Revised kiwame art when...
>>3493978The quoted tweet in that tweet says that his revised sprites should come early October and in late October they'll implement the function to let us watch swords come back from kiwame training.I assume it'll be next week or so if not Monday. The wait is just agonizing.
Last month it was his implementation anniversaryI'm so happy for him
I still want to see a Kebiishi/Hollow Kiyomitsu
>>3495952>>3496189Still better than mochis.
KAKAwame sprite update next werk. He's coming home /sword/.
>Hakusan droppedHoly shit, he's real. I told myself I would stop if he ever did, but my Shishiou needs a few more levels before he's ready for sending out.
Where is the best place to see Shishiou’s kiwame sprites as soon as possible outside of the game?
>because of the yamabushi kerfuffle ALL the swords' kiwame return animation can now be viewable as many times as you want
>>3497027I wasn’t around to see what the initial issue was about, what happened
>>3497017I like how because he was already shirtless in his original awakening his kiwame just has larger tears in his pants.
>>3497398Wow that’s interesting, what was plagiarized? From what I see in the updated arts he looks the same but the gave him an ugly side braid.
>>3497510Start here >>3487916
There were some parts of the old design that I liked, but overall I like the revised one a lot, especially the side braid since it's a blatant reference to Fudou-Myouou.
His back tattoo got changed as well.
>>3497531the perspective on that tattoo is borked to shit
His bare hands are now exposed in his casual outfit. Lewd!
>>3497528I honestly thought he had a side braid in the original silhouette and was disappointed when he didn't so I'm quite pleased with it too. The throw-some-string-and-beads look is far more Yamabushi's style than anything too intricate and artsy; there's more of a homely, down to earth vibe to his layers and that's far more monkly than going full deity. I don't know, the old one felt off to me but even with the braid looking especially tacked on in his internal affairs sprite this feels more like Yamabushi. It's not pristine or flowery, it smells of old hemp, woodsmoke, and pines. My bushi worked for this and I'll welcome him warmly.
>>3497536Wonderfully written, anon. I'm glad he has a kind saniwa to welcome him back.I also thought the original silhouette was a braid and was thrown off when it wasn't. The original headwear looked a little sillier to me than the braid. I wasn't opposed to bushi being decked out in gold and accessories because of his work of art status, but I do agree that this version is much more modest and subtle and fitting for his personality. You get a mix of the Yamabushi you've known for 5 years with a bit of his background sprinkled in. I think the color of his sash looks better in the new version, even though there's less contrast, and the blue ribbons are cute.
>>3497533Why is his head so small?
>>3497548Dissolved under waterfall. Please understand.
>>3497548Size went to his tits
>>3497657And his fucking feet.He looks like he's filling in some sort of quota.
>>3497657>>3497678>size upgrades didn't go to the right placesHopefully other swords were more fortunate.
>>3497678It looks ok if you tilt your screen back and lie your head on the floor/chair/desk. You're just viewing him from very low down.
>>3497704>>3497678Literally the same sprite pre-kiwame just with a braid tacked on, don't know why people are just now pointing out the proportions. His anatomy isn't even the most egregious.
New art from Honami TsudaHappy boys
>>3497981cute vampire on the right
>>3497985I like the sperg in the middle
>>3497981HEORS. Did Buzen add speedlines to it to make the horse go fast?
>any chances of a katsugeki movied died with kimetsuIt's not fair.
>>3498260I hope he likes konpeito.
https://twitter.com/stage_touken/status/1316936913748660230Hmm Sute Kashuu looks super suave.Also Souza thigh hnng
>>3498167It's over, /sword/. It's been over for quite a while anyway.
>>3498542It's not over until I say it's over, damnit.
>>3498353I wish Daienren had happened after this, so the kashuus could interact
>>3498574It never really happened though did it? Just some Skype convo with the actors
>>3498574There's still hope anon, it has been postponed
>>3499026Never have I ever not desired to own a sword so quickly.
>>3499026His head is so big but he's still so cute.
>>3499026His design is good, but his proportions are all over the place, just look at his head.
>>3498838Can't wait for the fucking pandemic to be over so I can see Kashuu reacting to Kashuu. >>3499026Ugh put it back
>>3499026>We heard you girls love LioThey did a fantastic job ripping off his design without plagiarizing a shred of his charm.
