:cool: I love Kenshin, It's one of my favorite series and I was just wondering if there's a chance that it'll air on TV here...

Also, does anyone know If the manga will be released in the US?

It's a sort of anime that would appeal to americans. THey usually put things on Toonami that don't have much SCARY violence, have a spunky plot, and great characters with special powers. Kenshin fits into that category.. except his powers are merely taught to him bu Seijurou. However.. once they are done with the Tokyo Arc the Kyoto arc is very deep and involved.. not something kids would enjoy. So I doubt they'd ever air it unless it was on Adult Swim. Which I won't watch. Your best bet is to save up and buy DVDs one at a time.

Actually, if I remember...Rurouni Kenshin *might* have been on TV for a bit, but I might be wrong. I say that only b/c i think the website animeontv.com lists Rurouni Kenshin as airing at one time, but never lists which station. Hm... but R.K would have potiental for airing b/c it IS a long series... *AGAIN, huggles Richard Hayworth* :D ...as far as the manga, I -personally- have heard nothing, but I ~do~ wish both the R.K. and Trigun mangas would get published here in America, and translated WITH the curse words and gore!
