Crunchyroll describes the show as:
Tohru Honda thought her life was headed for misfortune when a family tragedy left her living in a tent. When her small home is discovered by the mysterious Soma clan, she suddenly finds herself living with Yuki, Kyo, and Shigure Soma. But she quickly learns their family has a bizarre secret of their own: when hugged by the opposite sex, they turn into the animals of the Zodiac!
Mitsutoshi Satō take the director’s chair at Studio DEEN, with Hidekazu Shimamura (Flowers of Evil) providing character designs. Masahiro Yokotani (Free! – Iwatobi Swim Club, Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai) is back in charge of series composition.
Crunchyroll describes Bakumatsu Crisis as:
The chronometer is a legendary treasure that has the power to manipulate time.
The Susanoo Incident unfolded in the capital of Kyoto and ended with the death of the masked shogun, Mugensai.
Having finished visiting the grave of his former master, Yoshida Shoin, Takasugi Shinsaku and his partner, Katsura Kogoro, return to Kyoto once again.
Suddenly, the earth trembles and the sky splits open, and the chronometer, which was supposed to have been destroyed, appears from a rift in space-time.
Now with a will of its own, the chronometer starts going on an uncontrollable rampage!!
