    didn't see it, didn't watch the series much too, all I have in my possession is kenshin, the vagabond.

    Movie? I don't know which movie you're talking about actually.
    I have the movie in which the past of Kenshin is show, how he got his scar and all.
    And then I have two other DVD's which I don't yet know what is on it.
    Which movie do you mean?

    No didn't see the movie. Was going to buy it, along with the complete series, but it was 40$ cheaper if you got just the complete series.

    samurai x his how kenshin got his scars and everything. i didnt like it at all. it didnt have any of the comedy the series had, and it was much to tragic.

    then it is probably kenshin the vagabond or Kenshin Tsuioko Hen as they call it

    I liked it, I didn't mind that it was tragic, not at all, I liked the bloody and gore in it. It's suppose to be tragic...

    I think the movie more stands on its own, rather being connected with the serie

    you can notice his look is a little different, his hair is more like red brown, instead of red.

    Well I don't know, there is of course a bit of 'comedy' in the series, but overall it is pretty serious series. It is based on actual Japanese history and I don't think there was much fun in the fighting there *grins*. And if you take Kenshin, his life had never been good if you look at his history. The dead of his 'caretakers' (slavers), his hard training with his Master in Hiten Mitsurugi, his life as a battousai, etc. It is only when he meets Kaoru and the others that he actually starts to enjoy life a bit more. The tragedy of his former life also runs through his 'current' life, in his scar. It is mentioned once in the manga (don't know about the series) that it is strange that the scar is still so vivid while normally after all that time it should have faded at least a little. I think it is only after the series, in the epilogue that you learn the scar stayed because of his feeling of guilt. And I think it was when he marries Kaoru (or is it even later?) that he finally accepts and gets over the guilt and then his scar indeed fades. So even though there is perhaps from time to time a bit of 'fun' in the series, the tragedy of his past still runs through it. And I like it! Life is not all happy happy joy joy and I like it that a series shows life is not all fun. *shrugs*

    WHAT? I'm sorry, but that series was absouletly amazing. I'm absouletly in love with it.

    It was much better than the second part, and it was just plain awesome.

    I'm not sure what you're talking about but he's talking about the movie of "Kenshin Tsuioko Hen" not a series

    Well I know this movie as Kenshin Tsuioko Hen, which goes back to Kenshin's roots. A pretty intense tragic anime that also tells you how he got the scar, but Kenshin (the member) himself refers to the movie as Samurai X
