The release date for the new anime series “Taishou Mebiusline: Chicchai-san season 2” has not been announced. According to some reports, the season 2 is under development. But the creators of the series do not give official information about the work on the continuation of the series.
Anime events unfold in the early twentieth century in Japan during the Taisho era, which in Japanese means “great justice” (1912 – 1926). It is during this historical period of the First World War, the aggravation of the conflict with China and the beginning of the conflict with the USSR.
In the courtyard of 1923. Hiiragi Kyochiro is a young cadet who came to Tokyo to study at the university and return to his small village as a literate person. But he has to take off his rose-colored glasses and face the harsh reality of army military life, greed, the thirst for power … Because somebody already dreams of using Kyochiro and his abilities (by the way, the hero is able to see spirits) for his own purposes! Conspiracies at the court are becoming more and more intense, and the future of the Japanese empire is slowly beginning to change …
- Kyochiro Hiiragi is the main character, a young guy who is going to conquer the capital from the Japanese province. Young, but in comparison with his peers thinks in an adult way, judiciously and tries not to commit rash acts. He is full of good intentions and inherently quite soft and good-natured. During his trip to Tokyo, he makes up a family heirloom – a sword that is handed down to the family of Hiiragi by heredity.
- Misaki is a mysterious long-haired man who asks Kyochiro not to participate in armed dismantlings. Misaki is not his real name. Usually appears when Kyochiro needs help.
- Shigure – formerly served in the army, but was expelled from her ranks. He is against the army, because of what is interested in Kyochiro.
- Iori Senge is an officer who plans to use evil spirits for the country’s purposes, so he is interested in Kyochiro, who is able to see the supernatural. Very cruel man.
- Kai Tateybayashi – commander of the imperial army. Just like Kyochiro is able to see ghosts. Does everything to protect the country, so he believes that the victims in this case can not be avoided. Brave, strong spirit and strong man.
- Kahoru Ise and Kaoru Ise are twin brothers subordinate to Tatebaii. The older brother, Kahoru, worries about the younger and completely depends on him. Earlier, being completely healthy, I wore a blindfold on my eye to support my brother morally, but I had to take it off because they were all mixed up. The youngest, Kaoru, always acts in concert with his older brother, but is more cruel than that of Kahor. He lost his eye because of the explosion, wears a bandage.
- Yuma is a large, short-spoken man with an unflappable face. Previously, he collaborated with Shigure, but then moved to the detachment of Tatebayashi, because of which Shigure and his associates consider him a traitor. Hume is worried because he joined the detachment of Tatebayashi for the sake of a good goal: to help him find the souls of lost comrades and best friend.
- In 2016, the visual novel took the second place in Japan in the rating of the best BLVN (visual novels with the boy’s love theme).
- A computer game, based on which the anime is filmed, contains frank scenes between men and other topics that are not intended for persons under the age of 18 and are particularly sensitive.
- All anime series are ONA format and last no more than 5 minutes. Fans are angry and puzzled, and the creators benefit: the more the interest in history is kindled, the more purchases of visual novels, games and game attributes.
- In 2015, two audio tracks (cd-drama – voice recording of visual novels, manga, comics) were released, which are a combination of two games: directly TAISHOU MEBIUSLINE and TOKYO ONMYOUJI. In this version of the audio track Koychiro with the protagonist of the second game named Ray live in our world.
- The novel reveals the essence of Misaki: in fact, he is the deity of the peach tree – Okamudzumi no Mikoto. But it is not the main form, it is its “incarnation” (in Shinto it is believed that if God is worshiped in another temple, his soul is divided and remains to protect the new temple).
- The name “Hiiragi” sounds the same as the name of the plant “osmanthus versatile” – it is an evergreen shrub bush. From ancient times people believed that this plant expels evil spirits. Flowers Osmanthus symbolically decorate the handle of the sword Kyoichiro, his cap and belt dress.
- Twins Ise are the only characters who do not have a separate story line in the main otme game.
- A strong influence on the story of Taishou Mebiusline was provided by the mystical novel of the Japanese writer Hiroshi Aramaty “Teito Monogatari” (“The Metropolitan History”).
- The name of the brothers Ise comes from the name of Ise Dzingu, the main sanctuary of the Japanese sun goddess Amaterasu, the head of the pantheon of Shinto gods and the ancestor of the family of all emperors. In the military era of Taisho, the cult of the emperor as a divine descendant Amaterasu was actively popularized.
- Artist of the tale of “Taishou Mebiusline: Chicchai-san season 2” is Miyake Masakazu, who worked on creating a lot of popular anime series: “Two-faced sister Umaru”, “Homeless God”, “More Than Lovers”, “Log Horizon”, “Sunset of Mankind”, “Street Alfa “, and directed by Shun Watanabe, the author of the following masterpieces:” Love Trouble “,” The Way of the Asa “,” The Masters of the Sword Online “,” The Magi: the Kingdom of Magic “,” The Diary of the Future “,” Naruto “(film eighth and seventh ).
