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?

I don't know , but given kenshin 's personality, he could be strabbon (speling?)as mule.and as my signature in another forum said :"oro~~it's not pink, it's magenta de gozarou yo !!"

Ha ha! I remember that sig. It was from RK Dreams, right? Shame that board's gone.

Hiko called Kenshin a mule as well. I guess if the sandal fits... ;-)

Because he left Hiko before his training was complete.

Re: kenshin's life

Well, that's just in Seisouhen...

In that version of events, Kenshin continues to feel the need to atone even after passing on the Sakabatou to Yahiko, so he ditches Kaoru and Kenji and leaves to wander for extended periods. Kaoru grows depressed, Kenji grows resentful and they die at the end.

It's really a very stupid OVA because Watsuki wrote the story to have a happy ending. Sony Studios thought they could do better.
