New episode in 30 minutes.
What are you expecting this time?
>8 days left
At least the event gives insane exp
If Kotegiri wasn't cute I wouldn't even try that much. I don't know what's worse, 0.6% drop rates or 100k anal beads
All of the Honebami face shots make him look like Velvet, damn Ufo.
I see Mikleo, not Velvet. Especially his profile.
>like beauty marks
>fine with skinny boys
>Kotegiri doesn't appeal to me at all
This is peculiar. Is it because he seems more like a schoolboy than a sword?
They're school uniform pants.
I want my swords animated forever
I like how they developed Hori. He's not obsessive from the start but instead grew to care for Kane-san as the show went on.
Yagen showing off his deadliest weapon
Tonbokiri doing his hair
These are the bonus illustrations included in the second volume.
Truly the highlight of this week's episode.
There's already odagumi doujin with Fudou being introduced to the citadel. Complete with plant tentacle fucking (farming), horse fucking (stable work), and double dildo (sparring)
Well actually its Nihongo and hasebe with the horse fucking but whatever
Well it's in his game lines, there have been horse loving Yagen doujin gags for a while. If I could get to my books before thread ends I could up one but unfortunately these are short lived
Anon you lied to me Honnouji takes place in 1582 and the map says 1866.
It's probably going to be about Ryoma. ;_;
Would you eat sword soup?
Fuck you all I love these comfy episodes
Will these losers get the job done this time?
>Mfw Yagen has amazing fanart and even the show makes him lew as hell
I am in heaven.
Manba is a million times better captain than Kane-san, Jiji is invencible, Oodenta and Honebami are great and twincest bros get everything done including hardening my dick.
Meanwhile second unit has... Tsuru?
Just imagine being married to this pure and muscular soul.
>twincest bros get everything done including hardening my dick
They were born for it.
>Jiji is just there to look pretty
I want to be married to this sinful and lewd shota.
I thought this sequence was very funny, and the build up to it.
Unit 1 doesn't have a tantou thighs
Requesting webm of "that" Yagen scene from this episode.
Guys I'm desperate for artbook scans and I can't browse weibo for leaks to save my life. Should I just buy it and risk sending it to a nip scanning service?
My heart. I'm in love again.
Shipping to my country is fucking expensive and takes forever. Since Amazon decided to be a dick and not offer magic DHL shipping for it I'm fucked.
A scanning service could get it done in one day, I'm just afraid they'll tell me they can't do it.
Don't any of you fags live in japan, I'll buy you the fucking book.
Nowadays any female targeted stuff has to deal with petty fangirls not sharing shit or using watermarks proportional to their egos, as a poorfag this is only pain. If I was rich I'd share everything ;_;
Ufo is it's own canon, I don't mind this new mood. Heck, even as a Kane-sanfag I already got over his overly serious characterization. I wish it was a bit different but I don't think it's downright terrible.
>tfw hunting for magazine scans to no avail during Hanamaru
Fuck being a poorfag man. I would've scanned and translated all those magazine interviews, BD extras, and the special event booklet by now. ;_;
Just want the fucking artbook at least.
If they say no I lose 2kY. But I'm probably going to do it anyway.
It's fucking cute. I love art drawn by anime staff more than anything, no scans hurt me every day.
I understand that mentality when something is niche and they want it to be successful. I know I've been less likely to buy something myself if it's already on the internet even though I can afford it.
>Huge fanbases are cancerous cesspools but they'll likely have everything scanned and translated ASAP and people recapping events.
>Small fanbases are peaceful but you just have to pray someone bothers scanning stuff, let alone translate it.
Ideally I think it's supposed to prevent reposting, like they want to control how much it spreads, which is understandable. But yeah, most of the time it's actually about e-fame.
It will splash on his clothes and get him all covered in tomate juice, that's what happens when you bite a whole tomato like that.
Lucky for him Manba cleans his brothers's clothes everyday as the good husband he is
This fucking snake holy shit
He is not evil it's just his own way of caring for people. He is the kind of old man who teaches youngsters the hard way.
I hope he gets a chance to protect his precious Kane-san soon. He hasn't done much yet in Katsugeki.
I don't know about completely misunderstand. He knew that Izumi was blaming himself for Tonbo's injury, and even if he didn't know what else he was conflicted about, that's honestly a realistic expectation. Hori's his assistant and partner, not a fucking mind reader.
