Katsugeki Touken Ranbu Episode 9: Another Mission



I’m not really sure why I’m still watching this show. We’re back to the second unit this week and they travel back and then find out what their mission is (why they aren’t told before departure still confuses me), come up with a kind of plan that of course goes wrong because they just assume things will go their way, and then they fight their way to victory. Great. Just remind me again what the significance of this fight is or why the guy you saved matters or even what the Time Retrograde Army are after other than changing history and maybe we’ll have a plot rather than events.


It isn’t entirely bad though. This episode sees the group fighting again and the fight sequences in this show are gorgeous. We also get something close to a character moment with one of the group which was kind of nice but ultimately didn’t amount to anything.


Part of me still wants to know what the overall story here is supposed to be about and the rest of me is kind of bored with watching these random skirmishes where nothing about the bigger picture is explained. Guess that means I’m going to keep watching.

Thanks for reading.
