Digital Weekly Shonen Jump to Publish Rurouni Kenshin Spin-Off

The English version of Viz’s digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine will be publishing the first chapter of Nobuhiro Watsuki’s “Honō wo Suberu -Rurouni Kenshin: Uramaku-” (Controlling Flame -Rurouni Kenshin: Hidden Chapter-) spinoff manga on its July 14th issue. The second and final chapter will then run a month later.

The two-chapter spin-off manga will focus on the story of how the series antagonist Shishio Makoto and Yumi Komagata met, and will delve into the events that led to the formation of the Juppongatana. Shueisha published the first chapter in the August issue of Jump SQ, which was released last Friday.

Shueisha describes the spin-off as “The flag-raising of the evil that evil fell in love with is finally being revealed.” It is said that Watsuki penned the story in order to support the two live action films that are slated to open on August 1 and September 13 in Japan.
