This show was terribly boring.

I have a limit of about one beautiful male per show.

You stole my words.

No, seriously, it was boring and cliché, especially after the initial fight which was clean and good. The rest of the episode was not really well executed and the overall concept of the show doesn't please me so much. I'd rather have another Hanasakeru Seishonen :)

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Damnn its a bishie paradise, my eyes are blinded. I was kind of expecting it to be filled with a bunch of shoujo crap with sparkles being based off an otome game and all, so this was a pleasant surprise. Im liking this so far

I'm very disappointed in the characteristics of the main girl. They storyling makes her weak, frail, fragile, and WEAK! I hate how she just results to crying and nonsense. OMG! Like, totally stick-up for yourself! Show some girl-power! I really wish she could fight AND be tough AND still be feminime. But, I guess the main girl is just another disappointment for me, just like many of the new anime these days.

ON THE OTHER HAND, I loved the graphics! I loved the designs of the characters. The guys looked HOTT and the main girl was very pretty. Just that she is WEAK WEAK WEAK makes me lose interest.

Stop saying stuff at Chizuru D:

I'm rather amazed she actually didn't wait for her father and instead disguised herself as a boy and roamed around Kyoto by herself.
(I wouldn't be able to do that... -_-;; I wouldn't have the courage! Dx)
I'm all talk...but no action. -bangs head on wall- <see what I mean here? xD

It's BISHIE paradise.
Originally an otome game.
They need a useless not-so-very damsel but still a damsel in distress girl. (no, it's OK if you don't get it xD)
It's more on romance -with tad bit action here and there-
May lack story/plot/blaaaaaaah
BISHIE HAVEN/HEAVEN.
Chizuru is cute.
It's NOT like VK (which was shitty) it's more like Amatsuki. (please don't compare it to Vampire Knight...eww lawl)

I need my sleep before I explode. Lawl

I don't have much of an opinion about this show yet, I have to wait and see.
All I've got to say is that I'm really loving all of the seiyuu so far<3, & yes, the girl is getting on my nerves already.

Lots of handsome guys with swords, huh?

I know there probably will not be much else to admire in the series, but I won't complain either. I like handsome guys with swords.

^This.

Eh, I watched this on a whim. It kept my attention. Handsome bishies with swords ftw?

And I heard Gilbert Nightray in there somewhere. I'll definitely keep watching XD

What do they mean by "pitiable young men"?

are they referring to the bishie pretty boys or some other group?

They mean the second group of Shinsengumi. Pitiable as in poor, miserable, unfortunate.

At first I was like "Damn! This show looks promising" .. Then it kinda went downhill, but hopefully they were just doing some character development. Definitely gonna continue to see where it goes.

Even though not a lot of stuff happened I still enjoyed it because of the characters. Seems there are a lot of good voice actors in this one and the characters were fun and... they look good..

I just hope something more exciting happens next episode as this was quite uneventful.

That bit of animation was pretty good, looking forward to more of that. P:

But oh God, the bishies. I don't have a problem with bishies, but there are so many of them and I can just predict who the fangirls are going to slash with each other...

I didn't really like it. The characters were a little annoying, they argued nearly every time they opened their mouths, and even if that dude, Heisuke?, was about to leak 'top secret' information the punch seemed random and stupid. It's also still hard for me to see these bishies as Shinsengumi members even though I do love the character design >.>

Well it's only the first episode, here's hoping it gets better~

I don't mind since I like her already.
You have a thing for those weakly not very sharp kind of girls don't you?
Wrong. He's got a thing for pretty much any girl it seems.


Really? From what i understood he doesn't like very much, dynamic women, evil girls or sexy revealing females. Doesn't he start calling them bitches and whores?

No the only girl I like is Sawako so I guess the appreciation I have for other girls is either looks or personality kind of like Sawako. Sawako....my love in anime.....no other girl is more perfect than her.

In spoiler my anime list for now.

Okay, so, I watched this for, well, the bishies only. And I can honestly say, I have no idea what the story is about.The guys were hot though. Enlighten me if you can, please.

The beginning had me i thought this anime was going to reall badass. Untill half-through i realize they are mostly standing around talking about alot of boring things. And i also realize the overuse of bishi-characters on bother genders, that just kind of seemed very lame to me. but other than that the animation was nice and for a shoujo there was alot of blood, just hope theres action on the way.

Story is interesting enough, but I did start to get a little bored during the middle.
Probably cuz I was sleep deprived and about to pass out on my keyboard though :p

Nice animation too

Animation was excellent. Character Designs are good however if the plot will be focused on Romance or Reverse Harem....I will not like this anime...

No, I'd say it's the opposite. All these characters are based on real historical figures. And in Gintama their names were all altered. In Hakuouki they appear the same they were in the history.

Kondo, Okita and Hijikata are sort of like their Gintama counterparts. Especially Okita.

Ahhh reverse harem... my guilty pleasure. I never played the game but I came across many fan videos a while back and fell in love with it even though I had no idea what the story was. So I was really happy and excited with this episode. ^-^

And I knew I wouldn't be the only person who noticed this!!!



Since I didn't expect much from the show, it didn't disappoint me.
All I like about it are the OP ( both animation itself and the song ), character design and protagonists' voice actors.
It's Roy Mustang in disguise! and Chizuru's seiyu is Shoukei's from Juuni Kokki!!

unlike most people here I actually really liked it XD Samurais~ <33 And looks like there'll be sum romance later on

I personally have nothing against the bishies. And no I'm not a yaoi fangirl (yaoi fangirls actually tend to annoy me o.e)

Good first episode, animation was good, can't wait for the next one :3

Seiyuu and bishie feast! However it didn't meet my expectations (and I thought I'd learn)...
Chizuru was indeed annoying and the rest of the charas felt awkward.

This anime is pretty interesting, I kinda don't like how Souji is though.. but I'll get used to it. Toshi looks good. :3

The OP looks good, but the ED.. a bit too shoujo for my taste.

But then again, I think it is under the shoujo genre.. o.o

God, that was boring! I almost fell asleep while watching >.<
Don't really mind bishies, but zero action + damsel in distress = not cool at all. I'll probably watch one or two more episodes in the hope that the story picks up, but as it is now, that's not my series. Maybe because I'm not interested in slashing and prefer strong and capable females.
