I haven't read the manga in a long while, can someone tell me who the guy in the middle is suppose to be?

@jdillander91, Don't quote me on this but I believe it is the doctor with two granddaughters.
@TankD, is there a website you saw it on, that has no viruses?

If you are a fan of the anime do yourself a favor and WATCH THE MOVIE. It was a fantastic adaption. Did they change of few things... Yes but the spirit of the show was there. If only M Night could have adapted Avatar the Last Airbender the way these people adapted Rurouni Kenshin.

no no no...that's not Dr. Gensai

that has to be Kashiwazaki "Okina" Nenji...the only fight in the anime that Shinomori Aoshi fought and won that was worth a damn.

I love this character, he's so calm and prepared.

Battosai the Manslayer, that he is.

I loved when he would say "That I am.".
