Synopsis

The year is 1863 as the tumultuous samurai era is coming to an end, Japan is split between the pro-shogunate and anti-shogunate factions. The fate of the world is threatened as an army of historical revisionists are sent from the future to alter the course of history. In order to bring these forces down and protect the real history, two sword warriors, spirits who are swords brought to life by Saniwa (sage), rush to Edo. The polite and thoughtful Horikawa Kunihiro and the short tempered yet skillful Izuminokami Kanesada, who served the same master, confront the invading army along with a lively gang of other warriors including Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki, Yagen Toushirou, Tombokiri, and Tsurumaru Kuninaga.

As the fate of history lies in these hero's hands, what meets the blade is yet to be uncovered...

"THE UFOTABLE STRUGGLE"

Ever since Unlimited Blade Works was made, their productions just went downhill. Ufotable's modern production/anime works are very poor in Story and character executions. I don't mind their visual style for now because ever since they started as a studio, they made such beautiful aesthetics with the use of good CGI ( propably on the same level as Polygon Pictures imo )

As of now, Katsugeki Touken Ranbu is struggling on pacing, characters, very confusing plot and heck very meh introduction on the pilot episode. People who played Touken Ranbu talking shit like "MEH, YOU DIDN'T PLAY THE GAME OFC, YOU WON'T UNDERSTAND IT", read more

Well I am not done delving into the franchise yet but i'm looking forward to it. I got picked on by someone earlier, calling me egocentric just for saying i understood the story to an extent, trying my best to understand the story based on the information they were able to provide in the first episode. That kind of hurt me but someone was nice enough to pick my side because we were somewhat similar.

That being said, don't worry if you don't get the story in the first episode. From what I have seen, that is quite common. It's quite fast paced and you need read more

I didn't really plan on watching much at all this season nothing really peaked my interest but someone told me about this and I thought I'd give it a go since I have nothing better to do after all bahaha. wish I was kidding

The show is pretty much what I expected was a little confused during the first episode but heaps of swords and some weird shadow harry potter type of things getting cut up so can't really complain if there were any less sword's in this show I think I'd hate it but because obviously I froth over sword fights in the 1800's read more

Time travel is impossible and this so effing boring. Boom! Mind not blown.

Time cops are the worst. They mess up thus you don't exist. Please refrain from altering history. Your efforts will negate your own existence. Duh.

Even with katanas, time cops are lame. Oh my god how many more words will make this review submittable? Yeah, that's an actual word. I write and so I submit work to employers and prospectively. This show looks nice, but is boring and it's premise is futile. Got Dam! More words? Ugh! This show is hardly even worth breathing a sigh over and you want more words read more
