So this is what Watsuki is up to. I’m not sure how I feel about this yet, but I don’t think I like it much.
The May issue of Shueisha’s Jump Square magazine revealed on Wednesday that Nobuhiro Watsuki’s new Kenshin manga series, Rurouni Kenshin -Cinema-ban- (Rurouni Kenshin: Cinema Version), will focus on battles fought with characters from the upcoming live-action film. The issue has a feature promoting the “reboot” of the Rurouni Kenshin series, although the magazine is not necessarily using the term “reboot” with the English denotation in mind. The new manga series will begin in the next issue of Jump Square on May 2.
