New Rurouni Kenshin Manga Entitled “~Cinema-ban~” Information Released

The returning of one of the most beloved samurai manga/anime/ova series, Nobuhiro Watsuki’s Rurouni Kenshin, will be an entirely new story about the battles of Himura Kenshin and his adversaries who are featured in the upcoming live-action movie. This information was released in the latest issue of Shueisha’s Jump Square magazine, where the manga will appear.

Rurouni Kenshin ~Cinema-ban~ will begin in the next issue of the magazine (May 2, 2012) while the movie will be available in Japanese theatres starting August 25, 2012. Everything is a part of a huge project for the revival of Battousai and his story. The two parts of Rurouni Kenshin: Shin Kyoto-hen (coming out last December and in Summer 2012) also strike as a good chance to relight the flame of passion when it comes to Himura-san, Kaoru-dono and everyone else from the original manga that was published between 1994 and 1999.

Actually, we got sick long ago, but the little girls and boys didn’t…. They still pay for it, so this will drag on.
