its been a long time coming but we finally get it a new Kenshin OVA
So yea I think I have posted be for that Rurouni Kenshin was getting remade into a OVA well I know have sum more info.
The production company Aniplex confirmed on Saturday that the previously announced new Rurouni Kenshin anime series will be a two-part Shin Kyoto-Hen (New Kyoto Arc) original video anime series. The first part will play in Japanese theaters in December.
The new anime series will remake the Kyoto story arc of Nobuhiro Watsuki's original manga and the previous anime adaptation. In particular, it will depict the battle of Kenshin Himura and Makoto Shishio and will be told from the point of view of the Oniwabanshū ninja Misao Makimachi. Director Kazuhiro Furuhashi and Studio DEEN are returning to animate the new series along with musical composer Noriyuki Asakura. Mari Okada (AnoHana, Wandering Son) is writing the scripts this time. Hiromitsu Hagiwara (Saint Beast ~Ikusen no Hiru to Yoru Hen~) is the new character designer, and Hiro Kaburaki (Kimi ni Todoke) will take over as the episode director. The cast will remain the same except for the role of Hajime Saitō, who will be played by Ken Narita(Jeremiah Gottwald code geass).
Now then i was hoping for a full remake that would cover not only this arc but the arcs befor and after this one but oh well best not look a gift horse in the mouth. And who knows maybe if this OVA gos well they will make the jinchu arc of the manga into a ova then we will have the full story more or less.Thare is a preview that is up of aniplex's site if you would like to see it just click the lick
