only ppl out of Japan who have heard of Kenshin.

Kenshin is the "Battousai"

and my character that I like is Kenshin. He talks different though in the tv series than he does on the movies. I actually liked him more when he killed. I wish he would just kill one somebody. He gets his arse whooped by the really good oponents because he doesn't want to kill anyone. All because of his lost love. That stinks.

I see your point, but I think that his sakaba sword makes for a better story b/c he has a handicap. W/o that, he'd just kill his opponents outright, making for REALLY short fight sequences.

Not necessarily. Its true that with good swordsmen a fight does not last that long, but these are cartoons and Kenshin and his opponents are always coming up with some cool Attack move, that can draw a fight out, and theres always room for more cuts or something... I don't know, I just wish that he would kill someone at least once again. I do like the series though. It is clever to have a OAV that doesn't actually kill anything. There aren't many out there that are like that. Heck... none that I can think of that have to do with pure action.

my fav character would definatley have to be Hitokiri Battousai... not the cream puff when he's trying to 'protect'... i'm talking about the hard as nails assasin who ownz everyone!

Kenshin is beyond words... don't ask... just go watch it now....
if your uninitiated... you have 2 choices:
A) start at the beggining of the series (starts slow... gets crazy nuts cool)
B) watch the OVA (original video animation) which is 4 half hour eps.... might be a little confusing to the unitiated... but it's crazy **** cool right away (he r0x0rz my b0x0rz)....

so nuts....

I dunno, I tell ppl to read dosiers on the major chars [on the web or something] then start on the kyoto arc. It's the series at it's best IMO, although the cristian arc was decent as well.

eps 1-66

eps 67-95
OVA 1 - rememberance arc
OVA 2 - shiousesen or seomthing. however you spell it

it can be OVA or OAV.

At first I thought you guys were talking about old samuries. :p oh well guess I can't comment on this cuz I know nothing about anime.

Rurouni Kenshin is the best anime series EVER made!! Nothing can even compete whit it!

My fav char is: Kenshin FO COURSE!;)

My favorite is Aoshi,

He goes through so much character development. We never really see Kenshin go from Hitokiri to Rurouni, but we see that with Aoshi.

Sanosuke is great too.

I have yet to see the last OVA, I want to see more of Enishi.
