Looking for anime that takes place in the medieval age
Aug 7, 2010 12:14 PM
In this summer, I finished loads of anime and 2 of them stands out the most of all and its
Full metal alchemist and Spice and Wolf, and i realize that i really like the setting in story.
Its getting quite boring watching those anime that take place in high schools and present time. I went through the recommendation page on both anime and find results that dont really fit my need so I came here to ask for help. Thanks!

Strongly seconding Rurouni Kenshin OVA's and series and Basilisk: Kouga Ninpou Chou.
Zero no tsukaima has medieval elements imbued with fantasy/magic in it. Too bad it's an typical harem fanservice show.
Kazemakase Tsukikage Ran - girls with swords, comedy, characters, relaxing watch, set in Japan when samurais were stilll in place.
Claymore - apparently set in a medieval-like fantasy era. Inferring from others' words, manga is better than anime.
How about shows not set in modern society but in a dated one, like Chrono Crusade, or Senkou no Night Raid?

The 12 Kingdoms
The Vision of Escaflowne
Now, keep in mind that even though both these titles start off in modern times, they very early on switch to that non-present-day setting you wish to see. Also, these two series are must-watches.
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
Green Legend Ran
What's interesting, though, is that despite these anime seeming to have people from the past, it may very well be a kind of future the audience is looking at, though not one they'd expect.

claymore is pretty good
gurren lagaan-it's technically not modern it develops into one but still this is a must see-
samurai deeper kyo
there's a lot. for every school/modern anime there's one that's futuristic/medival. lol hope this helps you out lol
First one I don't really agree with, I don't think the medieval had robots.
The second one took place during Japan's Warring State Era, and it's really amazing. I highly recommend it. (It's also based on a video game, so if you like the anime make sure to buy the games!)
