  • Tatsumi and Kashiwazaki Nenji are two badass old men.

    • Aoshi00

      Not just Tatsumi & Okina, Gein’s an old man under the skull mask too.. so 3 badass old dudes added to the roster :)  People were disappointed he wasn’t good looking like Vega at the time lol.. Poor Okina got diced by Aoshi…

      Hannya and Kanryu are pretty cool and Iwanbou #3 puppet controlled by Gein…  still, I’ll be imagining a Kenshin game Persona 4 style in my mind, playing out the Gein vs Aoshi fight in the blazing fire *.*… and no Jinchuu anime (even though Enishi was telling Gein to fight Kenshin in the screenshot..)

  • Gein was definitely one of the more absurd Rurouni Kenshin villains (especially his mega-robot… thing) but it still stings to see all these jinchu arc characters without knowing whether we’ll ever see a proper anime adaptation.

    Also, must be weird to see the totally incongruous art styles of the TV series, the original OVAs and the new OVAs all stuffed into the same game.

      If you think that was absurd you missed Fuji’s attack to the Aoiya

    • Aoshi00

      The different art styles are not that weird.. Miku and Asura’s Wrath had different artists illustrating for the games’ cutscenes too, same for Street Fighters.. but yeah, they’re really mixing everything together to tempt long time fans..

      Hopefully this game doesn’t suck as bad as the first one, but have my doubts.  At least the live action movie looks awesome like Phoenix Wright, and I hope Part 2 of Shin Kyoto-hen OVA also turns out to be better.. disappointed in Furuhashi Kazuhiro, he was so good directing the previous TV series/OVA..

      Actually I quite liked the Gein vs Kenshin fight in the manga, seeing Kenshin shredding that mecha to pieces w/ Amakakeru Ryuu no Hirameki was satisfying.. Gein was a formidable opponent.. would definitely be something to see it animated.. imagine this fight in 2D sprites like P4 Arena, would look so epic. Gein would be a great char, one in the form of Iwanbou #3 and the other fighting as himself like against Aoshi w/ the web..

    No teenager Yahiko or Kenji Himura in the game?
