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?

So ..I'm a huge fan of the reverse harem and otome game adaptions genre so when I saw this, I was very excited to watch it.
While I was two thirds down I accidentally looked into the reviews and was shocked to see how many people seemed to dislike the ending so I prepared myself for being disappointed.

But all I can say after completing it is that I think this anime was enjoyable through and through.

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