Still don't get the Studio Deen hate. I understand the hate Kon Chiaki got but she doesn't work in Studio Deen anymore.

But I'm excited for this! Those seiyuu's are amazing.

If anyone's interested, I just found this. It's like, a sample of the game. It might take a while to load though. You don't need to know much Japanese for this.
Just click on the options to the right and you should be fine.

Wheres Sakata? There Toshirou, Sougo, Katsura, Sakamoto, Takasugi, Kondo and Yoshida... Where is Sakata? Did he exist in that era?


Sakata didn't exist in that era (bakumatsu period). If i'm not mistaken Sakata is from the Heian period.


Really? How about Gintama? Sakata was there! Well i guess i will still continue to look forward to it


Sorachi-sensei just put Sakata in Gintama even if he wasn't from bakumatsu era. I think it was even mentioned in one of the episodes in the anime or in the manga. (I can't really pinpoint the exact episode or chapter). I even checked in wiki and yes, Sakata Kintoki (Kintaro) - where Sakata Gintoki from Gintama was based and he was from Heian period.

Though Studio DEEN may be hard to trust, at less the art and animation look decent in the PV. What really worries me is the fact that game adaptions are not usually very good, and that the anime's idea may sound silly to the "serious" otakus out there...


I don't why everyone dislikes the character designs, I think they look unique and awesome

And Taniyama Kishou is the main among the main characters? Singing with his marvelous voice?

I am sold <3

GREAT SEIYUUS. I will definitely watch this!~ The PV is interesting, and I am bad at rhythm games so I will settle for the anime instead. I'm a little worried about Studio Deen's quality though.

Mar 7, 2014 1:08 AM by endless_nine_09

Okay guys. stop complaining. If you don't like it, please don't watch this. That's all from me.

By the way, historical + music..? That's quite new, at least for me. I shall check that out. :>

Well, good for the fangirls....I guess.
I'll keep an eye on this one, it looks cool!!
