Viz Reprints Rurouni Kenshin Omnibus Editions
Earlier this month, Viz released the first volume of a new Rurouni Kenshin 3-in-1 omnibus series. The book contains the first three installments of the series about a wandering ronin by Nobuhiro Watsuki at a suggested retail price of $14.99 a volume. The series will continue quarterly.
Rurouni Kenshin was first serialized in English beginning in 2003. The 28 volumes originally were published in Japan from 1994-1999. There have been anime and film adaptations, as well as a previous oversized omnibus release in 2008. Here’s the official series description:
In Rurouni Kenshin, Himura Battosai was once an assassin of ferocious power during the violent upheaval of the Bakumatsu era. But as the Meiji Restoration heals the wounds of civil war, Battosai takes up a new name and a new calling. As Himura Kenshin, he now fights only to protect the honor of those in need.
