Last thread: >>127642449
Can we just agree to make a new thread whenever the old one dies without waiting for it? It takes thirty seconds to copypaste everything with two numbers changed, so don't be a cunt and do your part.
Kogitsunemaru 1/8 scale by Max Factory has been received by some fans today
Why would you keep making threads every time they die as if there was more than 10-20+ people caring to bump it? Let it die.
/sword/ is not sustainable, max posts it can reach is 400 or at the very best 500 but it never maxes and if it does it's full of shitposting
I wonder if anyone will try to remove his hakama to see his fully-sculpted
> as if there was more than 10-20+ people caring to bump it
What, you mean that that's not enough to justify a general? Please.
> max posts it can reach is 400 or at the very best 500 but it never maxes
It maxed out just fine before you literal faggots killed it in October.
You know, if you said there is only a point in keeping /sword/ alive during events, then I wouldn't have disagreed with you, but I don't get your motivation now. Yes, the thread isn't brimming with discussion; yes, it doesn't have hundreds of unique daily posters; yes, it has shitposting (unlike every other general out there). But it doesn't mean that people interested in keeping it alive should stop. /blog/ definitely does not provide enough space for discussion during events, and keeping the thread alive for the sake of continuity isn't a bad thing in itself, and if Nitro keeps putting out events at least once per month, I don't see why this thread can't be kept alive at all times.
You people are like Mugen thread's backseat mods.
I'm finally free.
Actually not really because Anija hasn't dropped. ;_;
There will be a banner starting tomorrow until the 28th (Japan time) with a serial code for Touken Ranbu's First Year Anniversary. Be sure to enter the serial code before the 29th or else you'll miss the freebies.
Really, why? Neither a warning or something
Sayo's anniversary line is pretty fucking depressing, poor kid. Murase's voice acting made it hit especially hard.
If he didn't mention 黒い感情, I would've sympathised. Last year, I only remembered it already was my birthday a week after it happened.
He says that he's so busy moping he didn't notice it was anniversary until he was told that.
My max is 27150. I think that's higher than what it was at when I was 99?
But are there really people over saniwa Level 99 that are still worried about ressources? Most people I've seen have 100k+ ressources at that point.
>But are there really people over saniwa Level 99 that are still worried about ressources? Most people I've seen have 100k+ ressources at that point.
My resources are mostly gone due to the crafting event. Which never amounted to anything ;_;
>My resources are mostly gone due to the crafting event. Which never amounted to anything
Damn, you too? I got none of the event swords and used up all my ofuda. I did get Uguisumaru though so I'm not completely empty handed.
I got Akashi and Nihongou, so I'm pretty happy. Started with ~200k of each resource, and now I'm sitting at just above natural regen for steel. My other resources are doing a bit better though.
Honestly, I'd rather have something permanent like LSC. Nothing burns resources faster than going on smoothing sprees for a limited time campaign.
Got Nihongou but no Akashi. TIme for more 6-2 grinding after the event is over....
He'll be the only one I'm missing though, barring Monoyoshi. Full collection is gonna be worth it.
Scales have been pretty random except for Kogi/Jiji/Tsuru/Kashuu.
And I think all swords get some keychain thingy.
I'm sure the brothers will get something as well, but it'll probably take some time.
And well, there's almost no merchandise from Nitro+ directly anyways.
We'll get art by the official artists the next few days on Twitter.
The game is 1st for more than a week, except for one day. Anyone who got a screenshot of January 13 rankings?
Is there any other reasons to make these generals? Keeping it alive is tiring when no one really wants to talk about the game.
These threads are the only decent place I know to speak about Tourabu. /blog/ works too, but I always feel bad when talking about Tourabu too much over there since it's not all that related.
So I'll try keeping them alive. Now if we only had more Amerifats, it'd work better. Since the last threads both died around the same time (Europe sleeping time).
But anon, no one wants to talk about the game. Not even me. I only post when there are updates or thread needs bumping.
I remember having discussions whether /sword/ should be separate from /blog/ or not. There were 2 anons that dislike any sword discussion in that thread. It would be nice/better to be back in /blog/ though.
Someone posted Kahotan's photo showing Doudanuki Nendoroid's back on /blog/ by the way >>128540140
There's not really much to discuss for this grindfest but im a little interested in everyone's take on the character dynamics.
What's everyone's favourite group of swords and why (historical or just swords people stick together a lot for whatever reason)?
>Nakigitsune himself speaks for the one year saniwa anniversary
What a cute guy.
His little fox looks better from behind.
He'll either get some pantsu, the figure will be designed so you can't see his crotch, or he'll be smooth up front like his nendo, unfortunately. No one should plan on owning official PVC Jiji penis.
>GSC just announced the exact figure I put in a product request for
If they'd make the Iwatooshi I put on that same request, that'd be wonderful.
I'm content with cuddling.
Fuck GSC for making the animal guys into scales. I can't resist those cuties.
>Fuck GSC for making the animal guys into scales. I can't resist
If you wanted your money more than the figures, you'd have the option not to buy them. Some people want to spend their money on sword scales that may never exist.
