I'm all out of small bara swords.
>>3309709Don't worry, I never run out of best sword
>>3309786/sword/ is nice place, do not bully. /out/
>>3309795I need more pictures like this
Can someone post their best Mikazukis pls
>>3309891All I got.
>>3309865I got you bro.
>>3309897This is too much visual information to take in.
>>3309945How about now?
This thread is starting on an incredibly faggy route. Post birds.
>>3310217When in doubt, birds.
What's the word?
Bird's the word!
New goodsmile product that isn't an april fool's joke and is totally real.
>>3310342Yeah but can I get a mochi in this size?
>>3310342that's a smol hand
>>3310450Nice, now they're even more insect-like.
>>3310473If I see one running around the house I'll step on it.
>spooky palace 2: electric boogaloo will be on a full page newspaper ad alongside the official twitter announcement tomorrow>might revolve around sakamoto ryoma or tosa in general
>>3310513Oh boy. I'm not ready. Will we get a new sword?Also, I'm laughing at 4chan's April's Fool.
>>3310513>doggo's big moment is an April fools jokeI'll cut someone if this happens
>>3310520Don't worry, they have always ignored April's Fools.
>>3310450He like the crescent moon! He like it croissant!!
>>3310523He sure likes french food. First baguette, now croissant.
>>3310514Last year was more fun, /peep/ pride worldwide.
>>3310524guess you could say he's a faguette :^)
>I'm the only one with liked posts in /sword/ right now
This rare Sengo only appears once every 50 threads. Good fortune and luck will come to you but only if you like the rare Sengo.
>>3310555I need good fortune and luck!
>>3310555Wish there was a dislike button as well.
>>3310557I thought about it for a whole minute and there's not a post in /sword/ I'd ever dislike, even "master1200" ones.Your fortune: Excellent Luck

>Special Investigation in Bunkyuu-era Tosaspooky palace 2: electric boogaloo set in tosa confirmed and if they'll follow the same shit they did with chougi, new sword is very likely

>>3310798>Board merger is still the best one.All I remember is people on /a/ constantly making threads to see which country had the best taste in waifus/husbandos.

Time to grind 10,000 beads.
>>3310997This would be hilarious.
>it's a rainy citadel Tuesday
>>3309598who the fuck is this shit?
>>3311048A rainy citadel is the best citadel.
>>3311048What do swords do on rainy days? Their world is already small enough, and now rain forces them to stay inside the citadel building. Rainy tabletop games afternoon?
>>3310975>Nansen can stop wearing the Konnosuke costumeGood thing too, it'll get hot in there soon.>ferns and cherriesOoh. Fanart incoming.>>3311085Tantou getting raincoats and wellies, going out to explore the woods while it sounds and smells different!
>>3311085I like to imagine my citadel has a library where swords can read and we can order new books if they want any. Plus, it's the future, there's probably some fun tech they can play with.
>>3311085>vidya tournament for the younger swords>shogi or go for the oldtimers>uno
I want Jurakutei 2 already. I don't feel like grinding other events right now.
>>3311208I want my kiwame to go faster so I can kiwame more dudes and not feel bad about them all being level 34. I don't feel like I'm progressing.
>>3311210I get that they were trying to give long-term players more to do, but the amount of exp that it takes for kiwame to level up is ungodly. It's frustrating.
little boy smithing campaign for one week only
you're in luck kiwame grinders
>>3311249It's so slow!
>>3311373They really need to up the EXP gains because grinding for this shit is tedious.
>>3311403>tumblr filename>bjdworst combo
>haven't had any swords that need refining in eons>grind and smith>get flooded with waki>oh I'll need these for Nansen when he arrives, I'll hold onto->too many waki>Horikawa swarming every inch of citadelFuck. I should kiwame someone else just to have somewhere to use them but kiwameing an uchi is basically declaring them a deadweight.
>>3311441Today I learnt: swords quickly change into their battle outfits to see others off on kiwame journeys then change back when they've left.
>>3311447Sendoff parties require everyone to be in their holiday best because it's less dramatic when you bid someone farewell in a tracksuit or plain shirt and pants.
>>3311461Kiwame Ishikiri looks like he's going to punt them if they don't run fast enough though. I mean, yeah, they'll probably outrun him and his horse, but still.
>>3311464>ishi turns into anime gunnery sergeant hartman>"Tonight, you pukes will sleep with your weapons. You will give your weapon a girl's name because this is the only pussy you people are going to get. Your days of finger-banging ol' Mary-Jane Rottencrotch through her pretty pink panties are over!

Hanamaru manga is over.
