Well nobody has actually said that, that’s just a theory going around. All we know for sure are that Kenshin and Kaoru have new seiyuus.

But at the same time they’ll have to change some of the seiyuus at the very least. Some of them like Aoshi’s are pretty dang old. I also expect a lot of newer blood in the cast list.

And one of them is already dead.

They're gonna change all of them or close, guaranteed. New studio, new director, new leads - it makes no sense to do some kind of hybrid.

Yes, I know. Hirotaka Suzuoki remains one of my favorite seiyuus to date.

Like I said, yes I also expect a lot of new blood in the cast. I’m just saying they haven’t officially said anything.
But I think Narita has a good chance of staying on as Saito since he’s already succeeding that role.

Yeah, I'm expecting this is going to be more of a Fruits Basket situation than Shaman King as far as the cast goes.

Not sure that would be a huge impediment since, IMO at least, Masanori Ikeda already sounded wicked cool in the role.

Junichi Suwabe was also one of the seiyuu I thought might be good for Shishio, along with Kazuya Nakai and Nobuyuki Hiyama. But they might get someone more trendy from a slightly younger generation (and I am not as familiar with those).

Akio Ohtsuka was mentioned for Shishio earlier too, but I’ve just remembered he already voiced Jin-e in the original so that seems unlikely.

That wicked part is what I'm referring to. As far I experienced antagonist voiced by Suwabe (Atobe from Prince of Tennis, Aomine from Kuroko no Basket, Undertaker from Black Butler, Reinhard from Dies Irae), they doesn't came out as someone wicked so I found Suwabe unfitting for him. Even so, I could understand reason why some found Suwabe is fitting (Sukuna from Jujutsu Kaisen and his base voice can do for Soujirou flashback).

I would put Takahiro Sakurai as one of Enishi candidate.

Won't be full-on stressful like Yuki Kaji who got experience of frustrated screaming with Eren but he got Suzaku.

I wonder if they'll have Rie Takahashi do a cover of "Freckles." I feel like she'll end up having to do a theme at some point .

All I know is they should bring back It's Gonna Rain as the ED, either to kick off the series or for the Kyoto Arc. Iconic doesn't even begin to cover it where that one is concerned.

I get what you mean. Personally I want Heart of Sword to return as part of the reboot's soundtrack.

Majority of the tracks in the OST are great, a few are iconic at this point. 1/3 no Junjou no Kanjou was pretty great too as far as EDs go.

The only one I can't particularly enjoy was the ED they used in the final arc. It felt weirdly out of place, though the entire final arc was itself out of place.

I mean, Liden already has limited resources as is and you want them to buy the rights to use the old song too?

I don't think this show will be hurting for budget, or they wouldn't have bothered in the first place. The RK franchise is enormously profitable across many channels.

The unfortunate thing is that since it's meant to be a fully fledged reboot, it's uninown if they'll reuse some of the iconic theme songs (even if they're just covers) or if they'll discard all of it to only make all-new songs.

If Bastard!! & Arslan are any indication, Liden will scrap most things (if not all) from the previous anime versions & start totally fresh. Unless Watsuki wants some things from the old RK anime to stay.

With a new generation of people getting into anime and the huge success of the live action movies, hopefully we get a huge boost in Kenshin fans.

I had forgotten about the song but now I'm listening to it on loop. Don't @ me

Their Bastard!! did have some great theme songs though...

Full details coming at Jump Festa 12/18, unsurprisingly. A year after the announcement, LOL.
