We tried so hard to make it grow [Jul. 25th, 2007|11:04 am]

So in Tsuiokuhen, we see Tomoe go out to the out house (I guess) and then we see blood slide down the screen. Next we see this statue wrapped up in red that I heard somewhere is a Japanese fertility god. Finally, we see Tomoe crying over the seedlings that died in the rain, saying, "We tried so hard to make it grow."

So uh, was she supposed to have had a miscarriage, or was she just on her period? If she did have a miscarriage, I guess Kiyosato was the father since she and Kenshin hadn't "done it" yet at that point.

If Kenshin had stayed in the Kiheitai [Jul. 25th, 2007|11:01 am]

He undoubtedly would have still killed, but I think he would have been OK because he would have been doing so as a soldier on the battlefield, not as an assassin in dark, narrow alleys.

Thoughts?

Did Tomoe and Iizuka know that each other was working for the Yaminobu, or were they totally in the dark about that? I think at least Tomoe was kept in the dark, though perhaps Iizuka knew.

Kenshin the rebel [Jul. 20th, 2007|12:21 pm]

OK, I'll get the ball rolling here...

I was reading on Nobukaze that during the 1870s, the Meiji police forced men to cut their hair and give up their hakama in addition to enforcing the sword ban.

Of course we know Kenshin kept his sword, hakama and long hair well into the decade. To be honest, I just can't see Kenshin donning Western clothes. So is our Rurouni a bit of a rebel? Was he making a political statement by refusing to conform?