Scanning is a huge hassle if you don't have the equip or time though. Twitter user may not be super experieneced debinding and scanning. It's the only thing that stops me from digitizing my tourabu dojin library though I need the space more than the books now.
Yeah, I know that feeling. I've collected a bunch of doujins by now and own a scanner, but I don't have enough money to justify it for myself to buy spare copies and the thought of damaging them for scanning really bothers me.
I'll have to check out /blog/ sometime then. I only come back to /a/ for katsugeki so if not, next weeks it's not a lewd scene just literally story from horse's POV where horse is waiting for His Chance (from an anthology of EveryonexYagen stories "so you want to be my little brother?")
Don't do it, I don't wish this pain to anyone. I grind out of love.
This event keeps knocking my swords every second I even
had a dream about watching them die for real ;_;
>I just can't be fucked to play the game.
To quote an anon from /blog/, IIRC, it's ok to be a secondary for Tourabu because the game is bad. Just look at the people constantly talking about endless grinding and shitty drop rates.
I doubt it'll last, honestly. It's a dumb idea because you'll just end up with two dead threads.
Fukkit I'll just come back next week to /a then.
As for doujin scanning I really don want the physical books and want to archive all my doujin digitally soon, so I dont care about preserving or re-selling most of my collection. But just lurking and looking into better autofeed scanners than what I have now.
I got a book scanner because I'm an autist too, but even then I still couldn't nullify the damage.
So now I just buy and send them directly to a scanning service in japan. In the end I just want to have clean raws that I can read on my PC, and they take care of that for me.
Problem is now I have a bunch of unscanned doujins because I don't want to do it myself. I discovered this too late.
I'd rather it not happen for various reasons discussed in that thread, and /blog/ is good at keeping away certain types of cancer so being combined with them wasn't bad. Hopefully it at least doesn't descend into image dumping and circle jerks.
Living vicariously through this thread until I can see the episode
Any good Tsuru and Yagen moments? Somehow Katsugeki has me hooked on that shit. Sad that next mission isnt THAT Honnouji
Depends. Doing whatever they want has led other studios to create trainwrecks. I'd rather a boring adaptation than something to rape what I like.
Not really. They have VN elements and pander to the BL/otome crowd. Same reason why swords fit in. Other similar mobage are also allowed.
It's not random. It's a thread for otome/bl games and other games aimed at females or with a significant number of male characters. Since they can't have their own threads, they are discussed there.
I just woke up but I'm gonna make the thread regardless. I'm going to wait until this thread maxes out first though.
I'm not sure if to start the general No. from 1 or resume where it left off a year ago
Why is he so sexual no matter how QUALITY he is, /a/?
Nope, I can't sexualize this old man. To me he's just a cute walking joke.
He's a sword that can do both.
I want to be fucked by him and more.
Mucchan was very cute this week.
I want to see Sadachan animated! It won't happen though, because he's not popular enough.
I want to see Namazuo again.
Also they seem to forget all the new swords. I want to see Shinano.
I hope we'll get some shenanigans with Houchou in Hanamaru S2. I really love this little guy.
>his face when he is stuck in a sausage anime
I want to see the jew doing jewish things. Just 2 background frames will do.
Why so rough? Yagen must be handled with care.
Not one of my favorites that's for sure.
Will we ever get another ootachi like him?
That would make him less special so no.
Some really nice shots this week.
But still underwhelming for ufo.
>I wanted Hori and Manba to interact so much
Me too bro. Not even an okaeri or anything, it's like they didn't even know each other. Fucking Ufo giving me hopes and then crushing them so hard.
I need an entire episode about the Kunihiro bros adventures together.
Why are they such god tier bros?
I wonder how much of Miwa Shirow's art exhibition are of swords.
Never would I have imagined to see such an ayyy lmao Jiji for sale.
It's not a GK.
Are you guys using kiwames on the current event?
I kinda want to put my lower level ones to work, they're around level 35~40, but my wakis just got wrecked on E4, though they're still low level too.
I don't want to be forced to retreat.
Working great, two of them were at level ~33 when I started. I was using non-kiwame Shinanon as leader before and only retreat once after he lost his troops.
I wonder how Katsugeki would be with Mitsutada as its main character.
The event was a good excuse to level up my kiwame Hori and the rest, my wish is to have lv.80 kiwame at least. With a full team of them the expert map is a joke.
Just imagine him going berserk mode with his clothes ripped. Delicious.
I want a full kiwame team but still missing one guy to kiwame. I was going to do Fudou but he's cuter when he's drunk.
