Starting in January 2007, writer Nisio Isin and artist take released a series of 12 (13 with spinoff) light novels with their unique perspective on the historical wandering swordsman, titled Katanagatari. In January 2010, this would be adapted into a series of monthly, 50-minute anime episodes by a then-new White Fox (later Steins;Gate and Re:Zero). That was released by NIS in North America in 2011, and re-broadcast by Noitamina in Japan in 2013.
While the 10th anniversary has so far been rather understated, Take, then Nisio Isin, did take the opportunity to revist Yasuri Shichika and Togame.
