For now, it’s confirmed that the screening will begin in Japan on June 18. It’s expected that the screenings in other countries will happen around the same time, or later by around 1-2 weeks.
In case you missed it, this new Rurouni Kenshin anime is another adaptation of the classic manga series. Essentially, you can think of it as a remake of the original 90s anime.
While many are excited for this new anime, there are also anime fans who have reservations about it. Some are even calling for boycotts because of the problematic CP charges against creator Nobuhiro Watsuki.
The Rurouni Kenshin 2023 anime will be releases in cinemas in the Philippines soon. While there’s no release date yet, it’s likely that it will be released in late June or early July at the latest.