>>3311583Kill me already.
>>3311584It ended with Kiyomitsu and Yasu holding hands.
>>3311585Give me a moment to fap and then kill me already.
>>3311583I wish they'd make something serious like Katsugeki again but about other eras. At least we get stageplays I guess, but I want some actual 2d content.
>>3311606Spooky scary Shizuka sends shivers down my spine.
>>3311613It's a very impressive GK though. There's a ton of things about Shizuka's design and that pose that are rather 3D-unfriendly. Also, Shizukachan is good and cute.
>>3311606I need to run my finger over him.
>>3311606I fucking love Shizuka
>>3311583What are the chances they're going to adapt s2 to the manga as well? It didn't even occur to me that they wouldn't adapt it until just now, I was actually looking forward to S2E2.
>>3311585>hanamaru manga gives you what you always wanted>don't care because the author sucks, art is ugly, and it's a bad adaptation overallI wish it would've gotten a good author like the Katsugeki manga.
>>3311585and then kashuu went on to pound yasusada's butt, r-right?
>>3311649I think the art is cute.
>>3311692His sword has gotten heavier afterall.
>>3311714Cute! They look like very good, housetrained boys.
>>3311736He refuses to come home, even during his campaign.
>>3311782My Legos have better looking butts than this.
>>3310755Painted prototype fucking when. I don't want to wait until wonfes.
>>3311857I'm sure it will happen sooner than next WonFes.
>>3311905Can't wait to ruin Mucchan's plans to see the world by locking him in a display case.
>move aside peasants, the degenerates are passing through
>>3312087This pic makes me wonder if swords take part in local festivities. According to Hanamaru there was a village near the citadel, you can see it when they go shopping.
>>3312115It's highly doubtful that the citadel has a no outside contact rule just as long as nobody actually gets romantically involved with outsiders.
>>3312156>as long as nobody actually gets romantically involved with outsidersimagine having to pay sword child support in koban
More proof that Tonbokiri has natural stripping instincts that he can't suppress if drunk.
>>3312166The fuck are Juzu and Nikkari doing?
>>3312166This image is full of gold.
>>3312167Complimenting each other.
>>3312166Tomoe: Master, my body is hot, whatever shall I do?What indeed!
>open PvP>first three teams are all level 61 kiwame Yagen captainsWhat the fuck, how'd they converge on me like this? I'm just celebrating getting my kiwame to 40.
Is /sword/ having a good weekend? We haven't talked much lately.
>>3312254My weekend is pretty shitty so far.Is Yagen putting his drink on Midare's ass?
>>3312254What is Shinano saying?
>>3312259>I have one of Aruji's wrestling DVD, want to watch it with me?
>>3312259>Wanna know who has the biggest dick in here?
>>3312262That's obviously Yagen.
>>3312254It's been a good weekend.
Sorry for the late update, real life happened. I also had to delete the previous art album because some posts wouldn't display or there were a load of duplicates and it just got too confusing to sort everything out.https://imgur.com/a/1X8kvBbhttps://imgur.com/a/BreQf75
>>3312392So much greatness.Which manga was the tall Nikkari from again?
>>3312392I love /sword/ a whole lot.
>>3311583The only things left are the anthologies and the adaptations of the plays and the live actioin movie.A second Katsugeki season is unlikely if UfoTable get thrown under the bus if the tax evasion is true.>>3311736>>3311769Blame the drop rates of the shitty smithing, not Kenshin.He's doing his best to be selfless like an adult, unlike the manchildren programmers which didn't bother to tweak the 30m swords' rates enough to not getting the usual two.
>>3312254no weekend is complete without tid
I still miss Hanamaru Sundays.>>3312435I had a bit of hope that after the Katsugeki movie they'd tease an upcoming second season. Now not even the long announced movie seems possible anymore. What are the chances that we might get a new anime project by a different studio? There are just so many things from this franchise that I'd still like to see in an anime.
>>3312441An adaptation way more serious in tone than katsugeki that doesn't focus on the overly popular swords and doesn't shy away from realistically portraying the horrors of war and what it does to a man will forever be my pipe dream sword animu.
I don't know about horrors of war, but I'd love to see a portrayal showing off the killer side of the swords
>>3312479All of this but also with explicit gay sex.
>gun dudes tapping out after only just a yearSwords cannot be stopped.
>>3312441this franchise is a merch machine, they need more anime
>>3312693Which dudes are you referring to? A Girls Frontline knockoff?
>>3312720Yes, it's called Senjuushi. It's funny, people here would call it a TKRB ripoff.
