I'm assuming it'll be a closed casket, considering who it is that kills him....

That's pretty sad. Planning a funeral for a dead cartoon character, it's seems like something that a 3 year old would do.

I am amused, myself. It is not like this is a first. It was done once before, I believe in the late seventies/early eighties for another manga character. Anime smile


To each their own, I say. Smile

Took long enough for that a-hole to kick the bucket. Now Kenshiro is finally the real master of hokuto shin ken. Cool OTOH, isn't having a funeral now essentially spoiling the movie for Japanese fans? Anyway, if anyone can Youtube the ceremony, it'd be much appreciated.

At least two, actually.
Namely, Joe Yabuki and Tohru Rikiishi from Ashita no Joe.

They deserved it too, being at least as manly as Raoh is.
