The new Rurouni Kenshin anime had its premiere on July 6, airing on Fuji TV’s Noitamina programming block. This anime serves as a re-adaptation of the main manga series.
Notable voice actors include Sōma Saitō as Kenshin Himura, Rie Takahashi as Kaoru Kamiya, Taku Yashiro as Sanosuke Sagara, and Makoto Koichi as Yahiko Myojin. Furthermore, Yūma Uchida voices Shinomori Aoshi, while Saori Ōnishi lends her voice to Takani Megumi. The anime is skillfully directed by Hideyo Yamamoto at LIDEN FILMS, with character design by Terumi Nishii and series scripts overseen by Hideyuki Kurata. The music is composed by Yū Takami.
In 2017, Watsuki and his wife Kaoru Kurosaki, a novelist and story collaborator, launched the Rurouni Kenshin: Hokkaido Arc (Rurouni Kenshin, Meiji Kenkaku Romantan: Hokkaido-hen) manga in Shueisha’s Jump SQ. magazine.
However, the manga experienced a hiatus in December 2017 after Watsuki faced charges for possessing child pornography. Fortunately, the series resumed publication in June 2018.
Watsuki’s original Rurouni Kenshin manga made its debut in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine back in 1994 and has garnered over 72 million copies in circulation worldwide. The story revolves around Kenshin Himura, a former deadly assassin during the Meiji Restoration era, who seeks redemption and a new life beyond violence.
Since its inception, the manga has inspired various adaptations, including a 95-episode TV anime series, an anime film, three original video anime projects, five live-action films, and even a stage musical presented by the all-female musical theater troupe Takarazuka Revue.
