【Touken Ranbu】
The movie trilogy started at the theater!
Enjoy the original story of the world of Token Ranbu!
The Touken boys’ calm Nichijou may change in the movie!?

Super popular game, Touken Ranbu, has anime series called Touken Ranbu Hanamaru! Its movie trilogy started playing at the theater on May 20th, 2022!”
Today, I want to review Touken Ranbu Hanamaru. What kind of story was it? Let’s check it together! If you haven’t seen Touken Ranbu Hanamaru, please watch it soon to enjoy the Touken Ranbu movie series.

What is the difference between Touken Ranbu and Touken Ranbu Hanamaru?

Touken Ranbu

The game was a mobile game that was developed and started its service in 2015.
It is a role-playing simulation game. The main protagonist of the story is called Saniwa who can personalize/humanize swords. The various swards are humanized as characters called Touken danshi. The purpose of the game is to fight against the opponent, Revisionists, to stop them from revising the past history
It has been 7 years since the game service started. Not only anime, but also theatre play, manga, movies, action games...... the story has been developed by various media. In the game, the players can set up “Saniwa” as many as they want, so players can develop their own stories with Saniwa as they like in the game. This flexibility makes this game very popular.

Touken Ranbu Hanamaru

Touken Ranbu Hanamaru is one of Touken Ranbu anime series.
In this anime, it describes the daily lives of Touken Danshi and Saniwa together. Usually Saniwa’s daily lives are not described in the game.
The story is about their nichijyou humorously. It is fun to watch and very popular.
There are many characters appear in Hanamaru. So you will see relationships between them that you can’t usually see in the game. I really enjoyed the conversations between them!
One little weak point of this story is that it would be difficult to understand the story if you do not know characters since there are so many of them in the story.
You get confused or do not understand their personality and unique characteristics if you watch it for the first time. It is still fun to watch it without playing the game, but I recommend you to play the game before watching this anime.

Should I watch the anime version Touken Ranbu Hanamaru before I watch the movie trilogy?

I think you should if you can!
I think it would be better to watch the anime version if you have time before watching the movies. Because in the movie trailer, one character shows his growth from the anime version.
I assume that the movie trilogy should be understandable without watching anime version, but you can enjoy more about the story if you watch the anime beforehand!

The movie trilogy, Touken Ranbu Hanamaru, contain a little bit serious story?
Happy to be able to see 3 movies at short intervals!!

In the movie trilogy, 24 new characters will appear in total and it contains a little bit serious story! (This is my impression by watching the trailer.
The trilogy is......
  • Snow story: May 20th, 2022
  • Moon story: July 8th, 2022
  • Flower story: September 1st, 2022
We can watch all 3 movies at short intervals. I am hoping to watch new anime series after the 3rd movie in September. Who knows? I hope you have time to check out the anime version, Touken Ranbu Hanamaru soon!
