On May 15, 2022, during a stage production of Touken Ranbu titled Kiden Ikusa Sekai no Kabuki at Ochiakigaku at Shin Kabukiza in Osaka, it was announced that Touken Ranbu: Kyoden Burning Honnoji would be adapted from a stage play to an anime adaptation.

Touken Ranbu: Kyoden Burning Honnoji was first staged in 2016 and the story revolved around the Japanese sword personified as Fudo Komitsu that was gifted to Mori Ranmaru by Nobunaga Oda. Kenichi Suemitsu, who wrote and directed the film, will be in charge of series composition and script for the anime version. His airtime is not yet known.

It was also announced that a new stage play focusing on the character Kunihiro, titled Stage Touken Ranbu: Yamanbagiri Kunihiro Solo Line (Japanese Sword History) is in the works for February 2023. Hiroki Nanami plays Kasen Kanesada and Sho Ayanaji plays Ogurikara. The play will be performed in Tokyo, Kyoto and Fukuoka. In the summer a 7th Anniversary celebration for Stage Touken Ranbu is held.

2.5D anime musicals are emerging as a new trend in Japan

Stage Touken Ranbu is a series of 2.5D stage plays co-produced by Marvelous Entertainment and, inspired by the online browser game Touken Ranbu. Kenichi Suemitsu has directed all the plays in this series so far. The 2.5D stage plays announced in 2015 should not be confused with the simultaneously announced musical: Touken Ranbu.

What are 2.5D stay games? A 2.5 dimensional musical is a type of modern Japanese musical theater production based solely on popular Japanese anime, manga, or video games. The term 2.5D musical was coined to describe 2D anime stories that come to life.

In 2013, around 70 2.5D musicals were produced, reaching 1.6 million people (most of them young women in their teens and 20s). Starring in a 2.5D musical is often seen as the starting point in a young Japanese actor’s career.

Touken Ranbu switches from anime to real life and now from real life to anime

2.5D musicals stand out from other anime musical adaptations by paying special attention to detail, such as the costumes, makeup (appearance) and even the personalities (and funny expressions) of the characters that the actors and Actresses pose as closely as possible to the original anime characters. The goal is for the actor or actress to look like an anime character that has literally come to life. Special effects and stunts are used to recreate the fantasy worlds of anime.

The lyrics of the songs sung in the musicals are usually written by the directors. Recently, many 2.5D musicals have featured the use of projection mapping, where backgrounds and special effects are projected onto the stage and screens.

The first stage play in the Touken Ranbu franchise ran from May 3, 2016 to May 20, 2016 and was titled Kyo-den: Moyuru Honnoji. On May 20, 2016, the play was also broadcast live in 60 theaters in Taiwan and Hong Kong, drawing over 40,000 viewers.

Due to the success of this play, a spin-off production called Kyoden: Moyuru Honnoji: Saien ran from December 15, 2016 to January 17, 2017. There have been several other 2.5D plays based on the Touken Ranbu franchise.
