Aniplex and ufotable confirmed in a video today that their planned anime feature film project for the Katsugeki: Touken Ranbu TV anime is still in production. Aniplex streamed a video teaser to match.

There is still no information about the possible release date. However, the announcement states that "planning is ongoing".

Aniplex of America describes the story of the anime as follows:

The year is 1863, the turbulent samurai era is drawing to a close, Japan is split between the pro and anti-shogunate factions. The fate of the world is threatened when an army of history revisionists is sent from the future to change the course of history. To hunt down these forces and protect the true story, two sword warriors, spirits who are swords brought to life by Saniwa (a wise man), rush to Edo. The polite and thoughtful Horikawa Kunihiro and the short of breath but skillful Izuminokami Kanesada, who served the same master, face the invading army along with a lively band of other warriors, including Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki, Yagen Toushirou, Tombokiri and Tsurumaru Kuninaga.

The fate of history rests in the hands of these heroes, and what hits the blade has yet to be revealed ...