>>3312721not wonder, the designs were boring and the anime the worst Quality
>>3312721Speaking of ripoff, I'm surprised the chinks haven't done their own version of swords like what they did with azur lane for boats.
>>3312723Maybe because TKRB has a chinese server? I don't know if Kancolle had one.
>>3312723AL was made by a bunch of chinchong boat autists who wanted other nations botes other than grorious nippon, I doubt there is a similar level of sword devotion there.
>>3312693>monstera deliciosa crotchSubtle.
>>3312693 nothing going to surpass Touken ranbu it has the best male designs, fuck off the rest of antrophormized games
>>3312725>kantai collection factors in a boat's history when designing their outfits>azur lane says fuck it and makes all the boats either youkai, titty monsters, youkai titty monsters or I can't believe we can still get away with this design little girlsImagine if a chink sword game ever gets made and follows the latter's design philosophy.
>>3312733It'd probably be more like everyone looks same but their outfits are so over the top they make Shinano's kiwame look tasteful by comparison. Like taiwanese puppets times 50.
>get a bunch of sword rubber straps in the mail>some of them are much bigger than expected Neat. Any other strapfags here? I'm eager for more of Shizuka to appear.
>>3312693Not surprising when their anime budget was two cans of beans and a smudged I-O-U. What did surprise me was the amount of merch they pumped out before it finished, and then again a month or two after. It was a vast quantity and I remember bitching how some Kentucky asshole had more official merch than my favourite sword within weeks of existing.>>3312733>this Saxon sword is now the man we'll refer to as Titty Merlin, his wizard robes will forever hang open impractically but his stats are great
>>3312732Indeed. It may have some lukewarm design, but there are hardly any stinkers yet.Also, it has some variety in regard of different age of male development and different clothing, a sight of the developers knowing what the shit they wanted.>>3312725I don't think the chinese have the same level of religious obession like the japanese, so adding blades from other countries wouldn't be that different than the token foreigner in a japanese tv serial
I got a Kenshin! It only took 40+ smithings! To be honest I got a bunch of Hasebe and it was worth that because his ranbu level is so low.
>>3312693I feel bad for them, they really didn't stand a chance. But I remember watching the first two episodes back when the anime aired and the whole thing felt incredibly boring and devoid of life. Touken Ranbu is the only mobage I've ever followed so I don't know much about how they work, but apparently the stars alligned for us because I would have never expected this franchise to come this far.
>>3312743I'm more of a keychainfag myself.>>3312769Congrats anon.
>>3312916Rubber straps are keychains.
>>3312920Oh oops. Well then yeah, I got a bunch too which is kinda funny because I don't actively seek them out, all of them have been given to me by a friend after they found out I like swords.

>>3312998Angel boi is cute but the rest look too predictable. The whole Excalibur thing is so overdone at this point, they'd have to dig up some history across all of Europe and bring different myths and stories if they wanted to be exciting. I wonder how would a meeting of nip swords and euro swords be like.
That's gorgeous but Saniwa should stop changing their garden so often.
>>3313203>tfw finally have enough budget to have a river installed
>>3313203>Going on a date with your beloved swordYes please.

>>3313435If swords had variants and not just the same artwork for all eternity (kiwame doesn't count, I mean like holiday and summer limiteds), you better believe I would whale for jpegs of my swordbando.
Which event is your favorite, /sword/? As for me, I like the current one the most
>>3313466Current one for sure. I also really liked Jurakutei but it was mostly for the new character content.
>>3313440Summer outfit variants would be great, I definitely want to see my swords walking around the citadel with their internal affairs clothes drenched in sweat.
>>3313466RB because with the right setup you pretty much don't even need to look at the screen while doing the event.
>>3313371Having Nene wear this much clothing is a crime against humanity.
People. The Toumyu website will go under maintenance the 16th and they'll announce the new formation for the new Toumyu.https://twitter.com/musical_touken/status/1115902368078606343
>>3313650The maintenance will end at 6PM Japan time.
>>3313650inb4 somebody gets future endeavored
>>3313650Fingers crossed for Shizuka-chan.
>>3309598Does anyone know where the Atsukashiyama version with the announcements for SRS and Bakamatsu is?
>>3312479I did like episodes 1 through 8 for doing something like that. I wish they explored that more before going back into Shinsengumi wank.
Hello where are the birds
>>3313710Always in our hearts.
>>3313724That's a sinister looking bird.
Are there good quality scans of the second Kenran Zuroku floating around anywhere?
>>3313751There were so many anons volunteering to scan, I just didn't end up doing it. If everyone ended up getting too busy and the scans still don't exist, I can get to it later this week.
