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...?

*spoiler free*

I'm an girl who kinda likes gaming and reverse harems, so it's not a big surprise that I've gotten involved in otome-style games in my life. Despite being such a big otaku and otome game fanatic, I have not yet found an anime or manga that really displays the otome aspect in all it's glory-- perhaps I have bad luck, or maybe it's just that it's really difficult to put such a strange game format into a cohesive storyline.

I've seen a lot of the more popular animes of this genre, including Amnesia, Kamagami No Asobi, Diabolik Lovers, and others. As of now, read more

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 read more

“It is the 25th year of the Taishou era (in an alternate setting that’s similar to real-life happenings), where a girl, once caged, has decided to fly out of her comfort zone. With all that’s happening, and a slight twist of fate, this is the story of Kuze Tsugumi and her encounter with cursed tomes, a man-made phenomenon that only the handful could see that strikes the Imperial Capital without question and joins an organization to rid of the tomes that held her life hostage.”

[STORY] - 10/10
This anime's story and plots were very interesting. I really liked the fact that they added a very mysterious vibe in the beginning of episode 1, because it really grabbed my attention. I personally love short animes that have around 12-25 episodes. Unlike other 12 episode animes, this anime really included various details and plot twists in each episode, even though it was so short. This anime was released in 2018 (the year I'm writing this review), so there might be a second season! Although, if there isn't, I wouldn't be disappointed, because the ending left me in tears of joy.

[ART] - 9/10
