          Is it wrong that when I read the description my first thought was that this one has Stelok written all over it . . . .

              Stories in the Hell Girl franchise usually begin with bullied or tormented people accessing the Hell Correspondence website, allowing them to submit a request to eliminate the person tormenting them. It is then that Ai Enma, the titular Hell Girl, appears, and gives these people a doll that, once pulled, sends their tormentor to Hell, where Enma and her companions proceed to enact karmic torment on the doomed person.

He lives in a small corner of the country, and just can't seem to get ahead in life. Both academically and athletically he's below average. But in within him, he hides a heart burning with passion! In this world in which love is forbidden, what will happen to him when he falls in love?

                          Aniplex of America

                          They've just added the trailer for Katsugeki: Touken Ranbu to their Youtube channel. Given that Aniplex is on the production committee, it's not terribly surprising.

                          Aniplex of America Acquires
                          Katsugeki TOUKEN RANBU for Summer 2017
                          Japan’s Newest Social Phenomenon Receives TV Series Adaptation

                          SANTA MONICA, CA (April 14, 2017) – At the Nitroplus panel at Sakura Con in Seattle, Washington today, Aniplex of America announced the acquisition of Katsugeki TOUKEN RANBU for their summer 2017 line up. Based on the immensely popular game “Touken Ranbu ONLINE” developed by DMM Games/Nitroplus, the series will be produced by the much loved ufotable, known for their groundbreaking work on Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works and God Eater.

                          Aniplex of America also showed a trailer for the series, which they plan to start streaming in July 2017. Since its debut in 2015, the online game spawned a rabid fan movement within Japan and has been described as nothing short of a social phenomenon thanks to their very popular characters. As a result, the series promises a high quality production with stunning visuals and captivating storylines revolving around these individuals.

                          About Katsugeki TOUKEN RANBU:
                          The year is 1863 as the tumultuous samurai era is coming to an end, Japan is split between the pro-shogunate and anti-shogunate factions. The fate of the world is threatened as an army of historical revisionists are sent from the future to alter the course of history. In order to bring these forces down and protect the real history, two sword warriors, spirits who are swords brought to life by Saniwa (sage), rush to Edo. The polite and thoughtful Horikawa Kunihiro and the short tempered yet skillful Izuminokami Kanesada, who served the same master, confront the invading army along with a lively gang of other warriors including Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki, Yagen Toushirou, Tombokiri, and Tsurumaru Kuninaga.

                          As the fate of history lies in these hero’s hands, what meets the blade is yet to be uncovered...

                          With beautifully illustrated scenes and action packed sequences, Katsugeki TOUKEN RANBU explores the complex personalities, stories, and relationships of these characters as each episode unfolds.

                            Well, it kinda looks like another shoujo-ish samurai series something like Hakuoki, and I really enjoyed that one. The Aniplex/Ufotable combination is always a good thing, plus a Kalafina ED, so I'll definitely be looking forward to any Aniplex Blu-ray release down the road for it.

                              It's actually based on a game. Not at all shojoish. It's more or less like Kancolle Collection...only instead of collecting historical Japanese boats, you're collecting historical Japanese swords. The Shisengumi do play a huge role though.

                              As soon as I heard ufotable was getting this, I figured AoA would license it. I might actually have to back down on my '**** AoA'stance and buy this.....

                              Hopefully CR gets this, but hey....I'll watch it thru other means if I have to.
