Broccoli first launched Meiji Tokyo Renka as a mobile game in 2011. It would then go on to become one of the most successful otome games ever. It first received an anime film in 2015, before getting its current TV anime this season.
The otome game follows ordinary high school student Mei Ayazuki, who one day gets transported to the Meiji period by a mysterious magician named Charlie. There, she meets plenty of historical figures… who somehow fall in love with her.
