Who says anime can't be both entertaining and informative? Anime in the historical genre aims to be just that, both entertaining and informative. However, that doesn't always translate into historical accuracy. Take any education on history you get from anime with a big grain of salt. Usually they contain unique views on different periods of history, but almost always have an element of fantasy to the story. Regardless, historical anime can pique interest towards the more interesting times in history, intriguing people enough to study up on the real time. That learning thing, well it is never a bad thing.
