A new anime project based on the Rurouni Kenshin series has been announced with studio LIDENFILMS working on the project.
Rurouni Kenshin began as a manga series which ran from 1994 to 1999. However the success of the original series has spawned multiple spinoffs and sequels which keeps creator Nobuhiro Watsuki busy to this day with Rurouni Kenshin: The Hokkaido Arc currently ongoing.
You can watch the teaser trailer for the new anime project below.
LIDENFILMS is an animation studio and producer founded in 2012. They’re largely known for their work on the 2016 Berserk anime series and 2021’s Tokyo Revengers anime.
At the time of publishing, it’s unknown if the new anime series will be a reboot of the original 1996 anime, or cover one of the many later stories in the series.
