    Ahhhh, I forgot about the kanzenban.

    Also, VIZ Media is putting the Cinema Version on their list of titles for Shonen Jump Alpha.

    Re: Rurouni Kenshin by Watsuki Nobuhiro

    Ok, I am confused. are they just republishing the whole thing or is it a new thing? According to the wiki it is a reboot which would imply it won't necessarily be the same as the original series (however as a reboot it should be similar). When is this thing starting? Also, whatever happened to the whole finishing the anime thing, did that ever happen?

    Could someone explain please does the publication of the new manga in Shonen Alpha mean that there will be no english scanlation? Does this magazine get "pirated" btw? *feeling that the end of all hope is near

    Both Cinema Edition and Chapter Zero will be reboots in a sense that they'll start from the beginning of the old manga with Kenshin coming in Tokyo as a rurouni. But. They won't be trying to rewrite exisiting canon. They're made just for fans' fun and to advertise the movie.

    Cinema Version is basically the movie in manga form.

    Good question. I don't think the magazine is pirated at all since the chapters they publish are the chapters published two weeks before the current ones. Now with RK Cinema, this is going to be quite interesting since VIZ acted REALLY fast with acquiring RK Cinema. I take it as an attempt to battle scanlators, but someone will find a way. It's the nature of the Internet.

    Now, that's not correct. If you look at the chapter and movie trailers it's apparent that they're different. "Cinema Version" is advertised as the manga where Kenshin will fight his enemies from the movie. Manga itself won't have the same plot as the movie.

    Here is the first 9 pages of the chapter in Japanese and small summary in English: http://kateviardo.tumblr.com/post/22...rst-chapter-of

    The new Rk is not based on the upcoming live-adaptation movie. It is a remake of RK by the author, himself.

    Well, it is confirmed whether Watuki will do the remake for the whole thing or just the Tokyo arc.

    Re: Rurouni Kenshin by Watsuki Nobuhiro

    I doubt we have something to fear: both remakes will be short, more like variation on theme "man with no name comes to town" than full-blooded remakes. My policy is take it easy and enjoy good story with familiar faces.

    For example, in the beginning of Cinema Edition Saito asks Kenshin if he’s alright fighting in place which is drowning in blood and Kenshin answers that he's fine as long as it's Bakumatsu. Isn't it a cool way to introduce an age and the character? I think it's a way better than "he slashed open a new era of piece but he's a nice guy actually." BTW some japanese blogger jokes that "pools of blood" will be a catchphrase in the new manga cuase it was mentioned 3 times in the first chapter))))

    Wow! Actual translation for the chapter was put on site 3 days ago? I'm going to kill somebody right now for my stupidity... I'm actually kind of angry that noone pointed it out in this thread. Would it kill ya, guys? To tell stupid rookie where to look for damn translation?

    Nevertheless: the chapter on mangatraders http://www.mangatraders.com/manga/series/8780

    Well, to see that translations got posted you need to mark the series as a favorite. The series has been finished for quite a while so it is unlikely anyone marked this manga as a favorite to keep releases in check lol. Thanks for the info.

    Oh, that's what's happened. At least I now know how it works) Thanks.

    I like this new chapter a lot. Latest ruroken OVA which is remake of the Kyoto arc is so spectaculary bad that people were expecting the worse giving that new manga is basically made to promote the movie. And it turned out to be really fun. The translator made sure that phrases that were used in the original were translated according to the old translations. So starting with Jin-e's laugh and ending with Kenshin's explanation it all sounds familiar and gives nostalgic feels. Kenshin might be a little bit crazier this time and plot seems a little bit silly but all in all I'm very pleased with this "remake".

    Yeah, I heard some bad things about the OVA, though I heard there's going to be a 2nd OVA coming out involving Kyoto.
