Shueisha have decided that an artist's work takes precedence over the artist himself, in despite of calls for action from vigilante activists. Move on.

As long as the story is good.

This is the same policy I hold toward Roman Polanski and Bertrand Cantat.

No.

RK was always one of my favorites and it's tainted now. Do you, but fuck no I'm not supporting a pedo.

Shit like this is exactly why people hate anime fans.

I'm not going to support a pedo either, but movie fans aren't any better. Or politician "fans". Or, I'll bet, sports fans.

Somehow this gives people the wrong message that companies will support their big money makers no matter the heinous crimes they commited.

Oh, well. Everyone's surely entitled to their own opinions (as these past few pages of discussion can attest), but I can't go back to enjoying the art of an artist that so deeply disappointed me. But that's just how I feel. I'm sure one person isn't gonna make a dent in his following, so... I'll just make myself scarce.

Rurouni Kenshin was one of my favorite series growing up, tho. What a pity.

My only concern about Rurouni Kenshin was that it's been going for far too long.

It ended a long time ago. Watsuki then have made works like Busou Renkin and Embalming - Frankenstein. Unfortunately, he never quite reached the success he had with Kenshin. So he eventually get back to Kenshin. Think about mangaka like Tsukasa Hojo, his manga after Cat's Eye and City Hunter are alright but never at the level of fame of those two. Not everyone is Yoshihiro Togashi who scored big with Yuyu Hakusho and Hunter x Hunter.

actually i found it mostly because of fame and over glorification of past works, I have quite the experiences with it, i get into manga fairly late when i got to late middle school-high school, of course, not counting doraemon in my childhood or some old anime where i get 1 and miss one episode on broadcast, which i actually reading Busou renkin and a few chapters of Embalming first before Kenshin, and i personally found Busou renkin better in many aspect, Embalming clearly hold the upper side when it's come to world building and lore, but among 3 pair of MCs, only 2 is interesting,. The same when it come to Dragon ball, by the time i actually read dragon balls, which i should already gone through a few manga before, i don't actually found it's that impressive, it is a good books, but i don't found it divine like what my friend told me.

In the end, you can never become incognizant to the malpractice of any business once the genie is out of the bottle, ubiquitous though they might be. Though whether it's Nobuhiro Watsuki or Doug Walker it's always a shame when the doubt seeps in as people fall from grace

Also, ostensible cultural relativism ITT FTW
