Sorry, fans. I know that's what most of you demanded with every rumor of Kenshin's return, but it's not happening this time, either. Instead, you're getting Shin Kyoto-hen, a retelling of Kenshin and crew's famous fight against gunpowder-gloved mummy-man Makoto Shishio, viewed through the eyes of Misao, that little ninja girl. Why her? Beats me, it's been a long time since I last saw an episode of Samurai X Rurouni Kenshin The Show That Convinced Everyone Holding Your Sword The Wrong Way Is A Good Strategy.
Then again, Jinchu faithful shouldn't extinguish their torches just yet. Shin Kyoto-hen is the title of the first episode of the two-parter release. Who knows, the second part might the bone you've been waiting for Aniplex and Studio DEEN to throw you.
Until then, you can entertain yourselves by watching the timeless Nico Nico meme below. Futae no Kiwami--AAAAAAAH!
