In the far future, humans abandon a devastated Earth and traveled to outer space. However, due to unknown phenomenon that prevents them from traveling into space, humanity returns to Earth only to find it inhospitable except for Japan.

To accomodate the entire human population, pocket dimensions are created around Japan to house in the populace. In order to find a way to return to outer space, the humans began reenacting human history according to the Holy book Testament. But in the year 1413 of the Testament Era, the nations of the pocket dimensions invade and conquer Japan, dividing the territory into feudal fiefdoms and forcing the original inhabitants of Japan to leave.

It is now the year 1648 of the Testament Era, the refugees of Japan now live in the city ship Musashi, where it constantly travels around Japan while being watched by the Testament Union, the authority that runs the re-enactment of history. However, rumors of an apocalypse and war begins to spread when the Testament stops revealing what happens next after 1648.

Taking advantage of this situation, Toori Aoi, head of Musashi Ariadust Academy's Supreme Federation and President of the student council, leads his fellow classmates to use this opportunity to regain their homeland.

"Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere" is a very difficult anime to describe.

It synthesizes humor, action, and romance together into a series where each element is an irreplaceable part of the dynamic and story. Because it combines many different elements together at once it can easily bewilder the viewer and leave them in a position where they have little clue of where it is going. For some this may be a significant flaw and hold back their enjoyment while for others it may pave the way for an interesting and unpredictable story. This is definitely not an anime for everybody.

The story begins in a read more

This particular Anime started off on the wrong foot but in the end left me looking forward to the second season. The first four episodes are heavy handed and will be a challenge for some to get through. The best way to put it is, this Anime is set up like most Historical dramas are. The start of the storyline is about setting up the history for those who don't know anything about the history, because otherwise the viewer would find themselves confused.

However, unlike most Historical dramas just about any fan of Historical Fiction will be left in the dark because this particular show read more

I really like this anime~

I like the art, the music, the character's appearance/personalities, and the action! These are the things that'll bring me back to it for a nice watch while eating a pack of noodles, as it takes me through the rounds of its action and unique art style of the people! What I’ll sing and make jokes about to myself from time to time! "Yeah, kick some butt! Show me more scenes of honor and battle! Relate to how I like visual novels! Pour more “dolls” and mechas on me! A merging of zany characters, intelligent characters, and zany-Intelligent characters? Count me in!! read more

Kyoukaisenjou no Horizon. This anime definitely went under radar and is one of those that is not easy for the viewers to get into.It has a large terminology that is just thrown at you such as "Tes" and "Jud" as well as a massive cast of characters and a fairly complex background that would leave most viewers more confused after the first episode then Guilty Crowns plot holes. However despite all this, I can't stop loving this anime.

The main story arc in Horizon is pretty straightforward and simple. The best part about the story is the "battles". The battles in Kyoukaisenjou no Horizon is read more

History is recreated in the far future combining both western and eastern periods of war with lots of different historical figures from different time periods

Differences: Nobunaga the Fool is more action and less comedy with ecchi than Horizon and also doesn't have strange speaking patterns
watching Kyoukaisenjou no Horizon is like watching chrome shelled regios, why? they have the same action, student battle, many character or unexpected character that you dont know what they are allies or foe.

Both are about politics, fast dialogue and fast fighting.
-A lot of discussions on Politics, Economics and Strategy.
-A lot of likable characters.
The MC are identical becouse they are both pervs and they both have good female characters around them.
Both have students with advanced battle equipment, and something like a mecha style and very much oppai to see (oh wait, that's not the point)
