Okita Souji by Luches Okita Souji by Luches
Extract from wikipedia (being lazy)

Okita Sōji (沖田 総司;), (1842 or 1844 - July 19, 1868) was the captain of the first unit of the Shinsengumi, a special police force in Kyoto during the late shogunate period. He was a well-known genius swordsman, being one of the best swordsmen of the Shinsengumi, along with Saito Hajime and Nagakura Shinpachi.

The first historial character I for my 100 swords project.
And this is where i get my online identity "Okita" from.

Tried to go a bit more rough on this one

so odd - I'm waiting for samurai X trust and betrayal to load in youtube while I look at your gallery. Great picture - it's good to recognise the uniform!

mb u should add to a that wiki info, that Soji died being 25 years old, from tuberculosis, in a hospital...during war that was quiet ironical and tragic :\

Finally someone who draws Okita as a man and not a girly-man....everyone knows him because of PeaceMaker but the whole yaoi thing just annoyed me in that...(I'm a Japanese history "snob" according to some)

Well done, well done! I look forward to the rest of your series!

Moru-sama Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2007
O-o what? you mean the parts where it seems to indicate that they like each other, cause nothing ever happens.

there is an anime called peacemaker? interesting, would you mind telling me what its about? u can tell by my name why i might be interested lol

Peacemaker kurogane is another story involving the shinsengumi like rurouni kenshin, if you've heard of that. It's about two brothers, tetsunosuke and tatsunosuke ichimura whose parents were both killed by the choshu and testu joins the shinsengumi to try and train so he can get revenge on them for his dad. Tatsu already works there as a bookkeeper. I read the manga first and then learned that it was discontinued but then they started making the manga version of the anime. The older version is what happens after the anime. I have the whole boxset of it.
