Anime set in the Edo period is the new trend for 2010?
That's the xx time I heard this.

Well, the art and soundtrack should be good anyway, even if the rest of the anime leaves a bit to be desired.

I'm not surprised about the content one bit. Looking forward to it, though. I'd like if they took on more wth...? ventures that are uncharacteristic of them. Those are always a pleasure to watch. But Edo era action? Not surprised.
