Touken Ranbu Stage Play Gets Anime!Kyoden Moyuru Honnōji director/playwright Kenichi Suemitsu returns to pen animeThe May 15 Osaka performance of the Touken Ranbu Kiden Ikusa-Yu no Adabana stage play announced that the first non-musical Touken Ranbu stage play, 2016's Touken Ranbu Kyoden Moyuru Honnōji, is inspiring an anime adaptation. The play follows Fudō Yukimitsu, the (anthropomorphized) sword that real-life legendary leader Oda Nobunaga received from his attendant Mori Ranmaru.The play's director and playwright Kenichi Suemitsu (Welcome to the Ballroom) returns to oversee and write the series scripts. While the announcement did not specify the anime's medium or format, it teased that its "broadcast window and other details" will be announced as soon as they are confirmed.https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2022-05-15/touken-ranbu-stage-play-gets-anime/.185693
>>3702890>nobunaga>AGAINgoddamn was this particulat stage play that popular? Leave Honnouji alone for God's sake
>>3714358most likely they're trying to animate all the plays, or at least up to hiden, so they can milk the fuck out of jijii/manba as always
>>3714624Someone should let them know there are more characters than just those 2. Almost 100 more, in fact.
>>3714624>so they can milk the fuck out of jijii/manba as alwaysI fucking hate this ship
>>3714634I feel you, anon. God forbid you say anything that isn't dicksucking this ship because its insufferable fans will pounce on you otherwise. It disgusts me that it wormed its way into the game during the Great Invasion event because they got the stage play director to write for it. >>3714630There's so much lost potential with a bunch of swords but the lazy fucks go for low hanging fruit because it prints them money. There's people that actually delude themselves into thinking that the stage play isn't a fujo cashgrab based on these two. And I'm talking as someone who enjoyed the stage plays outside of the blatant pandering.
I didn't even realise it was a ship. I've never seen Manba fuck the old man.
https://store.steampowered.com/app/1191260/Touken_Ranbu_Warriorsjeej on the pc!!
>>3714952Thank fuck for that, wasn't expecting it to be on steam. glad i don't have to fish my switch out of storage.
>>3714667>>3714923Shipping is always better when it's the fans doing crazy shit, if Nitro keeps forcing this boring ass crap as the official Touken Ranbu ship I'm going to be pretty triggered
>>3714923Anon...it's been the most popular ship since 2015. Although I wish I was in your shoes because I fucking hate the sight of it.>>3714985I thought the worst happened with the Great Invasion event, but now with the tousute anime it definitely will attract secondaries and get treated as "official". Fans were already obnoxious when the two got a character song together in Katsugeki. I remember seeing some moron saying people only hate the ship because they never watched/refuse to touch tousute and treating the stage plays as The official media. Like if you don't watch the stage plays, you're a fucking clueless idiot who doesn't understand peak fiction and romance.
So what are our options for the movie? Just wait a million years until someone rips and uploads the BD?
>>3716089I don't think we're getting it, but the anime was released on crunchyroll so there is a possibility
>>3717026Chug sucking at paperwork!
What's everyone's opinion of Warriors so far? I'll probably buy it either way.
>>3717444I'm enjoying it. even if i did have to put up with my 2 options both being called yamanbagiri for 4 hours.
First five episodes of Hanamaru radio are up on Toho's youtube channel.https://www.youtube.com/c/TOHOanimation%E3%83%81%E3%83%A3%E3%83%B3%E3%83%8D%E3%83%AB/videos
>>3703373they look weird
>>3705558most kiwame are ugly, i dont like yamabushi and nakigitsune kiwame
>>3718136I wouldn't say most kiwame are ugly, but some are definitely a bit crap. Jirou's has to be the worst in my opinion.
I want to play the new game and feel enthusiastic about swords again but I'm poor and everyone seems to agree that it's a pretty barebones musou game with not enough content to justify the AAA price, so I don't know what to do.
>>3718170I'm downloading the steam demo, then I'll wait to see if it's ever discounted.
>>3706783for me buzen>kuwana>matsui>kotegiri>inaba>>>>>>the rest
Just beat the musou. spoilier alert, I don't think homokage is coming to the browser game.
>>3718168Really? I like Jirou's and how him and Tarou got nice matching white outfits. I think they look regal and lovely. I personally think most of the tantou got uglier kiwame, as their whole appeal was being cute and now they're all covered in armor. Akita in particular.
>>3718423Was the story any good, at least?
>>3718136I like Yamabushi's, especially after seeing some people cope and seethe over a muscular man having a braid (which actually does have significance). I do think the clothing is somewhat cluttered, but not as much as his initial kiwame design.The worst for me is probably Koryuu's. His original design was already a trainwreck but his kiwame version is a bigger mess. I got used to the tantou's silly hats.
