About Rurouni Kenshin:
The manga was first launched in 1994 by author Nobuhiro Watsuki, and was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump by Shueisha, and follows Kenshin Himura who used to be a dangerous assassin and is now trying to find a new life without violence or killing.
The manga relaunched with a new arc in 2017 as part of the Jump SQ magazine by Shueisha titled Rurouni Kenshin: Hokkaido Arc but quickly went on hiatus in December of that year when the author was officially charged for possession of child pornography. The hiatus didn’t last long as in June 2018 it began publication once more.
The manga has had FIVE live-action movies, a musical, an anime film, and of course the original anime series we all know.