>>3313834NTA but thanks a bunch.
First time playing this event, I dislike it. Ending every round with one spare move cos fuck you the next node isn't guaranteed to save you, boss node always giving one key when you needed two to make another five, getting into warehouse three already with hundreds of chests to go and having to wait so I don't throw away koban on essentially gambling chips. I want to open everything, give me the things! I don't know what patience is when there's shiny fucking boxes right there damn it, don't let me look when I don't have keys.
>>3313918Seeing the treasure chests feels so much more motivating to me personally. They're right there, I can get them if I just play long enough.
>man this doujin is fucking amazi->husbando lights a cigaretteDropped.
>>3314028Everytime. I can deal with most of their out of character bullshit, but this is 2dumb4me.
>>3314028I'm glad that others understand this feeling.
>being this shocked that japanese men are depicting smoking
>>3314096No one is shocked, just turned off.
>>3314028What doujin and which sword? I can definitely see some swords smoking but if someone like Midare lights one it would be absurd at best
I'm in the final warehouse, throwing out archers. Show me the cat, boxes. Show. Me.>>3313988Chougi making the universal pose of 'fuck why is this cat climbing on my lap, get it off'.
>>3313918The best way to play this event is to not rush it because before you even realize, you'll have a bunch of keys and no chests to open. You haven't experienced true hell until you have over 500 surplus keys.
>>3314223I can't even imagine amassing so many keys. There's hundreds of boxes to go, I'm no where close to finishing any of the storehouses. Even once I'm done with them, those unarmed kunai give great EXP so I'll be happy to use extra event passes to level up my kiwame.
WHERE TO START LEFT OR RIGHT
>>3314403Left, then straight, then loop to the left if you chance on more moves.
>tfw Hanamaru-specific merch is still coming out >and your swordfu wasn't in Hanamaru >and other non-Hanamaru merch lines died off before they got to your swordfu tooThis is buyfag hell
Just had a round with nothing but battles and not one gave me an extra move, and yet I just had to go one node away from the end. Fuck.
>>3314438I found fucking plums the first box I open after that.
>>3314448The next pass, again nothing but battles, no extra moves, and a grand total of four keys. Kuyashii. This whole time it kept repeatedly claiming my connection was lost too but every other webpage loads fine, proxy off. What did I do to you, castle?
Is the tanook jealous because he can't be slim and cute?
>>3314450Just DMM being DMM as always.>>3314521Why be slim and cute when you can have a body made of steel and built like a tank?
>>3314521Tanuki is canonically only 4cm taller than Kashuu. He's tiny and plenty cute as is.
So what does /sword/ have planned for the weekend?
>>3314741The only thing I have planned for today is fapping later on, literally. That's how thrilling my weekends are.
>>3314754I just opened the thread after finishing fapping. We should organize shifts.
>>3314741Play with my new cat man.
>>3314741staying at home as usual..

You're in the club and this strong and cool loan shark demands that you pay up. What do you do?
>>3314930Slap his ass and make him cry.
>>3314930My swordbando will protect me.
>>3314930Compliment his abs in Katsugeki and run away while he's busy reminding himself out loud how good he looked indeed.
>>3314930Tell him Santa isn't real.
>>3314763How do you know if it's another anon's turn to fap?
STAY WITH ME
>>3315216Kara-chan is not enjooying this.
>>3315262Glad I wasn't the only one who heard this at the comment.
>>3315322>also listens to 80s nip pop
>>3315368lol, everybody listen to that crap these days.It will come up in your recomendations even if you don't care about itIt's top tier pleb .
>>3315370wow, that ego.
>>3315262No, it's the name of the second song of the live part. An anon posted a rip from insta here but I don't know if it's still up.
>>3315368It's a pretty comfy genre, I'm glad it's getting spotlight again. I want hanamaru S3 to have an 80s inspired ending song please.>>3315370(you)
>>3315470Agreed, it's maximum comfy. I leave it on in the background sometimes while playing even.
>>3315470I want a doom metal ending in S3.
>>3315470I think the ootachi bros duet is pretty close as far as genre goes. It’s my favorite ending song for this reason.
>>3315498>when arujii isn't home
>>3315494>>3315498>tfw you will never sit around with your swords listening to 80s nip pop only for other swords to come in to blast doom metal over it>>3315523Agreed, though I think it's supposed to be more enka if anything.
Just watched Bakumatsu Tenrouden. Holy crap, what a ride. How is it possible that in the span of 2 hours, they did more exposition and character development than in the whole of Katsugeki? Now I'm even more excited to watch the others.
