Too many beautiful words too little characters developments, that's the best and worst things for this anime.

The anime is amazing and it have a great and fun story,I enjoyed it a lot.
And what makes the anime more awesome is the characters, the characters personalities are outstanding and unique, they also have unique and humorous reaction to things, their reactions always surprise me in a good way.

The plot goes smoothly in the anime, not fast but not too slow. However, i did not notice any characters developments in the anime except for only one character and in the last two episodes only, read more

Overall I think this anime deserves an 8.5 on my scale, but unfortunately there isn't that option.

Story: The story itself is fairly basic, but has some interesting back story thrown in every once in a while. However, the anime does seem rushed. I think a lot of people did not give this show a chance because the beginning is so chaotic. The first episode does not feel like an introduction at all, in fact you are pretty much thrown into the story.

Art: I really enjoyed the animation. It seemed to be well done (it better for being 10 episodes). Maybe, it is the read more

Story (7.1) - Story is pretty random. There are some episodes with sequence, like a 2-3 episode case, but in overall, each one has a case that must be solved. The progress its not very fast, and there are some moments that sound like filler minutes, when the story has really no progress.
Well, just an average aspect.

Art (7.3) - Design is acceptable, animations lack a little bit indeed. There are some flaws here and there in the show that could have been avoided, and the effects are not something great. Another average aspect.

Sound (8.0) - Maybe the best aspect of the show. Opening is read more

This is the first anime I've ever seen that I would call random. I think the word random is overused when describing many shows but this show is random - random in a funny and fun way, but random none the less. Yes, I know the reading the manga would probably make it less random but that itsn't the point.

What the MAL description fails to convey is that the show is really just ten episodes of following a trio of dysfunctional people on a journey. It definitely suffers from a lack of plot, but it redeems itself because dysfunctional people on a read more

A beautiful girl with magical powers accompanies a mysterious bishounen with a mysterious past and a dark agenda on a journey. Compared to the girl in Hatenkou Yuugi, Hakushaku's girl is a little more timid and her powers are more passive than active (she can communicate with fairies, but she can't cast spells--at least, not as of the first episode). Also, whereas in Hatenkou Yuugi, the girl is genuinely a companion for her two bishounen friends, in Hakushaku she is more a servant of the duke, and at his mercy. 
It's kind of similar in the concept of two guys traveling with a girl. Although both animes are quite different, where in Hatenkou Yuugi, in my opinion, there is much more comedy and romance, I think you might like this anime a lot. 
The story lines deal with relatively the same time period or time period styles. It also has a girl who tries to solve some of the supernatural mysteries that occur around her. 
Mainly I think the producers had the same target audience for these 2 shows - probably 14 year old girls- and are in the same general genre. Having said that they're are pretty enjoyable with pseudo-dark plots and complicated relationships.

The art quality and the air of mystery are very similar in both. Both have humor and a dark past. 
Because they both seem to make u feel excited while watching it
And both animes have funny parts ^^
