  • It's okay!! Wish it had more Romance!
    The guys were hot and I loved that. However, I thought there would be more romance in it. You don't get to anything romantic until the last couple of episodes of season two and crunchyroll don't even have season two. I had to find it on another site.

  • Simply an Amazing Anime
    With a fair amount of historical accuracy in terms of characters and historical dates (Which is pretty impressive for a mere anime), Hakuoki is based off of true events regarding the historic Shinsengumi.
    This anime is short and concise. The plot does not drag on tiresomely and the flow of events are fairly smooth. Moreover, this story was beautiful and tragic and it truly touches the heart to a ...

  • This Was Just Great!
    I don't even remember how I came across this title, but I know that I was interested enough to put it on my queue. On a whim, I started watching it and was sold within the first episode or two.

    This series passes literally every standard that I have for an anime. It has stunning visuals, an amazing soundtrack, nice openings and endings, interesting characters, and a relevant plot without too ...

    Hmmm....I liked the game better!
    I loved the game and I cleared it and replayed it over and over! <3 Poor Shinpachi never got a route...Hahaha, liked this Shinpachi more than Gintama's.Hijikata was a bit better too and I think the Kondos are equal. But is every Okita a bit sadistic?! Haha.

    Story: In the game, I'd give it a 5/5 since this only really explores the Hijikata route i detail, I'd give the anime, season one and two, ...

    Average but there is a prequel and a season 2
    I found this to be good enough to make you want to watch it to the end. The protagonist is helpless and will get on your nerves. If you focus your entire time on her and her short sword that she never pulls out you will be annoyed. However, if you look at the story line and the development of the characters you might be pleased. There are things that you can watch for so that you don't get annoyed ...

    <3 Wish it never ended
    I loved it sooo much. I have some of the video games too. I was so sad when it was finally over!!!! All of the characters were developed well and the voice acting was very good in the original japanese version. Long live Okita Souji, my favorite character

    I liked the show but didnt love it.
    I have been watching a lot of anime lately and I think this show is what I consider average...when it comes to sword play and samurai, ninjas or whatever historic events really happened it wasn't as exciting because I felt that some of the fights were two short but you don't always get what you want....for me this was okay but it wouldn't get a re-watch or high-recommendation from me for others to ...

    Tragic beauty of life

    Good, but not great...
    I'm not gonna go over the entire show in depth, over explain stuff that is easily learned by watching it. You want to know one thing, "Is this seriously worth my time?"

    Probably.

    "Eh, explain"

    You will noticed a trend with this anime: people ranting about how incompetent, annoying, and utterly useless the main protagonist is. And she really is.

    She has a short sword, ...

    Hakuoki will grab you, BUT....
    Hakuoki is a very interesting anime, and as far as i'm concern, all of the members of the Shinsengumi (the group in this anime) are based on the actual historic figures. The reason I gave it a 4 is that the heroine is useless, and can be annoying. She even got somebody killed (sorry, just had to say that) I wished that she could have been a little older looking and could actually fight. She has a ...
