Two More Sword-Boys Join the Ranks of the “Touken Ranbu” Anime

If World War II battleships as cute girls don’t quite cut it for you, you can always try legendary swords as cute boys. Touken Ranbu is the latter of these and has been rather well received among fans. And each week, more favorites from the original game are introduced into the Touken Ranbu – Hanamaru anime series.


The most recent two, according to the show’s official Twitter:


Kousuke Toriumi as Mikazuki Munechika



And Makoto Furukawa as Ookurikara



You can see these new additions to the cast and more — many more, probably — every Sunday afternoon.
