Touken Ranbu


The first part of the Toku Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru ~Setsugetsuka~ anime film trilogy is set to open in Japan on May 20, ushering in "Yuki no Maki" ("Chapter Snow") under the direction of Takashi Naoya, who returns from helming the first season of the TV anime. In the meantime, a new trailer is here to show action-packed footage from the inaugural chapter along with a preview of the voice cast's "Hanamaru-tayori no Mau Koro ni" opening theme song, composed and arranged by Shuhei Mutsuki with lyrics by eNu.



There's also a new key visual:



Following two seasons of the Touken Ranbu - Hanamaru TV anime in 2016 and 2018, the film project was announced in February 2021. Throughout the three chapters, 24 new sword boys will be introduced, for a total of 86 sword boys.


After the first chapter, the second—"Tsuki no Maki (Chapter Moon)"—directed by Tomoaki Koshida (TV series second season director) and the third—"Hana no Maki (Chapter Flower)"—directed by Sumie Noro (Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle assistant director) will follow on July 8 and September 1, respectively. Junichiro Taniguchi, who has worked on all of the previous series, again serves as character designer and chief animation director. Doga Kobo works on anime production.
