After the initial conflict, Touken Danshi is contacted by the government of the time and sent on a mission into the war-torn Sengoku era, where the revision of Japanese history is already underway. Can the Touken Danshi heroes restore order while restoring the original timeline? Touken Danshi’s tough but beautiful fights are finally a reality!
