Katekyo Hitman Reborn Fans in Japan Believe a New Anime is Coming

Tsuna might be back soon in a new Katekyo Hitman Reborn anime

February 10, 2022

Katekyo Hitman Reborn might be back soon with a new anime, at least that’s what part of the Japanese fan base believes.

Reborn! is the story of Tsunayoshi Sawada, known as Tsuna, a kid in love with the cutest girl at school, but she’s considered to be completely out of his league. One day, Tsuna’s life changes completely after meeting with the baby mafioso and assassin Reborn, who starts training Tsuna into becoming the 10th Boss of the Vongola Italian mafia family. Tsuna himself is reborn, thanks to his new friends and an arsenal of special items at his disposal.

The original Reborn manga, also called Katekyo Hitman Reborn, or Kateikyoushi Hitman Reborn!, was published by Akira Amano from 2004 to 2012 in Weekly Shonen Jump, with 42 volumes in total.


An anime adaptation also aired from 2006 to 2010, with 203 episodes in total, but it never reached the manga’s ending. The last episodes of the anime only covered the story up to volume 30. Reborn is pretty much in the same situation as Bleach, which is getting a new anime to adapt its last arc. That’s why many Reborn! fans hope a new anime will be coming some day.

Katekyo Hitman Reborn anime series gets new Twitter account

A new Twitter account to promote the Reborn! anime series was opened in January 2022 @khreborn_pr. The account was made public on February 8 with a first tweet, and now fans in Japan believe a new Reborn! anime is definitely coming.

It’s interesting to note the account in its bio specifically calls itself an account “promoting the Reborn “anime”. However, no new anime has been announced as of now. The account will share new information and event announcements in the future. Update: the account’s bio was at some point changed to “promoting merch”.

再アニメ化” “anime adaptation restart” has been trending all the week of February 7 on Twitter, with the vast majority of tweets being about Reborn. Do you think a new Reborn anime is actually happening, and did you like the original series? Tell us in the comments below!
