The original manga was serialised between April 25, 1994 – September 21, 1999 in Weekly Shonen Jump. Presently, Rurouni Kenshin: The Hokkaido Arc is serialised in Jump Square but due to Child Pornography charges on the author the series went on Hiatus in November 2017 and was later resumed serialization in June 2018.
