Rurouni Kenshin, a brand-new anime, debuted its first full teaser during the Aniplex Online Fest 2022.
The anime caught my attention at the tail end of last year, and now we can finally see what it will look like.
The television program will debut in 2023. In the announcement, the first episode of the classic anime was recreated using cutting-edge technology and contemporary animation techniques.
The production is overseen by the work’s author, Nobuhiro Watsuki, who also wrote the story and directed the design.
Liden Films produced the animated film. They were working on various projects, including Tokyo Revengers, Tokyo Tribe, and the minivan-based Prequel Schwarzesmarken (William-Lov).
Hideyo Yamamoto, known for such films as Strike the Blood, Black, Black, and Darker Than Black, is in charge of directing it. Terumi Nishii creates the persona, while Yu Takami creates the score’s visual.
Voice Actors for Rurouni Kenshin:
The voice actors for Kenshin Himura and Kaoru Kamiya is also out.
Soma Saito, better known as Chongyun in the Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki II, and Rion Balthazar will be lending their voices to many other characters.
The former with Genshin Impact, Nina Desforges in the Star Ocean: The Divine Force, and more will be spoken by Rie Takahashi, also known as Ha tao.
Watsuki-sensei claimed in the message read aloud on the program that he had participated in the first recording session. Without any protest, he gave it his blessing. He was indeed the original creator, as it turned out.
