Top 10 Touken Danshi

This was actually really hard to put together. Even with 10 swords in mind, actually ranking them took me a long time. I imagine if I actually played the game, it would have taken me even longer, so I’m glad that I don’t so at least I’m a little limited in who I can choose. That’s right, I don’t play the game. I’m basically a fan through the musicals and stages, so all of these boys have featured in one or the other (aside from one exception who will be featuring later in 2018) and I’m probably definitely biased by the performances the actors did of them. Don’t judge me! Because of this, the list is liable to change in the future, since new swords are appearing all the time. Honestly, even after looking at this list for so long I’m still a little unsure of the order, but I guess it doesn’t really matter so long as there are 10 in there.

A look back at 2017

2017 comes to an end tomorrow, and as usual I looked back on everything I did this year to write a review of the year. In 2017, I saw lots of stages, had some amazing experiences with my oshi, and fell head over heels in love with a new group. When I looked back on everything I did, I realised that I did so many things and spent so much money, but I have absolutely no regrets. I really hope in 2018 that I can do just as many things and have just as many amazing experiences as I did this year.

If there was one thing I regret from this year is that there were some things I didn’t take many photos from, and many things I didn’t report back on. I hope in 2018 I can do more of this so I have more reports to link to when I make this kind of post at the end of the year.

I chose the above picture as the header image because of how much these boys influenced my year (even though they’re not all there in that picture), but that was definitely not all I did. Here is my 2017…

Touken Ranbu 2.5d Cafe Osaka

On December 27th me and Tina took a day trip to Osaka to go to the 2.5d Cafe there.

The interior of the cafe was basically the same as the one in Tokyo (I’m certain they just cleared out all of the decor and equipment from the one there and shipped it all to Osaka) except that thankfully it was all on one floor and therefore did not have those horrible wooden slippery steps. The picture at the top of this post is Mikazuki and Kogitsunemaru’s outfits that were on display in the cafe. We were lucky enough to be first to enter the room, so we were able to claim the table right in front of them.
