An original series produced by Geno Studio (Golden Kamuy), Shine On! Bakumatsu Bad Boys! is directed and written by Tetsuo Hirakawa (Grimoire of Zero), with Hiroyuki Takei’s (Shaman King manga) original character designs adapted for animation by Masafumi Yokota (The Ancient Magus’ Bride animation director).
Crunchyroll announced earlier this week that they will be simulcasting the series after an early premiere at Anime Expo, describing it as such:
In the era when samurai controlled Japan… The Masked Demons annihilated all but one member of the Shinsengumi, who had worked to maintain the peace and public order in Kyoto.
Seven criminals are chosen as substitutes for the deceased Shinsengumi members, and they are led by Ichibanboshi, whose parents were also killed by the Masked Demons. He becomes a substitute for Commander Isami Kondo and goes after the Masked Demons with the other substitutes to avenge his parents’ deaths.
Former criminals rise up to restore peace and order as their crazy story begins!
Now is the time to shine the brightest!
The anime is scheduled to begin airing in Japan on July 8.
