What shrine would be complete without a list of quotes from the Wolf of
Mibu? Yes I -know- it's been done before but do I care? Of course not! A
lot of these you've probably heard before but it's quite fun to hear them
over and over again... Do click on the "play" icon so you can hear Ookami
- sama's voice. His seiyuu was Hirotaka Suzuoki. To be quite blunt I love
the Japanese voice way better than than the English one by Sparky Thorton.
But that's highly subjective and is probably from all the out takes on
Saitou in DVD, aside from which a friend of mine said Sparky uses almost
the same voice for Jin in Samurai Champloo. Okay enough with the ado... In
no particular order I present to you words of wisdom from our resident
Wolf of Mibu, Saitou-sama...
Here are my personal favorites...
Do not get angry... Few have the strength to risk death for
the pride and respect that humans deserve. Because you do not need pride
or respect just to stay alive…
Humans are weak against terrorism and
violence, and under such control their only desire is to survive no matter
what. They lose all pride and respect.

You tame a dog with food, and you can
raise a man with money. But no one can tame a wolf of Mibu.
Only one thing stirs my emotion. Aku.

And a Manslayer is a manslayer... Right Battousai?

With all the OST's and character songs released
for Kenshin, I was quite disappointed to see no vocal character song for
Saitou Hajime. However we do get two "Saitou Hajime" themes but are
instrumental (meaning no voice). Sometimes it makes me wonder if perhaps
Hirotaka Suzuoki (Saitou's Seiyuu as mentioned above) was not quite the
song bird... But do enjoy the songs dedicated to our wolf and the
Shinsengumi by clicking the name of the songs below (opens a pop-up
Yomigaeru Miburo - A Theme of Saitou Hajime
This theme was played in the first few episodes of the
Kyoto Arc. It is purely instrumental unlike the other character songs for
the Rurouni Kenshin cast.
Saitou Hajime - Game Theme
The composer for this game theme was Noriyuki Asuka. The
song is quite repetitive, typical of background music Playstation 1 games.
War of the Last Wolves
This theme was for the "Shinsengumi" as a group in the
OVA "Tsuikohen". It plays in the background as the Shinsengumi conducts
the Ikedaya raid.
The Last Wolf Suite
There is a song entitled the "Last Wolf Suite" which is actually a theme
for Shishio Makoto. I'm quite lost as to why this would be appropriate for
Shishio. It seems more in line with Saitou-san if you ask me... And
definitely Shishio Makoto is not one of our Miburo wolves... Even if he
was named "Makoto" which is the true code of the Shinsengumi... I wonder
sometimes if Watsuki-sensei was having his own little fun... Nah
definitely having fun, using characters and history and intertwining them.
I definitely don't mind. Anyway here is that song...
I was lucky enough to get the memorial
box for Rurouni Kenshin! It was certainly worth the purchase although it's
probably out of production already (yes I got a second hand one. hehehe).
The box includes a very thick book of character sketches, a calendar and a
set of wonderful postcards, all of which we plan to put up in a separate
gallery in the future!
In the meantime, we've encoded the
analog video into a digital format for your viewing pleasure. The video is
small (for bandwidth purposes) but still around 80MB as it's at least an
hour and a half long! This does not have subtitles. If you'd like to send
us a subtitle contact me please ^__^ Enjoy and please don't leech or
hammer our server so we can keep this video up for other folks to see and
appreciate (and reminisce!) RK goodness!
