*Spoiler Free*

To make episodes derived from 100 compiled Japanese poetry throughout the olden era Japan is not an easy job to do: it either can be super dry and boring, or difficult to understand as the major audience of who watches the anime do not have a background history of Japanese culture.

Hi everyone!

Let's start :
The 13 episodes are episodic, so each one has a diffrent stroy to tell (understand a different poem to illustrate), but some characters are reccurent and you get to know them and their stories.
