I’ve loved costume dramas my whole life–starting from my childhood, when I would happily watch any cartoon that seemed rooted in the past. Lucky for me, the animation studios churned those out one after the other–but which ones were the best? Here, I count down my choices for the ten best animated costume dramas.
(Note: I tried to stick with the dramas that were at least somewhat rooted in the real world and a distinguishable time, which is the only reason Beauty and the Beast isn’t mentioned here. And possibly quite a few others as well, like Snow White.)
What do you think? Like the choices? Hate them? Anything I missed? Leave your comments below!
