I am Taroutachi. As you can see from my appearance, my large size makes it so that humans should not have been able to use me. Thus, I was a sword dedicated to the gods.
... however, there was once a human who used me in actual combat.
What on earth was he...?
The person Taroutachi is talking about is 真柄直隆 (Magara Naotaka), an Asakura clan general from the Sengoku period. It was said that he could swing Taroutachi (221cm and 4.5kg) over his head many times effortlessly, and could even use it on horseback!
... My, my. To be called into this world... I am Taroutachi. I am a sword made for combat that humans should never be able to use.
Oh my, is there something happening on the ground?
The wording here implies Taroutachi is speaking as someone in heaven.
Touken Ranbu is starting.
You could say that Jiroutachi is rather close to this present world. Meanwhile, I...
I am a sword that cannot be used by anyone -- in other words, a sword that cannot be said to exist in this world. Am I wrong?
I rarely consider the goings-on of the earth below.
Like this, it is as it always has been...
The body I have now is, in a sense, a part of this world as well, so... this kind of thing does happen.

I'm sorry. I'm currently in the middle of purification.
Citadel (Kiwame sendoff)
There's not need to worry. You'll meet again soon.
The "ha" here is not a laugh, but an affirmation used by people in the army (the equivalent of "yes, sir!")
Master, can you truly handle me?
Armor of the present world, hm? Now then...
It would be nice if I could handle this well, but.
My physique is like this, you see.
It's alright, I won't disappear during the expedition.
Expedition Completed (Leader of Expedition Party)
Expedition Completed (Leader of Primary Party)
The troops of the expedition have returned.
A new sword has joined us.
Repairs (minor injury)
I will go for some light repairs.
Repairs (medium/severe injury)
I've collected a few too many impurities, hm?
My divine powers have been elevated.
Would it not be better to check on the mission details?
Hmmm... This is the state of the world now, is it?
If you take me with you, will it not be cramped in the store?
Front Lines & Battles
It seems the day I once again concern myself with earthly battles has come. How surprising.
Please gather details on the situation. From there we will consider how to best approach it.
Now, let's interfere with the present world, shall we?
I'll have you show me the war tactics of this world.
My strikes are as storms!
The warriors of the present world... aren't half bad, either...!
Take this: my peerless gale!
The only thing remaining is to pray to the gods, hm...? It can't be helped.
After this point lies a realm of impurity, are you prepared?
As my spiritual level grows, it's as if I pull further and further away from the present...
Well then... am I returning to the heavens above...? Such a short, earthly existence...
Internal Affairs Please go here for special Internal Affairs interactions
... how frustrating. Animals are afraid of large things, aren't they...
For the time being, I have done all that I could have done. However...
I have no agricultural powers...
From time to time, it's good to engage in simple physical labour.
Now, come. I am right here!
Was this experience of use to you?
New Year's Greeting
Now then, the beginning of a new year is upon us.
Touken Ranbu's First Year Anniversary (2016)
It's now been a year. With this citadel gathering tsukumogami, it's become a sacred place of sorts, hasn't it?
Touken Ranbu's Second Year Anniversary (2017)
It's now been two years. In treasuring this anniversary, my divine powers have grown even more.
Saniwa First Year Anniversary
Congratulations on the first anniversary of your inauguration. Please continue to perservere.
Saniwa Second Year Anniversary
Congratulations on the second anniversary of your inauguration. You who command a great number of tsukumogami are perhaps, somehow, on the edge of this side.
The [side] referred here is heaven. See Taroutachi's Login (loading) note.
