An action-packed new trailer has been published for BAKUMATSU Crisis, the upcoming sequel series to BAKUMATSU, a TV anime adaptation based on the otome smart phone game by FuRyu about handsome samurai who are transported to an alternate reality by a time-warping artifact.
BAKUMATSU Crisis is directed by Mitsutoshi Satou and features animation production by Studio Deen. Crunchyroll currently streams BAKUMATSU (which is directed by Masaki Watanabe), and describes the story of the series as follows:
This story takes place during the Bakumatsu era in Japan. Japan’s history looked bleak during this time, and many passionate men fought over hegemony within the country, various ideals in their hearts. Shinsaku Takasugi, a samurai warrior from Choshu, attempts to sneak onto a ship run by Yoshinobu Tokugawa, his partner Kogoro Katsura at his side. Takasugi and Katsura aim to steal a legendary treasure that is said to have the ability to control time: the pocket watch “Jishingi.” However, the moment they obtain the watch, it is stolen from them by a woman dressed in black.
