Well where I was going with that is that apparently form the second movie flash backs show that Kenshin already had his cross shaped scar as I recall (correct me if I'm wrong) when he killed Tomoe's fiance and they did not even elaborate on who she was so that will need some a heavy retcon at least to even expand to that point
In the first, movie, they detailed how Kenshin got his first scar, and when speaking with Megumi, he said he got the second scar from that man's fiancee.
Also, they showed Tomoe mourning her fiance's death with Kenshin looking in the background, so they clearly planned to touch on this in some form.
I think I will. It's only based on his works, he doesn't write it as far as I'm concerned. I can't read the new series cus it only reminds me of what he did, it's not a joy at all.
Anybody knows his charges?
He's probably profiting on the IP, but yeah, most of his money comes from the manga sales. And I pretty much feel the same way as you about the Hokkaido arc. Now that his problem has come out, I can't in good conscience support him either. I'm just glad I got the whole series (prior to Hokkaido) BEFORE this news broke.
I may look at scanalations of his newest work, but that's it.
I don't know his exact charges, but he was caught with a chunk of kiddie porn that I'm surprised wasn't found out sooner. And since the conviction rate in Japan is roughly 99%, he pretty much had no hope of getting off. He could have been sentenced to either a year in prison, or paying 200k USD, which he did the later
