A new key visual (above) and a new preview video (below) have been revealed for BAKUMATSU, an upcoming TV anime based on the historical romance simulation smart phone game developed by FuRyu in which a woman from modern day Japan time-slips back to the Edo period and finds herself the object of affection for twelve rival samurai. The new trailer highlights the theme song, “Spiral Maze” by MIKOTO.
The BAKUMATSU TV anime features an original story set during the end of the Edo period, where the reigning shogun is said to possess a legendary treasure known as the “Jishingi” that gives him the ability to manipulate the flow of time. Samurai warrior Takasugi Shinsaku and his allies lead a coup to capture this treasure, but their efforts are thwarted, and they find themselves transported to an alternate time-line where the country is ruled by a sinister, masked shogun known as Mugensai.
BAKUMATSU is directed by Masaki Watanabe and features animation production by Studio Deen. The series will broadcast on TBS (Tokyo Broadcasting System) and BS-TBS beginning on October 04, 2018.
