JinchuuX: New Account: Recently, Shibien13 and Redbeast13 took down their videos due to a copyright claim by Sony music. However, the two have opened a new account called JinchuuX and are now re-uploading their old episodes in better quality, with better jokes, and different music. This account will become the new base of their operations. They currently have two episodes remastered and will be continuing to make new episodes.
Season 1[edit | edit source]
In season one they took their time to establish the characters. After a while they redid the first four episodes. To make sure that the characters had time to develope well and could get in enough jokes, the went through most of the filler in season one, skipping the rest to start with season two. The opening song for this season was Heart of Sword, one of the ending themes to the original show. The ending song was originally Caramelldansen but was later changed to Ikie Ikie. The season ended with their longest episode yet with a trailer at the end that portrays the next season.
In the remake, the opening is still Heart of Sword, but made longer with more effects and better visuals. The ending song change to Shijyou Saikyou no Deshi (the main fighting theme in Kenichi the Mightiest Deciple). Kenshin is also made to be more passive, as it would be more useful to future episode it have him closer to his original character. More members from the Order of A.D.D will also be making more frequent appearances in the show.
Season 2[edit | edit source]
This season starts with them cutting the "Abridge Slayer" joke and going back to the "Man Slayer." They introduce Saito and keep the original plot of Kenshin going off to stop Shishio. During their first confrontation, Kenshin mocks Shishio of only being after Japan, stating that the goal is short sighted compared to other anime villians. Shishio retorts by saying "he who controls Japan, controls the anime," causing Saito and Kenshin to both be disturbed by the evilness of his plan. Sanosuke learns the Futae no Kiwami, a technique that borrows the power of the God of Destruction, Chuck Norris. The opening to season two is Over Drive, though it was originally going to be Heros of Our Time but was not allowed due to copyright laws. The ending has stayed as Ikie Ikie. In this season we see more editing to the original data with a sqirrel randomly jumping onto Saito's face and comic books beign read by characters.
