God damn it this makes me feel too excited about the series, especially with the announcement of the character designers selection of course. :3

Yep there's gonna be a lot of them. Fortunately compared to Hanamaru this will have more so a story (the game itself from what I've played doesn't have a story itself to begin with so it will be interesting how they will play this out, Hanamaru worked for what its worth though).

I'm pretty much shocked at the different designers since from what I got from a friend of mine who focuses on sakuga said that the character designers are all female + the fact that this isn't behind Bandai Scamco (I will call them that from now on) they won't have much issue with it. Fortunately.

It's based on the online and android/Ios app Touken Ranbu Online, it's only in japanese but you might want to check it out~! ^W^

Also an alternate version in the form of Touken Ranbu Hanamaru exists, with the same characters but it's more of a slice of life, cute boys doing cute things, with a some action sprinkled in here and there, while Katsugeki looks much more serious and dark, i can't wait for it too! :D

Yeah, i actually liked Hanamaru but that's because i was already very attached to the characters since i played the game beforehand, i do have high hopes for Katsugeki but at the same time i'm afraid of anyone diying(swords breaking)! :(

I thought Hanamaru was good for what it was doing. Not anything spectacular but I think it was good for those that likes the games already. Basically that series is for those that already got into with the characters and wants to see them animated.

This will focus on a more serious tone and with an actual story from what I can gather (which the game doesn't have a story to begin with from what I recall, note I played the Japanese version so I might be wrong on this regard), so Ufo can be able to just do what they can with it and maybe expand it.

Different character designers? This might end up being a cool thing or just look messy.

The character designers are female in-house animators, so it costs nothing more for ufotable.

So thankful that they went with a boy, instead of a dumb/naive/girly otome heroine. Even though I would have preferred a mature guy.
I can already imagine him with a voice like Oz from Pandora Hearts. XD I think this is also the best option when they consider a character who is more gender-neutral/androgynous for both the male and female fans of Touken Ranbu to relate to.
