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?

It will be interesting to see how the new series turns out..

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

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.

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..

MUST READ THIS NEW ONE!!

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.

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


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