    The story of Rurouni Kenshin takes place during the early Meiji era in Japan. It tells the story of a peaceful wanderer named Himura Kenshin, formerly known as the assassin "Hitokiri Battōsai". After participating during the Bakumatsu war, Kenshin wanders the countryside of Japan offering protection and aid to those in need as atonement for the murders he once committed as an assassin.



    here is a wiki link for more info

    Apart from swords I don't see it. While we are here Drift needs a scar, I can see the nuclear nerdrage escalating now

    Drift is just Drift with me. Glad Drift got a figure, but he'll fade into a TF footnote over time. He may be part of CHUG but he'll never really be G1.

    Weeaboo: a term to refer to someone (usually white) who is enamoured with japanese culture. Warning signs include extensive anime and manga collections, rising-sun decoes and a secret stash of eroge.

    Remember back in the day when everyone hated Drift? One of the most common complaints against him was that his backstory was a ripoff of Rurouni Kenshin.

    That would imply that Kraft Macaroni and Kenshin was original, which it is not.

    I never stated that the complaint was actually valid. I just stated that it was a common complaint.

    See, I've never really liked Classics. I prefer Universe, even though it was Uni 2.0 that gave the seriously wicked toys of the whole CHUG thing.

    Really, I still don't know much about Drift but I still fucking love him. He appeals to that 15 year old otaku within me (yes I did just say otaku, it was brief, very brief) and well, a robot that's a sports car and has toys and is white!? (I like white TFs) HELLS YEAH!!!

    I still think it would have been hilarious if the Takara version had Drift written on his doors in English.
