For me, Richard Cansino is an A tier VA for happy, carefree Kenshin, and a B- tier VA for Battousai mode Kenshin. Meanwhile, Shanon Weaver is a C tier VA for happy, carefree Kenshin, but an A tier VA for Battousai Kenshin. He just has that emotionless, dull tone to his voice that makes him convincing as a killer, and I don't think Cansino would've done quite as well for Trust & Betrayal as he did. However, for the other entries in the RK franchise... man I wish they got Cansino back.

I'd still take Shanon Weaver as Kenshin than the terrible replacements they got for the other main cast though.

I used to completely agree with APGamerZ. The reason i think that the OVA is disliked by so many is that it changes the personality of all of the characters into something much more depressing and it's almost as though they are completely different people than the ones we grew to love. It's not that he did a terrible job acting, he is just too different for us to think of him as Kenshin and that is why we dislike him. this is just my view though after rewatching it after a good few years.

The only role I liked him as is Ginji, maybe because Ginji is suppose to sound annoying.

Um no J Shannon Weaver plays Kenshin in the OVAs and movie

Richard Cansino (credited Richard Hayworth) played Kenshin in the tv series dub (both Sony and Mediablasters version)

Lol the TV show on cartoon network (english obviously) was the same person I'm pretty sure...And Richard Casino DID NOT PLAY Kenshin Himura (English Version). I looked it up on my entire DVD collection of Samurai X/Rurouni Kenshin. He plays every single English role. You can look it up if you want I know I'm right.

I can't believe this guy played Kenshin. He was terrible. He is the reason the OVA dubs are terrible.

However, Richard Cansino was excellent in Rurouni Kenshin the TV show. I hope they redub the OVAs with Richard.
