Coming live action movie Touken Ranbu: The Movie (映画刀剣乱舞) finally publishes the first visual after the announcement in March. The poster is a headshot of the movie’s protagonist – Mikazuki Munechika.
The movie is based on the Touken Ranbu’s stage play spin-off which has been running since 2016, but the story will be one that has never been heard before. Many of the recurring stage actors will return to their usual roles. Saiji Yakumo (Mars: Tada, Kimi wo Aishiteru) and Yasuko Kobayashi (Kamen Rider) have been assigned to be the director and the screenwriter respectively.
Touken Ranbu: The Movie will open in Japan next year.
