North American anime distributor Discotek Media announced on Tuesday that it licensed the Flame of Recca television anime series. The company plans to release all 42 episodes with the English dub, as well as with Japanese audio and English subtitles, next year.
The 42-episode series adapts Nobuyuki Anzai's manga of the same name. The story follows Recca, a boy who claims to be a ninja and will serve whomever defeats him in combat. One day he meets a girl named Yanagi who can heal almost any injury. He chooses to serve her and finds out that he has his own special powers as a descendant of the Hokage ninja clan.
Viz Media previously released the series on DVD from 2004 to 2007. Viz also released the 33-volume manga series in North America.