>>3315545I'm glad you enjoyed it. Don't hesitate to give Musubi, and the other musicals a watch.
>>3315545>crying like bitches is considered character developmentI mean I liked it too, but let's not delude ourselves.
>>3315556Do they cry in BT too? I know they do in Musubi.
/sword/, is your boy in toumyu/tousute? if so, how do you feel about his actor?mine is, but his actor is hard to look at times.
>>3315565Yes but I'm worried because he's getting many main roles in prestigious musicals and I'm afraid he'll drop Toumyu.
>>3315565Mine is in Toumyu. I'm fine with his actor, considering that no 3DPD could ever pull him off in looks-department anyway. The actor performs well. Yasusada's actor has a strange face, but it's thanks to his performance and the writing of the music that I like Yasusada. MyuYasu is charming.
>>3315613>when there's dried ketchup in the bottle cap and you squeeze too hard
>>3315469It is. Woooo *moans*https://www.instagram.com/tv/BvbzuJKnnmI/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=14muw8p9qr5ov
>>3315565I've actually written paragraphs about how I feel about all of his actors. I'll spare /sword/ the obsessive details for now and just say I really enjoy them all, especially his first one and I'm overjoyed that he will be making a comeback for the 5th sute. I was very skeptical about seeing 3D actors play him, but once you realize that it's more about the writing and the characters are all the same just in a different format, it's an incredibly enjoyable experience.
>>3315626>*action*Never post again.
>lol>*action*Summer sure came early this year.
>>3315679You're welcome, anon. Always happy to share material with /sword/ since the beginning, but some of you do get bitchy over the tiniest things.What happened to the anon who was going to scan the artbook, by the way?
>>3315687Sorry, things came up but I've been chipping kind of slowly at it when I have time. It'll be done soon.
I really love it when I have one unused move when I reach the boss node. Makes all the careful maneuvering worth it.
>>3315635i haven't touched the stages much, but there have been multiple bamis? do you have pics of each one? i need to get in to them because manbas actor is to die for
>>3315809There are two Bamis in the sutes, and a third Bami for the movie. They all have their pros and cons (though I haven't actually seen the movie yet) but I love them all. In order, Kitagawa Naoya, Mitsuya Ryou, and Sadamoto Fuuma. Sorry for the inconsistency of the types of pics, I just used the first ones I could find.https://files.catbox.moe/aj3j7s.jpghttps://files.catbox.moe/1191e0.jpghttps://files.catbox.moe/6rc6mw.jpgI think Kitagawa nails his mannerisms and voice, but Mitsuya ended up getting a lot of the scenes with the most focus on Bami's character so his performance is really memorable. Like I said, haven't seen the movie, but I think Fuuma has the cutest face and hearing about his experience on the set makes me want to root for him.
>>3315579Myuyasu is charming, but I really was hoping for my swordfu to be cuter. He could be worse, but alas.>>3315815Movie Bami is most certainly the cutest. Mitsuya is kind of cute too, I like his makeup a lot. Definitely going to have to watch the stages now.
>>3315565Tousute; He's perfect and I prefer him over his Hanamaru counterpart. His actor is an actual father, so his supportive role towards Manba felt very genuine.
>>3315817Hope you enjoy them when you get around to watching them. Here's an incredibly cute video of movie Bami too.https://youtu.be/eM2VfTdvOKs>>3315818He was so fucking great. I didn't know he was an actual father, that just makes everything that much better. I loved his performance and Bushi's role in the story so much.
>>3315565It's okay I can just promise to buy myself Hanamaru merch.
>>3315821>Gine is the only spear that hasn't been 2.5D'd yetGenuinely so fucking tragic, I want to see it happen.
>>3315820I really appreciate that they didn't make him a one-off gag character like Hanamaru did. In a way, he feels like a catalyst for Manba's development, since that incident was referred to in the first stage play. I'm so glad he's in the new stage play, and I hope he's just as great in this one and appears a lot. Remember to be kind to your Yamabushi today, everyone.
>>3315818>>3315820>>3315825Yamabushi is best big bro and father figure. TKRB needs more guys like him.
>>3315825>he feels like a catalyst for Manba's development, since that incident was referred to in the first stage play.This so much. Realizing that was what really made me a sutefag, there was a surprisingly amount of planning and foreshadowing for everything. It was also kind of a breath of fresh air to see him being so openly supportive of Manba and not having Manba be full angst mode or yanked around by the plot so much. Their relationship is so sweet, definitely looking forward to him in the new play as well.
