Next year will be a glorious year for anime fans. We’re getting new seasons for hit anime like Bleach, My Hero Academia, Overlord, and many more! Not only that, we have new series to look forward to, like Spy x Family, Blue Lock, Chainsaw Man, and too many others to mention.
One announcement during the recent Jump Festa event that took place in Japan from 18th to 19th of December 21 brought joy to 1900s anime fans. It was broadcast that Rurouni Kenshin would get a new TV anime project in 2022 under Liden Films. Despite being a relatively new Japanese anime studio established in 2012, Liden Films has produced hit anime series like Tokyo Revengers, Berserk, and Initial D.
Jump Festa did not reveal much detail on the new anime project. However, the news also revealed a 19-second teaser PV uploaded on Aniplex’s YouTube. The teaser PV only shows Kenshin and information saying that a new anime project is at work. There are no words spoken, just 19-seconds of pure anticipation of what’s to come. Of course, we see a clear view of his X-shaped scar.

The announcement of the return of our favorite deadly assassin turned wandering samurai, Himura Kenshin, is definitely something to look forward to next year. Nobuhiro Watsuki released the first manga of Rurouni Kenshin in 1994. Since then, the series has had an anime, movies, and live-action movies that took the world by storm.
