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 LOVED watching this anime as it was ongoing, until I reached the end. The characters are good and the plot isn't bad at all, but literally at the last episode destroyed how I felt about this anime.

Everything was going well in the anime, because the anime is about Mei deciding to stay in a place that she actual enjoys and where people actually like her, or where she is mistreated and she hated. Up until the last episode, episode 12, she decided to leave the Meiji era where she was accepted and had fallen in love! This made me angry that she decided this. read more

If your here for a love story your not going to get what you came for. This anime was very good when it started. Hell I was in tears for a majority of the anime. Then something happened. What happened you ask?

Well we started to get those little feels in our stomach called butterflies. Thats right ladies and gentlemen. The feels that we start to bond with the characters came in to the station full force. Everything was going great till we started to play god!

Have you ever felt that your life was worth more then a parfait? Well this anime takes your read more

Story: The Story is Basic and has Holes.
Art / Animation: The Art is Pleasing to look at but not distinct.
Sound: The Sound is Great.
Characters: All Characters are flat Characters. Including our protagonist.

After Mei gets sent back to the past, we get to spend time with the characters getting to know each other before The next Full Moon Comes that can send Mei back Home. Every episode or two, one of the men has a problem that has to be resolved with Mei's Help.

Unfortunately, the characters, which are essential to make a good Romance or Comedy, are all Flat characters that are completely personified by their read more

At first, this seems just like any generic visual novel adaptation...until I saw who was the director of this show: the legendary Akitarou Daichi, famous for most 90s and early 2000s anime (such as Ima, Soko ni Iru Boku, Bokura ga Ita, to name a few). Needless to say, his recent works have been hits and misses, and Meiji Tokyo Renka is no different as a miss.

After a brief stint in going through a life that is in interaction with spirits every now and then, living in isolation, Ayazuki Mei, a simple and not-so-complicated girl, gets tranced by a passing magician, and subsequently, gets sent read more
