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

This is my first ever review and i decided to give this anime my first reciew. i know this review will suck, but please, bare with me!(:

Honestly, I'm giving this anime series a 10 out of 10. I've been looking for an anime that would make me feel excited about anime again. I happened to bump into this one and I just can't get over how great it was. I even went through the trouble of looking at the background of the anime characters and found it fascinating that some of the characters were real life people and that the battles actually did take read more

I personally think it's really hard to rate this sequel just because it really depends on what type of show you want to watch. Despite appearing to be a reverse harem, this anime is not about a bunch of guys all chasing one girl. It centers around the history of the Shinsengumi. It's also a lot more dramatic, and emphasizes the realities of war.

So, that in mind, the only real downside I found to the anime is that (spoiler alert).............. everyone dies! I would have enjoyed the series way more if only one max two didn't make it. But they freakin killed read more

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.

Listen to me guys, this is what being a true man is about! Protecting the girl you love. I really admire Kenshin and Hijikata. Epic anime!!!

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

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

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.
