The continuation of Hakuoki.

The Edo Era has ended after 260 years of history and the Meiji Era begins. However, bitter strife still continues between the soldiers of the new government and former Tokugawa retainers. This is the stage in which the surviving members of the Shinsengumi find themselves upon their return to Edo following their defeat at Tobafushimi.

Personally, I really really like this anime. (In fact, it's my favorite one as of now). But looking at the other reviews, I can tell that not everyone agrees... Well, I guess we all have our own opinions. :-/ Anyways, this review will also refer back to the first season, and may contain spoilers.

Story: 10
I found the story very interesting; and never once thought the anime was boring while watching it. I like the way that they make the anime last over a couple of years, rather than in a short amount of time like some other animes. But part of the reason why I read more

Alot of people i have talked to, dislike this anime. Some of the reviews i have read, on here and on other sites, are poor.
In my opinion however this was a great anime. I may not be very experienced in anime watching, but i thought that this show had a great story line and great characters. I do wish this show had a bit of a happier way about it, but based on what it did have i think it was a very sad, yet amazing anime.
I would surely watch this again, and reccomend it to people. It may not be the best anime out read more

I'm starting to think that the folk that disliked this anime series simply didn't understand it. I'll be blunt. I'll go as far to say that this series is categorized wrong.

This is not a harem.
This is not shoujo.
It WAS an Otome.

It's not anymore.This is a history and character piece about war. This is a drama. This has to do with coping samurai during the dawn of the Meiji era. It's not a happy go lucky "we all want the girl" series. It can be very sad at times and characters will die.

If this does not appeal to you then look read more

Hakuouki is probably one of the top anime dramas around and Hekketsuroku, not counting the latest - currently airing - prequel, is by far the better one.

Hakuouki is tagged as "shoujo" because it is based on an otome game (a game designed for girls) but I can tell you for sure that the anime and it's plot are not really centered around the needy, rather colorless main female lead, but on emphasizing some historical facts about the military force of the time known as the Shinsengumi.
As many people are put out by the female character, who, during the first season, looks really out read more

Anime: Hiiro no Kakera
Good drawing, music and environment but a disappointing boring development, and with a stupid protagonist, who only expected to be protected and never helps those who protect her, just "looking at them" in fights and giving them moral support.
It made more frustrating the main characther in two series when the charachters that shape their harem were wounded or are dying and she don't do anything. And if she reacts, reacts in a very slow form. Two series with two very frustrating protagonists.

Anime: Shingeki no Kyojin
There are many touching deaths in both anime's although Hakuouki has a little non-fiction in it both have plenty of fighting and many unsolved mysteries.

Anime: Vampire Knight
Both deal with supernatural beings ( Vampires and Oni ). Also, all the Oni look very much like Zero and the main characters have a relationship

Anime: Wolf's Rain
No question: Wolf's Rain is the superior anime, but they do have a bit in common. Both center around a group that is seen as a menace to society and which the audience is meant to root for. Both also boldly kill off an almost unbelievable number of characters. You watch these individuals succeed through many trials, then suddenly that changes and one by one, they're systematically killed. The shift is quite sudden in both cases, but even more pronounced in Wolf's Rain. Obviously, watching the first season of Hakuouki is necessary, but the large amount of character death happens in season two, thus this  read more

Anime: Basilisk: Kouga Ninpou Chou
Both are about war between clans. While in Basilisk they´re ninjas, in Hakuouki they´re samurai. Both deal with tragedy. Both are also about a forbidden love.
