A comical depiction of the unrest caused by the arrival of Commodore Perry's black ships in 1853, as nationalists and ultra-nationalists fight over who should rule Japan in the name of the emperor (see Oi Ryoma!). As the rival domains of Satsuma and Choshu jostle for power, the Shinsengumi organization becomes the emperor's "protectors" in Kyoto. Hyped on release as "the Shinsengumi as you've never seen them before," somewhat ironically since anime never seems to have portrayed the Shinsengumi as the vigilante extremists they actually were. Similarly sanitized versions would appear in Zeguy and in Nagisa Oshima's live-action Gohatto (2000), which romanticized them as sexually confused pretty-boys.
