Nah. ORO. Kenshin uses it a lot in the RuroKen manga. I think its used as an interjection of some kind.
oro doesn't actually have a definition because it's just a sound kenshin makes. like, one of my friends always goes "NGAH!" whenever she gets poked, or trips, or something, and it's just a sound specific to her.

will some translate al's little blurb before each ep like it is? without rearranging the verbs and stuff in to normal order. ive been trying to but its not going well...
not sure what you mean by not rearranging, but here:
the japanese version:
hito wa nanika no gisei nashi ni, nani mo eru koto wa dekinai.
nanika wo eru tame ni wa, doutou no daika ga hitsuyou ni naru.
sore ga renkinjutsu ni okeru "toukakoukan" no gensoku da.
sono koro, bokura wa sore ga sekai no shinjitsu da to shinjiteita.
people cannot gain anything if they don't sacrifice something.
in order to gain something, a sacrifice of equal value becomes necessary.
that is the principle of the Law of Conservation in alchemy.
at that time, we believed that to be the truth of the world.
the wording is a little awkward in the translation, but i tried translate close to the original. some definitions of the words:
line 1: "hito" is people, person; "nanika" is anything; "gisei" is sacrifice; "eru" is gain, "dekinai" is cannot do.
line 2: "tame" is like "for the sake of; "doutou" is equal, "daika" i don't think is in my dictionary but i'll assume it's something like "value," "hitsuyou" is necessity, "naru" is the verb to change, to become.
line 3: "renkinjutsu" is alchemy, "okeru" is in, at, or on, "toukakoukan" is the law of conservation/equivalent exchange, "gensoku" is principle or rule.
line 4: "koro" is time, "bokura" is we [masculine], "sekai" is world, "shinjitsu" is truth, the root of "shinjiteiru," "shinjiru," is to believe in, trust in.
and all that's off of the top of my head because i'm too lazy to double check with the subs or the dictionary, but most of it should be right.
