I liked the first series a lot so, this pleases me for sure.

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

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


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.
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.

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.

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.

I presonally loved it and am excited that it is getting a movie and no I am not a fujoshi. I just really hope it's not a recap.

Sep 24, 7:28 AM by Oona_Shea

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.

It's great to see this franchise being more successful

One of the worst Ufotable shows in the last 10 years


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...


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.

Racap?

Whatever; I'll watch.

Yeah even worse than Zestiria, I barely even managed to stay awake on the first episode and Fate/Stay Night hey Zero was pretty good :/

Fate, Zesteria and God Eater are good in my opinion

didn't expect this at all, will it be new content or just a recap?

Sep 23, 4:30 PM by toblyvikku

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.
