Ladies, time to rejoice, because the sword boys of Touken Ranbu are finally getting their own TV anime adaptation! An announcement for the anime was spotted during the Anime Japan 2016 event, and it says that we should expect to see the new anime in 2017. The anime will be adapted by ufotable (Fate/Zero, God Eater)
Not much has been revealed except for the 2017 release and that ufotable is producing it, but stay tuned for more announcements. Touken Ranbu is considered by many as “Kantai Collection for Girls,” but instead of anthropomorphic ship girls, Touken Ranbu is about anthropomorphic sword boys, who are based on real-life historical Japanese swords.
Like Kantai Collection, the game is distributed by DMM, and co-produced along with Nitroplus. The game was launched back in early 2015 and has become a huge hit as an internet browser game, much like Kantai Collection.