>>3499026looks like a plastic toy that got left on a radiator and started melting
>>3499026big brain time
>>3499026I kinda like it, but I fear he's just going to be lumped in with Midare as "designated trap"
>>3499087>ripping off his design>no leather, no cravat, and no poofy hairIt's really just the hair color, theyblook nothing alike
>>3499097The hair (color and shape), the pink and blue accents (especially the one pink earring with blue on the opposite side), the black tight leggings, and the loose white undershirt are all evocative of Lio's design if you ask me.
>>3499026What's with the tail?
>>3499026New Samonji is cute! CUTE!
>>3499132More like Sarumonji.
>>3499143A cute monkey and sandal warmer!
I wonder how much of the fanart he gets will actually be on-model
>>3499026does anyone even use non kiwame tantous after era 6? waste of storage space
>>3499230No need to be cruel, anon. Some of them are cute and worth wasting storage space for.
Is it unusual to collect every sword in the game and hold onto them? Levelling them all up is more satisfying than the kiwame level slog, and one day they'll kiwame too.
>>3499026"where do you work out? at the library", the sword
>A tantou by the smith Samonji of Chikuzen. He is yet another Samonji sword who questions how he ought to be, be it in sadness or joy. Since the name given to him is associated with Toyotomi, he strives to live up to it.>I shall warm up Master's sandals. Whoop. Here you go! Look, it's warm now~" I wish it was easier to find sprites when swords first come out.
>>3499374I don't like this monkey.
>>3499026AK AK AKAKAK AK AK
Remember to feed your Yamabush a balanced religious diet.
>>3499375Thighhighs AND a tiny kimono? Made for doujins, [spoiler]which is why he won't get any.[/spoiler]
>>3499509like something straight out of jigokuraku
>>3499470And an even tinier ass for size_difference.>>3499511Nice to see Nue looking Nue-ish.
He looks like he has gotten taller.
>>3499277It's every saniwa's goal to have a complete sword dex. Nothing unusual about it.
>>3499277>>3499829>tfw always one sword away from a (current) complete collectionIt's always the smith campaigns that cause this. Otherwise it's fun collecting swords.
>>3499829The thought of having to decide which ones to axe was unbearable, but I'm sure some Anon said they'd done it before.>>3499856Onimaru was the first time I knew defeat to smithing campaigns, and the second time too. I'm stockpiling request tokens via expeditions still and I've only just reached 400. Conchfag was worth it though. If I hadn't smithed him I would have probably forgotten the conch.
>>3499965Now that's a tiny bulge.
>>3499375What a waste to put that outfit on an underage character. I'm not pedo enough for this shit.
>>3499991b-but isss peepoo-hundred years old!!
>>3499993Why are you even into this game if you're going to act like you go by "he/they" on twitter?
>>3499993Nigga just call it shota, no need to get on your high horse and go "literal underaged children" on a jpeg.
>>3499982All I'm gonna say is that those pale legs need some hair on them.
>>3499994nooo someone made fun of me on the internet site!! how could this happen!!
>>3499982>underage>while posting suggestive art of the actual youngest sword in the gameInteresting.
>>3499963I think his design is great, but I'll never get around the shape of his headeven the ayylmaos were more human
What the hell am I reading
Damn anons get triggered if you point out that a sword doesn't look like an adult. Kids aren't sexy, give me beefcake.
>>3500072Weak if bait, but twitumblr is thataways if serious.
>>3500082It's bait to want beefcake?Get a grip.
Damn would you look at that, it's still monkey hours.
>>3500084It’s bait to come in using buzzwords like “underaged” and “triggered” and then assume I’m the one that’s unhinged here. Seethe more.
>>3500089How is underage a buzzword. All I'm seeing is shotafags not being able cope when an anon is not into kids.
>>3500309>underage>in a series where everyone is far from underageNot that anon but while I get not being into shota, specifically bringing up Taikou being "underage" was the wrong angle to go for anon. I know /sword/ has been dead but this isn't the type of activity I've wanted to see.
>>3500309It’s more likely to be considered a buzzword when there isn’t a single underaged character in the cast. Like, I love beef as much as the next person, but this is some serious reaching. Tkrb is one of those series that has something for everybody, and if it bothers you so much that some people might prefer twinky or shota looking characters then I don’t know what to tell you.
>>3500309There's no need to make it look like you're on the moral high ground over the rest of the playerbase with that shit, in the end, you're still some weeb wanting to fuck anime sword men on fucking 4chan of all places. Go bait people into fighting back to the shithole you came from.
