I'm pretty damned disappointed by this. I suppose seeing the Jinchu arc animated is too much to ask for. Heaven forbid that the Kenshin anime gets proper closure by seeing the true series finale animated. I still may check the OVAs out since I never saw the anime but read/bought the manga instead. That's a big maybe, that key illustration isn't doing it for me.

At least there's still Persona 4: The Animation to look forward to this fall...

The characters of Saint Beast look almost like CLAMP's design, so yeah. Disappointment, disappointment.

I'm disappointed. It turned out to be nothing to look forward to.
And why from Misao's point of view? Does it really have to be one of the most annoying characters of this manga? She wasn't even there when the battle took place.

Wait... if it's Misao point of view.... she wasn't in the real battle with Shishio.... ¬¬
Will they totally remake that in the plot?
Anyway, yep, like most of people in this thread, I'm really REALLY disappointed. I was hoping for a new series and they come with this.... bullsh*t.

Saito's new seiyu is cool, otherwise, nothing exciting. I thought it'd be great news (now everything was announced, but a oneshot manga or something! now THAT would be awesome), but the picture... Uhh... What the heck is that shiny-fluffy atmosphere, gosh, it's not an otome game!
Plus it's too CG-ish... I can't understand why it's so difficult to produce the manga's style...

EDIT: Just realized that Studio Deen made the latter part of the series (i.e. which is possibly one of the worst filler season that was ever made, with badly written script, even worse graphics, and only the openings and endings were worth watching; plus it had no real ending >__>). No wonder they came up with these ovas >__>

EDIT2: Wait... SO NO JINCHUU-ARC?? THIS is the new anime, and that's it? ....
Great. Just great... Way to make fans mad >__>

Highly disappointed that the hyped up new Kenshin anime is this, I wanted a proper Jinchuu arc to be made not this shitty OVA about the Shishio battle in Misao's POV. WTF Studio DEEN!!!

Yeah, it doesn't mean that another season isn't coming after this OVA. And besides, Kenshin and most of the other male characters have always had the Bishounen look, it's not all that surprising.

No. They are only replacing Saito's, cuz you know, the guy who voiced him kinda died in 2006.

I don't see why people is disappointed, As a true Kenshin fan, I'm happy with whatever they give from Kenshin, hell, I wouldn't be disappointed if they give an OVA series based on only Kaoru!
