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.

Loosely based on Jules Vernes' 20000 Leagues Under the Sea.
silent killer's rating:
late 19th century France
silent killer's rating:

Presumably during WW2. I say presumably because it anthropomorphizes all the countries involved in this great conflict.
1953. Showa Era Japan.
silent killer's rating:
1962

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.

silent killer's rating:

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.
