Trivia #1

Today is the opening day of Ruruouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends in the Philippines! 万歳! And to celebrate its first day of screening, today’s trivia is about, well, of course, Himura Kenshin, our beloved rurouni.

DID YOU KNOW THAT…

  • Kenshin’s real name was Shinta, but Hiko Seijuro bestowed him the name Kenshin [‘Ken‘ (sword) and ‘Shin‘ (heart)] which, according to his master, was more befitting for a swordsman.
  • Eiichiro Oda (creator of One Piece) worked as an assistant to Nobuhiro Watsuki when he was 19 years old. Watsuki, best known for his manga Rurouni Kenshin, credits Oda for helping him create the character of Honjō Kamatari, one of the members of Juppongatana. (Source: Wikipedia)
