JUMP SQUARE” announced that the first new release of the anime “Rurouni Kenshin” will happen after nine years, though no details about it have been revealed yet. This release is in celebration of “Rurouni Kenshin's”' 15th anniversary this year since its anime adaptation...
YATTA!!! Over the years, I've come across some pretty good animes (Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, D. Grayman, Full Metal Alchemist and the list goes on and on BUT, 'Kenshin' will forever be my no. 1 anime of all times!!!
It's the character design, the sound tracks, the history behind the anime (a part from learning of Japan from Geography class as a series of volcanic islands located in the Pacific Ring of Fire, I've learnt so much about Japan's history from this anime, and so many places in Japan.... my favourite being Kyoto)... and I must say Kenshin sparked my initial interest in Japan...
And when the series ended, I so wished that they would give us something more and ALAS, the time for that is nearing.... URESHII DESU :))))))))
Oohhhh I feel like rewatching the series again... I've the complete anime collection.... and Bonnie Pink's "It's gonna Rain" (one of the opening theme songs) is just drumming in my head right now.... and Oh I have "Heart of Sword" by T. M. Revolution" Oh really I can't contain my excitement... It's at the same level when I heard there was gonna be a "Pirates of the Caribbean 4"..... I'm dying for May 20 to get here so I can see my sexy Captain Jack Sparrow... totemo ureshii desu!!!
With this GREAT news, I can now go to bed :))) *nemutai*
