The Taishou era didn't end in 15 years, but went on for another 25. In order to protect her waning family, a girl resolves to marry a man she doesn't even know the name of. However, just before the marriage was to take place, the girl's younger brother mysteriously committed suicide by self-immolation and was found holding an old book in his hands. Appearing before the bewildered young girl was the "Imperial Library Intelligence Asset Management Bureau," more commonly referred to as "Fukurou." According to these men, there exists "Maremono," which are books that greatly affect their readers. On top of that, ever since the incident involving the girl's younger brother, she unwittingly gains the ability to see "Auras" (the sentiments of the Maremono which manifest as bright lights and are usually invisible to humans). It was as though fate were trying to drag the young girl in its flames. And then, even though apprehensive, the girl chooses to venture outside her bird cage. Jealousy, hatred, scorn, compassion, and love. What awaited the girl was the darkness of betrayal that had already begun to bewitchingly inlay the imperial capital. Toyed by and swayed within that darkness, will the young girl finally reach the truth after her struggles, or...?

This anime makes you WANT to play the otome game to find out what happens next in the story but also tells you enough about each character and their backstory. Their personalities were well portrayed and their behaviours are explained, even if briefly.

I liked that you can see character development / resolving their own problems in this anime, you can see that they have been enlightened and learned to see things in a new perspective.

Overall I enjoyed the plot - there were some episodes where they talk a bit too much between the baddies (the conversation is quite predicatble so I did skip a bit).

Mixed Feelings
I watched this anime when it first came out a couple of seasons ago and as someone who enjoys the occasional reverse harem anime this one is pretty bad. There wasn`t much appealing about it, it`s probably for the best if you just skip this one.

UHH the thing wants me to actually write a longer review about it so I guess I have to talk about it more??

The characters were dry as heck and the main harem wasn`t interesting whatsoever in my opinion, at least from what I remember about it from watching it a couple months ago. Also the plot is pretty lack luster ...

This anime had a very interesting premise about magical cursed books as seen in the synopsis.However,this anime fails to make use of its premise and becomes an absolutely dreadful show.The few good points of the show would be its decent music and art,plus the fact that it is so bad that it is comedic.Other than that,if you are here for a deep and intriguing plot,you have come to the wrong place.

As usual from a reverse-harem anime,we have boring one-dimensional male characters.This is especially so in this anime as most of the cast cannot even identify cursed tomes,and they cannot even be security men well,making this ...
