Honestly I'm a big fan of the Hakuouki series as a whole, but out of all of the various OVA's, Movies, Series, etc. I believe this is my favorite little mini-series.

If you haven't watched Hakuouki & Hakuouki Hekketsuroku than it's important to watch them first in order to understand the more intricate details about the overall story.

I love this because it shows us the boys a bit more and how their relationship with Chizuru is, and why she's important to them (the game that the anime is based on is an otome one, afterall!) and it also gives us more light-hearteded enjoyment as well, read more

Well first i thought this was yeah "Fan service" of course- but after seeing these valuable episodes i'm pretty much satisfied both with the main season and this. It simply added the required finishing touch.

This is the 6 piece OVA of the franchise Hakuouki which is mainly comprised of tragedy. And this could be the only episodes which clings to the emotional side of the characters since in the main season focuses solely on battle and sadness.

Story:Well as you all might know Hijikata Toshizo the Oni Lieutenant and Okita Souji as simply saying the "Shinsengumi" it revolves around them, and a girl read more

Ah, the OVAs and the main series were pretty good in my opinion, the characters were fairly well developed and stayed within their themes quite well, however the main character was extremely boring, nothing special in the way of protagonists. I've seen her character SO many times, so that was a little disappointing. The art style isn't quite the way that I like it, but considering it is from around 2007 that is to be expected. One thing that I absolutely could not stand was (SPOILER ALERT) the fact that EVERY SINGLE GUY DIED. Literally, all of them except Shirunai and Kyuuju. T^T Overall though, read more
