After the last episode aired on 24 September, it was announced that the series will be followed by a movie. A teaser video announcing the movie has also been uploaded onto YouTube, but for more details we will have to wait for further announcements.
Katsugeki Touken Ranbu is based on a browser simulation game called Touken Ranbu -Online-, where players forge famous Japanese swords that become beautiful men. It is set in the Bakumatsu period, in which Izuminokami Kanesada, Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki, Kunihiro Horikawa, Yagen Toshiro, Tsurumaru Kuninaga and other famous swords take on a human form and throw themselves into a fight against evil to protect history.
The cast from the game also voiced their characters in the anime. Junko Minagawa voiced the added character of the Saniwa and Takuma Nagatsuka voiced pipe fox Konnosuke.
