I'd recently gotten my grubby lil hands on vol 1 of the Rurouni Kenshin graphic novel by Shonen Jump and Viz. I have to say that this is one excellent series. The mix of romantic comedy and swordwielding action make for one excellent read. I really loved the creator's blending of Japanese history with his own fiction as well as the fact that Kenshin was based off an actual person from their history. This combined with seeing The Last Samurai made December a great month in '03 for me. Bad thing is it makes me yearn to further add to my collection of samurai swords. I am, however, interested about the plausibility of Kenshin's weapon. The sakabatou, or reverse-edged sword, seems like it'd be possible to create and wield efficiently. Just from look alone, it would appear that it would weigh more than your typical samurai sword. I tried swinging my sword reversed, with the sharp edge towards me, and I could already feel the difference. Anyone's opinion on the matter?
I thought about asking in the "What Current Anime are You Watching..." thread, but I figured it might be better to create a separate thread. Would anyone have more information as to what will be included in this LE box set? Google Translate doesn't help much at all. I went to the official website (using Google Translate) and it seems that there are two OSTs included along with the Blu-rays and DVDs. It also seems a tapestry of some sort will be included.... Everything else is gibberish to me. A Google search doesn't seem to come up with anything useful either. I've tried narrowing down my search results but I had no luck. I'm wondering if it will be worth it to spend ~$300+ on this LE set or to skip it all together. I previously purchased the NISA box sets a long while back without realizing what exactly I was getting. To my (and many others') dismay, the subtitles are hard-coded with some questionable translations. Anyone else thinking of picking this LE box set up? Thoughts/Opinions? Thanks!
