Genre anime: Slice of Life. Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru takes place in the year 2205, a time when Alternate Historicists are attacking the past in an attempt to change history. The Saniwa sage has a mission to protect that history and so has gathered the strongest type of Tsukumogami (inanimate objects inhabited by spirits) in the Inner Citadel: Touken Danshi (Sword Warriors).

Unless you're already in the Touken Ranbu fandom, I don't suggest this anime. However for those who are in, first episode was promising and exciting. The 2nd anime by Ufotable will probably be focusing more on action and combat, so non-fandom peeps; wait out till that one instead.
This anime may seem very dissapointing to you all anime lovers but let me get this straight. This anime is based on a game called Touken Ranbu, which is pretty popular game in Japan and their fandom is really big and all - but the main point of this anime being created is because it shows about the light and heartwarming daily lives of these "Sword" characters living in their citadel while serving for their "master/saniwa". We don't think this anime brings a lot of heavy and serious elements because this anime mainly talks about the "daily lives of living happily in Citadel", so if you're looking for those serious types, we don't suggest you watching this because overall you won't understand and will be very unhappy about it. But for those of you who had been waiting for this anime to come out, we can say that this anime start out really cute and funny and the characters are really good personality wise. Have fun watching!
