The End of Kenshin

Title: The End of Kenshin
Plot, or Lack Thereof: Rurouni Kenshin as directed by Hideaki Anno.
Reason for Banishment: Massive clichés and script style.


Saitoh: Idiot. You are just immersing in self-pity.

Sano: Stand up, Kenshin!

Aoshi: I’m still waiting for that cup of tea, Battousai.

Tsubame: Please! We need you!

Yahiko: I want to be strong, just like you!

Hiko: Stupid disciple. Have you forgotten everything I taught you?

Kenshin: (doesn’t answer)

Kenshin: Tomoe.

Kenshin: Kaoru-dono.

Kaoru: Let’s go back to Tokyo together.

Kenshin: (after a long silence) Yes. Maybe—maybe I can forgive myself.

(chains surrounding the sakaba begin to crack)

Kaoru: Let’s go back to Tokyo together.

Kenshin: Maybe I can go on with life.

(some of the chains snap off)

Kaoru: Together.

Kenshin: Maybe I can be strong.

(more chains break)

Kaoru: Together.

Kenshin: Yes! I want to live! I want to be me! I want to remain in this world!

(All of the chains fly off in slow motion as Kenshin leaps to his feet. He is surrounded by the various RK characters, even the bad guys)

Everybody: Congratulations, Kenshin!
