Honey’s Highlights

Who else is feeling the TKRB hype? I cannot WAIT for Katsugeki Touken Ranbu! As much as I loved Touken Ranbu Hanamaru, I'm itching for something more serious.

I know what you mean, unlike Hanamaru, this looks as though it will be more focused on the battles and history behind the sword boys. This definitely gives off those dark Hakuouki vibes.

Doesn't this make you think of Donten ni Warau and Rurouni Kenshin, too? The action in the PV looks amazing!

This series is by ufotable, too, so we can see all our sword boys in a different style to Hanamaru. It also seems like the main focus will be on different characters. No matter what the case, this is definitely true: they all look damn good.

Synopsis

The year is 2205, a time when Alternate Historicists are attacking the past in an attempt to change history. The Saniwa sage has a mission to protect that history, and so has gathered the strongest type of Tsukumogami (inanimate objects inhabited by spirits) in the Inner Citadel, the Touken Danshi (Sword Warriors).

Characters & Voice Actors List

Konnosuke

Voice Actor: Takuma Nagatsuka


Konnosuke acts with the touken danshi and is a kuda fox who supports the boys on their missions.

Saniwa

Voice Actor: Junko Minagawa


Saniwa is the owner who controls the touken danshi. Having the power to move the hearts and minds of others, he dispatches the touken danshi, who are going against the flow of time to protect history, to the front lines.

Kuninaga Tsurumaru

Voice Actor: Soma Saito


A longsword forged by swordsmith Gojou Kuninaga from the Heian period, his characteristic is that his white clothing gives off the impression of a crane. In contrast to his elegant exterior, his personality is witty and eccentric. Among the members of his group, he has bountiful experience as a touken danshi.

Tonbokiri

Voice Actor: Tooru Sakurai


Tonbokiri is a spear forged under the school of Muramasa by Masazane Fujiwara. He is extolled as one of the Three Great Spears of Japan. The origin of his name is that it is so sharp, that a dragonfly once landed on it and was sliced in half immediately. Simple and sincere, he was often dispatched to the front lines of the Sengoku period.

Yagen Toushirou

Voice Actor: Seiichirou Yamashita


Toushirou is a dagger forged by Yoshimitsu Awataguchi. The name Yagen comes from the reputation it had that it was extraordinarily sharp enough to slice a druggist’s mortar, but it would never cut its owner. Cool, calm, and collected, this touken danshi has a long history of dedication to his missions.

Horikawa Kunihiro

Voice Actor: Junya Enoki


Kunihiro is a short sword forged in the Azuchi-Momoyama period by Kunihiro Horikawa. It is said that he was the favorite of the vice-commander of the Shinsengumi, Toshizou Hijikata. He is both the partner and assistant to Kanesada Izuminokami. Kunihiro was recently manifested as a touken danshi and this is his first time in a group.

Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki

Voice Actor: Kento Hama


Yoshiyuki is known as Ryouma Sakamoto’s favorite Japanese sword. Honest, Cheerful, and liking new things, he treasures forward-thinking. He thinks that swords are outdated, so in actual fights, he uses a pistol with a sword to fight.

Izuminokami Kanesada

Voice Actor: Ryouhei Kimura


Forged at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate by swordsmith Kanesada, he is a Japanese sword who was also loved by the vice-commander of the Shinsengumi, Toshizou Hijikata. Excelling in both the looks and skills department, his downfall is that he has a short temper.
