Rurouni Kenshin: Yukishiro Tomoe 02

Tomoe is Kenshin’s first wife who was able to heal Kenshin’s soul and show him a purpose in life as oppose to murder. She was able to forgive him for slaying her fiancé, Kiyosato Akira and found that she had fallen in love with him.

This destroyed her original purpose of wanting revenge against Battousai and created a new desire to live a new life along side him. Unfortunately, these dreams were left unrealized because she had given her life to protect him.

I happen to like Tomoe as Kenshin’s wife more than Kaoru. I don’t know why, but I guess the mere fact that she was able to bring Kenshin back to his old self at the peak of his reign as Battousai did it for me.

I suppose I should find a decent Kaoru cosplayer now before the fan-base kills me.

    That you should.

    Tomoe is lovely and beautiful, but I will always prefer Kaoru- so much fire, and passion she reminds me of Bulma from DBZ who I also love

  2. Haha, believe me, I tried! But I haven't found a Kaoru cosplayer that I like yet... And I'm also looking for a Misao...

    1. I got to say the Tomoe cosplayer on the picture made it perfect. She really looked like Tomoe. Finding a Kaoru cosplayer at a high caliber is indeed very difficult. I believe the best Kaoru who be Emi Takei's portrayal(although is that cosplay?) Got to love them both.

    3. Yeah, I think that would still be considered cosplay. :) I would like to see what Tomoe looks like in the Live Action Movie!
