I'm Tsurumaru Kuninaga. Made in the Heian era, I've been passed from owner to owner up until now. Well, that shows just how renowned I am.
...Though, I can't approve of grave-robbing or stealing from shrines out of desire for me...
Yo. I'm Tsurumaru Kuninaga. Are you surprised that somebody like me came here so suddenly?
The preparation is going great...
Touken Ranbu, let's start.
I wonder what surprises are awaiting me today?
わっ！…あっはははは！ 驚いたか？ ああ、いやいや、すまんすまん
Waa! ...Ahahahahah! Are you surprised? Ah, no no, my bad, my bad.
My clothes being all white is a good thing. When they get dyed red during battle, I look like a crane, don't I?
Surprises are essential in life. If everything goes according to how it's planned, the heart will die earlier.
Goodness, I could die of boredom.
I might be all red and white now, but staying like this isn't much of a surprise...!

...Well now, how can I make a surprising entrance...?
Citadel (Kiwame sendoff)
What, him? He's going to come back soon and surprise us like whoa.
Leave it to me. I'll cut down the vanguards and seize the atmosphere.
Ah, I shall bring you surprising results.
It's also possible to surprise with the equipment's appearance...
It's troubling me on whether war tools need to be surprising or not.
Well, being able to trust your equipment comes first. Surprises can come second, I suppose.
Ha! I'll go surprise the people at the expedition site too!
Expedition Completed (Leader of Expedition Party)
I've returned. Want to hear stories of my travels?
Expedition Completed (Leader of Primary Party)
They've returned. Now how should I surprise them?
Well now! Has a newcomer arrived?
Repairs (minor injury)
I'll go change. Dirt stands out on white clothes.
Repairs (medium/severe injury)
Staying in these clothes will look unshapely.
Even if the tasks are always the same everyday, you shouldn't neglect them.
You got a letter, you know? Maybe it's a love letter?
Oh my. If you're going to send me a present, you probably shouldn't discuss it with me beforehand, huh?
Front Lines & Battles
Gotcha. Don't worry about it and leave it to me.
Oh, not bad. A small surprise like this is nice too.
Is there a hole in their lineup? I'd like to launch a surprise attack if that's the case.
Now then, it's the start of the grand stage!
Haahaha! Well then, let me surprise you.
Unexpected, was it? You're wide open!
I’ll spoil you a little and at least let you get a hit in.
Nice... you surprised me...!
You've seen me dyed in red and white... even if you die right after, you should celebrate it.
Well now... if I lose right here, there won't be surprises or anything else, right!
Honestly… Why do you look like you want to say, “Oh, so it’s this sort of stronghold.”
Oh! Now this is a surprise.
No, no, it's too early to change my outfit. Even like this, I still have things I haven't shown you yet.
What a bummer...with these robes dyed completely in red... I don't resemble a crane anymore.

This is surprising. A blade doing horse duty, huh?
My my, I was surprised...
Hahaha. Having a katana do field work. That's certainly surprising.
What's next? What kind of dumb work are you thinking of making me do?
Throwing ourselves at each other any way we want will be advantageous, right?
Ah, with this, I won't be surprised even by a sneak attack, right?
New Year's Greeting
Well now, since everyone's absorbed with drinking sake let's give them a surprise. Want to join me?
Touken Ranbu's First Year Anniversary (2016)
There's nothing prepared for today. At any rate, it's the first anniversary. There's nothing I can do to beat that surprise!
Touken Ranbu's Second Year Anniversary (2017)
Since it's the second anniversary, it's still too early to sum things up. After all, from tomorrow onwards I guess we'll be waiting for new surprises.
Saniwa First Year Anniversary
Oh~ So it's been a year since you've arrived? Now that's surprising!
Saniwa Second Year Anniversary
Wah! ...As expected from Master on the second anniversary. Won't even bat an eye!
