Nothing beats historical action anime, and one produced by ufotable is nothing less than art. Yes, I’m talking about none other than the Katsugeki: Touken Ranbu series.
After a brilliant season back in 2017, the franchise is back with more for fans who missed the show dearly. Although, the season finale gave us a movie announcement that never really came through and left us wondering about it.
And now ufotable has finally announced something that has yet again awakened the thrill for the anime in us.
Studio ufotable unveiled a new teaser for Katsugeki: Touken Ranbu anime confirming that the film is under production.
The exhilarating teaser features the main characters of the story, Izuminokami Kanesada, Horikawa Kunihiro, Tonbokiri, Yagen Toushirou, Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki, and Tsurumaru Kuninaga.
They are shown unsheathing their swords and knives and preparing their guns to fight.
Their enemy this time is the mysterious entity called the Time Retrograde Army, which is rumored to have the ability to change history.
With such a formidable and deadly opponent, our heroes can only tough it out and fight till they stop them for good.
Moreover, the franchise also revealed a visual featuring Izuminokami Kanesada with his sword in hand as he sits down in a combat stance with mesmerizing cherry blossoms in the background.
The movie version of “Lively Touken Ranbu” is under planning.
The teaser visual drawn by ufotable has been released.
We had announced today on December 29, 2021, when we announced the title of “Lively Touken Ranbu” and the first key visual.
Thank you for your continued support.

With political instability all around as people get divided into pro-shogunate and anti-shogunate factions, how do you think our heroes will handle the situation?
I am curious to see how this factor affects the overall story as it will blend some fictional aspects into real ones.
