Third Time’s A Charm With Touken Ranbu Collaboration Glasses Vol. 3

The dashing touken danshi (sword boys) of the Touken Rambu franchise have legions of fans, so it comes as no surprise that a collaboration with eyewear brand JINS and Bandai on a series of beautifully designed eyeglasses was enthusiastically received and sold out within days of its announcement when the first installation came out in 2016. Vol. 2, featuring designs based on another eight touken danshi proved to be just as popular last year. Now, back by popular demand, Volume 3 is here, with online reservations available from September 9th to 24th.

The stars of the third installment are Tsurumaru Kuninaga, Kashuu Kiyomitsu, Yamatonokuni Yasusada, Hyuuga Masamune, Heshikiri Hasebe, Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki, Hotarumaru and Doudanuki Masakuni.

Just as with previous two volumes, the eyeglasses are available either in Wellington or square frames decorated in the colors and motifs of each character, and including their crests at the temples.

For each of the eight pairs of glasses in the collection, the cases are designed in a scroll motif and decorated with colors and patterns that unmistakably identify your selection as representing your favorite touken danshi.
