It took a few days, but the lovelies from the future are finally showing up.
Earlier today, Crunchyroll announced that they will stream Touken Ranbu – Hanamaru 2 as part of their Winter 2018 simulcast lineup. The publisher will release details on première dates and territories at a later date.
The series originally hit Japanese TV on January 7.
Touken Ranbu – Hanamaru is based on DMM’s Tōken Ranbu online browser-based video game. Takashi Naoya (Luck & Logic) directed the show’s first season at Doga Kobo, with Junichiro Taniguchi providing character designs. Pierre Sugiura (Barakamon, Bottom Biting Bug) was in charge of series composition and writing the show’s scripts.
The first season aired in the Fall 2016 broadcast period. Crunchyroll streamed the show as it aired, while Funimation produced a SimulDub.
Crunchyroll describes the title as:
In the year 2205, the past becomes threatened by the historical revisionists who seek to change it. Protecting history becomes the task of a boisterous band of swords that are brought to life, including the glamorous Kashu Kiyomitsu and the kindly Yamatonokami Yasusada. Beyond their battles, these legendary swords from different eras lead charming daily lives.
