Kenshin and Tomoe: The Sound of Snow Falling

"You should have hated me. But you protected me. You allowed me to live."

This was a dream cosplay shoot for me and my friends Kaika (who is cosplaying Tomoe) and Resh (our photographer). We were excited and anxious about doing this shot in particular, because it's our tribute to what we feel is one of the most tragic scenes in anime history, and a memory that has stayed with us over the years.

This is Part 10 of this set. We had so much fun working on this photo series, and what has made it even better is hearing from fellow RK fans whose love for the series remains steadfast even though it's been a long time. <3 We're nearing the end of this photo set now but I hope you'll stay with us!

I can't *imagine* how heartbreaking that's going to be in the next movie.

Fantastic cosplay and photograph. Was a drone used? One of the best RK scenarios ever. The tragedy really comes through.
This is an incredible shot. The colours and the positioning of the principles is just stunning, as though the pages of the manga had simply come to life.
Never really followed this series, but man this is nice

Surely one of the most tragic scenes in anime/manga.  What a good job Watsuki did; he made a manga that incorporated drama and comedy and did a good job with it!
Nice work.

oh my god im crying rn because Kenshin and Tomoe......I love this manga so much I probably read it for about 10 times?? HAHHAHA;;;
AND yes this scene is probably the saddest scene in the whole manga ;=; I love Tomoe!! She was my favourite yet she died such a tragic death ;=;
I'm just wondering why is she holding the dagger though? I'm pretty sure she let go of it when she was killed (which resulted in the second slash on Kenshin's face)

I cried like crazy when I saw Tomoe die. This is a great picture. :heart:

This looks more like a painting than it is a photograph.  O.o  Impressive.  I think this would make a nice poster or a postcard or maybe a that word I can't remember the spelling that starts with an S but in English it's pencil board.
