Rurouni Kenshin’s Remake to Ship on BD/DVD in March

In addition to all the news about the remake of one of the most exciting Rurouni Kenshin arcs there are, we got to know that a date for the first BD/DVD sales of the new anime has been set. The Rurouni Kenshin: Shin Kyoto-Hen Zenpen Homura no Ori (Rurouni Kenshin: New Kyoto Arc Part I: Cage of Flames) will be shipped by Aniplex on March 21, 2012 while the second volume is supposed to be ready for a summery release.

There will be two possibilities for the fans to get these videos: the Blu-ray Disk will cost 6,615 Japanese Yen (about 65 euro) and a DVD costing 5,565 Japanese Yen (about 55 euro).

In addition to the video, you would also be buying a box that has been especially illustrated by the anime’s character designer Hiromitsu Hagiwara and a storyboard book with works by both the main director Kazuhiro Furuhashi and episode director Hiro Kaburaki.

The second volume will be out quite quick…


True that. Maybe that’s why some of the details on the character design are a bit nonexistent.
Good work on Kaoru-dono, though. She looks like a 17 year-old Idol. ;)


Will it be subbed?


I’ll order as soon as possible actually… Bit “hungry” for a samurai anime. :)


Same here!
