Bakumatsu Anime's Commercial Streamed

posted on by Karen Ressler
Anime with time-traveling heroine debuts on October 4

FuRyu began streaming a 30-second commercial for Bakumatsu, the television anime of its Renai Bakumatsu Kareshi smartphone game, on Sunday. The video previews MIKOTO's opening song "Spiral Maze."

The anime will premiere on the TBS station on October 4 at 25:58 (effectively, October 5 at 1:58 a.m.), and then it will start on the BS-TBS channel on October 6 at 26:30 (effectively, October 7 at 2:30 a.m.)

In the original game's story, the heroine is in Kyoto for sightseeing when she receives a mysterious pocket watch from a man. The heroine wears the watch and passes through a shrine's torii gate, and she is transported to "another" Bakumatsu era 150 years ago during the final years of the Edo period. The heroine must then try to find a way back home to the present.

While the original app focuses on romance, the anime will be a sci-fi action-adventure series.
