The spirit of the samurai shall burn on a longer and more impressively than it has in the past!
Earlier today, Katsugeki! Touken Ranbu aired its final episode. At the end of the credits, viewers were greeted with an announcement that the series will receive a theatrical film project.
The specific format, including the number of films, has yet to be disclosed as of press time.
The Katsugeki Touken Ranbu TV series premiered on July 1. The show is a spinoff from Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru. Toshiyuki Shirai directed the project at ufotable, with Akira Matsushima (Maria Watches Over Us, Tales of Zestiria the X) providing character designs. Hideyuki Fukasawa (Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works, Flowers of Evil) scored the show’s soundtrack.
Aniplex of America describes Katsugeki Touken Ranbu as:
The year is 1863 as the tumultuous samurai era is coming to an end, Japan is split between the pro-shogunate and anti-shogunate factions. The fate of the world is threatened as an army of historical revisionists are sent from the future to alter the course of history. In order to bring these forces down and protect the real history, two sword warriors, spirits who are swords brought to life by Saniwa (sage), rush to Edo. The polite and thoughtful Horikawa Kunihiro and the short tempered yet skillful Izuminokami Kanesada, who served the same master, confront the invading army along with a lively gang of other warriors including Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki, Yagen Toushirou, Tombokiri, and Tsurumaru Kuninaga.
As the fate of history lies in these hero’s hands, what meets the blade is yet to be uncovered…
