薄桜鬼 〜新選組奇譚〜 is set in the Bakumatsu (late Edo) in the 1860s. The アニメ features the Shinsengumi, a samurai force founded to protect the Shogunate during a time of western opening of the ports. So a time of old vs. new
It is loosely based on the actual Shinsengumi members and is a reverse harem. Also has some yokai (demons) in the アニメ and vampiric tendencies here and there. So not complete historic but has a lot of the real people's names and ranks, and their battles.
BTW the series are in a confusing order because the 秒 came out before the first and are long difficult names but the (storyline) order goes: 薄桜鬼 〜新選組奇譚〜 Reimeiroku 薄桜鬼 〜新選組奇譚〜 Shinsengumi Kitan 薄桜鬼 〜新選組奇譚〜 Hakkesturoku 薄桜鬼 〜新選組奇譚〜 Sekkaroku
Sengoku Basara this アニメ is also based on Sengoku era in the history of feudal Japan.........
all characters in this アニメ were real especially the one in my pic his name is 日付 Masemune.
日付 Masamune was a regional strongman of Japan's Azuchi-Momoyama period through early Edo period. Heir to a long line of powerful daimyo in the Tōhoku region, he went on to found the modern-day city of Sendai.
