NEWS: A new Rurouni Kenshin anime!? Yes Please!!!

When I heard the news the other day of a new Rurouni Kenshin anime being given the green light my head almost exploded from happiness! The manga written by Nobuhiro Watsuki is one of my favorite stories of all time!

Now with the news of a new anime I started thinking about the great Samurai X OVA’s that told the story of Himura Kenshin the protagonist of the Rurouni Kenshin story. Trust/Betrayal is beautifully heart breaking along with Reflections which brought me to tears but then, I remembered the TV series and the filler that plagued it.

Some fear ran into me and I thought to myself if they can’t make a decent adaptation from the manga this time around some people need to be shot in the face. I’m always hopeful, a glass kind of half full guy when it comes to people doing remakes especially if the original was lacking which in my mind the TV series was lacking, when compared to the OVA’s the TV series is SERISOULY LACKING! Oh god I just remembered the terrible dub that the TV series had! AHH I spent years trying to forget it! (Okay back to the news) With the manga being completed and no need to try and buy time for the Mangaka maybe we can see a Rurouni Kenshin the way it should have been done the first time around, you know without filler.

So it looks like we will have to wait and see if the studio (yet to be named) and writers (also yet to be named) take this chance and bring us something amazing. I am very hopeful that this will new anime will give us a brilliant telling of the Rurouni Kenshin that we the anime fans deserve. As more news comes out about the new Rurouni Kenshin anime project I will be talking about it, so stay tuned!
