Add a bonus that describes the characters' designs and motifs in detail on the surplus pages of the book.While being a little bitter from the people involved[14]"It's a combination of reader service and a deeper understanding of the work," he said.[15].

He has the theory that "the basics of entertainment are smiles and happy endings." Regarding the development of the latter half of "Rurouni Kenshin", I was worried about whether to kill Kaoru Kamiya, the heroine, but he said that he decided to keep her alive because "If Kaoru dies, there will be no heartfelt smile or happy ending."[16].

All works are stamped with their name on them.This mark was made by my wife, who was a friend at the time, as a celebration when I was traveling to China when the serialization of "Rurouni Kenshin" began.Watsuki says, "There is only one in the world, and it is an important thing that is indispensable to my life as a cartoonist.

I like action games andVirtual-onAnd 'Rising ZanI was addicted to it.Regarding Virtual-On, I borrowed the name of the BGM used in the game and used it as a subtitle in "Rurouni Kenshin" (IN THE BLUE SKY) and "Buso Renkin" (FADE TO BLACK).However, the game operation itself does not seem to be very strong, such as struggling against the CPU.Even games that have become too strong for heavy users have complained from the standpoint of game beginners.He says he doesn't play games as much as he used to, in the full appendix of Rurouni Kenshin.