>>3500309They're swords. Monkey is cute and I don't care who wants to fuck him or not, I just like cute moe boy designs.
God I love being a shotafag.
>>3500475*gasp*But anon!They're literal children!
Everybody shut the fuck up and post swords.
>>3500494In case you haven’t noticed, every single person contributing to the conversation has actually been posting sword, but thanks for your concern I guess.
I just realized I have over 60k images in my sword folder.60 fucking thousand. I saved them all over the course of the last 5+ years so it happened very gradually but jesus christ, sword brainrot is real.
Anyone else think Kokin is really hot?
Hello this is your state allowance of booby.
>>3499375How did they manage to make such an ugly, and yet such a cute character?
I have not touched this game since the event started. That's how disinterested I am with the new sword.
>>3501289>he isn't addicted to opening boxes
>>3500483*children who can stab you to death
>>3500745post more sword booba
G- Gine? Gine. Gine! Gine Gine!
>>3500555Upload them somewhere, please.
>>3502413Is he sat on the stool to get his hair cut?
>>3502464Disappear, ugly pig.
>>3502464>takes shishou 5 years to show up in 2.5D>takes monkey 2 weeksI want to be mad but it's actually kinda impressive. >>3502462Cute.
So I’m never played the Special investigation event, is there anything I should be prepared about it beforehand like what type of swords to bring and sword levels?I really want to do whatever I can to bring both swords home, and especially Sushinishi
>>3503610You can only send teams 2-4 to them and they'll be stuck in the map until you either recall them or finish the event. You also only can have 5 swords on the team since the 6th slot gets taken by your choice of either Kiyomaru and Suishinshi in this event, who also is the boy you get to take home first the first time you finish the map. I'm not sure what's recommended for them since at this point I just use my kiwame tantous for everything but I think you should be fine as long as you're using a team of high level boys. The wiki has more info on it too. Investigations are a pain since you're stuck at the mercy of rng but otherwise I feel they're pretty chill, have fun.
>>3503816I have a team of level 70s tantou, Mitsukun and Nakigitsune plus level 97 Yagen in my team 2, is that good enough? No kiwame though.
>>3503828The only thing you really should be worried about in these special investigation events are the nodes near the boss node and the boss node itself. Despite me having an all tantowame team in their 50s the enemies can still sometimes sneak some hits in.
>>3503831So who do you recommend I remove from my team to make space? You think my level 70s normal tantous team can manage to clear this event?
>>3503834Anything above level 50 should be good. It's also a good idea to mix your team up. When in doubt, consult the wiki.
>>3503846Hmm guess I should just try out the event tomorrow and see how it goes. I’m at a loss at who to drop to save up space though for the new sword.
>>3503847>run out of spaceI thought nitro gave out more than enough free sword slots?
>>3503880No I mean literally in my team who I should bench so that there’s a free slot for the event Sword.
>>3503903He is so pretty. How boys can be this pretty?
>>3503944because boys are pure
>>3503945Didn’t things that spilt blood like butchers/eta become impure in Japanese beliefs though?Doesn’t sound very pure
>>3504434Don't worry, we poured water on the sword so it's pure again. In some cases we even used fire.
>>3504435>poured waterUh...>>3504435>some cases we even used fireOnly if you want them to join Kashuu https://blog.yuhindo.com/utsushi/But not to worry, tons of legendary swords died that way and many were brought back to life as zombies. Nearly good as new.
Also fun fact, the undead who burnt to death in Osaka and then got brought back to life include Hitofuri and Toushirou
>>3504465Toasty fun for everyone!
Who’s most likely to be next in line to be kiwame this month btw, Ichigo?
Don’t you go dying on me now.
>>3504943Hopefully the R4s get the kiwame treatment next.
>>3505395I don’t recognize the two birds on the left,
>>3505440thats tsuru and kou?
>>3505442Hmm yeah I can see it now.>>3505495Post him shirtless.
Maybe kiwame will cure his dementia.
>>3505683I guess they’re going to do everything they can to make Ichigo last.Shame, after how lackluster all his official artist’s arts of him are I was waiting to see what would be done for his kiwame. Even they’ve improved like Yagen and Hasbe’s artists.
>>3504979what is the purpose of those thigh slits
>>3505706for your hands to slide in.
So what has /sword/ been investing their time in aside from tkrb?
