To the fans of Rurouni Kenshin, let’s admit it: at some point in our lives, we’ve probably tried to reenact some of Kenshin’s Hiten Mitsurugi-ryu forms because they looked ridiculously cool (if not his style, probably Saito’s then).

The television (TV) anime was adapted from Nobuhiro Watsuki’s manga and aired 95 episodes from 1996 to 1998 (25 years ago — wow that’s a working adult). This first series was produced by Studio Gallop, Studio Deen, and SPE Visual works with Kazuhiro Furuhashi directing. And, given the title’s success, a ton of media including highly successful live action films were produced after. Now, a recent announcement during Shueisha’s Jump Festa ’22 revealed that a revival anime was in the works by LIDEN films! Since there’s no release date yet, let’s look back at this fun series and reminisce (and maybe do some moves).
