Synopsis of Joran: The princess of snow and blood

The anime is set in an alternate story in Japan in 1931, where the Tokugawa shogunate was never abolished and Emperor Meiji was never brought back to power. The anime will follow the activities of "Nue", an organization of shogunate executioners who enforce the government. The description of the story contains deliberate historical discrepancies: mark the year 64 of the Meiji era (the Meiji era only lasted 45 years until 1912) and mention Tokugawa Yoshinobu as the ruling shogun (Tokugawa Yoshinobu died in 1913).
