I seriously don't want this to be true. I love Rurouni Kenshin as it was. I'll go with the live action and OVAs, but I don't give a damn for a new RK unless it's a sequel. I just hope it has a good plot.

I am not excited. RK is already a complete story. And if it was to focus around Yahiko or Kenshin's son, it would be boring, since they aren't interesting characters.

I see what you guys mean; it is a complete story. But IF it's set before Kenshin's oath not to kill, in the Bakamatsu, it'd be interesting to see more of his Battousai side. I certainly hope it's not a milked extension to the series and fits in as if it was there originally.

Perhaps it's just a rewrite (I guess?) or something, kinda like how they're redoing the HunterxHunter anime.

Whether or not that's the case, I still have to read the original. ^^V

First I got all excited, "Omg RK is back", but now that people are saying that it's a reboot, I don't know what to think.

I'd rather read about Kenji or Yahiko, with Kenshin only giving advices and things like that, than reading another story about him that creates "holes" in the original story, or just a reboot.

I'll read anyways, but when I first read the news I was expecting for something as epic as the original series. Now I don't know anymore.

Well.. wow.
This is quite unexpected. RK is one of my fav manga ever, so I should be happy.
Still.. just because it's one of my fav manga, I'm kinda worried =/

That took me by surprise. I will have to read as I'm a longterm fan of the manga, but I'm definitely skeptical.

omg, I just got a woody.

I always learn something, and that is: to always be yourself. And to express yourself, to have faith in yourself.

...I don't know. Sounds good, but we need more info concerning production.

BTW, on an aside... WHERE'S JINCHUU?!

Hope Jinchuu does come someday.
As it was said that the new manga is actually a reboot, may it at least open the path to the reboot version of the anime.

I think its quite obvious about what it will be, if it continues manga plotline.

Also THIS SO MUCH.

I have been waiting FOR DECADES for an adaptation of the last arc of manga.

Honestly though, instead of adapting the Jinchuu ark, they decide to have this.


Agreed, someone let me know when they do the Jinchuu ark...

Seriously this series needs a complete remake, not lame OVAs or movies anymore. We need a TV series with a good budget, staff who loves and cares for the series and a proper adaptation from the manga (I'm still so pissed at the Seisouhen OVAs). They seriously have no excuse for not doing this, the manga is finished, the series already has its reputation in and outside Japan and still boasts a healthy following. And there's precedent for this, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood went back to the very beginning and adapted the whole manga faithfully. Of all series from the 90s, Rurouni Kenshin needs this desperately, especially with all the bullshit filler episodes the first -and only- TV adaptation had (in fact it was because of them that the show was cancelled, they were that bad)

Hell, just give the damn work to Studio Bones, they did a pretty good job with FMA Brotherhood.

according to a jap website, it seems like the manga is starting in may on JUMP square instead of weekly shounen jump. and apparently the story and character is not confirmed or at least not released to the public yet so this is quite queer situation. im not sure what to
expect but it seems like its going to be from the same mangaka so shouldn't be too bad. the ova is probably bad because of a different production crew..

not sure if the website was a trusted source though..

The article indicates that the new manga is a movie tie-in rather than a sequel. I'm a bit disappointed, as I had hoped for a Kenji/Shinya story, but I'm still curious to see the new manga when it comes out.

I guess that's better than a sequel. Kenshin ended the way it should have.

When I read the link part "kenshin-to-fight-live-action-film-characters-in-new-manga" I couldn't help but to giggle. The image that came to mind was funny. XD

I wonder when myanimelist is going to have added the new kenshin series...surely someone has tried to add it by now under the name Rurouni Kenshin: Cinema Version?

If you're not even interested then don't just post here.Was that so hard?
Your post has really nothing to do in this thread.
