* InnocentsShounenJuujigun While not to an extreme extent, there are enough inaccuracies and blurring of centuries that it borders on this. (Ex: the types of houses shown are from much later than the 13th century)

** As the manga's carried on, the anachronisms have been toned down, mostly being either aesthetic (women in [[{{Stripperiffic}} not enough clothes]], and so on) or difficult to fix due to plot (allowing there to be only five or six servants on an estate makes maintaining TheMasquerade easier, etc.). The remaining offenders are the [[{{Shinigami}} Reapers]], who, being otherworldly, seem to have access to modern technology such as plastic-framed glasses, a modern wristwatch, and the aforementioned chainsaw.

** Justified in one arc, where technology from the 20th century only existed in the 1800's thanks to a LensmanArmsRace; the existence of this technology drove the arc's plot ''because'' it was so far ahead of its time and everyone wanted to steal it.
** Eventually this trope was invoked and made plot-relevant, as a reaper directly confirmed that humans can gain advanced technology and scientific knowledge by making contracts with demons and other supernatural forces. In other words, anytime you see something that doesn't belong in that time period, [[ChekhovsGun keep track of it.]]

** Continued in ''Manga/{{Boruto}}'', where we continue to see smartphones alongside video games and airships, the Chunin Exams are broadcast over continent-wide television, ninja villages now have R&D departments manned by people in lab coats, and while the Hidden Leaf Village still looks like a metropolis of bamboo, wooden scraps, and rope, the inside of Naruto's house looks indistinguishable from a 21st-century American suburban upper-class house, with dinner served at a glass table and a complete home theater system with surround sound speakers.



* In ''Manga/AkameGaKill'', though the setting appears to be in a medieval period, there are some modern day technology used commonly throughout the show, such as guns, electric lighting, large leisure boats, and some of the clothing such as a suit and necktie. Chelsea also sports some headphones and regularly sucks on lollipops.

And then there's the protagonist Tatsumi, who looks like a hipster with his unzipped hoodie and T-shirt or collared shirt underneath.

* Creator/KairiShimotsuki knows her Japanese history and [[ShownTheirWork shows her work]] in ''Manga/Brave10'' in a lot of little details that JidaiGeki fare often overlooks, but she also gleefully dresses her main characters in [[{{Stripperific}} outrageous]] [[RummageSaleReject outfits]] mixing modern fringe fashions and unconventional traditional ones, has them eat lollipops, incorporate ballet and modern dance into traditional dance forms, invent rapid-firing pistols, and generally behave in ways that would not be appropriate to the time it is set (1599-1601).

* In ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'', aliens (known as Amanto) forcibly opened up Japan instead of Commodore Perry and crew, bringing all sorts of new-fangled technology to Edo (space travel, electric fans, bazookas, etc). And since ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' is ''supposed'' to be a GagSeries, you get things like the main character being a big fan of Weekly Shonen Jump (most notably ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', since he uses a sword too), {{idol singer}}s, and countless references to modern pop culture mixed in with more traditional fare, like TheShinsengumi, the Jooi resistance, and the Oniwabanshu (though disbanded in the series).

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' includes--in addition things that come straight from the imagination of the artist or only exist in the fantasy genre--many types of weaponry, armor, architecture, costumes, ships, etc. that did exist in real life, but in widely separate time periods. That's what gives us things like 14th century helmets, 16th century palaces, 17th century frigates, and 18th century ballgowns all mixed up together. It is a fantasy work incorporating historical elements rather than a historical work incorporating fantasy elements, so it's best to just appreciate the level of detail. The author is on record as saying he's perfectly aware that he depicts forms of armor, for example, that weren't all used at the same time, but decided to throw in [[RuleOfCool whatever he thought would be cool]] instead of limiting himself.
