Sorry this is quite late since I’m quite busy with reviewing for the PT Licensure exam like I said on my Spring preview. Anyhow, these are my impressions on some of the series I manage to watch on my free time and as you can see from the title there will be a Part 2 so watch out for it. Btw, those impressions below are solely based on the first episode of the series I’ve watched. Now on to the first impressions after the jump.
Title: Rurouni Kenshin (るろうに剣心)
Genre: Historical, Action, Romance, Drama
Former legendary assassin Kenshin Himura (Takeru Sato) has now become a wandering samurai. Offering aid & protecting those in need as atonement for his past deeds. During this time comes across and aides Kaoru Kamiya (Emi Takei). Her father opened the Kamiya Kasshin-ryu, a kendo school located in Tokyo and Kaoru is now an instructor there. Kaoru then invites Kenshin to stay at her dojo. Their relationship develops further, but Kenshin is still haunted by his violent past … Based on popular manga series “Rurouni Kenshin” written & illustrated by Watsuki Nobuhiro – published in Weekly Shonen Jump from September 2, 1994 – November 4, 1999.
A whooping 44 shows this spring 2013 and I did not even included kiddie shows this time and it’s still a lot. Though I included Anime Mirai shows since some of them looked interesting.
I’m back (for now) and will be giving you guys Spring 2013 Anime Preview with the Notable Staff/Cast just like what I posted last year. I did my best to make it as complete as possible but I might have overlooked something so feel free to point it out to me and I’ll fix it ASAP. If you make it to the end I’ve posted my Top 5 picks this season. I hope you’ll find interesting shows this spring!
Now on to the Spring 2013 Anime Preview!