>>3315828Sute really did give Kunihiro interaction that both anime adaptations fell flat on (although the Katsugeki manga was better about it). If only Horikawa was in sute too. It was refreshing to see Manba being open, and probably the most happiest/relaxed he's ever been on stage, around Yamabushi. On the flip side, seeing Yamabushi become so serious he actually punches his own brother was also fantastic. Happy Kunihiro life is great and all, but it's nice to see sibling quarrels sometimes.
>>3315833Hori and Manba seemingly forgetting each other's existence in Katsugeki was the biggest sin of all. Sure, GBF tried to rectify that with Manba talking to Kane about it but I don't want to have to dive through supplementary media just so I can see brothers showing that they care about each other, that shit's supposed to be in the main works.And for that matter, Hori in sute when? It feels incredibly lopsided not having him there and his brothers not being in myu. If they can get Mutsu, what's keeping them from bringing Hori in too?
>>3315838>so I can see brothers showing that they care about each other, that shit's supposed to be in the main works.I feel this so hard. Those one or two lines in GBF felt like table scraps or an afterthought. I also felt the same way with Hanamaru S2. Sure, the Kunihiros had a cute little talent show for 4 seconds, but it's fucked up that they never had an ED with each other (when the Toushirous got two, and several other 'family' swords got EDs together), and didn't even interact in an episode entirely about brothers. That was also pretty much the only interaction they had with each other for 12 whole episodes. It's weird to me too that Horikawa isn't in sute, as there have been overlaps with characters between myu/sute. He could have easily filled the role of one of the Toushirous. I think it would be hard to top Aramaki as Manba, though. Maybe that's why Manba isn't in myu.
>>3315847Well, you also had the Kunihiros teaming up in the water gun fight. I would have loved to see even more of them together, but then again there were people back in the anime threads who complained about the Kunihiros getting too much spotlight. Personally I think Aramaki is the best and most symbolic actor in 2.5D, so there's no way a new actor could equal him in the musicals. Seeing Hori in sute would be great, but I also like seeing Yamanbagiri interact with other swords. Not so much with Jiji, but his relationship with Sayo was very sweet. I think Sayo truly helped show the most heartwarming side of the swords he got attached to, be it Yamanbagiri, Ookurikara or Kasen.
>>3315820oh man, oh boy. yeah, he is definitely the cutest of the bamis.
Less than two hours before the end of maintenance. I'm praying for Tsuru.
OTEGINE ANON WAKE UPOTEGINE IS IN TOUMYU
>>3315821>>3315822HOLY FUCKING SHIT
>>3315877>sengo >tsuruSRS this year is gonna be wild.
>>3315877This is great, I was looking forward to have new swords in the musicals as well. Also, this Tsuru looks better than the sute one to me.
Otegine trending higher than Toumyu.https://twitter.com/toukenkouryaku/status/1118087824232730624
>>3315877Oh man, I've been wanting Kotegiri in for a good while now since he was revealed to be into idols; Toumyu's definitely up his alley.>>3315889Its a good day for gine fans, I'm happy for them all.
Where's gineanon? This is like the biggest gine related news in the history of forever so far.
>>3315877This cast is going to be exciting to watch I can feel it.Gou and Tsuru actors are only 20 years old. Huh, wonder if they will blow up in popularity like the genji actors too
>>3315898No idea but they already gained 2000+ followers on their twitter accounts.
>>3315877Wow both Muramasas got to be in another one. As a Sengo lover I just came. Imagine all the stuff he could get up to, esp as the crane is there too.
On jpn twitter, people are happy because Otegine's actors legs are 97cm.
>>3315905He beats Kane-san then.I hope he gets an idol outfit which shows those legs off.
>>3315859I wonder how sute will portray Manba's interactions and relationship with Nansen, especially when you take into account his relationship with Jiji, since it's pretty obvious Nansen is one of the factors that pushes him towards kiwame in the game.>>3315902As soon as Sengo and Tsuru get onstage with old Crazy Eyes himself, the degeneracy is gonna shoot through the roof. SRS 2019 R18 all but confirmed.
>>3315907I need to save up money and go see this live. Wish me luck anons.
>>3315859Ah that's right, I forgot about the watergun fight. I was bothered that once again Yamabushi was separated from his two brothers. Are all three of them forbidden to be in the same place at the same time for too long?Both Manba and Hasebe's actors feel irreplaceable. They're just so on point.I was never a fan of Manba and Mikazuki pandering either, but sute did do a good job of portraying a mentor-mentee relationship. I absolutely love Sayo and Manba's relationship too, as well as Sayo's development. Definitely shed some tears at "Welcome back, Sayo" in Joden. He certainly does have that influence on swords, bringing them together even if they feel animosity towards each other.
