Yup., you didnt read it wrong! The new anime was green-lit and was announced in ANN.. But the date of the news is on 14th April so i was actually late on getting on this news.. Anyway some info on it has came out.
- It will animated by Studio DEEN which is the original producer (OMG!! I dont know this)
- It will be directed by the same old director as the last one
- The cast will remain the same except for the role of Hajime Saitō, who will be played by Ken Narita.
- The remake will be about the battle of the Kyoto arc where Kenshin battles Shishio which will be told from Misao's view
- it will come out somewhere in December this year in OVA format
PS: I just hope this time they will finish it until Enishi's arc/Final Arc
