Message from BLUE ENCOUNT's vocalist/guitarist Shunichi Tanabe:


I fell in love with each and every gesture, with each and every personality, and with each and every destiny. The first video we received was a provisional edition before editing. So, there was almost no music. All that existed was the powerful dialogue between the characters and the sound of swords clashing against each other. I fell in love with this film at that point. All the characters are fighting against their own destiny in the way they live. There is nothing tedious about it. I feel that the driving force that enabled me to write the music for this film this time was my feeling of love. With respect for the sword boys' chivalrous spirit, I spun a melody called "fate" so that I would not be defeated. May it reach you.





The first film entitled Touken Ranbu The Movie (The title was changed to Touken Ranbu The Movie - Keishou (Succession) - when the DVD and Blu-ray were released) was directed by Saiji Yakumo (Ankoku Jyoshi) on a screenplay by acclaimed tokusatsu scenario writer Yasuko Kobayashi (Kamen Rider Ryuki/Den-0/000, Ressha Sentai ToQger), and was released in Japan on January 18, 2019.