The remaining ones are so shit I don't want to kiwame anyone.
He's gonna take a bullet for Ryoma, or from him
Place your bets /a/
>there was nothing to Genji Banzai about this week
Genji BBQ pit was cute, but altogether too few lines and scenes. I guess they have a reliable and peaceful citadel life too.
It'd be great to see some despair though
I was actually disappointed their fighting style wasnt more ruthless per heike war style but the synchro was a good trade off
>and marrying their boat waifu is the greatest thing ever
Not really, all it is is a simple level uncap and you get some obligatory marriage voiceline. Some people even marry purely just to uncap their level.
Unless you're a selfinsertfag it's not that great, Touken doesn't need that shit and hope it stays that way.
Sounds like grail marriage in FGO but honestly yes I want higher levelcap but I dont care for self-insert, I'd rather they obsess over each other or former masters
Well no shit faggot, if you're not into it you obviously won't care.
I personally would love nothing more than to marry my cute wives and give them a special status in the shitty game.
I know some staff member said they would think about it recently, I want to believe.
They're not your wives. They're tools of war that will disappear once their purpose is complete and will eventually forget not only (You) but all the interactions they ever had with the rest of the swords
Kiwame has no romantic intent. It's either development (Fudou's alcoholism as escapism solved) or regression (Sayo sees that (You) only cares about him as a vengeful weapon ;_;)
What if only tantou/waki/uchi get kiwames, and the only way to upgrade tachi/oodachi/naginata/yari would be to pick one of them to be your hubby? The rarities would get out of hand if you could just kiwame someone like Jiji, not to mention that they'd have to alter his iconic design.
Kiwame is just tkrb's kai ni with a convulted character development story. Tachi,oodachi and whatnot could just be kept the same rarity, just they get increased stats or whatever.
The alteration in design to an hypotetical jiji kiwame could be absolutely minimal, like what KC did with Nagato.
For whoever still wishes to discuss tkrb further than just anime discussion limited to saturdays, /sword/ is back. Try to moderate yourselves a little so it can go better than expected.
I was kind of happy to see it back and hoped it'd go well since some fun times were had back when it was alive on /vg/.
Rest in peace /sword/.
>barely made it
>"it's more than I expected"
I don't understand what's the problem with Jiji being creepy or too sexual. He's incredibly handsome and I would more than willingly join that rape dungeon of his. I don't think many swords can match this man's sexyness.
What the fuck, what about DMM and Boat threads then?
Otaku will keep being low test forever.
I think it was his seiyuu who said Hori would look cute in gothloli, Yagen too. Thus millions of fanart.
Check out Katsugeki's radio, shit is super fun
>Only 50 unique IPs
We got around 70 unique IPs last week and by that time we already maxed a thread. What's happening this week?
I want to sexually bully both adult and shota Yamanbagiri
I'm assuming that anon was referring to this part of the op
On that topic though, anyone knows why surprise crane turned dark in that one stage play?
Kancolle is fine because the threads are fucking fast and would clog up the DMM thread.
The swords threads would be fucking slow and has no point to be outside either the DMM thread or /blog/. Really there's two places it fits in fine, there's no need for it to have its own general, you'd be forcing it.
Thanks for helping out every week.
I really love his face at the end of the webm.
Ufo knows exactly what they are doing
I'm grateful for that.
Ufo knows their audience quite well.
The DMM thread is for nutakushit so don't even remotely count it for anything.
/sword/ could have been perfectly in /jp/ but there's still people (and mods) who still don't know the difference between the two so they'd rather have more sachiko threads in /jp/
I expected that to happen, somehow. /jp'/s userbase would feel threatened and report the thread to oblivion.
They didn't need to talk with anyone because by nature they're allowed on /jp/. /jp/ is for VNs.
>Even if it's ded 90% of the time I'd like /sword/ back.
What's even the point? I legitimately don't understand forcing a general this hard. The only reason I can think of for why people want to separate from /blog/ so hard is because they know the posts they want to make are low quality.
I think /blog/ probably talked with the VN general, not sure. /blog/'s first attempts of a general before going to /vg/ were on /jp/ if I recall.
I think it kind of does though, touken ranbu is /jp/ as fuck no matter how "fujoshit" it looks like.
Almost all material is untranslated and it has tons of history bullshit that only sword otaku would know. It's the other competing force of comiket and has a lot of relevancy in japan too.
