The Kenshingumi and Others as Cars
Disclaimer: Rurouni Kenshin is not mine in any way shape or form. It belongs to the great, almighty Watsuki-sama, and I am doing this without his permission.
Note: I came up with this crazy idea on a vacation in San Francisco while watching cars go by. You can get weird ideas while you're on vacation. Any other suggestions welcome! (my choices in regular and others in italics)
Himura Kenshin / minivan.
All right, all right, I know what you're thinking. But let's take a minute to compare. Minivans are dependable and friendly. Nearly every family I can think of has owned one at some time, and they can carry a lot of baggage. Kenshin is immensely dependable and friendly. He is an important part of the weird Kenshingumi family, and also carries a lot of baggage.
Other suggestions: something eco-friendly (like a Prius maybe?)
Battousai / black motorcycle, with red flames
To blend with the shadows and scare the crap out of you when speeding around a corner at night.
Other suggestions: Orange County Black Widow, black GSX 1300R Hayabusa 2003
Kamiya Kaoru / Blue Civic
Something pretty, somewhat practical, and more reliable than it looks. Also, if treated right and lacking any emotional hang-ups about its previous drivers, will last for years and not get randomly slashed to death in an accident involving jealous, psycho ninja gangs and revolutionaries.
Other suggestions: blue Chevy
Myojin Yahiko ?
Other suggestions: go-cart
Sagara Sanosuke / red Corvette
Well, with Sano it'd have to be a red car, right? I can't picture him with a white one. And you can easily imagine Corvette drivers to be cocky and self-assured, yes?
Other suggestions: red pickup
Other suggestions: Viper
Makimachi Misao / Volkswagen Beetle
Misao has to be a Bug. Has to be. I can't think of any car that fits her better. Both are insanely happy, little and cute and can be very annoying.
Other suggestions: Vespa, Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle
Shinomori Aoshi / the Batmobile
Just kidding. But similar looking.
Other suggestions: white Camaro with black rims
Anji / Humvee
Both are huge. 'nuff said
Hiko Seijirou / Lamborghini
He'd be arrogant enough to own one, wouldn't he? I mean, this is Hiko we're talking about.
Other suggestions: Ferrari
Shishio Makoto / a tank of gasoline
Okay, not really a car. But hey, flammable.
