Sentai Filmworks has announced that the company has acquired the license for the Bakumatsu Rock anime. The company says it will roll our further digital distribution “soon,” and that there will be a home video release in the future.

The story is set in the Bakumatsu era, at the end of the shoguns’ rule over Japan in the middle of the 19th century. The Tokugawa shogunate use the brainwashing “Heaven’s Songs” by the top idols in Shinsengumi to subjugate the country and its people. In this Japan, writing or singing any songs besides the “Heaven’s Songs” is a capital offense. Ryōma Sakamoto and the other rockers rise up and change the world with rock ‘n’ roll for freedom and justice.
