Alright. Rurouni Kenshin. -Spoilers ahead, I suppose-
Why did they have to spoil my wonderfully serious and historical Kenshin?
After watching the prequel OVA before the series, I find myself completely digusted with the end result. The supporting cast of characters are wholly annoying, I find a large amount of filler episodes, and my once wonderfully realistic swordplay is replaced with this fantasy-styled crap that I come to expect from inuyasha. On top of all of this, these annoying support characters rub off on kenshin, making him annoying as well at some points. -Annoyed-
My two cents.
Mmmn. Sounds like I have some new titles to add to my want to watch list. Good thing I have these two weeks of vacation to kill. xD
As for the anime.. I liked it because eh.. I love the whole utopia collapse theme that seems common in fiction over the years. Plus, it had just enough action to keep me excited, and it even inspired a new bit of writing out of me. -Shrug- All comes down to personal taste, I s'pose.
Haha, reading over your review and thinking back, your view does make quite a bit of sense, but eh, I'm never too overly analytical of anime. I don't really expect a whole lot, but that's probably a result of how little I've actually seen. Good review, though.
Ohhhh yes, I should have recognized the proxy mask. (btw, when you reply to a comment, click 'comment back' so it shows up on the other person's profile :) otherwise they might forget they commented you and won't see your response!)
I actually haaaaaated Ergo Proxy. I fell in love with it in the beginning because of how cyberpunk and awesome it looks, but was dreadfully disappointed with how pseudo-intellectual it is. Here's my review in case you are interested, heh.
As far as intellectual stuff, I think there's a lot better titles out there such as Paranoia Agent, Kino's Journey, Haibane Renmei, Mushishi, etc.
That is.. Ergo proxy. I've become obsessed. It's so stylish and haughty. I can't help myself. Apparently, though, by this site's standards, I've been going about this anime thing all wrong. you're supposed to watch it?!
