Author has written 1 story for Rurouni Kenshin.

A little about me: I was born and raised in the United States of America in a small and boring old town. Because of this I have a strong desire to travel (and live elsewhere). Places I have been to so far: Canada, Big Island of Hawaii, Japan, Thailand, Nepal, China, England, Hong Kong.

I am indecisive and unsure of what I want do with with my life (mostly in terms of a job/career). I am always striving to become more open-minded and unlearn negative thought patterns that I have kept for a large portion of my life. (I used to think very negatively about myself for many years, my self-esteem is slowly improving now). Sometimes I can be too hard on myself and spend too much time thinking about mistakes I've made.

My zodiac sign is Cancer and I was born in the year of the Snake. According to personality tests I am a INFP (Introverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving) type. I would say a lot of the descriptions I've read for those correlate with me. I consider myself to be quite introverted and I don't mind spending time alone by myself. I do a lot of daydreaming. I'm emotionally sensitive. Sometimes I feel socially awkward and find it hard to keep a conversation going with others. I usually connect with only a few people out of a large group (but I do my best to be friendly to everyone).

In addition to traveling I also like: playing video games, reading comics/manga, watching TV shows and movies, learning about history, drawing (though I rarely draw nowadays), listening to music, dancing, martial arts, (I also like to engage in other physical sports like Badminton but unfortunately find it difficult to find someone I can play with consistently, so I don't get to do it as much as I'd like to.)


One of my biggest fandoms is Rurouni Kenshin. Most of my fanfiction story ideas are for RK. I have some ideas and drafts written that I eventually want to finish and publish here. However, many of my story ideas have no beginning or ending which is why I have so many unfinished drafts.

I would say the best story I am currently working on is entitled 'Destiny', in terms of originality and also knowing how I want it to end. I hope I will have it finished soon but I'm afraid it's nowhere near complete. Many times my imagination will carry me to other story ideas which leads me off track.

Also, although I do strive to make sure I don’t make any spelling or grammar mistakes, I know I can always make improvements. I wish I was better at expressing my imagination but sometimes I feel stuck at how to describe things. I welcome critiques on how to improve my writing.

Speaking of expressing myself - I do enjoy quite a few stories by many authors on this site. Sometimes I’ve read very moving, very powerful stories but was either too busy to leave a review or left a kind of lame one-sentence ‘great job, keep it up’ review. I’ve read several author’s profiles who say they severely dislike when their stories are favorited but no review is left. I just want to apologize for not having time to leave a better expression of my feelings but sometimes I am truly at a loss for words. This is the same problem I have when writing, which is why I will edit a single paragraph so many times that I don’t make much progress! I hope my ideas still get across, even if they aren’t written eloquently.

If you’ve read my profile this far I want to thank you for your interest in my upcoming stories or wanting to know more about me. If you have a twitter account, you can follow me at twitter.com/brukaoru


My thoughts and feelings on Rurouni Kenshin:

I love the original manga and the live-action film. I do not like the OVAs (Trust & Betrayal/Tsuiokuhen; Reflection/Seisōhen; Shin Kyōto Hen) nor do I like the filler episodes of the television anime series. The new manga (Restoration/Kinema-ban) is okay, I view at as more of a fanfiction, I don't think Watsuki wants people to take it too seriously.

The Original Manga: Love almost everything about it. The only nitpick I have is with the ending. It felt rushed. I know that Watsuki-san had plans to do another arc but decided not to. Since I have no clue what that arc would have entailed I cannot say whether it would have been a better conclusion to the story or not.

Also the art style changed near the end of the Jinchuu arc and, in my opinion, is not nearly as good as it was during the Kyoto Arc/beginning of the Jinchuu arc. It looks less realistic, it's not as detailed and looks more 'cartoony' (for lack of a better word). However I know Watsuki-san prefers to draw in this simpler style and has now adapted to it.

Television Series Anime: I watched the TV series long before I read the manga. While the Kyoto Arc follows the manga almost exactly one hundred percent, the filler episodes in the Tokyo Arc and the whole third season of nothing but filler really detracts from the overall quality of the series.

While the fillers have their fair share of comedy moments which will induce some laughs, I can't overlook how completely ridiculous they make the characters at times. Sometimes they are put in such bizarre situations and acting totally out of character with how they are portrayed in the manga. To be honest, I haven't even watched the third season and I don't know if I ever will. From the few short video clips I've seen from it even the voice actors don't sound convincing at times, as if they seem to be thinking 'is this character really acting this way?' It makes me cringe.

I do praise the Media Blasters english dubbing (can't stand any other dubs). I have associated those voice actors with the characters so much that whenever I read the manga or a fanfic I hear their voices.

OVAs (Trust & Betrayal/Tsuiokuhen; Reflection/Seisōhen; Shin Kyōto Hen;): The same feelings I have about the filler episodes in the television series are the same feelings I have for the OVAs. While the animation and music for these OVAs is top-notch, I feel that the characters are not like how they are portrayed in the manga.

