Who says history can't be fun? Although history anime isn't necessarily a genre, there are a lot of good anime about history and historical events. Samurai Champloo, for example, contains many historical references to the events surrounding the Edo Period of Japan. In Fullmetal Alchemist the Movie: Conqueror of Shamballa, the series is flipped on its head, as we see Ed and Al in Nazi Germany surrounding World War II.

What is your favorite anime about historical events? These can also be considered anime period piece series, as they (almost) all take place during a historic time or event in the past. Did we miss a seriously good show that needs to be represented on this list? Feel free to add your favorite period piece anime to the list!