>>3506129Replaying the whole Tales series.
>>3506129the good squid game.
>>3506129went full retard and bought a papered beggar kiyomitsu in a shady back room deal Now I’m anxiously awaiting arrival
>>3506129Watching shit and reading trash.
>>3506345How about you don't post of topic shit just to be /soc/?
>>3506129Watching anime, browsing /a/, masturbating, sleeping. Not much else, it's been an exhausting year.
>>3506411>masturbatingWhich sword is most likely to be a wankard?
>>3506417Ichi-nii while he peeks at his sleeping brothers.
>fourth round of minesweeper>already forgot to roll my dice in the morningI'm not actually sure what I'm doing this for since the exp isn't as good as the key event.>>3506345Actually the one thing I haven't yet because it doesn't appeal to me.
>>3506411Shinano is obviously at the top, with Tsuru a close second.
>whoops can’t show that in a Christian manga https://www.christianpost.com/trends/zoku-touken-ranbu-hanamaru-episode-3-spoilers-newly-manifested-swordsmen-to-create-more-complications-in-the-future.htmlWhat am I looking at?

>>3507580could anyone translate?
Spooky minesweeper progress report, go!
>>3507896I did 2 runs and got the swords and that’s it for me. This event clearly isn’t meant for farming or leveling up swords, sometimes I just nearly get killed in the same spot I had no problems in and I jut don’t understand it.When will these guys get a kiwame? I love their designs and dynamic.
>>3507896Round 5 here, suddenly stuck rolling infinite 1s and 2s. Wish the prizes for additional runs were better considering how much time it takes to get there - or at least if the boss nodes prior to the final one would count as beating a boss on dailies.
Higekiri’s artist has really improved, he looks so fluffy and handsome now. I’m excited for their other 2 swords too now.Hige’s injured art had cleavage and his shirtless awakening is sexy though no nipples.
>>3507983Pls post his injured art, that's all I can't find right now. I agree with all you said though.
>>3507988nvm I found them
>>3507988He has a nice body.
>>3507987Sorry I didn’t reply sooner, glad you found the rest already.
Anyone have injured kiwame party pics like this? Looking at as many as possible but at least 2+ guys shirtless together.
>>3508069For what purpose?
>>3508084Personal viewing? Sounds enjoyable
>>3508069>>3508087Just go to the wiki and grab the awakened sprites from there to whack off to.
>>3508093That’s not what I’m asking for.
>>3508141No one is going to spoonfeed you if the sources are right there anon.
>>3507988>>3507990>>3507991>>3508069Remember once they break they’re dead forever*
I miss sword sleepyposting to cap off the image limit.
>>3507991Bloody unwashed alzheimers tiddies
>>3508633The weirdest phrase that still makes sense.
>>3508535It's ok, Suishinshi is just putting his brother to bed.
>>3506129I stopped going to sword since last year and came back because >>>/lgbt/17842275 reminded me of /sword/:https://archived.moe/cm/thread/3360925/#q3362977For 4chan X users: >>3362977Dropped out of university for the third time and that's it, I'll succumb myself to the unyielding invisible hands of economy. I haven't even tried cosplaying Midare Toushirou.I did played FFXIV and I liked Haurchefant./sword/ contents are pretty much dead in Asian cons.
I miss activity
>>3506129I am actually trying to get back into swords. Hoped to do it in October with the new BakuTen, but then chinkflu killed those dreams. I'm waiting for the final stream cause there's no point in getting the cheaper ones now. Watched the Kashuu Asia Tour a couple days ago, it was very nice.
>>3509132I thought the asia tour went bust or something because I didn't hear shit about it all of last year.
>>3508978uni sucks anyway
>>3509998It supposed to not be, but I'm too much of a sperg amalgamation to have a happy/fulfilling/riajuu uni life. At least I would content with a hinota (total uninteresting normie) life, but nooo stupid RNG-sama/sky daddy said no
New thread when?

>>3510768Never, it's over.
>>3510797Turnip ornamentWait, are those fangs I'm seeing?
>>3510911He's always been a bit toothy, it's part of why I thought he looked like a sheepdog.

>>3510797Oh thank god I saved enough for yukata, when is it going to drop?
>>3510935>Suppose it makes sense since his brother is a vampireI think is real life lore than him and Matsui are considered twin swords too, or something like that I've heard. Explains their mirrored moles.
