It was revealed at AnimeJapan 2016 that the online collectible card game Touken Ranbu will be receiving a TV anime adaptation in 2017 by animation studio ufotable.

Touken Ranbu, which began service in January 2015, is developed by visual novel developer Nitroplus and e-commerce company DMM Games. The game was originally built for a capacity of 500,000 users, but that limit was quickly reached, prompting the opening of a second server two months later. A mobile application version of the game was launched on March 1 and has been downloaded more than 1 million times as of March 16.

Players assume the role of a Saniwa sage who travels into the past to defeat evil forces that are trying to change the course of history. As a sage, the player has the ability to breathe life into inanimate objects, including famous historical swords.

At long last \o/ Hopefully it won't be utter trash. Dmmd and Kancolle had, imo, disappointing adaptations so hopefully Torabu's will be at least sorta good. Not expecting much, but still pretty excited tbh

GOOD
Now it's official

Touken Ranbu actually has backstories for the different families and groups of swords, so I'm curious to see what they will create with this Anime.

The seiyuu are already known knowledge but if anyone's curious: http://touken-ranbu.wikia.com/wiki/Official_Voice_Actors

I can't wait!

This was long overdue...however the choice of studio is a nice surprise for me.

Looking forward to seeing Nakigitsune in animated form, there's no doubt he'll be a fan favorite around here.

I wonder if Ufotable still plans to make any other Fate related series next year at this rate. They got at least 3 projects now. And yeah, it was inevitable that this would get an anime someday. Good for the fans.

I'm pretty sure they'll keep the seiyuu.

It won't be like Kancolle because they literally had no backstories or source material plot to use in the Anime but Touken actually has a lot of historical stuff to work with already.

Kancolle was victimized by Diomedea, Touken Ranbu is now the next victim by Ufotable.

I feel sorry to Touken Ranbu fans.

You should replace "online card game" to "online web browser game" as this isn't really a card game at all..
more like collectible sword game

All I know about this is that several of the character designs are nice and that there's a lot of R-18 entires on Pixiv of it.

In other words, sign me the fuck up.

Could be worse could be Fate/Grand Order anime. But knowing how popular F/GO is sadly its a possibility.

FREAKING FINALLY! I was wondering what took them this long to make an announcement.

Ufotable is a great studio but the God Eater thing still hasn't left my mind. Still, the Fate series looks awesome. Let's hope the staff is good.

P.S All you people complaining about Ufotable doing girly stuff/not Fate anime, stop being so so selfish.

1. Girls deserve anime aimed at them too, just because is aimed at girls does not make it 'trash'.
2. Fate will always get more anime.

I fully expect them or A1 to do that since they are all about dat Aniplex money right now.

Ufo has not produced a single good thing since fate zero and knk.

And now they are working on THREE awful game(one of which is for kids, the other is the worst tales game and the third - a mobile/web based fujoshi bait) adaptations.
