This is... interesting. Wasn't expecting this at all.
Help the industry and buy Blu-rays and DVD's.
Noragami is the best anime ever.

Bruh...those compilation shots made me think that this show was going to get a 2nd Season but the movie's fine, I guess.

Maybe now it will be better...the pace and the storyline of the TV anime is kinda messy and complicated, so an improvement could work miracles.

My suggestion of watching this series is to wait to watch for this movie instead of watching lengthy 13 episode.

It's a good time to be a Tourabu fan. Hanamaru gets a 2nd season next January and now this. I'm interested in seeing how Ufotable can handle a movie production, because the Katsugeki TV anime was lackluster in many ways.

Even worse than their Zestiria and Fate shows? And to think that there are still people out there that hold the studio in high regard...

Fate, Zesteria and God Eater are good in my opinion

I am not a fujoshi and I watch this. Stop saying this a fujoshi show. Don't lump all fans with fujoshi.

This is why many fans didn't want Touken Ranbu to get an anime. The plot for the anime was written entirely by Ufotable's writers and it was all over the place, making the character OCC and ignoring game mechanics. Well, the action scenes were pretty I guess.

Lol, just because you watch it and you're not a fujoshi, doesn't mean this isn't a fujoshi show, It's absolutely a fujoshi show.

Why is it a fujoshi show? If there is any shonen ai in it, you would see me running away.

I had mixed thoughts on Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu so not sure how I feel about this getting a movie.

Really hoping ufotable make Tales of Berseria TV anime in the future.

Well i'm not an expert, but shonen ai and fujoshi are two different things. You can have fujoshi without shonen ai.

Literally every single character in the game/anime is a reeeallly pretty, feminine looking dude that are quite obviously designed that way for fujoshis. And if they're not feminine, then they're ridiculously buff, shirtless guys. Again for fujoshis.

I'm not saying you're a fujoshi or that you have to be one to enjoy the anime, but it was CLEARLY created with girls and fujoshis in mind as their target audience.

Then just say that this is for girls like in the game website, fujoshi are girls too. This is just an equivalent of KanColle, and not everyone like KanColle are into Yuri. The fans of this franchise can be separate to different categories: fujoshi, otome fans, and other types of fan who play/watch this for fun or for the historical aspect.
Sorry for being aggressive but I had bad experiences with fujoshi.

Fujoshi means "a female fan of BL" (BL=boys love), while shounen-ai is a Western term for BL. (In Japan they don't even use that word, but instead call boyxboy stuff BL, fumuke/geicomi etc.) Fujoshi can be fans of non-homo series too if they enjoy shipping the male characters together.

And Touken Ranbu is not a BL franchise, though it's understandable that many consider it fujobait due to the anime. The game is not aimed at fujoshi or yumejoshi (fans of self-insert reverse harems) specifically, but just "for girls". Some swords have closer relations to other swords and tend to be fujo favorites, while other swords are very into the player like a traditional otome game character.

This might work better than the TV series. That one felt like a drag at times.
