The stage is the close of the Edo period, an age when, not unlike our own time, both natural and man-made disasters left chaos in their wake. Manjiro makes a living helping the people of the troubled capital city, but behind the scenes, he also works in secret to take back precious belongings stolen from the people by unjust political powers and conspiratorial menaces. The people call him "Get-backer Roman."

Bakumatsu Gijinden Roman is an anime that is based around the mascots of a pachinko game. That would not sound particularly appealing except for the character designs were done by Monkey Punch(Kato Kazuhiko), the artist behind the Lupin III series. If you are familiar with Lupin you probably noticed the similarities in the art style and even the characters looks. Also the anime had Satoshi Hirayama, someone who has worked on a few Lupin movies working on it. So, with such a recognized artists being involved with this anime why do so few people seem interested in it? I will try to answer that with read more

Bueno, was there a time when you're watching some show and saw something that was similar from what you've watched from other shows. Or, do you have no idea that there maybe some scene that were plagiarize, well, this anime was simply what it is, in fact the Chinese have a term for that which they call it " chop suey" literally means mix together, and this anime was a mixture of various scene and spin offs from other shows or anime all loosely combined to form a sort of "Lupin III" like thing. The plot was nice, but the execution was bad, it read more

When I first read about Bakumatsu Gijinden Roman I was excited at the thought of a new show based on the works of Lupin the Third creator, Monkey Punch. Then I saw that it was based off of a Pachinko game and my expectations immediately soured. By reading a synopsis one might even think that this show would be a Lupin ripoff, what with the main character Roman also being a descendent of a known thief, however, that doesn't turn out to be the case either.

Bakumatsu Gijinden Roman tells the story of a man named Roman who goes by Manjiro in order to read more

One of the things about the Crack Fic Genre is that it can be touch and go on how successful the work is at pushing ones willing suspense of disbelief. Many times the work takes the believability issues to far and instead ends up grating on the nerves. This particular Anime though actually doesn't push to far and the stretching of believability is used well for comedic effect. This is what drew me into Bakumatsu Gijinden Roman in the first episode as well as the historical references and it remained through the entire series.

They style used also fits the genre well, not to mention the read more
