Anime Review: Meiji Tokyo Renka (2 stars)
Genre: Fantasy, Historical, Shoujo, Romance
Rating: 2 stars
People are creeped out by Mei because she can see and speak to spirits, she distances herself away from people. After she helps with a magic trick, she is transported to another place, Meiji era tokyo where she meets Rintaro (Mori Ougai) and Syunso.
I do like the animation style and soft classical music. Wow, this reverse harem has a ton of bishounen. This anime made me cringe quite a lot LOL, and I kept stopping to focus on reading instead. It’s very clear who is the endgame couple, but out of a lot of reverse harem anime, this one was one of the really cringey ones for me.
Its kinda too similar to a lot of other reverse harem anime and it didn’t set itself aside, I think phantom in the twilight did it better? Also, I kept stopping this anime to do other things like read which really shows that this anime didn’t capture me at all. Okay, once episode 9 hit, there is definitely more drama.
Mei is really optimistic and honestly I wanted to give this anime a one star, but this ending might change my mind. It was okay, but not that interesting to keep my attention. I feel that there will be a season 2 based on the ending though, which I definitely will not watch.
