New Rurouni Kenshin Anime Green-Lit

BDs of 3 previous samurai OVA/film projects to also ship this year.

The June issue of Shueisha's Jump Square magazine is announcing on Thursday that production on a new Rurouni Kenshin anime project has been green-lit. More information will be provided in future issues of Jump Square.

The magazine also noted that the Blu-ray Disc versions of the two Rurouni Kenshin original video anime (OVA) projects and the Rurouni Kenshin: Ishin Shishi no Chinkonka [Requiem] film will ship between August 24 and October 26. A compilation CD will ship on July 27. Rurouni Kenshin, Meiji Kenkaku Romantan Saisen, a new game for the Sony PSP system, already shipped last month.

Nobuhiro Watsuki's original 1994-1999 samurai manga in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump inspired a television anime series that is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. Viz Media published the manga in North America, and Media Blasters' AnimeWorks label released the television anime. ADV Films released the two OVA projects and the film under the licenser's prescribed title Samurai X.

Since he ended the Rurouni Kenshin manga, Watsuki drew Gun Blaze West and Buso Renkin. His current title, Embalming - The Another Tale of Frankenstein, has been running in Jump Square since the magazine's inaugural issue in 2007.

Number one option smells like Shizaya. *sigh*

I am happy with the Rurounin Kenshin news! I hope they animate the Jinchuu arc! :D

So it's a revamp of the old anime? Or a continuation?

I think it will be based more on the manga this time around since the anime left out the last arc of the manga.

Going with the recent trend such as Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and Inuyasha final act I think its pretty posible this will do the same and be based more off the manga.

Maybe they'll give it the Full Metal Alchemist treatment and make a true-to-the-manga anime. I've been reading people beg to have Jinchuu animated for 10 years(literally)
