Tokidoki Rikugou is a history-hating student who flunks out of his Japanese History course; his high school forces him to make up for his failed grade by attending a special museum lecture. Its star exhibit, a vast recreation of the Edo Period, promises to alleviate the delinquent student's poor grades with an elaborate simulation of the Tokugawa Shogunate: the Edo Bakumatsu Walking Tour and Exhibition.

Knowing next to nothing about samurai culture or the times he's walked into, he is quickly surprised to learn of the superstitious nature of Japan during the 1600s. Quickly dismissing the existence of gods and demons, he is shocked when confronted by a demon on a bridge, who attacks the unsuspecting high-schooler. Saved by a mysterious swordsman named Kuchiha, he discovers that he can no longer escape the simulation at the history museum.

Meeting another swordsman named Kon Shinonome, he discovers another contemporary that was trapped in the simulation before him. Quickly adjusting to his new home, Tokidoki must now help protect the village from demons, while uncovering the mystery of both the simulation and the company that created it.

Interesting characters, well drawn and generally enjoyable but the show it self doesn't really get past the introduction stage and ends without really starting anything. I'd only recommend this to you if you intend to read the manga after your done.

Mixed Feelings
Amatsuki would have been interesting story wise, it builds up for a big pay off and creates a very interesting world. Unfortunately it's too short, and leaves you with more questions then answers. The characters are generic, but not in a bad way. Personally the characters are why I enjoyed this anime, (However, since they are still generic I had to give them a 5). I also loved the world it creates, and the way the protag travels to it. I thought it to be a very unique way to do so in a time travel anime.

The art is nice, very clean and colourful. ...

Sit down. Press play. Watch the song and the opening credits. Press pause when it finishes. Congratulations, you just watched the summary of Amatsuki.

As weird as it sounds, the plot of this anime is so small you can actually see all of it in the intro song. And I don’t even mean it repeats on every episode either. It really is just what the intro will show you and nothing more in terms of plot. There is of course a lot more story than just that but it will be nothing but talking and talking and talking some more. And it’s not like talking alone ...