When the time came to pay for it I regretted it so much, but I hope that once he arrives I'll feel better about it.
I like the Samonji brothers. I want to hug those gloomy dorks.
CCP, Hasebe, Kogi, Ishikiri and Kashuu.
And Iwatooshi's tits.
I want Kogi to
princess carry me.
So DMM decided to block all IPs from my country. By any chance are there others experiencing that?
>Blanket actually smiling
I am okay with this.
But why the Philippines in particular? That sounds so weird. Is it possible filipino ISPs are blocking DMM for its R18 content?
I love it when they shota-fy some of the swords.
Behold the muscles of this servant of the Buddha.
On that note, is there some sort of pattern for which duo you're going to see having a conversation? (For the sake of unlocking all of the twins' casual outfit pics per toku level.)
Fuck, this music box version of the honmaru theme is so lovely that I'm scared to move past this screen.
I have that too. Pretty positive it's normal.
Oh, duh. Not sure why that never occurred to me before.
>Being a sad person, I keep the music turned off.
Yeah, I usually just put on a video to the side so the music would just get in the way. Though I did turn it on again on the run where I'd obtain Hiza.
Some fan arts on Pixiv and the presence of cute-looking characters.
It was a plus when I found out the whole "nihonto's manifestation" thing, as I am a fan of swords and blades of any kind.
Nah, some anon convinced me that it was a bug with some calculations I'm too stupid to understand, so I stopped there.
But hey, a few more tries won't hurt, so I'll farm the last few days to 200k.
I always have all sounds turned off. It's a bit of a shame since I miss the voice acting, but I'm watching anime on the side and two voices at once would confuse me.
I'm free for real this time.
Don't know how people over 100k can keep up hope. I'm so glad it's over.
> some calculations I'm too stupid to understand
It was just one simple formula, m8.
> got him within 5 runs
Chance of 7.3%, about one in fourteen people should have gotten this result were the probabilities truly random.
Got him at 6.6K.
I just wanted the background since I just started playing again last weekend after not touching this shit since summer. Somehow everything turns out better than expected when I'm not actively farming for a specific drop.
now that the event is counting down, what is everyone's impression of it? Overall, I thought it was pretty well designed for a tkrb event (personal gripe about still no hige for me either still though) and I'm enjoying it.
Unfortunately I didn't play too much and I didn't get any of the brothers, but I still thought it was a nice event. I really liked how they advanced to the next battle immediately without any post battle screens, it makes things go much faster. I wish normal maps were like this too.
Better than the previous events because most of those were horrendous. There's still a lot that can be improved on, but it seems like devs might be stepping it up this year so I'm cautiously optimistic. It'd be cool if they used new bgm and enemy designs in future events.
He'll most likely show up again as a boss drop anyway. The event was tedious as fuck, but not having to worry about resources and bullshit drop rates like in the janitor event was a good trade off.
I started this event with only 6k kobans left and 3 free passes missed everyday because of school. Now I'm at 43757 and pretty sure I can bring Hiza home by tonight. You can really do it if you try, anons.
But to tell the truth I was really stressed over this event I was scared I wouldn't be able to bring Hiza home on time. Thank god Anija arrived when I was at 22k.
Having to switch around teams made it more interesting and it also resulted in me finally having higher leveled shotas I can use in world 6. (On that sidenote, I got through 6-2 in one go but 6-3 is giving me a lot of RNG trouble with the branching paths. Luck sure is weird.) It was a pretty good one for me.
Worst ship is Kogi with anyone, since he's mine.
Never cared for the tumblr hate, but isn't most of the good stuff on pixiv or twitter anyways? I mostly just stick to following otome artist twitters, really.
Yeah, most are on pixiv and twitter. The only artist I know that posts his art on tumblr is Ishida Sui, but there are probably a few more.
The hate is mainly because of the shitty userbase and the ugly .gifs they make, but you probably know that.

Just saw that Amazon has all the color pages except the last two as previews up, in better quality than this. Dumping them because why not.
Only a bit more than a day left to the event.
Who else is still farming for the brothers?
I forgot about Monoyoshi and Gotou already. That happens with every recent sword, they have a very short lived popularity then suddenly die.
The Koutetsus never really became popular, akashi was popular for a while then suddenly became forgotten, hakata was only popular for the entirety of his event, nihongou only got popular for a while because of his recollection and monoyoshi, even though he spiked in popularity instantly because >Izumi and then had his recollection with Gotou, he still kinda slowed down.
Same will probably happen with the new swords, they'll eventually be forgotten for the next new thing.
Chapter 2 of the anthology.
This chapter is really short, next chapter will hopefully be done soon.
I like Gotou though his design is feels a bit off and even incomplete without Monoyoshi to compare (fuck me). Still, he is one of my regular tantou and I prefer him over some of his brothers. That said, he wasn't hugely popular even at his peak iirc. Usually there's a huge outpouring of art for new swords but I didnt see much of him, comparatively speaking.
