Heart of Sword by AmukaUroy Heart of Sword by AmukaUroy
BIG/LONG FILE!

One of my all-time favorite manga/animes of all time, in which I not only love both the anime and manga, but I love both the dub and original Japanese audio! [In fact, I love the English one more]

It's a perfect blend of comedy, emotional scenes, and action! With it's amazing characters and story, Rurouni Kenshin has been a favorite of mine since I can remember, so-- Here's to you, you wondering samurai, thanks for the amazing story!

My favorite panel has to be the one with Kaoru crying and Kenshin walking away! Also, not that it matters, but the Sojiro Seta VS Kenshin fight has to be my favorite fight ever in the history of foreverness.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Holy Cheese-sticks Batman, this took FOREVER! I know, I know, I forgot: Aoshi, Misao, Megumi, Yumi and others, but I'm so tired of coloring this, I'm hoping you'll cut me some slack, yes?

The Battosai/Kenshin part I was hesitant about, because I had to "cut out" both of their ponytails to make them stand so close to each other, which made Kenshin look slightly odd, but I wanted to emphasis how close they were to the same person [well duh], and I also debated whether or not I should have made Kenshin's scar a full cross or just the first cut like he has in the OAV's

Rurouni Kenshin [c] Nobuhiro Watsuki

PS: Didn't draw Enshi cuz I went along with the anime storyline, and nothing after Shishio since everything after that fight in the anime is pretty much filler

PSS: And no, no Aoshi simply because I forgot all about him and don't wanna draw more at the moment, maybe later I'll add him


Off to finish commissions! :dance:

There arent a lot of anime that are better in english. Pokemon, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Rurouni Kenshin are some of the few. Loved this anime when it aired on toonami. <3

Each of these little scenes/moments would have made an awesome artwork - combining all of them is almost too much for me. *fans herself*
Thanks so much for getting me all nostalgic and in Kenshin mood.

Major fan of the series. You did such a nice job on the characters. I specifically liked how you drew Kenshin as Battosai. :hug: Good job honey. :huggle:

waaaahhh!!! i LOVE the composition in this!!! it looks great, even if you had to cut off kenshin's ponytail! xP
And i have to agree. Kenshin is DEFINITELY my favorite manga of all time also. The anime i also like, but it's kind of sillier than the manga haha. I also prefer the english dub!
In any case, there's a reason it's a classic =)
It's sooo amazing!!! x3

Ah, RuroKen. One of my most favorite series ever (even though I've only read the manga). I loved all 28 volumes, and I'd reread them if given the chance.

My fave char was always Sano, but Kenshin could kick major ass with that sakabato.

Oh my god, it's an awesome picture of an awesome anime/manga from an awesome artist...
And the title is fitting too, because that is Kenshin's name, and it sorta sums this pictures all up, very full of feelings indeed :D

That fight was pretty epic!! But I think the one with the.. Shinnou Wipou guy was pretty epic well, first time ever present day Battousai making his appearance!!
*ahem.. Well yes, that's all I have to say!

That's a cool picture. :3 My favourite panel is the Kaoru crying. It's all dark and light blues at the same time.
I grew up watching Kenshin. xD Not all the time, but I remember those times fondly.

Thank you for reminding me of the manga that made my childhood. Thank you so, so much. You did a good job with each panel. And that fight with Sojiro was so heart-rending, I go back and read it over and over again . . . out loud. I completely agree with you about its awesomeness.

Seriously, thank you!!

I think I love you even more for this.

I was annoyed when I found out that they weren't going to do a full reboot of the series (AS WAS MENTIONED.) but instead an OVA of the Kyoto arc from Misao's point of view (whut) but anything Rurouni Kenshin is better than nothing I suppose >_<
