Have you heard of Touken Ranbu? No? Well, let us teach you how to be a fujioshi in 2016. For someone who has been surfing the net and looming around the otaku neck of woods for a while, there’s a high chance that you already knew (or not), but let us give you a meta for it. It’s a game that is popular among girls which is centered around a sage (or Saniwa as the game called it), the player, who travels to the past to fight the evil forces and has the ability to animate ancient swords into attractive young men, which is something that’s expected, given its target demographic.


Take Touken Ranbu as a rule 63 version of Kantai Collection. Instead of girl-ships, we have sword-boys and in terms of gameplay, it’s as the epithet above. It’s pretty much the same as an F2P collectible web card games that is running on flash. So, if you’re a seasoned player of KanColle, jumping into Touken Ranbu should be a cinch. Now with that done, let’s get to the crux of this post and that is about first Touken Ranbu convention that is happening in Malaysia and it’s organised by your familiar neighbourhood of anime fraternity, EMiNA Cyberjaya and a bunch of passionate Touken Ranbu enthusiasts.


We have lots of activities in our list during the convention entailing each core elements of Touken Ranbu such as an Art Competition, a Blacksmith Cafe, the Sword Graveyard, the Citadel Photobooth, a Fanfiction Competition, the Sword Runway and much more to come. It’s pretty much self-explanatory of what each of these activities are and by extension, you can visit our facebook page for the followup on the Art Competition. How about cosplaying? We love ’em! In fact, don your best costume on the day itself for the occasion, no restrictions nor limits and there will be aplenty of restrooms nearby for cosplayers to use, both for male and female.

It’s a one day shot of a convention which will be held on 30th January 2016 from 11.00 a.m. ’till 6.00 p.m. in Multimedia University Multipurpose Hall.
