(So before you all start crucifying him on a cross for some of his less than legally and sociably acceptable hobbies, Let's rate the Nobuhiro Watsuki as a mangaka, not as a person)

Today's rate the mangaka segment features Nobuhiro Watsuki, He is the creator of a manga featuring the tale of a former assassin who continues to attempt to walk the path towards redemption by no longer taking another life while protecting the people he cares about against past and new threats who tempt him to break his vow. Said manga is known as Rurouni Kenshin.

Here's a list of previous "rate the mangaka" segments

Well, he's not a good person, but he's a solid 9/10. Rurouni Kenshin was fantastic.

@originalcaptain: Anything before and on the Kyoto arc, Yes.

Anything afterwards, no. That stuff is mostly filler.

Also, the highlight and best animated part of Rurouni Kenshin isn't even a part of the main anime series. It's an OVA series known as "Trust and Betrayal" which was Kenshin's origin story.

8/10 at least. I've been rereading the manga recently (trying to make RK tier thread and respect threads) and I've been posting RK anime scenes on Youtube for the past month so this is fresh in my head. The series is fun and each of the main characters, outside of Karou for the most part, get their time to shine which I appreciate.

It sucks that he had that controversy with the possession of child pornography magazines but there's no disputing that Rurouni Kenshin is a good story regardless on how I view his hobbies. Still waiting on the new chapters of the Ruruoni Kenshin Hokkaido Arc but it seems like it's going to be on hiatus for a while.
