>>138408238 Watsuki has said that Hiko is the strongest character in the series. And it makes sense, since you probably don't remember why he calls Kenshin his "idiot apprentice." Kenshin turning a new leaf and wanting to leave his old ways of an assassin behind inspire Hiko, which is why he agrees to teach Kenshin the Amakakeru Ryu no Hirameki. Hiko was supposed to die after being hit with that move, but since Kenshin usedthe blunt-sided blade, he livesd. Thus, Kenshin doesn't become Hiko the XIV and does not have the authority to teach Kenta (his son) his style, causing drama. The point is, Hiko has full-mastery of the style and can use it without repercussions. Kenshin does not. Kenshin doesn't have the physical strength and fitness required to wield the style to its limit and to not suffer from the physical strain. Hiko is /fit/ as fuck not for looks, but to because he doesn't want to have a weak-ass body as he ages (the prime example being Kenshin himself). Oh, and his cape alone weighs like 200 pounds nigga, that shit actually "limits" his usage of Hiten Misturugi.
Besides, it seems like you are conveniently ignoring the fact that Kenshin tank'd both Aoshi and Sojiro before getting to Shishio.

Yet he barely did shit. It was Kenshin who defeated Shishio, Saito, and all those guys. Hiko defeated a giant and bandits, at most.
>>138409109 >Hiko just wanted to get drunk on his moonshine sake in the mountains and make some clay pots, not play daycare for Japan's problems.
Kenshin > Hiko in terms of achievements.
It's also worthless to ride someone's jock when he barely did anything. That's like claiming someone is better than Michael Jordan skill-wise, but it's still Jordan who got all the glory and championships.
>>138409048 Do you not know how to read? I don't care about what he did or did not do, Hiko is the strongest character in the series. There is no debate. And the reason he doesn't fight anyone is because he was a fucking hippie that did not believe in fighting for political causes. Which is exactly why Kenshin takes on the Juppongatana.
>>138408996 Not even b8. PK had a better voice cast, better music, better plot, was Shinsengumi-centric, and had virtually no retarded "styles" for gimmicks that RK relied on to even push the story. PK > RK objectively, across the spectrum. PK even had the superior redhead. Ruroni Kenshin is the Boba Fett of "historical" anime, and its fanbase is more cancer--ridden than Fateshit.
I've never seen anything to do with Rorouni Kenshin, but I hate it. >in college >this dude Jared Riches randomly shows up and buts into every conversation and starts talking about Rorouni kenshin >randomly punches and kicks the air while doing this >we could be talking about cars or class work or whatever and he'll come over and talk about kenshin and sanosuke and all that shit >"practices" the hiten mitsurugi style with a broom handle >every day kenshin is everything >every day everything is kenshin >nobody likes him because all he does it talk about kenshin
>>138410668 >better music >better voice cast >better plot litereally wut? if I didn't know any better then you're probably just a stinking fujo the only valid opinion that you made is about the "retarded" styles and even then that was "subjective". go fucking kill yourself.
It was implied that Shuntensatsu was roughly equal in draw speed to Hirameki, but vastly inferior in terms of strength/damage(Hirameki could create a vacuum, wtf.) However, Soujiro could easily dodge Kenshin's succession technique if he was in top form and his emotions were sealed. The same couldn't be said for Kenshin vs Shunten, he was getting wrecked by it at three steps minus.
>>138413670 >Not even a single one of the "monsters" he spared went on to kill any innocent people. Not as far as we know. Probably be because this manga is moralfag preaching propaganda,so of course everything he does never backfires.
>>138414002 >he does never backfires. but it does backfires during the kyoto's arc. it was said later that japan adopted shishio's ideal in the end. kenshin a moralfag, but he's not a moralfag that would say "you're not living your life correctly" and then goes on and rejected other people's believes. he even respected saito's "aku soku zan".
