Gintama_Sakata Gintoki

Of the hundreds of members who were part of the Shinsengumi, some stand out more than others - well, the best known members tend to appear in the Shinsengumi anime oriented more frequently than others. The following is a brief description of the causes of this police force famous samurai.

Kondo Isami, the commander - and founder - of the Shinsengumi. Born into a farming family, and studied art of the sword. Kondo was originally part of RĂ…shigumi, and was also one of the members who opposed the change of objective and stayed in Kyoto, which eventually led to the creation of the samurai police as it is known today.

Hijikata Toshizo: the vice-commander of the Shinsengumi. Born into a wealthy farming family, Hijikata also studied fencing. Eventually he met Kondo, earning him a place as a mainstream student Shinsengumi sword fighting style. Hijikata is also said that he was the creator of the Rules of Shinsengumi, a set of strict rules that must be obeyed by all members of the police samurai. Anyone who was against the rules would be forced to commit ritual suicide, ie, seppuku - many members of the Shinsengumi were killed because of this. Hijikata is often characterized as a demon, especially since he is the founder of the authoritarian rules.

Okita Saji, one of the many captains of the Shinsengumi and an excellent warrior. Okita was born as a low-class samurai. He is seen as an extraordinary asset to the Shinsengumi. To emphasize this, during the incident Ikedaya, Okita said that he fought for two hours about everything on his own, claiming the second floor of the inn in his private battle. On the contrary, all that was a good warrior, other members of the Shinsengumi always said there was a murder-machine, and it was a good hearted person. Who unfortunately died of tuberculosis at the end of the Tokugawa era.

Hajime Saito, one of the captains of the Shinsengumi is. At first, he was a spy of the corporation of samurai, after he learned of a plan to assassinate their leader Kondo Isami, but later became a captain of one of the armies of many.

Susumu Yamazaki, one of the many spies Shinsengumi. In fact, he was not a samurai, but ninja. He says it was a valuable asset during the incident Ikedaya.

Three specific anime series: do they represent precisely the Shinsengumi?

As I mentioned before, there are too oriented samurai anime series to go through and thoroughly analyzed. However, they have always had an interest in the Shinsengumi, I have chosen three specific series they are: Rurouni Kenshin (aka Samurai X), Peacemaker Kurogane, and Gintama. With these three, I will try to establish whether the Shinsengumi is accurately reflected in each.

Nobuhiro Watsuki Rurouni Kenshin and the Shinsengumi

If you think "popular anime" old school "samurai", believed to Rurouni Kenshin. The anime adaptation was made in 1996, and was directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi. Originally a manga (Japanese comic) series Rurouni Kenshin tells the story of Himura Kenshin, a wandering samurai during the Meiji era, which used to be a murderer expert working for the government Bakumatsu.

Given the author of the original manga series from Nobuhiro Watsuki, is a fan of the Shinsengumi, and the like, this series manages to integrate some Japanese historical figures. Although not all are present Shinsengumi, Watsuki includes Hajime Saito in history, making it one of his old rival Kenshin since the early days of the Tokugawa. Watsuki of "Hajime", unfortunately it was frowned upon by fans of the Shinsengumi, as he said they do not represent the true Hajime Saito. In this series, and that is after the Tokugawa period, the captain of the Shinsengumi is portrayed as a sadistic person. Watsuki built his own "Hajime", making it completely different from the manner in which Saito Hajime. With this being said, I think it's safe to say that, despite a series Rurouni Kenshin is fantastic and wonderful, that fails to adequately represent the Shinsengumi captain Saito Hajime is.
