On the eve of a new era, Kyoto was in chaos. Different factions were moving at cross-purposes, and with the clash of different ideals, many were resorting to violence to enforce their views. To bring back order to the streets of Kyoto, Shinsengumi – the supposed guardians of peace – were formed.

Its been a long time since we got such historical anime, I was keeping up with “Chiruran Shinsengumi Requiem,” but had to give up on reading it because of my studies. After that i forgot to continue the Manga, But has for the impact and impression it had on me, i thought at that time that, this manga deserves an anime adaptation. If ever this Manga came in Anime form i would love to watch it. And now that wish is getting fulfilled so i am really excited and happy.
