In a story involving time travel, it’s practically impossible not to bring up the “meeting your parents” trope, but Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu pulls it off in a historically creative way.

The characters in Touken Ranbu are based on real historical Japanese blades. Let’s have a look at some of the one from the new series, shall we?

You have enemies who out to change time by altering events in the past. You need to stop those enemies. So you send warriors into the past to prevent things from being changed. It’s a fairly simple premise. Touken Ranbu likes to remind us that it’s not that simple in practice.

The action of the new Touken Ranbu series looks good. Really good. There’s a reason for that.

Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru is based on the free-to-play video game, Touken Ranbu. As such, elements of the original game find their way into the anime series in various places–some of which you might not expect. The latest kind of made me feel bad about how I play such games.
