Synopsis

The Bakumatsu was an era in which the souls of young men burned with anxiety for their country's future. Takasugi Shinsaku, a soldier of fortune from Choshu, sneaks aboard a government ship with his comrade Katsura Kogorou in search of a mysterious "timepiece" with the power to manipulate time that he fears the government wishes to keep for themselves. Rather than allow such power to fall into the wrong hands, Takasugi plans to destroy the artifact, but having obtained it, the artifact is quickly stolen, forcing the pair to follow the mysterious thief to the seat of government in Kyoto. However, when they arrive in the capital, they discover that the government has been overthrown and the deity Susanoo now reigns in its place. The streets of the city and the people in them are much different than Takasugi and Katsura remembered. The times may have changed but their mission hasn't - Takasugi and Katsura resolve to reset time and save their nation from the nefarious forces trying to hijack it.

I chose to watch this anime as I've started going through a huge phase of loving the history of the bakumatsu period of Japan. First glance, the show looks colourful, the boys look pretty, and the plot line doesn't sound so bad. But that's where it gets you. You can see all my comments on kissanime and how much shade I give it every episode, eventually my comments saying "Me watching this show is now a running gag I have with myself." And that's exactly what this show was; a joke.

Playing with the element of time in any show has to be done well. It read more

I may have loved this anime because I like Hakuoki. I was not bored. It was nice to watch. The story of the anime was beautiful. I was very happy when I heard about the 2nd season.And excited. Drawings are good. I love Shinsengumi samurai. Drawings are different from Hakuoki in this anime. I have my favorite voices. I have favorite seiyu.

Thanks for this lovely anime. :)


Bu anime'yi sevmiş olabilirim çünkü Hakuoki'yi seviyorum. Ben sıkılmadım. İzlemesi güzeldi. Anime hikayesi güzeldi. 2. Sezonu duyduğumda çok mutlu oldum.Ve heyecanlandım. Çizimler iyi. Shinsengumi samuraylarını seviyorum. Çizimleri bu anime'de Hakuoki'den farklı. Sevdiğim seslendirmenler var.

Bu güzel anime için teşekkürler. :)

Yet another gender-targeting anime series I guess... (How many has it been?)

And out of the gender-focus based shows of 2018, Spring's Nil Admirari is my clear favourite, while Senjuushi and others like this are watchable, just that there's nothing pretty much to say about it. Heck, this really isn't bad, but the amount of hits and misses balance each other out just nicely.

I was constantly trying to think about the similarities between this and other relevant series to it for a long 3 months, and yeap, this has similar backbones to the Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru series - Evil forces pull the Steins;Gate troupe of turning read more
