    Japanese anime company Aniplex has released the first teaser trailer for the new “Rurouni Kenshin” anime TV series.

    The announcement: The new series, developed by Liden Films (“Tokyo Revengers”), was confirmed at Shueisha’s Jump Fiesta 2022 in Makuhari Messe, one of the largest convention centers in Japan, on Sunday, according to Anime News Network.

    • The new anime series is based on the 1994 manga created by Nobuhiro Watsuki. “Rurouni Kenshin” was developed into an anime TV series that ran from Jan. 10, 1996, to Sept. 8, 1998, for 94 episodes, as noted on My Anime List. The franchise also has an animated film, three OVAs (original video animations) and five live-action adaptations.
    • Rurouni Kenshin” follows the story of Himura Kenshin, a fearsome assassin who has abandoned his dark past to follow a path of peace. Even though he chooses not to fight anymore, Himura still protects those he cares about using his Sakabatō (reverse-blade sword) to defeat his enemies without killing them.
    • There is no official word yet on the release date of the new “Rurouni Kenshin” anime TV series.
    • Ahead of Jump Fiesta 2022, Viz Media released a new teaser trailer for the final arc of “Bleach” called “Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War,” where the Shinigami have to face their oldest foes, the Quincy.

    Controversial past: Watsuki, 47, was arrested for violating Japan’s child prostitution law after it was discovered that he possessed local child pornography inside his home and his Tokyo office in 2017.

    • Nobuhiro managed to evade a prison sentence of up to one year and was only slapped with a fine of 200,000 yen (approximately $1,800).
