I didn't dislike FUNi's Hanamaru dub... I think I am a bit lenient because I really like Jad Saxton and that was her first time directing anything, but I think most of the voices fit well enough. Also, there are a few I'm not too fond of in Japanese, actually.

Izuminokami isn't a typical hero type (if only because of his hair and earrings <3) but I still feel like as far as voice acting is concerned, he's "typical-hero" in the sense that the voice actor playing him would use a more-or-less "hero voice". JYB does roles that aren't that so well, I think it would be a waste to cast him, as opposed to someone who can just do that. (Ryohei Kimura also has done a lot of really good characters that aren't that)

(Horikawa's seiyuu is Junya Enoki, I think. Pretty sure I looked it up because he's in Yume100 or something...)


I couldn't remember Hori's VA's name. I know hes been in a few things though.


Meanwhile, Mikazuki be like, 'HAHAHA ufotable forgot meeee..'


I'd agree with you on Izuminokami though except for the fact that almost everything that I've seen promoting this series is featuring him the most. Maybe the show itself is going for an ensemble feel(with Yagen, Tsurumaru, Tonbotiddy and Mutsu) but it sure seems like ufotable is hyping up Izumi as the big MC/hero in this.

Not that I'm complaining because dayuuum Izumi is gorgeous And I like all of the swords featured in this.


Still a little disappointed that my boy Kasen isn't in this though.

JYB as Yagen would just... kill me, though. Too perfect.

Matt Mercer for Izuminokami?

About that eight designers thing, that's interesting. Wonder how that works.

Also, is Hachisuka in it, or was he just on that festival poster because he's relevant to that region?

OH AND the fact that the Saniwa is a character now. With a designer. And the seiyuu who played Cornelia in Code Geass.

tkrb katsugeki twitter haven't say anything about whether hachisuka will be in the anime or not,
but according to animenews, he's in the poster too bc his name comes from the Hachisuka clan.
and, as for Nagasone & Urashima, it's ofc bc they're kotetsu bros xDD

really happy bc the saniwa is a character now, PLUS i heard that saniwa will be a male saniwa ??? lmfao

Actually, for Yagen...I don't know his name offhand, but I was thinking of Eren's VA. I think he was Kirito in SAO as well.

I can kind of see Matt Mercer for Izuminokami...Robby Diamond would be good too.


As much as I"m surprised that they included an actual saniwa character...I can see why they're male instead of female. A female would've made this a completely different series.

And Yun from Yona is the Saniwa.: Can't wait to hear him bitch at Tsuru for trolling or whenever Izumi gets cocky XD

someone posted this on wiki, saniwa & konnosuke design. And we still don't know the gender orz.
may be they'll go down to androgynous route or smth ?? plus since the VA can do both gender.

lmfao, and yea cant wait the saniwa gets angry at toudan antics xD

Ahhh!! Tiny boy Saniwa!

Tiny boy fudanshi who's into early-21st-century anime and idol stuff, 200 years in the future.

Perfect.

++ Bryce Papenbrook? Ehhh I'm not to into him, but I just know him as Masaomi Kida in Durarara!!, so...

The Saniwa reminds me of another anime character that I can't quite place. I'm more intrigued by the fact that Konnosuke is getting a voice.

True fact: For the longest time I thought Konnosuke was the name of Kaneki Ken's fox

Come to think of it, he'd be good for Horikawa as well...

Recently, there has been a good amount of video game into anime shows. For example, Granblue Fantasy and Rage of Bahamut. The potential is definitely there for Touken Rambu. I'll have to keep this show on my radar when the summer season rolls around.

If you're not sure who exactly the swords are, you might want to watch Hanamaru first. Both series have Shisengumi swords as MCs...

Ok. Thanks for the advice. Is this a continuation? I saw the conversation and I was interested in the show. If it is, do you know what the shows are and where I can find them? I see that Hanamaru is related (spinoff or first season?) but are there any others as well?

actually even if you don't watch hanamaru is fine, bc it's only daily live of touken danshi, and most likely won't give you any difficulties even if you watch Katsugeki without hanamaru (though indeed hanamaru introduced the sword boys & gives a bit of backstory of few boys). And you can watch Hanamaru on crunchyroll, just type touken ranbu on crunchyroll search bar and you'll find it.
