Rurouni Kenshin Manga Returns After Author’s Child Pornography Fine

rurouni kenshinBack in February, Rurouni Kenshin author Nobuhiro Watsuki was officially fined for possession of child pornography. He ended up having to pay a total of ¥200,000 (about $1,845), but did not face any jail time as a result. Now Jump SQ. is here with news that Watsuki’s Rurouni Kenshin: Hokkaido Arc manga will resume in the magazine on June 4.

Jump SQ. apologized for the hiatus and had the following to say about concerns surrounding the manga’s return:

“The author spends his days reflecting and with remorse, and [we] think as though it’s our obligation as a publisher as well as his as an author [to] make a way for us to reply through the work to the various opinions we’ve been getting, and so, from the July issue, which goes on sale June 4, serialization will resume.”
