Rurouni Kenshin: English Reprint Includes New Story

Kenshin Manga

American Manga distributor Viz has been re-releasing the entire manga of Rurouni Kenshin in big volumes. If you want to know how big the volumes are, this series was originally 28 volumes, and they managed to squeez it into just 9! The final volume, being released in March 2010 will contain two side stories Yahiko no Sakabato and another unnamed side story in all color which was never printed in English (which is probably Rurouni Kenshin: Haru ni Sakura, but the site does not go into detail.)

As a huge fan of Rurouni Kenshin (who still has not purchased all the volumes), I may consider picking these up. though it doesn’t seem like I will save much money. It costs approximately $15 apiece ($135 not including shipping) while I can buy the entire used series on E-bay or Amazon for much less ($60-80) if I’m willing to go without Yahiko no Sakabato and Haru ni Sakura.
