I wonder why they chose to finish the anime with a buncha fillers... And I heard the ending of Inuyasha was supposed to be read in the manga only... even the characters said so!
I sir, have all your answers...
The anime had caught up with the manga after the Kyoto arc and Kenshin vs. Shishio. Thus, as is the fate with so many animes (inuyasha, bleach included), they had to create a season of filler eps so the manga could catch up and new episodes could then be made for new chapters. Luckily for Bleach, it hasn't hurt its ratings. With Inu and Kenshin, in particular, it lost so much ratings-wise in that third season that it was cancelled before the final arc could be animated. Rumors bound, of course, that it's being considered for revival so that final arc could be animated *which I'd love*.
I've seen all of the Kenshin eps and OVA's at this point. I watched the OVA's after I finished the series itself. I actually didn't realize the final arc of the manga *Kaoru kidnapped* even existed, as I thought all of the manga had been animated and the OVA's were an extension. I was exposed to it for the first time in the 5th OVA. I'm happy though the final arc of the manga exists though, cuz I can't imagine those last 2 OVA's being the "real ending" for Kenshin. They were absolutely spell-binding and gorgeous, musically, artistically, animation-wise and EVERYTHING, but just too depressing. After all the mess Kenshin had endured, he deserved a happier ending...
Oh, and BTW, where do you read the Kenshin manga anyway shinigami? Do you have the books yourself, or is there someplace online (hopefully in English) where you can find them?
