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

Seisouhen is a feast for the senses. Sound and sightwise, nothing much else can compare to it. The art is crisp and beautiful and the sound track is superb.

However, for story and characterization, it is simply terrible. Seisouhen attempts to compress the ten volume Jinchuu Arc into an hour and a half. It horribly butchers the characters and makes them do things they would never have done in the canon story.

It reduces Enishi from a brilliant protagonist to one dimensional psychopath who swoops in and kidnaps Kaoru in order to bate Kenshin to fight. He is basically a second Udo Jinei.
