If you're a fan of the medieval period who also loves anime, this list will help you find some awesome medieval anime to add to your to-watch list.
The term "medieval" here is used loosely, as many of these series take place in alternate universes with different methods of marking time, or aren't clear as to exactly when they take place. Rather than strictly taking place in the historic medieval period, these take place a few hundred years in the past and have knights, dragons, sword fighting, royal families, peasant, and other attributes associated with medieval life.
Some of the best medieval anime include popular titles like Berserk and Spice & Wolf, as well as lesser-known but equally worthwhile shows like Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit and The Story of Saiunkoku. Vote up the series that you think deserve the most attention.
