Rurouni Tenken?

Does anyone know if Watsuki has plans for any further stories of the Meiji Era? I think that there is story potential there with the likes of Sojirou ... who in a sense is the spiritual sucessor to Kenshin ( as far as mindset and circumstance ).

Hmmmm ... Rurouni Tenken anyone?

Yeah Watsuki did say he'd like to make a series about Soujiro,but considering how long it's been since he first mentionned this and there's no news of "Rurouni Tenken",I really doubt It would happen.Besides,as fun as it would be,it would seem redundant to have another story about an ex-assassin of extraordinary talent with a sudden conscience travelling Japan.

Well, the nice thing is that there would be new elements and challenges in the form of technology and changing world views ...

... and things like plot emphasis could change the pace of the story in that it has more to do with the journey ... as opposed to the Climax i.e. RK with its story arcs (after 10 years of wandering) ...

So depending on the plot type ... there could be a world of difference between "Wandering Sword from Heaven" and "Kenshin the Vagabond".

... and in any case there should be at least one "Rurouni X" per generation ... someone has to protect the weak and downtrodden from the predators.

Never heard about Watsuki making another story based on the Meiji Era like Rurouni Kenshin. I'll go check it out and see if it is happening.
