News: Re:ZERO studio produce new anime based on samurai manga Peace Maker Kurogane

In April, the 10th compiled volume of Nanae Chrono’s Peace Maker Kurogane manga announced that plans were in place for a new anime adaptation of the samurai-inspired historical fiction. At the time, no other details as to a team or release were available, but now volume 11 is out, it’s been revealed that none other than Re:ZERO studio WHITE FOX is on production. The studio was also behind the 2011 Steins;Gate anime series.

The 2001 manga following the factual Shinsengumi swordsman Tetsunosuke Ichimura was released in English by TokyoPop, who acquired it once ADV Manga’s license expired after publishing three of five volumes. The first anime by Gonzo Digimation and produced by Geneon ran for 24 episodes from October 2003-March 2004, and was released in the US by FUNimation. A live-action adaptation followed, titled Shinsengumi Peace Maker, premiering in January 2010 and airing until March the same year.