>>3718440I think that Jirou had one of the best outfits in the game, and it looking elegant and graceful really contrasted with him being constantly smashed off his tits. his kiwame looks too bulky in my opinion, and trades out his hairband for a hat, which I'm not fond of. the outfit works for Tarou, but I don't think matching outfits is worth removing all of Jirou's interesting elements. I'd probably like the kiwame more if it kept the headband and exposed shoulders, maybe have the exposed front of the old design, so that it'd be similar to Tarou's without losing Personality. Also, I am pretty fond of most toushirou kiwame for pretty much the same reason of making most of them fairly distinct. Oh, and Shinano looks like the postal dude.>>3718441I enjoyed it, though it was kinda long and a few missions could probably be cut out (the stealth missions felt a bit pointless, albeit a nice break between the slaughter). got me attached enough to Omokage to be kinda upset i won't be seeing him in the browser game, if nothing else. Character variety would be my main complaint- Tomoe and Hyuga were the only rare picks (Both fit pretty well into the story, mind you)- and There's an overabundance Of tachi and uchi wit only 2 tantou and 1 max for all the other classes. The fairly generic character picks hurt a bit too. Okurikara adds absolutely nothing to the game and manba only really works cause choog is there. the uneven teams are a bit shit as well, only teams 3 and 2 are good with choice. If I had to make a slight roster adjustment I'd add a couple more characters to fill out all the teams- maybe add Juzumaru or Ishkirimaru for team one, remove okurikara and replace him with taikogane, probably cut both manbas and replace them with the kotetsus. Shove Koga in somewhere, his strong belief in fate would really fit well in the game. Overall enoyed the game, though sorry for sperging out a bit.
>>3718462I didn't realise you meant his original outfit when you aaid elegant and graceful because I always thought non-kiwame Jirou was dressed like a prostitute. Haha...>>3718440I know I'll get shit on for this again but covering them up is the point. They're your babies, you coddle them with extra layers of protection so they don't get hurt. The hats referencing their old masters is a bonus and helps them feel like big swords who make a difference. God knows how they're still so fast while wearing all that clunking weight.>>3718451I have a soft spot for Koryuu because he was my first three troop tachi. I get that the colours are bombastic and that doesn't do it for people, but my god they managed to make the honmaru blocking tarpaulin look cool, and actually worked a commanding sex appeal into the default sprite. My biggest complaint about his kiwame is that the internal affairs tracksuit is the same plain look and doesn't carry over the open chest of his main look. It feels like an instant downgrade again to the aloof sneaks-the-fuck-out goof he represented before.
2022 tsurumaru still the most popular swordhttps://www.uniten.net/stat/663
>>3718470That's fair, I was also disappointed that Yamabushi wasn't more visibly muscular in his kiwame internal affairs outfit. Though really I think it's the staff doing the bare minimum and/or not paying their artists enough so we get copy-paste sprites like the keisou. Despite ripping off Kancolle they never stepped it up to give us unique seasonal or holiday outfits or shit like that.
>>3718555>mutsunokami not in the top 20what a shit taste
>>3718555Azukisisters what went wrong
I got guided here after asking on the joseimuke thread on /vmg/, does anyone know where i can download the stage plays + musicals subbed without having to join some sekrit club
>>3714624Man I want the musicals to get animated. Just to see it.
>>3720949Wasn't there tenimyutopia? You don't even have to join that and they had most of the musicals up to the fifth (they used to have more but they only kept the subs six onwards)
>>3720949https://mega.nz/#F!5JZiXCbS!mkoV2pydVacXG348LXiY8w!ZQImiZyIStageplay mega is dead, anybody know of a replacement?
>>3718927Azuki is boring with lame design
>>3722305Preview up too, I'm excited for this one since it has most of my favorites out of the more recent sounds so far together: https://youtu.be/smrbIKFlQAw>>3722806Don't talk about my husband like that>>3718927Hopefully the movie will show people the error of their ways, even if it might cost me merch wise if he gets a popularity bump from it
You better believe I'll be taking screencaps of Onimaru purely to insult his hair.
>>3723409It is morally correct to make fun of Onimaru's hair
God he looks like shit. Don't let him visit Claire's Accessories. It can only get worse.
>>3723669It doesn't look like they were the same character
It’s weird because I like shinshinto swords and that makes me want to get shinshinto swords in the game
>>3724481They're very cute
>>3724507His smith btw was reputed to be a good looker when in his youth, had a tumultuous life and then killed himself many rumors about him too btw https://markussesko.com/2013/08/14/the-case-of-kiyomaro/amp/
>>3724624>good looker in his youth>lived a tumultuous life>killed himselfhe was swordsmithing kurt cobain
Say something nice about this father, /sword/
>>3724696>curt cobainWhat if he killed himself with the kiyomaro from the game?
