    Where does the scene with Kenshin fighting the three guys with chains come from (it was in the Toonami closing credits for the edited dub). I have all the DVDs and have seen every episode, opening, closing, OVA, and the movie. I have never seen that clip. Does anyone know where it's from?

    i think that it was just added specially in the credits (it was also shown in the 1st opening song)

    i don't think that there was actually a scene where he fought those guys in the acutual story

    I know, but where did Cartoon Network get the footage?

    I think it was one of the early episodes (what would be in the Season One box set). I do recall Himura battling several men with chains, and kicking their tails in the end (natch).

    It's been a while since I've seen those eps (and just got done finishing Season Three), but I'm pretty sure it was gleaned from an actual incident from the series (be it a flashback or otherwise) and stuck into the credits.

    It's possible I'm confusing it with a similar incident in the show, but I don't think so.

    I recall the guys that Saitou sent after Kenshin to distract him... can't remember his name... attacked Kenshin with chains. And I think the Hiruma brothers hired someone during a filler.

    The two brothers attacked with a mace and wires. The guy Saitou sent after Kenshin was only one guy. So, the scene where he fights the chain guys is 100% new for the opening title.

    Exactly. My question is...where did it come from?

    It was created just for the opening title. It is not part of the manga or anime. They are not named characters. It never actually happened.

    By the way, I keep replying to your posts a year after you make them.
