Same character...very different storylines, very different animation, very different dialogues. What are your thoughts?
Me, I totally loved the first half of Samurai X - Wow it was stunningly beautiful. I was amazed at how much I enjoyed and related to the characters. Generally speaking I enjoy a good tragedy. But then, the 2nd half...what the hell was that?!?
I did not think that I would like Rurouni Kenshin after seeing the movie in the Samurai X box set. So I was a little slow to start watching the series. But now that I have finished the 1st season, I would say that I have enjoyed it more than I expected.
I prefer the dark, brooding, stoic Kenshin from Samurai X to the comic, often bumbling Kenshin of the series.
