Got any historical anime you like? Look at this:



Baccano! is a good one.

I really don't consider Morobito to be an historical anime, as it takes place in a mythical kingdom.

I haven't seen the others.

Ones that I would include:

Grave of the Fireflies. A real tearjerker, where a teenage boy cares for his little sister during wartime Japan.

The Wind Rises. Intended by Hayao Miyazaki to be his last film before this former retirement (he's working on a new film), this movie is about the man who designed the Zero. It may not appeal to those who still hold a grudge over Pearl Harbor.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Conqueror of Shamballa. This movie takes up where the original Fullmetal Alchemist left off. Ed is stranded on an alternate Earth, our Earth, in the year 1923. This is the year of Hitler's failed Beer Hall Putsch, and Ed gets caught in the middle trying to save his world as Nazis try to break through the barrier. Ed is reunited with Al, but what about Winry? Anyway, it is a bit of a history lesson for those unfamiliar with the early years of the Nazi movement -- except for the breaking into alternate dimensions part.

I am thinking of one other anime which takes place in France just before the revolution. A French nobleman joins the secret police to find the murderer of his sister. Sis was an accomplished swordswoman, and she occasionally possesses her brother's body when he is faced with a fight. I can't remember the name, but it is loosely based on a real life French nobleman who lived as a woman, and it does give us a look at 18th century Europe.

Your turn.

I just remembered the name -- Le Chevalier D'Eon.
