Ah, yes. I've heard that Hotaru didn't exist in the manga (which would make me rather happy, since I'm not exactly her biggest fan).

Neither am I actually, so clumsy and practically of no use for a shinobi... Yes, I too wince everytime okita coughs... but i suppose we have to face the facts... I was actually thinking of not watching PMK anymore because of that.......

Oh well, I suppose it would have made us all feel better hearing that he lived a ripe long age and stuff... but I read somewhere that during those days the average lifespan of an adult was 35 years... especially men... too much war and disease in those days...
so at 25 years of age, i suppose it was a little young to die but it might not have been considered young in those days.....

(ok.... maybe i'm just trying to console myself being the maniac here but hey... anything that prevents me from crying and weeping when i see him coughing blood later)

I know, I was so happy to know that she doesn't exist in the manga... I mean, DAMN, she was annoying. I think the manga doesn't really have many female characters.
Maro and Fake Okita don't appear neither, from what I know. (Thank God. Maro was a pathetic villian), and Hana-chan is also an anime-only character (... wasn't she annoying too? hehe)

As for the artwork... Nanae Kurono draws some beautiful illustrations, but in the early volumes, you could tell she was just starting. The artwork isn't too pretty, it even looks kinda... caothic, maybe? I can't find the right word right now However, I've seen scans of the later PMK volumes and she has improved A LOT. I must say, she's becoming one of my favorite mangakas now...

What does BL stand for? Anyway, I guess it can two different types of love. Although I haven't seen it yet, it feels more fatherly to me rather than shonen-ai.

BL stands for boys' love.

Anyway, I think your post proves my point. People can choose to see Toshi and Souji's relationship in different ways, and thus everybody ends up being pleased.

i think in my case.. its because I'm a girl... I have no choice but to look at it in that way since i've got this supper crush on him.... This may seem scary but I think if i was a guy, i'd still have a super crush on him.... i think in my past life I must've been gay.... ok... blabbering must stop and get back to work

That's okay. If I was a girl, I'd still be totally in love with BoA.

I'd say whatever Hijikata and Okita has, it goes beyond BL or shonen-ai and straight into "fated soulmates" territory, with a twist of course to make for lots of angst I mean, you meet your other half, look into his eyes and realize the two of you make one perfect demon ;-(

BL (boy love) just means "gay"... as GL (girl love) means "lesbian"...

but I don't really see Hijikata and Okita are BL, they are more like good brothers IMO.

"Head of sentries/spies: Yamazaki Susumu *char. model for Henya (His job was to keep an eye on the members' conduct, sort of like a disciplinary master, besides being a spy to make sure of the coast before an important operation. Kondou and Hijikata relied and had a lot of faith in him)"

This is from a few years back during Kenshin, so they didn't just see PMK and decided to add Susumu.

I'm sorry but I'm bad at abbreviations..... what is BoA? Anyway, Souji and Hijikata I think are a pair that isn't involved with BL. Its more of dying for your best friend kinda thing than that.

I also feel like its a little bit of a love-hate relationship because I think in a way, he feels that he's a lot like Hijikata that's why he respects him and understands him so well... on the other hand, Souji's probably storing some deep anger in him due to the missing childhood after Hijikata made him take up the sword....

But because of that they have as much right to be in this show as anyone else.

And Susumu is a real person as well (not sure if they ever mentioned him having a sister though, so Ayumu might or might not be based on a real person). But he wasn't a ninja, there weren't any ninjas back then.
