For fans of the Touken Ranbu anime, it is not just any series but an emotion.

Anime fans have big expectations from the live-action adaptation of the iconic sword game because previous productions were brilliant.

Furthermore, the trailer incorporated the goose bumps-inducing fight between the sword boys and History Retrograding Force. Apart from having exhilarating action pieces, the movie will also present emotionally wrenching stories as the Sword Boys continue to fight against destiny for the greater good.
Who are the cast members of the live-action anime mania?
The ninety seconds trailer bombards you with all things good you would expect from a live-action film about Touken Ranbu anime. And one of the most praiseworthy aspects of the trailer is the strong dialogue delivery and performance of the cast involved.
