Time: 4 pm friday
Where: Outside of the convention center, where there is a grassy area and a big ole tree. Thats our favorite spot ^.^

At the risk of sounding lame, is Aoshi the one Misao likes? I'm being Misao, but I keep forgetting who I'm supposed to like....

05-27-2003, 08:23 PM

Muaha! *flies through the air and bashing Aoshi with a gigantic Raddish when he goes to chase*

06-17-2003, 04:55 PM
I'll be there with Umi as jinchuu arc Shinomori Aoshi. It'll be my first cosplay... so I might be a bit shy.

Aoshi Shinomori
06-18-2003, 03:37 AM
heh well since there wil be a butt bow aoshi.. i ll probably bring the trenchcoat one.. argh.. i m always like this.. deciding which one to wear.. argh.. come back here kenshin.. and with your radish too. cool there isnt much jinchuu aoshi .. in fact ive only seen one other besides myself that has done a jinchuu aoshi. i did my colors based on the anime when he comes back to get misao.. i like the colors on it even though it wasnt a butt bow heh

06-18-2003, 09:12 PM
I did my colors according to the manga since that is the only authentic reference. If you did it according to that one filler anime episode, it's not really jinchuu arc or manga Aoshi. It's more like an obi-less Aoshi that has been neutered for television, heh.

Hmm, you should come out in your trenchcoat-less Aoshi. It would be nice to see another one out there.

I made mine last year for Fanime. I havent read all of jinchuu arc manga but i saw some fight scenes with aoshi vs gein. it looks black and white but im not sure cuz its a manga. heh well i did jinchuu arc style with oniwanbanshu color. I showed it to Watsuki and he said that the costumes look great and thats probably the colors that he would use if it was being animated. i'll probably bring the trenchcoat one cuz i wore that butt bow one last year. but who knows heh i remember wearing the butt bow but only true kenshin fans would recognize it.

06-19-2003, 12:29 PM
I think Hayashi just likes black entirely too much x.X; Chuu... actually in one of the chapters of the manga when Aoshi is fighting with... er... whatever his name is, he says they are both wearing black. So that's what we based the color scheme of of. v^___^v

'kay... Fanime is tomorrow. Guess I'll see you RuroKen cosplayers there. =D

06-19-2003, 01:49 PM
In chapters 216 and 217 of the Rurouni Kenshin manga, the title was "The Two Dressed In Black", in reference to Aoshi and Gein. Even though it was a black and white manga, Gein repeatedly said that they both wore black.

It was cool that you saw Watsuki-sensei. Though if the jinchuu arc was animated, it would probably be contorted and not true to the manga at all (i.e. animated Kenshin after the Kyoto Arc, filled episodes, both Kenshin OAV series).

Yeah, only true Kenshin fans would know long obi Aoshi, and on top of that, they probably wouldn't know that he wore black.

There aren't enough Aoshi lovers out there... how sad...

See you all at Fanime.

06-19-2003, 02:35 PM
yeah i didnt know what colors it was but i just saw the filler eps and just based it off the oniwanbanshu color. and watsuki did say that it would be that color if animated cuz i guess he likes that color and he made the " butt bow" cuz he likes long flowing stuff.. he also said that Aoshi is one of his favorites. yeah i ll probably bring the trenchcoat ones to amuse the cartoon network fans of kenshin.. they would recognize it and probably forget the name of the character heh i hope its not too hot outside.
