Meiji Gekken: 1874 Review — D-

It’s the Meiji era.

This had a decent first episode, which ended with the main character becoming a cop. I should have dropped it then and there. Could have just read Harry Potter if I wanted that shit, which at least had the decency to make Harry a cop in the last chapter and not force us to watch it. Meiji Gekken went nowhere fast and I don’t know what the point was. I could barely even be bothered to follow the story in a cursory manner.

It had a historical fiction setup which I love that it squandered on who knows what. It was incapable of keeping my attention. That’s partly on me but mostly on the show.

  • Storytelling – F – I don’t even know what the story was.
  • Voice – D – Felt soulless.
  • Characters – D – What I really hate is how they kind of made the main character seem interesting in episode one, then completely forgot everything that made him interesting.
  • Attention Grab – F – Lost all interest after the first few episodes.
  • Production – D – Lacking.
  • Overall – D-
