I was ecstatic to learn that Crunchyroll is now streaming Rurouni Kenshin! One can’t watch it until January 1st if one’s not a premium member, but that’s not a problem in my case. For a moment, I feared that they would be streaming the European version of the English dub, which is horrible unless one wants a good laugh. But, I heard the talents of Dorothy Menendez and Richard Hayworth, and my heart was set at ease. Having heard the dub before the sub, I have developed an aversion to hearing Kenshin voiced by a women. However, this did not bother me in Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal, where I prefer the sub–probably because Kenshin is younger during those events.
Anyway, here’s the thread about it: Rurouni Kenshin Holiday Special. Cheers to Crunchyroll for the nice Christmas gift!
