Synopsis for Joran: The Princess of Snow and Blood
The anime is set in an alternate history in Japan in 1931, with the Tokugawa shogunate never abolished, and Emperor Meiji never restored to power.
The anime will follow “Nue,” an organization of shogunate executioners who enforce the government.
The story’s description contains intentional historical discrepancies: pointing to the year as the year 64 of the Meiji era (the Meiji era only lasted 45 years until 1912) and mentioning Tokugawa Yoshinobu as the reigning shogun (Tokugawa Yoshinobu died in 1913). Stay tuned for the next update.”