I just don't go to /blog/ because I don't care about all the other game talk. Last time I used to frequent it, it was like 1 sword post in 50 posts. It's not worth sticking to a general for that.
Having more condensed sword talk would be nice.
>I think /blog/ probably talked with the VN general
They didn't. They just made a thread there after dying constantly on /vg/ and nobody had a problem, because VNs belong on /jp/.
>I think it kind of does though
If it's dead 90% of the time, not really. No different from from posting in /blog/. Is there a reason why you don't want to post there? Hate BL/otome games or something?
/jp/ has been having problems with generals doing unnecessary "splitting" for a while now when neither resulting generals are active enough to warrant doing so. Not really a climate to be making yet another dead general that fits fine in another.
Then go on the Wiki Discord. It's all sword talk as long as you're willing to put up with the occasional Tumblr fanscreaming. Even an entire channel dedicated to posting fanart.
>Is there a reason why you don't want to post there? Hate BL/otome games or something?
You say that as if I haven't been posting all these years there.
It's just that touken has never been either otome nor BL and it's a bigger multimedia franchise that even 2ch has threads about I don't know why not here. Swordfags have to keep hijacking several threads to talk about swords and annoy other people when an anime isn't airing.
You guys keep saying "b-but muh dead threads" but you're too used to the fast pace of /a/ and /vg/ slow moving threads are perfectly fine
At the start of /blog/ some would make occasional posts about why there's fujoshit threads now. Now they're mostly used to it but two fujoshit threads is just too much for them.
I have, it's not a bad place but at the end of the day it's not anonymous and way too fast. All discussion relies on the 10 seconds that your posts last on the page. Discord is a terrible format to discuss anything.
Plus all the retarded rules about not being able to share shit like scans.
They never used the word fujoshit. They were asking what happened that made /blog/ move from /vg/ to /jp/. Fairly civil. Only one guy ever sperged out months later, and his posts were quickly deleted.
>even 2ch has threads about I don't know why not here
Bad parallel. Touranbu isn't niche over there, they actually have a good amount of posters.
>Swordfags have to keep hijacking several threads to talk about swords and annoy other people when an anime isn't airing.
Then just post in /blog/? Despite not being entirely otome or BL, it obviously panders to both groups which makes it fine there.
I think you also miss the fact that a lot of people on this site loathe generals, /jp/ included. Also see >>161359734. Nobody wants yet another inactive general sitting around.
You already knew this was going to happen since the beginning lad
Please, no. The actual circlejerk would be unreal, I'm fine with /blog/ and sword saturdays
I can understand why they've got a stranglehold. Nip artists are basically ready to delete their Pixiv/Twitters the instant some art scandal leaks or they find their shit scanned on the internet. 4chan threads disappear eventually, but Discord attracts too many retards who are going to keep reposting shit everywhere until nips get wind of it.
Also the rules really are fucking retarded but I'd rather have that then watch Tumblrites derail sword conversations into IRL nonsense every 10 seconds.
>Then just post in /blog/? Despite not being entirely otome or BL, it obviously panders to both groups which makes it fine there.
Of course it's fine, that's where it's been mostly all this time and there's sword posts here and there but for some reason nobody wants to discuss it more than necessary. Either internalized fear of derailing the thread or who knows. All sword talk is nothing but game related question, response, and that's it.
I know that everybody hates generals, although /jp/ has a ton of idol threads for no reason.
Oh well, it sucks that there is absolutely no concrete way to remotely talk about touken ranbu here at all just like before.
The alternative is discord but
The ufotable director responsible for the horse licking had to close his twitter account, looks like his horsing around caused some butthurt among fans.
There have been even worse things put out on TV. I don't understand nips sometimes.
I don't mind the posting fanart rules, all that's annoying is that you can't share official scans. And people there don't have that mentality of wanting to share shit with others either. It's just a combination of a lot of bad things. Safe language, fast posting, no anonymity, mod bitching, etc.
They have a channel dedicated to off topic IRL shit anyway.
You could, but I think this particular person is really intent on forcing a general on /jp/ specifically for some reason. It's literally like one person who's obsessed with this.
The /jp/ mods said to go to /vg/ and it's possible to have /sword/ on /vg/ but nobody really wants to constantly keep bumping the thread every hour.
I'm not though, I said /jp/ only because people didn't want to go to /vg/ again and the slowness of /jp/ was good for something as slow as TR. But I'm not exactly intent or obssesed, I already gave up.
