    great animation ...but something's missing
    the animation is truly beautiful but that's about it couldn't make it pas 3rd episode to me personally this anime is really boring , easily predictable i will give it two stars because of how well the animation is made however wouldn't recommend this anime to someone who gets bored easily and loves tension in an anime.. there are people saying that if we played the game we would understand the ...

    If you play the game...
    I love this anime mainly because I've been playing this game for about a year. If you've played the game you'd love both of the animes. Only anime watchers... well that depends what you're into. If you're a guy who's not into hot anime boys fighting then I don't recommend it. The game itself does not have much of a plot so creating one from scratch was difficult according to the producer. The ...

    Touken Ranbu: Epicness after 1
    The animation-gasm only produced by studio Ufotable will smack you right where it counts in the first episode, which is all the series can be judged by at this time. Will this series fall short of the mark like other Ufotable game adaptations (here's lookin at you Tales of Zestria). Have they learned from their mistakes when it comes to world building and character development resulting in a well ...

    Awkward Requirements
    This is the conversation that tells you it's a bad series:
    "Aww man you had to have played the game, which most people haven't, and then you will LOVE this series!"
    "So what if naw?"
    "Oh then naw. It's definitely not good enough to hold up solo."

    The Fujoshi Angst-fest
    I thought the animation was good at first, and I really liked how the characters seemed to be more in-depth than the Hanamaru series... but it was just a cascade of angst for the characters with no sort of resolution or anything in sight. Just a show about pretty boys being emo about themselves an each other.

    History Lovers Gallor!
    Have not played the game so basing this solely on the anime. I loved this! The animation is beautiful, the characters are all likeable, and the storyline is interesting.
    Yes, there are some holes, like in the story itself, but it's a very likeable anime.
    PLUS if you love Japanese history of swords and such this will get you all giddy!
    I sure was every time they introduced a new character ...

    Probably the best anime of it's season
    I would like to state : No, I did not play the game before watching the anime. But if you pay attention to all of the little plot clues the anime slowly feeds you, I don't really see a necessity to do so.
    The animation was the first thing to catch my eye - it's spot on stunning. The art is detailed and colored beautifully, and there are very few scenes that appear rushed and poorly made. If ...

    Sword Boys Save History
    I never played the game, but I really enjoyed this show. It's not going to land with everyone, especially those who require eechi tropes/ little sisters/ fanservice crap in their anime. Feels like it was made for fans of old samurai cinema, so if you need lots of yelling and hijinks this isn't where you should be. Touken Ranbu is about great art, great animation and men wrestling with the ...

  • I was on the fence in the beginning
    I can be a bit of a purist when it comes to samurai anime, so I was curious but also nervous about this one at first. I absolutely loved it though, and I thought the concept of using famous swords as characters to be an interesting choice. I also thought that the voice cast did a very good job. Now I just have to look into the game when I get a chance...

  • Watched Solely for the Visuals
    I will admit upfront that I've never played the mobile game.
    That being said, I learned quite a bit about the game from the recent years I lived in Japan. The hype around the game (and the aesthetically pleasing character designs) led me to watch the anime.
    The animation quality is undeniably high. Much to my disappointment, however, the plot was not up to par with the visuals. The plot moves ...
