“Rurouni Kenshin” Characters Reimagined in Sumi-e

Traditional art meets one of anime’s favorite swordsmen in a line of sumi-e wall art now available from Aniplex.



The three pieces feature Himura Kenshin himself, Makoto Shishio, and Hajime Saito.


Each piece was created by sumi-e master Okazu, whose recent works include the cover for the T.M. Revolution single “RAIMEI” and illustrations for the GARO anime.


Each piece costs 7,560 yen (about $64.41) and must be reserved before January 9. Orders will be shipped out next month.
