An interesting question, don't you think?

I took scruffyronin
from Blade of the Immortal- Chapter 48 when Manji, the immortal lead character has his hand snagged and tied to a tree branch after a botched ambush attempt on three Ittō-ryū kenshi to get their tegata, Higa
(leader of the 3) now sitting on a log on the side of the road utter the words..."Strange... it always kind of nagged at me that some scruffy rõnin could be taking out so many guys from the famous Ittō-ryū, single-handed."
I LOVED how he describeb Manji so much that I used it and I used Manji's Sauvastika kimono back-print as avatar as well!
That was 2004, and also around the time when I had no pc of my own, no 24/7 internet access and no way of knowing that "scruffy ronin" was commonly used to describe many of Toshiro Mifune's classic characters, haha.
What's your story?
