Ladies and gentlemen, everyone’s favorite red-headed samurai with a X-shaped scar is back! Kenshin Himura, also known as Battousai the Slasher, will be returning for the Rurouni Kenshin: Hokkaido Arc manga. With the return manga launching on Jump Sq. this summer, what better way than to hype up the manga during Golden Week? And with travelers heading to train stations  to get to where they want to spend their vacation in, what better way to promote his return than in one of Japan’s busiest train stations, Shinjuku Station?

Nobuhiro Watsuki will be launching the manga this summer via Jump Sq. Magazine. The manga was originally slated to be released in Spring 2017, but was delayed to Summer 2017.  It will once again follow the wandering samurai, Kenshin Himura. It would also seem that this “Hokkaido Arc” will consist of five “arcs”.

Now, who’s excited for Kenshin’s return? We sure are!
