I just watched the first episode. I liked the OP and ED a lot, and the animation/art was crisp and very pretty. Not bad for my first Shoujo... I'm looking forward to the next episode, because as we all know the first's all just introductions... Yup, Hakuouki's staying on my watchlist

Just want to say cronmage's version is joke subs. So you might want to avoid that.

Although it is quite funny in some parts. XD

Okay I said I'd wait for the sub...well...I couldn't...I caved into their hotness and watched the raw...orz - not that I understood anything.

I like the OP and ED. Love the OP song - although I couldn't hear much of it with all the bishies floating around before my eyes. I got fangirl goosebumps all the while watching this first episode. *shivers*

Spoiler for episode 1:


And I saw many potential bl pairings (...this coming from me, orz) I'm sure bl-fangirls are jumping to the gun for.

Looks good so far...plot?...when it comes to a basket full of bishies like this...I don't need plot.

I never played the game, so I didn't know what she sounded like but, from a picture alone, I also first thought she was a boy.

Now to choose which subgroup will be good to follow...

Just watched the subs. I have to say, this is one of the best fabulous hair-themed triple reverse trap double reverse harem anime I've seen in a while!

I mean.

Deen really surprised me here. The art looks great and the colors they chose really fit the atmosphere. Can't say much about animation since the majority of this episode didn't need any, but overall very pleasing visually.
Won't comment on plot yet since I'll need (real) subs for that. It took a bit of effort for the talking heads to keep my attention, but that's mainly the lack of subs fault. I'll trust that the story will move past the talking and into action/romance/etc soon. Will keep watching~

I just ran across a second set of trollsubs for this title. Some people are seriously laying the hate on. On the plus side, I've seen the opening scene about 10 times now, and quite like it. :checks watch: I guess there's no chance of getting a legit sub today after all.

While I'm at it:

Might be because I'm a guy, then. But I instantly recognized her as a girl, and a very cute one, while we're at it. Plus, someone there went as far as having her all tied up when she got 'captured', so I really don't think that somehow the fact she had a woman's body would go by unnoticed.

Then again, this really isn't important at all!

I knew that she was girl way before watching the episode. And duno, if the whole episode really was about finding out the gender... couldn't they just grab her front or undress her to confirm that?

Well, in the anime I recognized her as a girl...I mean, I haven't seen a guy scream like that and in that way, even in anime. But before the anime, when I first just saw a picture of her, I thought she was a boy.

But you're right, this isn't important...just funny.

I agree, she is a cute (and damn lucky!) girl. I wonder how well she can fight - since she has a sword, I assume she can fight at least.

I'm really looking forward to this. I've always been interested in the Shinsengumi since Rurouni Kenshin.

Episode one was nice. It looked interesting and ended up interesting. Though talk about bishounen overload...... ( -_-)
Otome game, after all... Can't be helped.
As long as the story remains stable, it'll be a good show... I hope.

Plus, there aren't many, but the girls are cute.
I thought it was obvious she was female...

Thanks for the heads up. I was just watching it now and just got to the OP when I realised there had to be something wrong with the subs.

Well that's definitely what I would do. Fast and effective.
Or if I was on her place, then I myself would open my kimono, I'm pretty sure that she has it bandaged anyway so you don't have to be too embraced.

Haha, the joke subs were pretty funny -- plus it helps to learn the language when you have to really concentrate on what they are saying.

Beautiful art, though the moving mouths screams not high enough budget. It seems like almost every anime with good looking guys made for girls are cursed with moving mouths and slow action sequences, though this one is comparatively a lot better than a lot of others.

Really excited to see the real subs come out after the end of Kimi. Do we have more than one group doing this one?

So far when the plot comes to mind it's - meh. All I really did was drool at the eye-candy all episode . I still loved it though.

I don't need a plot as long as they look this hawt all season .

Watched the episode again (with Chinese sub). Enjoyed it even more.

Not really knowing much (except the name, really) about the Shinsengumi, I looked it up in Wikipedia -- and found that the characters in the show are at least partly based on real people. Click through on the names in the list there for a few actual photos -- Kondou, Hijikata, etc. This site has even more info about each of them.

I like this anime. Reminds me a lot of Rurouni Kenshin. The time period, anyway. The character design is much different. Much more... bishounen, I would say.

Yes! Hot Guys! Umm, I mean..
I see that DEEN put in some extra effort with character drawings, I'm rather surprised.
And lovely lovely voice of Toriumi Kousuke!

Yeah, personally my initial thoughts were that it was a boy that was a trap. You know, a boy that looked like a girl and acted like one. But then it turned out to ber a girl (badly) disguised as a boy. Thank goodness... I don't think I could have taken it if it were a boy.

This is funny... is it a reverse harem? In any case, pretty boys abound... I detect yaoi fanart being drawn as we speak.