>>3315875>>3315891I was hibernate. Also remaking the Gine was bigger news in history ok. There was a time with no Gine. >>3315877>all the shitposting that Gine and Kotegiri rehearse together and Gine should be in myuI'm a sutefag but fuck, they knew. Performing is Gine's secret happiness and now he gets to go on stage! Happy Gine! Embarrassed Gine!The other group poster with his blade pointing down really shows the length of it, and some of the diameter. I hope it influences fanart so there's less thin Gine. >>3315901A good boy. >>3315905They're saying he's 188cm tall and calculating how much isn't leg then comparing to how much Gine isn't blade, and it had never occurred to me his blade could be all leg. I don't appreciate the tweet comparing him to Slenderman though. Gine has never disappeared with a child except for that one Hanamaru episode and
>>3315898Gou's actor was in Tenimyu so he already has a fanbase but Tsuru's actor had onli 1k followers before the announcement. He now has 10k+. It's only his second role though. I hope he'll be good as Tsuru.
You went too far this time, little mochi.
>>3315943Wew lad, the power of cranefags.
I wonder what the plot is going to be about.Matsudaira Nobuyasu's actor is returning and there are two new actors that are twins.
>>3315969Here are the twins: https://twitter.com/TWiN_PARADOX_yk
Trying Pocket was a mistake. I was on my way home with 24 keys after visiting every node on the map, screen tried to turn itself off so I tapped it. Went in the opposite direction with one move left.Picking formations takes two taps, but fucking up only takes the one.

Hello and welcome to another episode of How Many Fucking Battle Nodes Does It Take to Get The Single Move I Need? I'm your host Kirrumi Nao, and today we have a whopping jackpot of eight whole keys all to win.
>>3316225Left one will be cute and memorable and right one will be ugly and forgettable but since they're being released together nip fujos will automatically ship them and said dumb ship will put left one's design to waste, because obviously he'll always be depicted as the bottom. Screencap this swordfags.
>>3316411It's a less stressful experience when you include the necessary intermittent fap breaks.
>>3316411Left looks like an angry/edgy manlet. Right is clearly the superior gentlemen design, shoes confirm.
>>3316432I'm tired of fancy looking ouji wannabes, looking at you Osafunes. An angry manlet dressed in black rags and a System of a Down shirt underneath sounds like a very nice addition to the citadel
>>3316398You have good runs and you have bad runs. We're all at the mercy of the almighty arenji.

Pussy man event report, go!
>>3316513It keeps happening! Every time I don't hug the left wall it seems to go wrong. >>3316671Always, and it was right down at the start so there's no way you'd get enough moves to return once you were half way.>>3316700Pussy man level 45! One storehouse cleared!
>>3316700Not playing. As usual, I'm a shit saniwa.
>>3316700A gang of heavily armed children storms the castle, no witnesses left alive, local authorities at a loss for an explanation.
>>3316700Got insanely lucky and got all the keys within 5 turns each time, just got Nyansen last night and fed him to my first one for ranbu leveling. I've mostly been playing for the exp though, so I'll probably keep going at it lazily until it ends.
>>3316702Just invest your time in swordfaps rather than the game. They are easier to accomplish and feel more rewarding.
>>3316721Is it possible to run out of sword porn to fap to? Asking for a friend.
>>3316778Yes, if you're picky about what swords you fap to.
>>3316778Don't let your friend fap to swords every day.
>>3316778Your imagination is the best source of inspiration anon, and it's limitless. Also get into other swords asides from your favorites.

It's hard to imagine there was a time when we would send threads with over 700 posts to the archive, what did we even talk about back then? Things sure have changed.
>>3316984We can thank the rampant lewdposting of early threads for that.
/sword/ has been so dead lately that I've been looking up other series out of curiosity and boredom and I regret every single moment of it but I'm too deep in to pull out. Send help.
>>3316700I managed to open all the chests and got another dupe for the cat's ranbu levels (which I still find those useless).>>3316225I really hope you don't have to grind the map multiple times for the slight chance to get one of them, unless it is only for the dupes.If you can unlock them just by killing the enemies and compleating the nodes in one run like Chougi was, then good.
>>3316999Pulling out of swords is difficult.
>>3317012Make sure to use sufficient amounts of lube for an easy entrance and exit.
>>3317012You don't even have to, that's the beauty of it.
