Set during the Bakumatsu Period, Shine On! Bakumatsu Boys follows a group of seven condemned criminals who are brought in to act as “doubles” when the original Shinsengumi secret police force is wiped out by an unknown assailant, leaving only a single survivor. Can this ragtag band of rogues keep Kyoto safe?


A teaser visual for the upcoming Shine On! Bakumatsu Boys depicting the condemned main characters bound and kneeling awaiting execution from a blood-spattered samurai wielding a sword. The main character, Ichibanboshi, is defiant and has an evil look in his eyes despite being gagged.
