 Well, at least we get to see the butchered anime for free...

 My very same sentiments on the opening sequences... IMHO,
what they should do is show the title screen then go directly to the show, and try to put in more of the show itself along with the usual tons of commercials. They're just wasting precious seconds on showing part of the opening/ending. They should use that time instead for the show content itself.

 The butchered Evangelion opening was by far, a lot better than what they did to Samurai X... if Kenshin by any chance happens to see it, he would have probably return to being hitokiri battousai ^^;
