why do people like this show? it's literally a pile of steaming shit, packed with every bad cliche there is about anime
>>
maybe it made most of those cliches
>>
>>138736448
I agree, it was trash that wowed people with "muh speshul teckneeks" and its one-dimensionality was painful.
>>
>>138736823
it is shit either way. the protagonist is a pussy, the plot is shit, fights take 3 episodes each out of which 4/5 of the time is talking, the list fucking goes on.

the ova is the only redeeming thing related to the franchise
>>
funny thing is, having watched this as a kid i thought until recently that all anime was shit like this.
>>
I couldn't make it through the manga, dropped it about 7 volumes in. Kenshin is likable but everything else is so cliched and generic.

Samurai X is good though.
>>
>>138736448
Because everybody was a kid back then you idiot.
>>
>>138736448
So what amazing anime did you watch that has no cliche?
>>
>>138737144
I watched your mother; nothing she did was cliche until everyone else started doing her, too.
>>
>>138737144
last anime i watched was psycho-pass

cant even compare psycho-pass to this crap
>>
>>138736972

Nigga you dropped right as you were getting into one of the best Shonen arcs of all time.
>>
The manga is good. The anime is so full of episodic OC shit it makes it hard to sit through. Even when it does follow the original story it tries to do it's own thing from time to time which fucks the flow
>>
>>138736448
Because your taste is shit.
>>
It's pretty bland but people like it because of nostalgia. Watch the OVAs

All these fucking neo /a/ kids complaining about 20 fucking years old shows.

Show some respect you fucking autist this show is older than you, this made some of those cliches
>>
>>138737316
>psycho-pass
>better than kenshin

Extreme shit taste.
>>
>>138738875
When I was a fucking kid, I was watching Tekkaman Blade and Dangaioh. Only hope is these lot get better with age.
>>
>>138738875
Yu Yu Hakusho and DB are way better and they are even older moron.
>>
Thats true, and the last part really took it on.


Then the author Went fucking insane and made some Frankenstein manga(yes he did, not sure if its editors or what)

The manga is even worse, with ink everywere, kenshin in real Life was a pussy which people fabricated incredible amount of stories of his acomplishments, which was shit.
Thats why he lost in the sengoku era, and tokugawa won.
>>
>>138736448
I remember this show and all the memories I have are beautiful in my mind

evangelion is from the same period and it isn't a complete pile of diarrhea

How many good long runners are there?

Dragon Ball
Slam Dunk
One Piece
Detective Conan
Gintama

Cant think of much else tough.
>>
>>138737316
Psycho-pass is equally as crappy.

>>138736823
like what?

Dunno about whole show, but that one Trust and Betrayal OVA was great.
>>
>>138736448
the manga is even worse

the last arc and that forced and shitty happy ending is a disaster

OVAs are way better and without any "comic relief"
>>
>>138738848
>Watch the OVAs
Newfag detected. Only one OVA was good, the rest were absolute shit-tier.
>>
>>138736448
The characters and story were pretty good especially for a shounen series at the time (yes even compared to YYH and DBZ). It's only the fights that get really fucking ridiculous but even then, a lot of the fighting styles of the core characters actually inform their personality traits and they tend to tie in with some motifs and symbolism from myths/legends which serve to frame the story.

Who the fuck are the two fags behind them?

Rorouni kenshin in general is nothing special aside from the nostalgia boost some people have.

But from it came two of the greatest arcs (Kyoto and trust and betrayal) that no matter how many times i watch and compare with other manga/anime arcs still stand up to their status as best
>>
I have watched the whole thing 3 times contiguously and probably enough isolated episodes to add up to two more times (watching it for 17 years of your life does wonders). Read the manga thrice once I discovered manga was a thing. The filler arcs after the Kyoto one in the show were meh but not so mediocre I'd be super salty about watching them. Plus the Feng shui arc was so bombastic I had fun. Manga I feel did decently well in having already a tragedy with tomoe and not making one out of kaoru. If anything the super depressing ova that hinted at the revenge arc did worse as kenshin didn't really put up much of a fight.

Kenshin vs Saitou still ranks pretty high for me, tee bee aich.
>>
>>138739577
Won't fill your stomach up, tho
>>
>>138738875
it's literally the same type of retarded kids that go to /mu/ and say the beatles are fucking terrible, now.. I'm not a fan or anything but saying they're TERRIBLE is just stupid and you're just trying to be le edgy kid that dislikes old shit xD, same with this..
>>
Shishio Makoto
>>
Kyoto was good. Most of the episodes before were mediocre and I didn't even bother with the anime original bullshit after it.

Kenshin, Shishio, and Saito were good characters and the parts I did watch were enjoyable. I'd give it at least a 7/10.
>>
Rurouni Kenshin would benefit from a reboot with budget. There are still a few excellent cuts, but the fight scenes overall haven't aged very well.
>>
>>138740723
why do you think that?

>>138740808
>>138740840
the ova was surprisingly good, it removed all the unnecessary comic-relief and retarded support characters, plus the combat was realistic and exciting
>>
>>138745146
I don't think the Crystal/Super/tri treatment could save it
>>
>>138737316
>>138736448
such an obvious redditor its disgusting

i guarantee you have seen less than 15 anime

You know who is older than you? Hitler is. Show some respect to him.
>>
>>138747042
I meant most of the recent reboots are generally shit. Although that could be down to toei I suppose
>>
>>138736448
this anime was old, the cliche doesnt exist then
>>
>>138738919
then those 2 are also cliche
>>
>>138736448
>every and cliche there is about anime
So you've only watched battle shounen, or what?
>>
>>138747337
I already do

comparing 0 kills anime to 6 million kills killer

>retard alert
>>
>>138736823
Something like this?

>MC says he is going to use his secret skill
>The rest of the cast repeats what the MC said and proceeds to explain said skill
>Bad guy counters saying he is also is going to use his secret skill and proceeds to explain in detail why is amassing
>Eventually they use their skills along with an internal monolog explaining what is happening

In the end they expend more time talking than fighting.
