On the eve of Imperial rule in Japan in the mid-19th century, supporters of the Tokugawa shogunate and supporters of the imperial court clash over the country’s leadership and its place in world affairs. Despite being members of clans with opposing political and social views, Touma Kusaka and Keiichirou Akizuki find that they share an interest in foreign cultures and a vision of a more open and progressive Japan. What starts as a meeting of minds eventually blossoms into a romance, but bound by their clan ties and social positions, Kusaka and Akizuki struggle to find happiness as time, distance, political upheaval and the Boshin war conspire to keep them apart.

I felt as if this anime was barely a yaoi and it was just a history lesson. I don't care to learn about Japan's history, I want to see guy on guy. I was very confused throughtout the entire thing, and I got bored pretty fast. It was good, and I liked the romantic levels but it was more focused on what happened with Japan and England and all that in a whole than the couple.  read more
