whatever happens

I got this from Zora. Mine isn't anywhere near as cool as hers, but here we go:

Putting my Kenshin stuff under a cut so I don't bore non-RK folks on my flist.

I got to the Kyoto arc! Wheeee!

Saitoh's legs are still sexy to me.

The big fight between Kenshin and Saitoh at the dojo was just as good as I remember. Maybe even better.

Sano in the woods reminded me of why I tend to think of him as a big dumb lug.

And Hiko... *fangirl squeal and sigh*
My roomie let me down, though. She's never seen the show and came in, curious to see what Hiko looked like:
Kat - Isn't he gorgeous??
Randi (flatly) - No.
