Touken Ranbu (刀剣乱舞) is a franchise based on a free online web browser game by DMM. It's a bishie collector game where players assume the role of a Saniwa sage (審神者) who travels into the past to defeat evil forces that are trying to change the course of history. As a sage, you have the ability to bring famous historical swords to life as touken danshi, aka hot sword guys.
Your duty is to bring these blades to life, create an army, and defeat the enemies!

Some serious shit is about to go down in the browser game! We are training against a Great Invasion and Mikazuki is making cryptic comments (of course) about waiting for a white moon. And this half-fox guy sent some message from the goverment.

Jiji has always been suspicous but this takes the cake. I feel oddly heartbroken about him leaving, although I'm sure it's for a good reason. Perhaps he will kiwame after this?
This event is so cool though! Love how it's ALL players vs the HRA! And we are doing very well.

Same, kek, that was honestly a great event, I love my boys so much. I wonder if the movie will address what happened in the game or if we’re going to get some movie or even a series about what happened. I mean, this is basically the end of the game plot wise, right?
File: 1649085246322.png (522 KB, 2000x1500, FPaO4KcaIAAYAm6.png)
From what I understand it's the end of chapter one only. So there will be more story!
By movie do you mean the Hanamaru ones or live action?
Pic is how I feel about Jiji right now, I love you man don't do that shit.

He's home,,, I can't believe this. No hate but this is the best toudan that dropped in years… Can't wait to level him up !
! He’s so beautiful, I hope I can get him but I could barely get the first pigeon, so it’s kind of hopeless tbh.
The first Hanamaru movie will be out soon but I just realized…how do you even watch it outside of Japan? Wait for DVD rips? I need my dose of wholesome sword content.>>204899
I couldn't be bothered to get him after my massive struggle to get Shichiseiken, what do you like about him? Hot body aside.

There is going to be some mystery "UPDATE" in december with a modern Tokyo in the background. I wonder what that's all about?
I enjoyed Warriors!
They all have different fighting styles - aside from the two Yamanbagaris. I had a lot of fun playing as all the different characters, even the swords I don't care for grew on me while playing the game. I do hope they make a sequel with even more of the boys. No character DLC so far, just backgrounds and casual outfits.

A sexy hunk sword so I actually feel motivated to get him, kek.
Anyone know if the newer anime releases like >>191810
are already subbed somewere? I've tried looking for them but so far I've only found the two hanamaru seasons and katsugeki…
Don't worry, you'll get him eventually. Last new year's players also got a gift of one sword of their choice, so maybe it'll happen again. >>260526
Hell yeah, about time. Something to look forward to in January.

I love them all tbh, watching the anime made me like them even more, the stage plays are awesome as well, it really gives you that context that makes you love them.

I have to say I'm glad they're actually working on the game though. It has felt stagnant. They produce and make money from all these other parts of the franchise but the original game needs love too.
Ayrt same idk how the devs didn't think to put an accept all button on the main missions>>292347
I'm glad too, honestly I think the reason why we're just now getting a modern upgrade to the game is thanks to both the recent live action movie and the musicals, even though the "present timeline" was only touched upon a bit in tokyo kokoro oboe.

Thank you for being so reliable when I need to level up baby swords. you are such a great, protective teacher.
Thank you for being so reliable when all of your brothers are either injured or fatigued and I need to progress through an event. I just send you with another sword or 2 and you do all the work, destroying the whole enemy team with one ferocious swipe.
And lastly, thank you for the risqué "a-aruji.." you grunt when I tap these sculpted, succulent abs. Being patient and leveling you up was the best choice of my saniwa career.
Thank you, Shizukagata.

I like him. Finally a new sword I feel like I need to get!
I feel the same, this is the first new sword in a LONG time that I'm interested in getting.
I like that he looks clearly burnt in Honnoji with the flame scars and ashen hair but he seems chill unlike Souza. Also i wonder if he wants a hug or is just conversing like an Italian.

>We kindly ask for your understanding
You're getting rid off all our boys, all our hard work. NO UNDERSTANDING
Servers/translations cost money, not enough people pay money, servers get closed down.
How long was the EN ver a thing anyway?
I'm surprised it's lasted so long in JP considering how bare bones of a game it is. But I guess it has its niche.
I was so thankful that they had made an english version for us overseas fans so I only played the english version this past 2 and a half years. What a heartbreak that they will just take our Honmarus away from us without even a proper explanation or apology.>>305068
It's really awful. All the time spent on that game. I just bought a bunch of items to help me get Jikkyu. A complete waste.
I'm going to email Johren and complain about them not wanting to transfer us to the jp server at least.
No. I just can’t believe it will get removed just like that. I know it only came out worldwide in 2021 which is when I started playing the game. And I know I should’ve known better because yeah, the game is ridiculously simple and you’re basically just staring at cute static pictures of pretty boys and listening to their smooth voices.
But I don’t know, I just can’t believe this is happening, I was playing daily since it came out, then I honestly stopped playing that much for a while, but still.
It’s just so shitty, I hate when Japanese companies do this shit, why release a worldwide version if they know it won’t make the profits they expect? even the magia record game went through the same shit, and we’re talking about waifufags spending heaps of money on that game for a crumb of their waifu’s legs.
Like, just don’t release the English version, that’s it. I don’t think I wasted my time because I love my swords, but it still feels like a slap on the face, no matter how many times I’ve gone through this.

This has gotten to me emotionally…I know it's just a browser game but logging in there daily was a comforting thing. The world changes in unpredictable ways, but you got control over your Honmaru. The worst part is how nonchallantly it has been announced. No respect for us players.
