Rurouni Kenshin All Set To Get Its Very Own Anime Reboot!

Rurouni Kenshin is an Edo period Japanese drama written by Nobuhiro Watsuki. The martial arts/adventure/ romance drama has over 72 million copies in circulation and is one of the best-selling mangas in the industry. The beloved manga received an anime adaptation in 1996 and lasted for over 2 years before finally coming to end. However, the fans of the anime and the manga series were left quite disappointed by the abrupt ending.

However, after almost 23 years of waiting, the LINDEN FILMS have decided to give the infamous series a reboot to make the young audience aware of the anime that once was.


With soo many fans going gaga over the news, hoping to relive their past. One thing is for certain – Rurouni Kenshin can easily become one of the most anticipated animes of 2022. Although a concrete release date hasn’t been announced as of yet, the show is projected to premiere in the winter of 2022, a long wait for sure but absolutely worth it!

The story of the show will highlight the life of a former assassin in the Meiji Era, who after the long war decides to atone for his sins and stumbles upon a dojo, where he meets, Kamiya Kauru. The story of the show will not only highlight the adventures of the assassin but also showcase that the path to atonement can be a long and hard one and doesn’t come easy.

However, what truly makes Rurouni Kenshin one of the best mangas of all time, is not only the story and the plot but also some spectacular fights, which if animated properly will be some of the best the audience will get to see!