>>3724716It's cute how tiny he is for being an old man. Also his thighs are lewd.
Isn’t this swole sword the youngest out of all of them?
>>3724874It's easier to stay in shape when you're young.
>>3724716I find the artist's style and designs delicate, elegant and original. Beautiful crow, the sword itself is also cool.
>>3724716I love watching people recoil in horror when they ask if there's any old man designs in the game and I show them this old crow. He is so Japanese he filters weebs.
>>3724716Cutest birb.>>3725349Some people just don't know how to appreciate traditional cultures.
>>3724716>>3724868I love feminine boys!
see this, what do
>>3727089ask them to start frotting.
>>3727089Tootle conch heartily and with vigour.
>>3727133Shut up and go frot with your cat, Chougi
>>3727308Cute farmer boy.
Are there high-res images this anywhere? I would pay a nip to scan it for me.
I never played this game.
>>3732888Oh nice, a fuckboy.
>>3732888Is this the Legends Arceus guy?
Why is Kiyomaro best sword?>the samurai of this fief were so worried that they constantly sharpened their blades in fear of an imminent seppuku. This lead to a kind of contest of who had the sharpest blade. The poorer samurai were jealous because they were not able to keep up with fancy swords but Kiyomaro had compassion for them and forged them durable and sharp blades for a cheap price. Of course they were no art swords and because this was a secret he had to leave them unsigned.>Well, the efforts of Kiyomaro were not approved by the fief and so the bakufu ordered the then Shōnai-daimyō Sakai Tadayoshi (酒井忠良, 1831-1884) to take legal action. But Kiyomaro had luck because Kiyokawa was in Edo at that time and informed the smith of what was going on. Eishirō reported further that, from that day onwards, Kiyomaro always had a drawn blade by his side when he was working in his forge. According to this transmission, he was caught by a group of Shōnai retainers on the 14th day of the eleventh month of Kaei seven (1854) whereupon he committed seppuku right on the spot.
>>3734673uh sanchou is taller than azuki? fujos btfo
I bought a Juzumaru nendo 3 months ago. fuckers haven't even shipped it yet.
>>3734897Was it new? I keep seeing JP twitter users posting photos of new Nendos when AmiAmi hasn't even taken payments yet. They're def prioritising fulfilling local orders via Good Smile before sending stock elsewhere.
>>3734915Nah, it was from solaris. only place I could find one in stock, but if I cancel I don't get all my money back.
>>3734918Damn, I hope he comes through for you.
>>3734921Got an email back from them. they don't ship to the UK (or most of europe for that matter) anymore because of the war in ukraine. fucking putin keeping me from my boys...
>>3735612Eeeh? But FedEx, DHL, and now EMS are still going for UK. I should know; my bank account has been feeling it.
>>3735656yeah, I can get it changed to EMS but it'll cost me £25, and I've already spent a load on shipping for some doujins I bought from mandarake. I'll probably cave if I have the money this month, but only because I'd like to see it before I'm drafted to fight in ukraine.
the new sword are ugly, they haven't made a handsome sword since azuki nagamitsu and ruined yamabushi with that ugly braid what were they thinking
>have not touched the game in almost a monthIt's over, /sword/. The dream is collapsing.
>>3737753Unfortunately, same. I'm struggling to find motivation to log in to get the new sword. It hurts man, I've been playing for so long but any time I start any new mobile game I'm just shocked at how they did the absolute bare minimum for swords and it took years to even get simple story events. Every new game that comes out makes tkrb look even more boring and ancient than it already did when it was new. I think the franchise has amazing characters and the 2.5D storytelling is great, I don't want swords to die, but I truly think they'd need to make a complete game overhaul if they ever want tkrb to return to the glory it had when it was first released.
>>3738068My thoughts and feelings exactly. It has lots of potential (characters, story, design, the setting...) yet most of the interesting stuff is it's derivatives and not the game itself. It amazes me how this thing made it so far. Been playing for a year and I don't know how popular it is compared to back then but they really need to come up with new stuff.I understand the charm of casual gameplay but I remember the feeling of been three months or so in and thinking how braindead it really is, like, I don't even bother with the Village of Treasures event anymore and I wish they changed it for something else.I got my motivation back because of Shichiseiken's event and that was months ago. Here's hoping they throw some more lore stuff but I have this feeling of Nitro not giving a shit (if they ever gave one) and with how old it is they'll just keep sucking it dry instead of killing it and starting anew.
