Rurouni Kenshin: Shin Kyoto-Hen is a new Rurouni Kenshin 2-part OVA anime celebrating the series’ 15th Anniversary scheduled for release in December 2012. Shin Kyoto-Hen is basically a remake of the whole Kyoto arc of the original Rurouni Kenshin anime. God, i wished it was the Jinchuu Arc they animated but maybe we should reserve that for Rurouni Kenshin’s 20th anniversary =)

I love the new Rurouni Kenshin character designs, they feel much more modern. In my opinion, the best parts of the original anime was when things got serious. Hopefully, with interest in the anime series being rekindled because of the Rurouni Kenshin live action movie and this new OVA, the Jinchuu arc finally gets animated!
