Groove made an announcement via their blog this morning about a very exciting upcoming collaboration series with Touken Ranbu (Wild Dance of Swords) which is an insanely popular card based online game in Japan. Not only is it a popular online game, it has already received one anime adaption Touken Ranbu Hanamaru that aired in Japan this past fall ( it has been licensed in the US by Funimation) and will be receiving anime adaptation called Katsugeki! Touken Ranbu later this year. Various figures including nendoroids and other merchandise have been released over the years, in fact I own the Mikazuki Munechika nendoroid (I’m hoping his character gets made into a doll as a part of the series).
The cast of Touken Ranbu is primarily male which means we will likely see Isuls and Taeyangs prominently featured in the collaboration series, I’m happy to see a series focusing on the boy dolls for once. The first doll in the series will be an Isul I will be on display at Doll Show 48 in Ikebukuro on the 15th. I will be sure to update once more information and/or photos become available.
