But we'll see. And then once the Eiroku arc is over I feel like the last few episodes will be unit 1 and 2 coming together to defeat the retrograde army. A cool, big fight.. ( speculation )


That would be good... I just want as much Honebami as I can get...

. . . . . I hope he gets some angsty part or something, because his voice actor is so great and I just want him to get a really good scene... (he plays one of the characters in my icon, from the idol anime I like ^_^)

Really hoping Unit 1's mission doesn't last just 2 episodes especially since unit 2 got 5 episodes to develop almost all the characters except tsurumaru who came incredibly late for some reason. ( they were dragging it out but still ) it would be unfair. Ufotable should give Unit 1 an equal amount of time focus since they're the next main character unit of Katsugeki.

Since Mikazuki is a main character as well they shouldn't treat his mission with Unit 1 like its a side quest while Unit 2 chills. I don't care if their mission has the same formulaic slow pacing as the previous 5 episodes. I just wanna see how Unit 1 works as a team and how the mission goes in the same amount of time as it took for Unit 2 to fail their mission.

The official synposis of the series specifically mentions Izumi and co though. Also, all of the promotional stuff has Team Izumi featured...

I've only seen Jiji on one charm so far.


However, I do agree that the last few episodes will probably feature both Team Izumi/Team Jiji to fight the Army. Jiji and that group aren't featured in the OP for nothing.


My guess is that we'll spend the next few episodes split between Team Jiji and Izumi/Tonbo(if he lives) recovering from what happened. I'm interested in seeing Oodenta, Hizamaru and Higekiri though.

I feel like Honebami will get a lot of focus with Mikazuki because they were both Ashikaga and there's no reason not to. I hope ufotable expands on their relationship and that Honebami can act as a crutch for Mikazuki who will likely have a bad time having to go back to the time period where his master died. Ufotables probably gonna write Mikazuki like he still has some attachment to Yoshiteru even though he shows no sign of it in any adaptation or even the game but I think it'd be interesting if they take that route for him. I wonder if Honebami will be able to offer comfort to him though he cant remember anything.

The official synopsis also says the anime takes place in the Bakamatsu era and yet they were sent back once their missions failed and we're moving on to a new team in a new era ( Eiroku ) that has nothing to do with Unit 2. Like I said in my wall of text, the synopsis is likely going to change once the entirety of Unit 1 is revealed and going on their mission. If unit 2 were the main characters of the anime for the WHOLE anime there wouldn't be unit 1 going on their mission. It would be unit 2 going on ALL of their missions in the Bakamatsu period instead of a whole new group of characters taking the wheel. You don't put main characters off to the side while another group of characters does some work that's not how it works. Theyre called MAIN CHARACTERS for a reason. Not main characters until some stuff happens and inconvieniences them. Main characters are reoccuring and are almost always used in every scenario they can possibly be in but ufotable made it obvious that that's not going to be the case for Unit 2 because they're not the main characters the entire anime. They were the main characters for the Bakamatsu arc. Official Synopsis' can change depending on what happens in an anime or if an anime takes a certain turn which this anime is hinted at doing.

You can't really tell me that Unit 2 are the main characters of the entire series when Unit 1 was never even mentioned in the synopsis, Mikazuki wasnt mentioned in the synopsis despite being a main point in the series as said by Ufotable themselves and the fact that they're going to an era that's not the Bakamatsu era with a different team despite what the synopsis said.

I'd also like to correct you. Mikazuki had been a key visual/promoted for months, promoted as a main character in the anime months before Izuminokami and his team was even announced ( Ufotable even said on their twitter that mikazuki was the key visual FIRST in one of their most recent katsugeki posts ). He has plenty of Katsugeki Merch as well. I reblogged them all on my twitter whenever I saw them. He also has MORE THAN ONE keychain that he had gotten alongside Unit 2, a poster based on his promotional image and and a wall scroll with his soon to be added to the site profile image. He also had a dessert dish featured in the Ufotable cafe, an enormous puzzle with his promotional image on it among other things ( including prize stuff they have for him in the Ufotable cafe ). I'm a big Mikazuki fan and have been keeping up with Katsugeki stuff for months in anticipation of the Anime. I know what I'm talking about.

I believe once all members of Unit 1 appear they'll update everything.

I feel like Honebami will get a lot of focus with Mikazuki because they were both Ashikaga and there's no reason not to. I hope ufotable expands on their relationship and that Honebami can act as a crutch for Mikazuki who will likely have a bad time having to go back to the time period where his master died.

Honestly, I'd like to see more of what's inside Mikazuki's head. He's so... distant, in Hanamaru, and that plus the whole jiji thing, the effect is actually a little creepy. (....that and when I hear his voice, I just think of his character in StarMyu, who's the really OTT French guy. I love him though <3 )

I think Mikazuki is too old to care. He's been alive for over 1000 years and has seen the many horrors of the world, witnessed his masters death up close, experienced the loss of many of his friends and even one of his friends doesn't even remember who he is ( keeping in line with his character from the game and anthologies ). I think I'd be emotionally distant after all that time too. He's just a chill old grandpa. What's creepy about his grandpa demeanor BTW? Also YEES THE IDOL NENDOROIDS I can't wait until they're released.

Also the voice Kousuke Toriumi uses for the character in Starmyu fits Mikazuki better in my opinion because Mikazuki is supposed to sound like an old man lol

they also announced nendos for Nikkari, Kasen, Juzumaru and Uguismaru

I think they got figures coming out for Kasen, Ima, Juzu and Nikkari too.

from the wiki. I mean, maybe I read this wrong?



