“Rurouni Kenshin” is one of my all-time favorite anime. Even if it’s been a long 15 years ago since Nobuhiro Watsuki created what is possibly the greatest Tokugawa-Meiji Era manga story ever told, and despite the many other anime I’ve watched since then, “Rurouni Kenshin” never fails to excite the fan in me. I’m sure that I’m not the only one in the Philippines who feels the same way as the anime had a profound effect on my otaku here. Up to this day, it remains one of the most beloved franchises ever to set foot on Philippine shores. So when I learned that MegaHouse planned to commemorate the manga’s 15th year anniversary with a scale figure of Kenshin himself, I knew that I had to get him at all costs. It turns out MegaHouse released two versions; one of Kenshin in his red kimono and the other in his signature blue colors from his Battousai days, which is the limited version. The one featured here is the Battousai version, although I also have plans of getting the regular version because it doesn’t feel right that I only got this one. Anyways, the figure itself is quite small and some have complained of irregular paint jobs (thankfully mine didn’t), but that’s beside the point. If you’re a Kenshin fan and grew up following his joys, sorrows and the Hiten-Mitsurugi ass-kicking he laid out, you have no reason not to get either of the MegaHouse scale figures.
