Bakumatsu Gijinden Roman
Released Year : 2013
No of Episodes : 7+ (Ongoing)
Genre : Fantasy, Historical
Plot : The stage is the close of the Edo period, an age when, not unlike our own time, both natural and man-made disasters left chaos in their wake. Manjiro makes a living helping the people of the troubled capital city, but behind the scenes, he also works in secret to take back precious belongings stolen from the people by unjust political powers and conspiratorial menaces. The people call him "Get-backer Roman."
Our Review : Its too soon to review this anime but as far as we can see that the pilot was absolutely all over the place. What initially looked like it was going to be the simple story of a Robin Hood-like hero in the Meiji Restoration, somehow leads to the sublimely-absurd sight of that same character transforming into a superhero and chopping an entire fortress in half with his bare hand as if it were a stack of plywood. I’m still pretty confused about how we got from Point A to Point C but, holy shit, if I wasn’t outrageously entertained along the way.
