Before I start discussing these series at all, I want to say that I’ve always been one to avoid any type of historical anime or games. I’ve always thought that they are extremely boring and just for people who are really keen about history. Well after watching these two episodes, I’d like to say take that statement back. I feel bad because I’ve skipped out on so many series that could have ended up on my “favorites” list. When I find some free time, I’m probably going to end up taking a look at some series that I’ve missed. The hard part is knowing where to start. If anyone has any suggestions, then let me know!
