Some time around the mid 1600's to 1720's. Maybe. Basing this off of the sword school Jin uses and the fact there are still hidden christians roaming about the main island of Japan.

1895 England

Just goes to show that having an unhealthy obsession may not always be a bad thing. In this case, the writers obsession with Victorian Era England.

Due to slight differences in historical happenings, starting with Britain never having come under the rule of The Roman Empire, their technology is roughly 50 years ahead of our own at the time. Incidentally, they use a different calendar from ours. It's 2017 atb(Acension Throne Brittania) by their calendar.

I suppose these could be considered period shows since they don't take place in the era they were animated in. Future anime are not included in this list.

Where is Fullmetal Alchemist(Alternate 1800's)? and Code Geass...(alternate 1950's)
Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Feb 6 20:07
I had considered Fullmetal Alchemist, but it's not quite our Earth. The first FMA movie might fit. I may have to revise my list. As for Code Geass. I just hadn't watched it at the time I made my list.

Anyone else have any series they think should be on this list? Recommendations are welcome.
