* 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.

* OsamuTezuka loved to throw in gross anachronisms into his historical works. The first volume of ''Manga/{{Phoenix}}'', for instance, has an ancient Japanese general leave to read a ''Literature/JamesBond'' novel (which may be a {{Woolseyism}} on the part of the translator), and things like televisions and refrigerators are worked into other volumes of the series via BambooTechnology.

* ''LightNovel/TheCircumstancesLeadingToWaltrautesMarriage'' is set in NorseMythology, but features things like the metric system and modern day-style swimsuits. The main characters do question where these things come from.
