Regarding Watsuki Nobuhiro and Rurouni Kenshin

I will continue to enjoy Rurouni Kenshin (and Busou Renkin). That version of Saitou, with his exceptional morality, will continue to be my favorite fictional character, and the romantic pairing of Saitou and Sano will continue to be one of my favorite things. I will continue to create and enjoy fanworks related to Rurouni Kenshin.

But to the pedophile Watsuki, who has contributed to one of the worst evils known to the world, who has put so many of my fandom siblings through hell, I have only this to say: お前 の 全て を 否定して やる.

And to those in the fandom that can’t bring themselves to separate the art from the reprehensible behavior and nature of the artist, and are forced to leave it behind, I understand. I’m sorry something like this has to take something you loved from you. Go well.

  1. I am so happy to see that you will still be in the fandom. It was very devastating for me yesterday when my wife found that information. =X I was contemplating not working on my SaiSa anymore, after I had been so invested on the stories I have been writing this year. It’s good to see the fandom is rallying and not outright condeming the series. Watsuki is horrible, for partaking in a horrible industry, but he betrayed all his fans, all the people that have supported him over the years. I am glad to see there are people that are willing to take the series back and claim them for themselves and not let this horribleness ruin them.

    1. This series and these characters (specifically Saitou and Sano) have become so much a part of me over the last couple of decades that I could no more abandon them than I could an actual living creature in my care. We will fight on!
