The Legendary Scar
Kenshin’s cross-shaped scar actually consists of two separate scars—a long one running diagonally down his face from just below the outer corner of his left eye to just above his chin and a slightly shorter scar running diagonally across it in the other direction from just to the left of the bridge of his nose to his left jawbone. In a redesign for the kanzenban, Kenshin’s scar has been altered so that the lateral scar is longer, stretching across his nose to just below the inner corner of his right eye.
Yukishiro Tomoe- The first love of Kenshin’s life, Tomoe had an unparalleled effect on young Battōsai’s demeanor, gradually easing him from a cold-blooded hitokiri into a soft-spoken, caring human being. However, their encounter was not fate but rather an orchestration by Himura’s enemies. Despite her orders and her own private grudge against the Hitokiri Battōsai for revenge of her fiance’s death , Tomoe gradually fell in love with the young swordsman and betrayed her comrades in an attempt to protect him from harm. As a result of the enemy’s trap, however, Tomoe’s life was cut short by Kenshin’s own hand and his resultant guilt became a major factor in creating his new, gentler rurouni persona and his vow never to kill.
In Live-action FILM
She appeared during a flashback where she broke down and wept at Akira’s body though her face is never shown. There’s a possibility that she will appear in a future prequel. Kenshin mentioned to Megumi about scar on his face. Her appearance is noted by white plum petals, a nod to her perfume in the original story.
Wondering about the Jinchuu Arc, they did use two characters from the Jinchuu Arc in the first movie…So…Will they be in that movie as well…?
