    Honestly, I think that the suspension of disbelief would break down very quickly, and you’d end up with something closer to “Army of Darkness” than your desired anime.

    I mean, let’s think about this. I’m a high school English teacher, but I know a little bit about science. If I got teleported back into feudal Japan, what’s to stop me from furnishing them with electricity? Or gunpowder-based weaponry? Or totally screwing the pooch with the timeline, and building in items that blend technology and sorcery?

    I get the impression that the simulation that you’re hoping to achieve hinges greatly upon the players to have very little gamist (what do you mean, their armor deflects my P90 bullets?) or narrative control (what do you mean, I can’t make homemade gunpowder–my character was a research chemist!), which isn’t something that any player really wants to give up.

    Also, I don’t mean to nit-pick…but look at your title Very Carefully…

    Okay, so anime’s STILL not my thing… Didn’t get the reference.
