    Close of the Tokugawa Shogunate
    This story is a fictionalized historical drama which takes place during the close of the Tokugawan Shogunate (prior to 1868). Many of the protagonists are based upon true historical warriors of this period. If you were fortunate to have viewed Hakuoki Reimeiroku on CR, you will have a deeper insight as to how the relationships between the Shinsengumi warriors were established but if you did't ...

    Just to rate this...
    I love Japanese history, and this series definitely holds true to the histories in many ways. I've always enjoyed reading stories about the Shinsengumi and samarais - and both are found here. It's always fun to add paranormal and supernatural things to history retellings - making sure to let the viewers/readers know, of course, that the story is fictional but based on historical events. If you ...

  • A Historical Fantasy Worth Watching
    When I started watching this show, I was terrified it would be a low-level remake of Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X) and I would write a terrible review on it. I was surprised. First, the show pulls off something which I've yet to witness being done in merely 12 episodes---in depth character development. Apart from the main protagonist (Chizuru) being an incompetent blithering fool, every single ...

    BEST SERIES OF ALL TIME
    I love this series, the video game, the anime, everything. It's all based off of historical fact, plus the guys in this are soooo hot! Not to mention the battles that take place are epic. I'd recommend this series to any anime fan. I got into it after watching Rurouni Kenshin. It's a historical anime with fantasy and rommance/angst.

    Hakuoki Season 1 Not Bad At All
    This is a really good anime! The heroin is kind of (who am I kidding) really annoying for one reason though. She has is carrying around a short sword and can't use it (she apparently knows how to use it)!! She was with the group of kick butt warriors for a looong time, and I don't get why no one taught her. >:O I don't hate her though she is like alot of other heroins, but she really has to get ...

    sword play and a storyline that will grab you
    This show is amazing great sword play and a epic storyline that will grab you. From episodes 1 it will peek your interest, and make you crave more. Its for people who love samurai, japan of battle. It has just the right amount of fighting and a storyline to equal it out. It is a balanced anime packed with action. There really is no down or boring moments about this anime. You will at least like it ...

    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 ...

    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, ...

    Tragic beauty of life
    Beautiful anime but very tragic. Had me crying at the deaths. A must watch! Simply beautiful. This anime also had me raging at some points. it doesn't show as much romance as i was expecting it to show.

    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 ...
