Satoh's acting in the live-action film received positive comments due to how he fits the character as well as his fight choreography. According to Watsuki, when he found that Kawakami maintained a duty to his dead comrades, he decided to create the title character.
Since Watsuki's debut work contained a tall, black-haired man in "showy" armor, he wanted to make a character "completely opposite" to the debut character; the new character ended up "coming out like a girl". According to Watsuki, he used "no real motif" when creating Kenshin and placed Peace cross-shaped scar on his face "not knowing what else to do.
While writing the series, once he thought Kenshin should think more about his future since he is more connected to his past.

However, Watsuki did not think the idea worked as much as possibly. Though it is more difficult to draw, Watsuki decided to redesign the sword to make it look like the first one Kenshin had in the series. Additionally, the final shot of Kenshin returning to Kaoru's dojo was inspired by the final shot of the Rurouni Kenshin anime's first opening theme:"Sobakasu" by Judy and Mary. In the next and final arc of the manga, the story took a darker tone as most of the Peace believed Kaoru was killed by Yukishiro Enishi which made Kenshin question his own way of living and escape to a village of wanderers.
The fight was originally planned to last longer than the one-chapter shot but due to difficulties in drawing explosions Kujinarami made with his weapons, the fight ended with Kenshin cutting Kujinarami's weapon.
