Average Rating

In the year 2205, a special sage known as Saniwa has the ability to breathe life into inanimate objects. At the same time, dark forces have initiated a plot to travel back in time and change the course of history—and the only ones capable of stopping them are the Saniwa and their strongest animations: historical Japanese swords, in the form of handsome young men. Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru opens on the life of Yamatonokami Yasusada, Souji Okita's beloved uchigatana, as he begins his first day at the Saniwa's citadel. Soon reuniting with his old friend, Kashuu Kiyomitsu, the two are caught up in the daily antics of their fellow sword warriors. They never miss an opportunity to have fun, whether it be through wild snowball fights or introducing their newest comrades to the citadel. Of course, when the government calls, the swords are always ready to fulfill their mission of protecting history.

Unexpectedly entertaining cute boys doing cute things show. Heartwarming, but way too many characters to keep track of.


Charming and non-threatening to the pallet, but an interesting take on Touken Ranbu. The more action-packed scenes are the really good.


Haha, my husbando is adorable


The game is so hit it’s amazing. Those fanservice scenes though (shipping).


A funny show but it’s really just side fluff and humor to those that already played the game


Cute sword boys doing cute things with occasional history stuff. Struggled at establishing the premise. Huge cast most of whom get no focus.


as a non game-player, standard of action scenes drove me away



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
