I don't like when people view Tomoe and Kaoru as rivals. They were totally different people in completely different parts of Kenshin's life. A man can love more than one woman in his life without betraying the memory of one over the other. Kenshin loved them both for differing reasons, and that is what I love about the story: Kaoru helps Kenshin find true peace by disregarding his past and accepting him, teaching him to finally see his own worth as a human being again for the first time in a decade. Tomoe taught Kenshin of a life besides that of a murderer and that one cannot keep on fighting forever. He met the sad Tomoe in bloody chaos of the revolution, and Kaoru in the peaceful times of the Meiji, each woman's demeanor reflecting the era when they met and fell in love with Kenshin.

Too pathetic to be reconsidered. Only fanfictions make her awesome.

Tomoe is awesome in her own way, Kaoru was captured a billion times, and tomoe was caught once, at least Tomoe tried to fight back against her assailants. How do you really know Tomoe's character? Her life was tragically taken from her at an early age, she could have turned out into an awesome character. Only fanfictions make Kaoru epic and less of a damsel in distress.

(Has seen the anime, read the manga too) Hypocritical people like you make me sick!

Nope, been busy with college. I'm pretty sure you're too stupid fur one. How you manage to get dress everyday is a magical wonder to me! And maybe your friends and family too. Please do the same, before you hurt yourself as trying to think. I know it's a challenge for you, but you need to try!

Oh? Please don't make me laugh. Had Tomoe lived she would be waaayyyyy worse off than Kaoru. If you still don't get it, Kaoru is far more athletic than her and can actually fight back. Too bad Watsuki downplayed her strength. I have seen the manga and never did I saw Kaoru kidnapped too many times. That's anime fillers for you. The only times she WAS kidnapped was by Jin-ei and Enishi and even then she tried to fight back and even won against Jin-ei's paralysis. Tomoe would never be able to do it had she been in her place and she wasn't a docile captive in Enishi's and tried to think how to escape nor did Tomoe possess an intelligence equal to Kenshin's. She actually defeated Kamatari using a broken bokken. A juppongatana member losing to her by a bokken and a broken one shows how strong Kaoru really is. I read the manga right to the very end so I can honestly say that what I say is very accurate. Only dumb Tomoe fans like you just like to ignore Kaoru combat prowess. 

Dumb, annoying, irrational and hypocritical fans like you disgusts me, really.

And you know this how? What makes you so sure? Kenshin changed and so could have tomoe. If she lived. Do you know Tomoe's character personally? Enough to call the shots on how bland she supposedly still would have ended up being? Last time I checked I'm sure your not the creator of ruroni kenshin therefore have to rely on personal speculation on how tomoe would have become.
It's like you're saying kenshin would have been incapable or anyone else incapable of learning the sword. If kenshin a and Tomoe's roles were reversed. So no one else can learn the sword huh? That's logical thinking coming from you. She could have become badass and would want to protect kenshin more. For all we know. My opinion versus yours makes no difference of what could have been. Your opinion knows it all huh? Yeah right, it's not that great like mine.

Yeah kaoru is pretty awesome and yet still resorts to being the damsel for kenshin to save, ( even in the manga) yeah she can fight but I hate it when great strong female characters become weak and a damsel just for the hero to save. Kaoru is not that strong anyway, I doubt she'd win against a real murderous kunoichi who's killed more than kaoru's years of sword training.
Do not jiz your pants over a character who is semi strong compared to the real samurai world. Like I said kaoru is zero compared to the kunoichi.
She's great but not very.

Again opinion speculation.
Kaoru barely escaped enishi.
Yup combat prowess like wood trying to fight a ninja.
Stupid, irrational, ludicrous, hypocritical, narcissus like fans who don't love the story for what it is and focus on one character than loving all others is a sub to you pussy slurping fanatics. I'm not too much into kenshin like I used to be, but to worship the ground a fictional character walks on and berate another for existing is sick and wrong. Get a life and try to be a little open minded because people have differing opinions believe it or not. Your opinion isn't fact and neither is mine for that matter. Still we have differing ships. Do me a favor get your brain out of your ass!

I like how you did this. Kinda shows how Tomoe was his past with darkness, mistrust, tragedy and bad memories, while Kaoru is his future with happiness and truth and love with Kenshin in the middle connecting the two women.
