Can someone please answer me these questions??

1) Does Saito ever come back after the Kyoto Arc?? or do you just never see him again??

2) Does Karou die in the new OVA's??

3) Does Kenshin die in the new OVA's??

4) Is their any kind of ending to the Kenshin TV series??

5) In the Samurai X Movie.. not OVA.. is it true that ADV translated Yahiko- Yoshi. and Karou-Cori.

Thanks for any help on shedding light on these questions for me.

SPOILER ANSWERS:

1. Saitou is part (rather a big part!) of the Jinchuu arc. Chou is still his right-hand man. It's after that when he just disappears.
As to the Seisou Hen, he never shows up, except in a 5-second clip of his arrival at the Kamiya Dojo.

2. Yes.

3. Yes.

4. TV series? "And they all lived happily ever after", that kind of a vague ending.
Seisou Hen? Too sad, but too nice to spoil for you.

5. There might be truth to that rumor. The TV series dubbed Samurai X does call Yahiko as Yoshi and Kaoru as Corrie.

In the TV series Saito is gone after the Kyoto Arc. However Saito has a large role in the last arc of the manga (Jinchuu). So if you are looking for him in the final filler episodes of the third season of RK, don't cry like I did when he never shows up.
- I believe this has to do with the fact that Sano still thinks he is dead, and the TV fillers had to exclude Saito since he makes a kick ass enterance in the third season of manga.

Ummm yea Ken and Kaoru are toast from what I gather

Yea the third season kinda ends on a sweet and peaceful note.

The Saurai X movie does not translate Yahiko as Yoshi, well not the English dubbed one I have, and no Kaoru's name isn;t messed up either. The voices are different from that of the TV series (I prefer the TV series dubs better) but they are not inaccurate to that level. Worry not and buy away.

No and Nope

Sorry but Souijiro is done after the Kyoto Arc and the only way to get the Kenshin Manga in English is online translations. Which we aren't allowed to link to

sorry

You can pray that it gets shown onCN. I'm sure the manga will follow if the anime gains popularity.

I do not want to see Kenshin on Cartoon Network if thats what you are referring to. I believe it would be butchered and it would never come across like it was meant to. I mean look what they did to DBZ. Its bad enough what is lost in translation form the original to English, but its even worse between the English translation to the TV friendly CN version.

kaoru

Kenshin does die, but Kaoru did not die. she was very sick, but at the very end, she says she will have to live the rest of her life, like kenshin did, with burden and pain.

SPOILERS


Kaoru does die, it just isn't on screen but rather highly implied...she has the same condition that Kenshin does, only less advanced. She'll die some time later unless you make up some kind of cure....unfortunately.

The disease is unknown, although some people have stated that it's probably based on a real life sickness/plague that existed in Japan around that time, but I can't recall any specifics...


SPOILERS END


And yes, CN will definitely horribly censor Rurouni Kenshin if they get their hands on it...I heard something of the sort was done by CN Latin America not too long ago, to the Spanish dub...

No clues about Aoshi or Misao, assume they are still alive and going...
