Shin Kyoto Hen (新京都編) [Nov. 29th, 2011|12:16 pm]
The Ultimate Rurouni Kenshin FAQ

This may be a bit late in saying, but I'm quite disheartened to have to say that the "new RK series" isn't a series, per se, but rather an animated movie that's being split into two parts.

It's called Shin Kyoto Hen (新京都編) which literally means "New Kyoto Compilation". It's a re-telling of the Kyoto arc of Kenshin from the point of view of Misao. All of the original cast has returned except for the guy who did Saitou (since he's dead).

If anyone is interested in watching the short trailer for it (no subtitles) you can do so: by clicking here.

There's also talks of a Rurouni Kenshin live action movie that will supposedly be released in 2012 in Japan..

I'll have to update the FAQ when I get some more free time with this new information.

Rurouni Kenshin FAQ version 3.0.0 [Apr. 21st, 2011|09:39 pm]

Just a quick note to say that I've updated the FAQ to version 3.0.0. This is a huge overhaul, though you may not think so just by looking at it at a quick glance.

I have taken the entire FAQ and converted it over to a new program. The one I was using to update the FAQ was becoming really outdated and didn't allow colors or Japanese text. The one I'm using now does. So as you peruse the FAQ you may see Japanese text now.

I've also broken up some of the questions under a new group/bookmark for the old anime and created a new one for the upcoming anime.

So while there's not really any new questions this time around, it's laying the ground for future versions. :)

Enjoy!

Shishio's Body Has Frozen Over.. [Apr. 18th, 2011|04:23 pm]
The Ultimate Rurouni Kenshin FAQ

The above is a picture of a page in Jump Square magazine that announces a NEW RUROUNI KENSHIN series that will begin soon.

Yes, that's right! A new RK series. As of now, though, the details are pretty sparse. It doesn't say if it's rebooting the whole series or if it'll be just the Jinchuu arc finally animated or what.

It also mentions that the two OAVs and the RK movie will be released on Blu-Ray.

There's also a RK PSP game out in Japan right now.


Is anyone out there excited to hear that RK might become really popular again and be in the forefront of people's minds with a new series? Or would you rather it just stay the way it is and be a cult classic?


Seems I have a lot of updating to the FAQ to do in the near future. :)

Her Most Beautiful Smile [Dec. 20th, 2010|01:16 pm]
The Ultimate Rurouni Kenshin FAQ

iyouboushi
Hey guys. I just thought I'd make a quick post because there were a number of people trying to find the name of this song. At first I had no idea what it was but I did eventually remember where I had heard it and found it.

The song is played in at least two spots. It plays in episode #72 around the 7 min mark and again in episode #88 when Yutarou is alone in the Kamiya Dojo at night. The name of the song, a piano piece, is called Her Most Beautiful Smile and is available on the Rurouni Kenshin Ishin Shishi no Requiem (the RK movie) soundtrack. It should be track #6.

So if you're one of those people who have been trying to find the name of that song for a bit of time, enjoy! It's a nice track. :)

After a year, a new version of the RK FAQ has been released!

Don't get too excited though. There's really not much that's new in it.

But I hope you enjoy it anyway.

RK FAQ Version 2.1.6




Updated:

* ISBN #'s for the English Kanzenban releases ("Viz Big")

New Questions:

* What is the name of the song that plays when Yutarou is alone in the Kamiya dojo at night in episode 88? [note, this question is only in there as an invitation for people to submit an answer as I do not know the name of that song as of this time]

* What is the name of the song that plays when Kenshin is trying to protect Kaoru from the pirates in episode 25?

* What's the deal with Houji?




As a reminder, the FAQ has a new message board topic. So please don't be shy. Come register, post, maybe look around the other parts of the board and have a little fun. We don't bite......hard. I promise. :)

The Ultimate Rurouni Kenshin FAQ

Hi guys! I just watched RuroKen this summer and I must say, indeed, it is very addicting. But I have a question.
 

  • Was that Tomoe's grave Kenshin and Kaoru visited on Episode 95? If not, to whom is it then? If it was, why did Kaoru have to say that she and Kenshin are still far apart even if she already knows about Tomoe (the scene on whch Kaoru and Kenshin are in the same room)?
  • Are there any news regarding the animation of the Jinchuu Arc? Even if I'm just a new fan, I'm frustrated on not having seen it animated. If there are still nothing, is there still hope that this wish would not be futile?
  • I've read the part on the manga why Yumi didn't like the Meiji Government, but what about Houji? Are there concrete reasons why he didn't like the Meiji Government or was it all because he and Shishio have the same ideologies?
  • Why did the people behind the animation of RuroKen decided to create an OVA instead of having the Jinchuu Arc animated? (I mean, hey, if the latter gets done, they'll have more profit.)
That's all. I hope my questions make sense. Thank you for taking your time. I hope getting responses from you soon. :)

RK FAQ Board Thread [Jun. 6th, 2010|08:03 pm]
The Ultimate Rurouni Kenshin FAQ

iyouboushi
For what it's worth to anyone on here, I've created a new thread on my message board dedicated to the RK FAQ. Can find it here

This doesn't change anything here, of course. You can still feel free to post your questions here (though it's getting to the point of where almost everything has been asked, lol). But if you ever want to join a relatively small community of people who happen to like anime/manga among other things, feel free. We don't bite, I promise. :)

Song in Episode 26 [Dec. 24th, 2009|09:47 pm]

 Hi! I have been a fan of Rurouni Kenshin for a long time but I don't know what song is played in episode 26. The part wherein Kenshin is being held prisoner and looks up to the moon and he sees it isn't a full moon. I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me. The instrument used was a guitar. There's also a flute version of it I believe which is played after the episode in the Animeworks english version.
