I admit, there was a time when I was tempted to walk into a kendo dojo and ask if they taught Hiten Mitsurugi-ryu (Flying Heavenly Govern Sword-Style).

Sounds impressive right?

Except that it’s a fictional sword art. That’s right. Fake.

But I loved watching the anime Rurouni Kenshin so much that, much like the universe of Star Trek, it was real enough to me.

Exciting news for all the fans out there like me is that the creator Nobuhiro Watsuki has just rebooted the whole manga, taking the same characters and reintroducing them in a new context.

I just read the free sample first chapter, and I gotta say, it was fun to see the old characters come back alive. Guess I’d better dust off that old wooden bokken sword and get swinging again.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