>>3316999I stopped caring about other series during /sword/'s golden days last year, as that was enough to keep me excited all the time. Now I'm back to watching dumb seasonal anime and reading BL, but it feels like nothing can fulfill me as much as /sword/ did anymore. I hope it gets better because there has to be life beyond this franchise.
>>3316701>decide to stop being a pussy now pussy man is a level 50 pusspuss>go to the right wall>get three empty nodes in a row and leave with four keysLeft wall master race confirmed, sorry I doubted you.>>3316999This makes it sound like you weren't knees deep in three things at once already. Does this mean you don't read WNs/manga while listening to true crime podcasts and playing swords at the same time? Actually, it's more like I use grinding on swords to keep myself from reading /a/ while watching and listening to things. If I like another franchise I just end up imagining them together as a concept, so swords end up with youkai or running a restaurant, or having xianxia adventures with a lot of twirling. Talk shit on Ken for ducking out of adventuring to marry Tanhi but I'm really glad TBF had a spear user to show how those can be ridiculous in motion too.
>>3317016There's something about /sword/ that's so engaging, I can't describe it any better than it's genuinely fun and entertaining talking to anons about Touken Ranbu. Maybe it's the bias influencing my opinion but of all the threads for series that have endured over the years that I've been in, /sword/ has been the one that stuck to me the most.>it feels like nothing can fulfill me as much as /sword/ did anymoreThis is me with every game or show I invest in, but with /sword/'s case the combination of being a historyfag and threads fostering a genuinely comfy community have made it difficult to find the same joy and fulfillment from other franchises.>>3317020>If I like another franchise I just end up imagining them together as a conceptThat really won't slide with the thing I'm currently trying to get into because https://pastebin.com/MfZQNkwP
Hey /sword/, if you were to depict troops in a sword anime, how would you do it? Lately I think about Akita running round corners holding them in his hands like squeaky toys and yelling bang bang.
>>3317035Is that Hasebe?
>>3317042Well, Otegine is fine too.
>>3317032>be tantou>watch a lot of pokemon>try to imitate how ash throws pokeballs>MUSKETEER I CHOOSE YOU!!>dies immediately on impactThey also thought about turning their cap around as they threw the troops but by that point they were already wearing unwieldy kabuto and it just wouldn't work.
>>3317032I always thought they were like those clay/bone figurines in mythology that you throw on the ground and they transform into faceless automatons. If they're actually small retarded chibis shooting niggas up, it's hilarious.
>>3317032I kinda like the way they did it in the game OP where they just... appear. I also like the idea that the troops are just actual shields/weapons and the little guys are just there to show examples of how your sword would look with them equipped, but that's not as fun as having actual little guys. Thinking about it too much just frustrates me though.>>3317046>dies immediately on impactkek
>>3317059>>3317060Maybe it's a bit of all of these. The troops are orbs at the point of creation, but when a sword summons them into use first there's some who just aren't compatible, and then there's a difference in leadership between stats and levels that changes how effective they are. So how the troops appear depends on the sword's ability. Maybe tantou have chibi toy soldiers scuttling about, but a lv99 tachi has full grown men on horses that wisp in and out around him. Or an ootachi is tripping over midgets in fancy hats while waki duck behind faceless stone flingers.
>ishi is slower than molasses because he wears three layers of armor on top of his many layers of clothingAt last I truly see.

Would you introduce easter eggs to your citadel?
>>3317242That sounds delightful actually. Eggs hidden around the huge citadel for the tantou (and others) to find. Kousetsu and Souza encourage Sayo to play along, and praise him for what he finds. As they sit and share the candy at Sayo's insistence, the three of them are happy.
>>3317249I think the Samonji would enjoy painting wooden eggs with flower designs, and some of the swords would get really involved in making fake nests to put chicks and eggs inside. Houchou just wants a chicken.
>>3317242As long as Shinano behaves and Ishi only gets two eggs max.
>>3317278Aw, let fatty live it up on the holidays.
>>3317278He gets a simnel cake and a box of creme eggs.
>>3317020Do you think devs will eventually catch on to the fact that people tend to lean more towards the left side of the map? So far, I've had better luck if I stick left than right.>immediately as I post this I get five moves from one of the right side nodeswew
>>3317299Five moves is even a thing? Damn. The left side has to be purposefully superior, it has a better number of nodes for plotting different paths, while the right side always ends up locking you into too few or too many nodes. I think the idea is if you get enough moves to go both ways you end up facing difficulty somewhere, whereas if you stick to the left you can have some really uneventful five move rounds with very little reward. It balances itself?I've got to get 300 keys before the event ends to finish these store houses so having an easy route isn't going to take away the strain.