I understand that they wanted to make the OVAs more serious and get rid of the comedy aspects but even without the humor factor I still feel that Kenshin and the others have almost completely different personalities. We get very little insight into Kenshin's thought process and a lot of important dialogue is missing and/or new dialogue is sometimes added with poor results.

Example: Manga Volume 19 Chapter 168 VS Tsuiokuhen - The whole conversation between Kenshin and Tomoe after he tells her she should leave and go back to her family, to which she responds she has no family, is completely different in the OVA. This conversation is so meaningful in the manga because it has Kenshin beginning to question himself like never before, but in the OVA this is completely disregarded and replaced with dialogue that is almost meaningless in comparison:

Manga Scene:

  • Kenshin to Tomoe: "I don't know what your situation is, but we're in no state to look after you."
  • Tomoe: "Then will you finish me off, like you did that samurai in black?"
  • (Kenshin then explains why he is a assassin and says he would never harm an unarmed man)
  • Tomoe: "So bad people carry swords, and good people don't? Then, if I had been carrying a sword that night, would you have--"
  • Kenshin (surprised, does not know how to respond): "... That's..."
  • Tomoe (stands up): "Well when you have an answer for me, please let me know." (She leaves the room).
  • Kenshin: "Wait a minute! You're just going to walk out?" (Thinks to himself: "Damn it... Am I going crazy? Or, are things finally starting to make sense...")
  • OVA Scene:

  • Kenshin to Tomoe: “Kyoto is a dangerous place. . . You should find another place to live, a place where you will not need that at all." (He is referring to her tanto, short sword)
  • Tomoe: “A place where there are no assassins? Is that what you mean?"
  • Kenshin: "Hm?" / "What?"
  • (Tomoe takes her tanto back and then the scene is changed)
  • That's just one of the many examples I could have used, but I think it illustrates my feelings well enough. Basically I feel like they have drastically different personalities and fail to capture the true spirit of the characters. I feel the same way about Seisōhen/Reflection.

    Side Note: The English dub title use of 'Samurai X' is ignorant because Kenshin was never a samurai.

    Live Action Movie

    : While many things were changed from the storyline of the manga, I feel that the personality of each character was kept in tact. The casting was fantastic, the action was great and there was a nice mix of comical aspects along with darker angst-filled moments. In fact, I really enjoyed how they made things even more tragic in regards to Megumi's past and the feelings that Kenshin had when he was an assassin. I think this really added a lot of depth.

    I really don't have anything negative to say about this movie. I've seen criticisms from others saying that people who had never read the manga or watched the anime would not appreciate this film as much because the plot is too condensed. Of course it is difficult to fit so much character development in a movie that is only two hours long and is focused primarily on showing action sequences. But even though the creators of this film would like to reach as many audience members as possible I think they were focused foremost on pleasing the fans.

    Too much character development for characters that fans already know well enough would have taken away from the film. The only issue for me were the two villains of Kanryu's group who are never named and who look different from their manga counterparts (Gein and Inui Banjin). Gein played an important role in the manga so if they plan to still use him for the same purpose in the sequels of the movies then they will have to flesh out his character more. Or maybe they will decide to change or discard that plot point in the sequels.

    Rurouni Kenshin's impact on my life

    : I believe Rurouni Kenshin was a major influence in my development of a deep interest for Japan and other East Asian cultures. However I understand that sometimes non-asian people's infatuation for east asian culture can turn into horrible fetishization. Thanks to blogs such as http://thisisnotjapan.tumblr.com/, http://thisisnotkorea.tumblr.com/, and http://thisisnotchina.tumblr.com/ I have become more aware of how much racism asians have to deal with. There is a lot of misinformation on asian cultures in the west which continues to perpetuate very inaccurate stereotypes of asians. (For example: The erroneous portrayals of geishas in 'Memoirs of a Geisha')

    Because I find east asian cultures fascinating I hope to continue learning more about them while also maintaining a respectful viewpoint. Sometimes people can naively go from appreciating a culture to appropriating it, and I want to do my best not to overstep that boundary.


    Some of my favorite quotes:

    “Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it." - Buddha

    "You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection." - Buddha

    "It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop." - Confucius

    "Zen practice isn’t about a special place or a special peace, or something other than being with our life just as it is. It’s one of the hardest things for people to get: that my very difficulties in this very moment are the perfection… When we are attached to the way we think we should be or the way we think anyone else should be, we can have very little appreciation of life as it is…whether or not we commit physical suicide, if our attachment to our dream remains unquestioned and untouched, we are killing ourselves, because our true life goes by almost unnoticed." - Charlotte Joko Beck

    “Whoever gossips to you will gossip about you.” - Spanish Proverb

    “There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.” Author Unknown

    “Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.” ― Anthony Robbins

    "The only Zen you find on the tops of mountains is the Zen you bring up there." - Robert M. Pirsig
