    Default Kenshin 4 Luffy

    OK so I'm not really sure if this is the right place, but I didn't want to put it in the One Piece section cos it would exclude alot of people (I for one never go there - partly cos I'm only halfway through the series and don't want any spoilers.... So don't give me any), and it's manga-specific enough to stay out of Chit Chat, so...

    I was reading Rurouni Kenshin and came across this frame with a suspicious-looking bomb:



    I'm sure you're all at least familiar with the logo for One Piece:



    So... I did a little bit of research and it seems that the RK chapter would have come out around the same time as One Piece started appearing.

    Could the RK author have been that influenced by the earlier chapters of OP? Or could the OP author have seen this image and used it? Either way, one's clearly a direct copy of the other. My money would be on RK taking it from OP, esp due to the onlooker's comment.

    Any ideas? Opinions? And anybody know something about a connection here which I don't?

    oda was nobuhiro watsuki's assistant, so oda probably drew the bomb and added the one piece logo to it as a way to promote his own work which he was starting as you said at the time that chapter of RK came out

    Actually, Watsuki drew the OP logo there to wish Oda good luck on his new series; and it apparently worked because OP is more popular than Rurouni Kenshin ever was.

    Volume 19, chapter 161. Check the filename, silly.

    Uryuu freaky, pale and geeky,
    how do your powers grow?
    "With gloves and scars and silver stars
    and swords that I shoot from a bow,
    yes, swords that I shoot from a bow."

    That's only because OP is newer, and is licensed in America.

    RK>>>>>>>>>>>OP.
