The year is 1863 and as Japan's long festering wounds of political discord erupt into violent waves of street clashes and murder, the Tokugawa Shogunate sends a new force of masterless samurai called the Roshigumi to the aid of the Aizu forces in Kyoto. However the new "police" are anything but a cohesive force and assassination has already split them into two opposing factions. The stronger is led by the brutal Serizawa Kamo and the lesser by the more honorable but less assertive Isami Kondo. It is into this pack of wolves that Ryunosuke Ibuki is dragged by the rabid Serizawa. Forced to be a virtual slave by blood debt, he hates the samurai and everything they stand for. But as he sees how the other half of the samurai live, he begins to believe that there may still be a chance, for both himself and Japan, if only Kondo will step up and take down the mad dog Serizawa!

You'd think after being traumatized by how bad the first two series were, I wouldn't think twice of going anywhere near this franchise again but no, apparently I'm a masochist so I decided to torture myself further by watching this. Actually I’m kidding, it's really not that bad. It has its shortcomings which I will mention in the review but I found myself genuinely curious and enjoying this. Maybe because there's no annoying Chizuru? I couldn’t stand her in the first two series so I guess without her I managed to enjoy the bishies more.
My apologies for the weird ordering, this is a slight revision read more

The Hakuoki seasons were truly beautiful.
After watching the last episode today all the pieces now come together about the rasetsu and what kind of person Serizawa-san truly was.
The sword fighting, and art incorperated into a grander picture made this anime truly amazing.

I don't really understand why they chose this to be the third season for Hakuouki, being for the fact that this should have been the first one to start the series off with. Other than that have watched two seasons of it and finishing up with the third.

The word "Pride" is an essential word in the Samurai world- and in this story we follow a "Dog" yes a long haired dog who doesn't have any resolve to even hold the sword in his belt on his journey and also someone who also has zero pride to move forward with life.

This "Banken's" name is Ryuunousuke- and after being half-beaten to death he gets saved by the Roshigumi's captain: another annoying man which i had no concern at first}into the all famous Kondo-Hijikata group also known as the "Shinsengumi"

Story:As the previous anime the main chara is a male lead this time-so no one read more
