I was wondering if anyone had a copy of 'Traditions' by Sumiregusa ? Actually anything by her as she pulled her whole account from ff.n.

Much appreciation!

Disclaimer: No Kenshin under the Christmas tree this year either… :(
Notes: I’m sorry this is so late! My new job just ate most of my free time during the week, and moving to a new apartment swallowed the leftovers – you just need so many things to furnish a place! But, I’ve slowly reached cruising speed. So back to writing it is!
Also, transition chapters, yo~

Lastly, a very happy new year to all of you! :D

Looking for a fic [15 Oct 2013|07:01pm]

kingleby
Hi, I'm looking for a fic I read years ago and wonder if anyone recognises it.

It's set after the manga when Kenshin and kaoru first get married. Megumi show kaoru some 'educational drawings/paintings' on married life which are exagerated and freak her out so she won't let Kenshin near her. When he finally figures out the reason he goes to Megumi to confront her and gets the male version of the lesson, and then finally explains to kaoru they aren't life-like.
I remember the last but was karou convinced they were only allowed to have sex three times a week, and kenshin was like 'time to prove her wrong', lol
I think it was only a few chapters long, but it was complete.

Any help would be great, thanks!

Title: Truce

More notes: I’m starting a new job next week and will also be moving to a new apartment soon. I’ll try to post the next chapter in 3-4 weeks as usual, but it may be delayed a bit. Fair warning. I am NOT abandoning Truce though!

Would you like to come with me to the festival tonight?

Sato, Fujiwara, and Otomo comment on the new movies [18 Jul 2013|01:46pm]

syolen
These have been floating around for a couple of weeks, but... copy-pasting from the source:

Intro to the article under the cutCollapse )
Comment from Takeru Satoh (Himura Kenshin):
I feel very fortunate to be able to play Kenshin again, but I am also feeling the pressure of having to cross over an even higher hurdle. This time, the movie will portray the “Kyoto Arc,” which is one of the most popular arcs and considered the climax of the manga. I am glad we will be able to capture the great story on screen, but at the same time, this will also be a very difficult project. However, I don't think of it as 'surpassing the previous film,' but rather, I would like to make a movie that fans will approve of. As such, I will place my trust in the director and play Kenshin based on the soul of the original manga, and challenge the new scale and action in the sequel. I started practicing for combat scenes and horse-riding since a few months ago. All the cast and staff are shooting this movie from the bottom of their hearts so I hope our fans will support us as well!

Comment from Takuya Fujiwara (Shishio Makoto):
Rurouni Kenshin is a childhood anime for me, so to be able to play Shishio this time is like a dream come true. Shishio is one of the most popular characters, so I will do my best to take everyone's suggestions and portray him the best I can. This is my second role as the bad guy since Shield of Straw and I am looking forward to it!

Comment from director Tetsuya Otomo:
The first movie was a combination of the hard work of a top cast and staff, and we were able to convey the passion of many of them through the movie. This time, as the theme is the Great Kyoto Fire, we hope to portray Shishio with even more fiery passion than before. All of the cast will return with more spirit and power than before, with more drama, more action, and a cast and setting that follows the original works. The sequel will be a step up from the original and we hope fans will respond well to it as well.
Kenshin's battleground and enemies have also changed. On top of Shishio, he will also have to fight characters such as Aoshi and Soujiro. However, the stronger his opponents, the more appealing he will become as a hero. This time, we will be doing our best to show the best sides of the antagonists too, so fans can look forward to a great casting as well!
On top of that, I also hope to draw out the human in Kenshin. As a wanderer who seeks to protect those around him while welcoming the crisis in the changing era, Kenshin has to not only fight for those around him, but for himself as well. From his vow to stop killing to his new great enemies such as Katto, the movie will bring forward ideas beyond just a historical drama. Fans can look out for exciting, new drama scenes too.
Furthermore, I hope to also capture the conflict of interests that is prevalent in our world today as well as in Kenshin's world. I think many viewers will be able to resonate with the tension in it, and be able to feel for the new, even more charming Takeru Satoh/Himura Kenshin. As the last of the series, I want to end it with a work that no one else can ever re-create, a work that will become the "last of the legends!”

------

They got the director's name wrong, but he confirms Aoshi and Soujiro!

The only thing that slightly worries/saddens me is the last bit: "As the last of the series, I want to end it with a work that no one else can ever re-create". Does that mean there's no hope for a Jinchuu adaptation? D:

Updates on the sequels, yes? YES! [04 Jul 2013|11:30am]

syolen
There should be Aoshi and Sojiro (taken from the HeckYeahRuroKen page, Translator Sensei translates the official movie website)!

"Official site of Rurouni Kenshin movie states that who will be cast as Shinomori Aoshi and Seta Sojiro in the sequels is one of the most intriguing aspects of the production which means that THERE WILL BE AOSHI and SOJIRO in the next movies! Celebrate, people! RKnews can’t get better than that!

The site also states that Aoshi is pursuing Kenshin to avenge his fallen comrades while Sojiro is, as expected, Shishio’s associate famous for his speed in a fight. It also noted that the movies will be based on Kyoto arc so we are not to expect too literal adaptations probably."


The official website apparently also states that the original cast of the Kenshingumi will be returning.


And from AnimeNewsNetwork:

"The official website for Shueisha's Jump SQ. magazine revealed on Tuesday that actor Tatsuya Fujiwara will play the former government assassin Shishio Makoto in the two upcoming live-action Rurouni Kenshin sequel films. The website also revealed that Keishi Ōtomo (Ryōmaden) is returning to direct the two new films, which will be titled Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Taika-hen (Rurouni Kenshin: The Great Kyoto Fire Arc) and Rurouni Kenshin: Densetsu no Saigo-hen (Rurouni Kenshin: The End of a Legend Arc). The films are slated to open in summer 2014.

Fujiwara previously starred as Light Yagami in the two live-action Death Note films, as the titular protagonist in the Kaiji: The Ultimate Gambler and Kaiji 2 - Jinsei Dakkai Game live-action films, and as Shuya Nanahara in the two live-action Battle Royale films."

Sequels announced!!!! [29 Jun 2013|11:33am]

syolen
That's right, we won't be getting one, but TWO movies in summer 2014! :D

Copy-pasting from AnimeNewsNetwork:

"The August issue of Shueisha's Jump Square magazine is announcing on Thursday that two new live-action Rurouni Kenshin films have been green-lit for next summer. The films will cover the Kyoto arc of Nobuhiro Watsuki's original manga — specifically, the Great Kyoto Fire and Legend's End storylines. Takeru Satoh (Kamen Rider Den-O, Rookies, Beck) is reprising his starring role as Kenshin Himura."

The article on ANN includes a picture from the magazine:

Note: My sister told me that, in Chinese, the characters used to write “Himura” mean “The hand that kills”. The hand. That. Kills. Clever. Sick, but clever.

Fic Rec Lists? [18 Jun 2013|07:38pm]

thelouringlady
[ mood | pensive ]

I just started watching the anime series all over again on YouTube.

I haven't read RK fic in so many years and I'm trying to get back to it. DO any of y'all have rec lists you can give me, whether personal or someone else's?

I ship mainly canon---KenshinxKaoru, MegumixSano, et al---but I'm pretty open-minded. And I can take any rating. From G-rated to, uh, *awkward cough* M. And AUs are fine. I only ask that the characters, especially Kenshin, be in-character. Oh, and no character-bashing, I especially can't abide female character-bashing as a feminist. Not a fan of the Tomoe vs. Kaoru war. At. All.

Thank you!
