There’s no debate about the greatest samurai anime of all time, as it is and will always be Rurouni Kenshin. The series has a great setup, character development, and plot points that get you hooked on it in no time.
Although the series ended in 1998, its hype is still alive and that is why its upcoming remake is getting so much attention.
Generally, remakes of popular vintage shows are not well received, but the new Rurouni Kenshin anime looks promising, and here’s a teaser as proof.
The video begins with a tense backdrop and Kenshin Himura standing with a blood-covered sword after slaughtering people. This scene refers to the time when Kenshin was known as the merciless revolutionary killer, Hitokiri Battousai.
Soon the scene shifts to the present day, where a reformed Kenshin on the path of atonement meets Kaoru Kamiya, a dojo owner. Kaoru reveals that someone has been on a killing spree in the name of her dojo and has taken up Battousai’s identity.
