How the hell is that an opinion? The ratio of all the characters' lines and facial expressions in the manga's flashback to all the characters' lines and facial expressions in Trust/Betrayal is a large one and can't be overlooked. Oh, and Kenshin did not act the same in the manga and the OVA. In the manga, he's one of the guys and hangs out with them. In the OVA he's a mindless drone that just kills, sleeps, and occasionally speaks when spoken to. As for Tomoe, I'll admit that her personality was the same, but a lot of her lines and emotions were cut out. I won't even get into how the bad guys were handled. Why? They never said anything in the OVAs so I just can't compare them. So, the only opinion in this post is the quote of your post, where you call all of my arguments "just plain rediculous."
