Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel back in time to Edo period Japan? If that's the case, then the upcoming comedy Bakumatsu Kokosei (Bakumatsu refers to the final years of the Edo period; Kokosei is Japanese for high school student) and its heroes might bring you a step closer to your dream.

Inspired by a 90's TV series of the same name, Lee Toshio's (Detroit Metal City) quirky period piece revolves around a high school teacher and her pupils who accidentally travel back in time to 19th century, just before the beginning of the Boshin War (1868-1869). Here's how AsianWiki describes the plot:

In 1868, a battle between new government forces and shogunate forces are about to take place in Edo. Katsu Kaishu (Hiroshi Tamaki) wants to avoid useless bloodshed and sends a peace envoy to Takamori Saigō, but Katsu Kaishu is unable to get a response from Takamori Saigō.

One day, Katsu Kaishu meets high school teacher Mikako (Satomi Ishihara) and her student Masaya who is captivated by the shogunate. Mikako and her student Masaya tells Katsu Kaishu that they are from the future. Katsu Kaishu takes care of Mikako and her student Masaya, while Mikako hopes to go back to the future where she came from.

Bakumatsu Kokosei will have its Japanese premiere on July 26, 2014. Take a look at the first trailer below!
