The animated, scarred-face wandering samurai Kenshin Himura has certainly left quite a lasting imprint on the Filipino audiences.

Over a decade since the manga ended, the internationally acclaimed comic-turned-TV series “Rurouni Kenshin,” locally known as “Samurai X,” returns with a brand-new five-story arc this March.

According to Anime News Network, the popular series’ author, Nobuhiro Watsuki, confirmed the new story arc, featuring the legendary Battosai himself.

The Japanese illustrator first launched the iconic manga for Shonen Jump Magazine in 1994, featuring the once deadly assassin trying to turn his life around during the Meiji Restoration era.

FEATURED STORIES

The manga’s popularity resulted in a 95-episode TV anime series, an anime film, three original video animes, threelive-action films and even a stage musical.

In 2014, Watsuki released a spinoff manga titled “Honō wo Suberu -Rurouni Kenshin: Uramaku-” (Controlling Flame -Rurouni Kenshin: Hidden Chapter), which focused on the series’ antagonists, Shishio Makoto and Yumi Komagata.

As of this writing, it has yet to be confirmed if the new story arc will have an anime adaptation as well. Khristian Ibarrola /ra