As for Jiji, Don't get me wrong...I'm actually glad he's getting a chance to shine at least for one episode apparently. Also, I"m glad he's on promo stuff, because other than the announcement poster, ufotable seems to be like 'WHO?" on promo for this, despite the fact that Jiji's basically the mascot for this game.

Also, I'm quite looking forward to seeing Oodenta and the Genjis in action...considering that they haven't made their anime debut yet.

I don't understand what you're trying to prove with me. Don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to argue with you so sorry if I'm coming ff that way. But I've already said that I know what the synopsis said and told you why the synopsis is irrelevant now considering that the plot progression is moving on from Unit 2 and onto another Unit in another era that a period that's not listed in the synopsis with characters that aren't listed in the synopsis as well. I also said that the synopsis can change to match the new mission since having that same synopsis won't fit what is going to happen next but you seem to have disregarded all of what I said and are acting as if I haven't been reading the same things as you despite me telling you I've been keeping up with Katsugeki stuff for months.

Also , I can't say Ufotable is doing that. They introduced Mikazuki in episode 5, establishing that he's an important character. In Anime Japan, they'd promoted him rather than Izuminokami with new art for him as well. You're acting like they're disregarding his entire character when they aren't.

Honestly it really just feels like you're dismissing every point I'm making in favor of your own despite me providing facts to back my points and I'd rather not discuss this with you any further if that's what you're going to continue to do.

It depends! Its good for action ( though from the beginning there unfortunately isnt too much at first ) but if you don't know much about the source material it might be a bit confusing at times. A quick Google search can fix that though. The pacing for the first few episodes is a bit slow as well but ifyou can make it through that it gets more.. Interesting depending on your tastes. Or more confusing. I'm sure it depends on the viewer. From my personal standpoint the show is pretty average thus far in terms of story and writing quality if not a little wonky at times but your viewer experience might be different. I recommend you check it out if you're interested.

I don't think Yuzuriha sounds old, I think he sounds... well, he sounds as old as he looks, which, for that whole group, is closer to 30 than 18, but that's a different issue ^_^; With Mikazuki - and I'm just going off of Hanamaru here, I've played the game a little but not nearly enough to get him - in Hanamaru, I guess it's how he speaks more slowly, and he has a certain intonation that sounds like he's reciting some proverb, rather than being involved in a conversation. It's also the way the writers of Hanamaru put him into the story, which is - everyone's all in awe of him; and somewhat intimidated, but then he just awes them some more... and then in the end, when they're all wondering what happened with Yamatonokami, he just... shows up and ~says foreboding things~ and like... he's not really a character in that, he's just sort of there. And it felt like it didn't go, with how great most of the other characters were in that show. But maybe in this one, they'll give him more to do.

Mikazuki is the character that's supposed to be old and wise. But also quite eccentric. He comes from the Heian era, a time stereotyped as beautiful noblemen crying and writing poetry so that might be why he speaks the way he does. I think Hanamaru suited his character quite well because he had time to sit around and be at peace with everything. He likes peaceful things and doing things at his own pace so the slice of life really does it for him. As for being in awe of him, he's one of the Five GREATEST Swords Of Japan which is why everyone ( except Yamatonokami who just saw him as an old man ) was like " whoooa its the Tenka Goken ". He's a very important sword so I believe their reactions were warranted ( not talking out of bias BTW its just historical facts ).

Also in Hanamaru in the episode you're referring to, Mikazuki was technically the only one back at the citadel who had the slightest inkling of what was happening hence why he said the things he did. It was a very serious happening that could have affected everyone in the Citadel had it ended badly so I think he was more than just there and that his saying foreboding things had more to do with the plot of that episode than you're implying it did but I guess we see it differently. Not a lot of characters in Hanamaru had a lot to do though since most of them were pushed off to the background given how large the cast is but Mikazuki technically had more to do than some of the characters. I do feel like Hanamaru didn't use him as a character to his full potential so I also hope that Katsugeki steps up on that. I did enjoy Hanamaru's depiction of him though but I respect if you weren't too fond of him, of course! Different strokes for different folks as always.

Also in Hanamaru in the episode you're referring to, Mikazuki was technically the only one back at the citadel who had the slightest inkling of what was happening hence why he said the things he did. It was a very serious happening that could have affected everyone in the Citadel had it ended badly so I think he was more than just there and that his saying foreboding things had more to do with the plot of that episode than you're implying it did but I guess we see it differently. Not a lot of characters in Hanamaru had a lot to do though since most of them were pushed off to the background given how large the cast is but Mikazuki technically had more to do than some of the characters. I do feel like Hanamaru didn't use him as a character to his full potential so I also hope that Katsugeki steps up on that. I did enjoy Hanamaru's depiction of him though but I respect if you weren't too fond of him, of course! Different strokes for different folks as always.


I'm not talking about that kind of making sense, I'm talking about how it felt... it didn't feel like he was connecting with them, the same way the others connect with each other. All of what you said is true, and he is like a grandpa... but I felt like half the time, they acknowledged that it was like a bunch of teens/20-somethings and one grandpa, and half the time they expected you to not notice he stood out that way... It's like they wanted to make hm stand out like that, but they didn't really commit to making him different and exploring that. Maybe season 2 will.

Episode 6

Those boys suffered a crushing defeat, but if there is any consolation the change in history hasn't made a big impact that they thought it would, and that Tonbokiri is still alive after it looked like he was left for dead. Even if he is still hanging, Tonbokiri is in a coma and is going to be out of action for quite awhile. Pretty much, it's all about getting over their failure of the previous mission while getting refocused for the next.
