I'm on a Rurouni Kenshin addiction right now. I've done a review on its prequel, the original story, its two specials which can be technically called sequels and now this so it's safe to say, I enjoy Rurouni Kenshin. Before you have my head I know this does not follow the manga and everyone who has read it wants to shit on this OVA. This review is for people who don't read manga like me (just not a fan) or people who want to watch this anyway.

Story- What's there to say. The first part is 95% flashback that you have already seen from the original read more

Now Rurouni Kenshin is probably the best samurai manga story I have read to date, and I was pretty satisfied with the anime adaptation, so now I decided to check out the other anime versions, because I put it off for too long and to prep myself up for the recently announced new anime coming out in some time.

I decided to watch the 2 episode ova that acts as sort of a closure to the series, and well... My mind is a little mixed up after watching this.

*This is just my personal impression of this ova, if you do not agree, that's fine and I'm read more

The Last arc of Rurouni Kenshin, it's all about the final days of a great man that is Kenshin.

Everything has been decipted well in this OVA, from the stunning sceneries and up to the stunning orchestral score that it has. The story is delivered very well. It contains flashback of some of Kenshin's greatest battles and is remade or should I call it "Remastered", with a stunning animation. It also includes some scenes/events which you won't find in the manga. The OVA itself will give you a timeslip of what has happened to Kenshin through all of the years he has spent read more

Samurai X: Reflections - the good and the mostly bad

So what's my beef with the third Samurai X OVA? Well, for starters, it's never a real positive when the creator is not involved with development of a new story (with George Lucas as the exception, as exemplified by the SW prequels). Also, I know people praise the animation as being far superior to the TV series, Rurouni Kenshin, but I wasn't a big fan of the new character designs. I'm all for high-quality, better action, more violence read more

Recommendations

Just like the Kenshin prequel, both are recommended because of the swordplay, romantic drama, and dark theme.
Both have a melanycholy and darkly dramatic feeling.
Despite having the potential to become one of the best anime in the past decade, they both drown in their ambitions by the petty melodrama and inconsistent characters. These two series are a must watch if you love tear jerkers.
both Casshern and kenshin sufer from pinful sin of thy past.

both of thy show are sad sequels style of long TV anime .
Both are dark and violent Samurai based dramas.
