Joran: The Princess of Snow and Blood is an animated series created by Bakken Records. The series is set in the 64th year of the Meiji era (1931 A.D.). An era when japan was still ruled under a powerful and tyrant monarch family instead of having a democracy. The Meiji era is a time period in Japan’s history that saw rapid colonization of the country. The invasion of western cultures led to a considerate increase in both industrialization and technology. The series examines the concept of what if Tokugawa Yoshinobu hadn’t stepped down as the king and still ruled Japan as its emperor.
The concept of the series is a bit similar to a top-rated western television – The Man in the high castle, that examined the changes in the world if Hitler had won World War 2.
