Mei Ayazuki is just your ordinary, everyday high-school girl. That is until one night, when the moon is full and red, she’s transported through time to the Meiji Period by Charlie, a self-proclaimed magician.

She ends up in a strange, Meiji-era ‘Tokyo’ where the existence of ghosts is accepted. Led by Charlie, she finally arrives at the Rokumeikan. There, waiting for her to arrive, are the historical figures Ougai Mori, Shunsou Hishida, Otojirou Kawakami, Kyouka Izumi, Gorou Fujita, Yakumo Koizumi, and Tousuke Iwasaki.

Whilst interacting with these men, she discovers she is a Tamayori - someone who can see ghosts - a skill that is highly valued in the Meiji Period. Due to these powers, her relationship with the men begins to change… As she gets to know these handsome men in a new era she just can’t get used to, a love begins to grow within her.

Will Mei be able to return to her time? What will become of her love - a love that crosses the boundaries of time and space?

I honestly made an account just to write a review on this anime. I think this anime is really underrated. It's beautiful, bittersweet, and really deserves a lot more attention. This 12 episode anime made me laugh and cry. That takes a lot to do for me because I usually just smile/grin, but parts of this anime actually made me laugh out loud. I'm a little sad about the ending, but I'm happy with her decision. Throughout this anime, I see a constant theme of "finish what you started." For that, I understand her decision. Hoping there will be a second season. I would really ...

Mixed Feelings
The anime was pretty okay until the last episode it just made my brain hurt and confused. The characters were okay and I liked the sound and the fl but then the ending just destroyed everything. It just does not make sense why she would go back when she's not sure that she can come back to the past. In the future she gets called freak and weird and have no friends but in the other world she gets accepted and found friends and a lover so this doesn't make sense to me.

I'm very disappointed with this anime.

The whole "A Girl can see ghosts and is sent back in time to meet historical figures." is a very interesting premise. Unfortunately, they barely did anything interesting with this set up even toward the end. After the first 2 episodes, the entire premise was poorly explained and then was toss aside in favor of normal daily slice-of-life-with-the-occasional-funny-moments anime. Even when they tried something with the whole Tamayori, the thing just ended the minute it got slightly interesting. Seriously why even bother showing a girl who can see ghosts, how it negatively affected her life, and how there are ghosts ...
