7 cheerful facts on Touken Danshi

“Touken Danshi” are legendary swords that became swordsmen to protect history from the “Historical Retrograde Army.” They live together in a citadel. Every day is an adventure packed with action, mundane moments, and positive memories.  



They say, work hard, play harder. Touken Danshi shows us that life is fleeting. The best way to spend life aside from working is by living it and living by having fun. Positive vibes get you going when laughter surrounds. Play boosts creativity too!



They say sharing is caring. Touken Danshi is proof that generosity goes a long way. Things gain more meaning when we share them with others. May it be a rare four-leaf clover or making a nice cup of tea. It shows that you care because you are willing to part with something you treasure.



They say it’s the thought that counts. Touken Danshi tells us that it’s okay not to be perfect as long as it works (or get things done). There are instances wherein things do not go as planned. You should make the best out of the present circumstance(s) instead of lamenting. Worry not, you are not alone. You have strong swordsmen cheering for you.



They say life comes in big and small packages. Touken Danshi reminds us that seasons, new or old friendships, everyday memories, and many more are great reasons to celebrate. An occasion need not be grand to be meaningful. You will find that by merely saying it’s a celebration adds a little extra into something.

They say what you give multiplies. Touken Danshi teaches us that being selfless is vital to happiness. You must be willing to give up something so to gain more in return. It could be as simple as giving up a turn for a sibling. Or as complicated as taking a chore that one hates the most.



When you treasure a person, you have to accept their good, bad, and ugly sides. Touken Danshi reveals to us that we cannot choose or pick a single aspect of a person. You have to accept them whole—weakness, strength, good and evil. For in doing so, you get to see the person as a whole and begin to (hopefully) understand them.



They say living together is an art. Touken Danshi manifests that being together under one roof has its ups, downs, twists, and turns. At times, you will feel that it’s too much and crowded. However, you will also find comfort that you are not alone. There are people you can make memories all within in a single space.  

There is so much to say about having a house with lots of people in it. If you want to laugh, see bitter-sweet moments, and encounter eye candies, aka Ikemen, feel free to visit the citadel in Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru.
