Rurouni Kenshin is not the first anime I ever watched but kinda comes a close second - I believe it was dubbed when I watched it on tv. You could say it is a bit oldschool, there is great design and painting style in the pages of the manga, great music, direction and fighting sequences in the anime and fully fledged characters that stem from historic legends of Japan. One can only disregard the number of filler episodes, the fact that the third long arc of the manga was never included in the anime version but was made into two OVAs - one of which can be disputed that altered the very core of the main character - because this is a fascinating in all of its simplicity story of a swordsman and his peace. Okay, also because we were anxious to see Kenshin lose it at some point and go all Hitokiri Battosai on someone. It is highly recommended to check out the anime, manga and OVAs, all rights of which (should) belong to Nobuhiro Watsuki. Note for OP lovers, Eiichiro Oda was an assistant to the mangaka during the production of the story and inspired a character in the second arc ~ Spoiler alert ~ rimes with o-kama.

I’ve been planning on doing this giveaway for a while and I finally have the chance to do it!
I’ll be giving away a Nikon D5100 and an iPhone 4S, they’re both in excellent conditions.
There will be two winners.
The 1st place winner gets to choose which prize they want.
The 2nd place winner gets either the camera or the iPhone (whichever the 1st place winner didn’t choose).
I’ll be shipping worldwide!
- Likes and reblogs count but if you do both you’ll have a better chance at winning.
- You don’t have to be following me but if you win and you ARE following me, I’ll buy you an iPhone case or a camera bag of your choosing (or anything else you’d like that is between the price range of those two things).
- Reblog as many times as you want just don’t spam your followers.
- You should already know that giveaway blogs don’t count.
- Have your ask box open so I can contact you in case you win.
I’ll be using a random number generator to choose the winners. They’ll have 24 hours to message me back. You have until July 14th to reblog this. Good luck! <3
If you have someone who you think is the one, don’t just sort of think, your ordinary mind, and think, ‘Oh, OK, let’s make a date, let’s plan this and make a party and get married.’ Take that person and travel around the world. Buy a plane ticket for the two of you to travel all around the world and go to places that are hard to go to and hard to get out of. And if when you come back to JFK, when you land at JFK, and you’re still in love with that person, get married at the airport.
