    Mei Ayazuki is just your ordinary, everyday high-school girl. That is until one night, when the moon is full and red, she?s transported through time to the Meiji Period by Charlie, a self-proclaimed magician.

    She ends up in a strange, Meiji-era ?Tokyo? where the existence of ghosts is accepted. Led by Charlie, she finally arrives at the Rokumeikan. There, waiting for her to arrive, are the historical figures Ougai Mori, Shunsou Hishida, Otojirou Kawakami, Kyouka Izumi, Gorou Fujita, Yakumo Koizumi, and Tousuke Iwasaki.

    Whilst interacting with these men, she discovers she is a Tamayori - someone who can see ghosts - a skill that is highly valued in the Meiji Period. Due to these powers, her relationship with the men begins to change? As she gets to know these handsome men in a new era she just can?t get used to, a love begins to grow within her.

    Will Mei be able to return to her time? What will become of her love - a love that crosses the boundaries of time and space?

    Episode 1

    She really did see a ghost.

    So it begins with Mei being isekaied to the past thanks to Charlie's magic trick that had unexpected results as she's back in the past, and is enjoying a ball with a bunch of charming men. But things get out of hand after a certain chain of events as the smell of roast beef led Mei to bumping into the guy carrying it, to be caught by another guy, who throws it to Charlie, and then a fox was about to be executed by Fujita before Mei steps in revealing that she can see ghosts. And that's pretty much the gist of the premise there. I wasn't expecting much out of this show knowing the very low success rate otoge adaptations have, but I have seen stuff much worse than this as while it's far from good, it's not as bad as I was expecting.

    So with that, I'll put it through the usual trial period rules. While it's a longshot that I watch this, at least I'm into it enough to give it fair shot.

      Episode 2

      Until the next full moon...

      And Mei is filled in about the world she is in as she's stuck there until the next full moon, all while she learns about what a Tayamori is all about. While that's happening, she's chatting over some sukiyaki as while she would gladly settle for those beef bowls, she's being treated to something even better. That had some pretty amusing moments there seeing her getting used to life in the Meiji era as it's going to be awhile before she can return home. Not bad considering that this show has all the typical problems of otome games, but at least having a MC that isn't so dumb and helpless makes things more tolerable to say the least.
