Hey everyone! I’m back here at TheAnimeScrolls today with the news on Rurouni Kenshin and it’s beginning of Hokkaido Arc. Rurouni Kenshin is one of the most popular manga of all time. The manga went on hiatus some time back. The official website of Shueisha’s Jump SQ. magazine announced that Rurouni Kenshin is going to return. The manga by Nobuhiro Watsuki will return for the Hokkaido arc. The arc is set to resume in the magazine’s issue which will be released on June 4.
As most of you might know that manga had gone on hiatus last December. The mangaka Watsuki was charged with possession of child pornography. Watsuki was later fined. He had to pay 200,000 yen (about US$1,900) in February. People had predicted that Watsuki won’t be making a return but it looks like that Watsuki has realized his folly.
According to the announcement, Watsuki is living a life of atonement. Due to this reason, Shueisha decided it was best if Watsuki continued the manga as the fans were really left wanting after the hiatus.
When the news came out, Shueisha said that they were taking each and every bit of the news seriously. It was also revealed that Watsuki expresses deep regret regarding over the whole situation.
Watsuki and his wife Kaoru Kurosaki launched the Rurouni Kenshin: Hokkaido Arc(Rurouni Kenshin, Meiji Kenkaku Romantan: Hokkaido-hen) manga in Shueisha’s Jump SQ. magazine last September.
The manga has more than 60 million copies in print. It is without a doubt one of the most popular manga out there. The manga follows the story of a man named Kenshin Himura.
Kenshin was once a deadly assassin during the Meiji Restoration. Kenshin has given up his life of violence as his past is too bloody.The manga has also been turned into a TV anime series. The anime also has a film, three original video anime projects, and also three live-action films. It has also been rumoured that a new live-action movie is in works.
