Although traumatized by witnessing the murder of his parents by one of the Choushuu, Ichimura Tetsunosuke's thirst for revenge lead him to desire strength. At the age of 15, Tetsunosuke approached the Shinsengumi, wanting to become one of its members. However, Tetsunosuke lacked the skill, mind and will to emotionlessly cut down whoever threatened peace and the Shinsengumi. Even with the support of his brother Tatsunosuke and his newfound friends of the Shinsengumi, little did Tetsunosuke know the blood and pain he would have to face being part of this historical group.

Peace Maker Kurogane is a historical action series based around the Shinsengumi; the Japanese police force active in the Edo period, perhaps now popularised in the West by the success of Gintama. Like many of its anime counterparts, the series is only loosely based on actual events, with much of the material taking an episodic, comedic route.

We follow Tetsunosuke, a young boy set on joining the Shinsengumi in an attempt to seek revenge on the man who killed his parents two years earlier. As far as revenge plots go; it's fairly typical, standard fare. As events heat up, however, the story begins to fall in read more

Wanna hear random? I was voting in a hot anime guys poll and I didn't recognize one of the candidates, so I looked him up (it was Susumu). And stumbled here. I read the synopsis, glanced at the rating, read the review... and thought, "Eh, why not give it a chance?" I think you should be thinking the same thing. ;)

Right now, I think my opinion is a little colored by how surprised I was by this anime. As I chain-watched episodes of this show, I kept on thinking things like: "Wow, I am actually really enjoying this"; "Why didn't read more

Well this is my first review and everything might had been said but I think I'll try my best.

Story: It's one of the two best anime I've seen on the beggining of the Meiji area in Japan around 1865. In "Rurouni Kenshin: Tsuiokuhen", the side of the Ishin Patriots is presented, but in Peace Maker, it's the side of the Shogun clans. Everything happens in a small periode of time from the encounter wiht the Shinsengumi to the end.

Art: Well, if you don't like blood, violence, injuries, or ... you won't like it so much, but it's well done. It's more colorfull than some violence read more

Let me say right now if you are fan of the Shinsengumi or any type of samurai anime then Peacemaker Kurogane is a series you must check out.

Story: the story is about a young boy named Tetsunosuke Ichimura who wants to join a group of samurai working for the shogun known as the Shinsengumi to avenge the death of his parents who were killed by a member of the shinsengumi's enemies known as the Choshu clan. But because of his short stature, bratty personality, and lack of experience he is assigned to be the personal servant of the groups vice commander Hijikata Toshizou. But after read more
