Personal opinion:

So far i've seen all the 7 episodes that came out and i have to say that i really enjoy this series :) . I mean: historical + samurai + bishie + nice catchy plot + oni - it just can't get any better @[email protected] . This anime really caught me with lots of great qualities of a tv series:great art (this was the first thing that caught my eyes),nice soundtrack, great characters with different & really interesting personalities. Oooh... and i've heard that some of the characters are actual people that were military leaders so I thought that was really nice! It's just great how the anime connects the past for us viewers to relate to culture and to connect more with the traditional Japanese historical setting @[email protected]

 

All in all... i enjoy every new episode to the fullest and i always find myself wanting to see more and more. Really hope this will end up being a great series from the beginning to the end of it @[email protected] .

 

 

What about u guys? Do like this series? If u haven't seen it yet, i warmly recommend it to you ^__^

p.s.: if u want to be more specific in your comments, please use the spoiler tag so that we don't ruin the fun for other users that haven't seen the anime yet :D . thanks!

I been following this to. Im interested in were they are going. The story reminds me somewhat of Kaze Hikaru except with more fantasy elements. I hope they make the main character in this show stronger because right now she acts weak all the time.

i dunno,i watched about 3 episodes,but its kinda cliché to me...i started because of the historical part,its interesting to me,but it didnt really grab my attetntion overall,all the guys are an archetype of a reversed-harem (the silent one,the shota,the player,the cool-type etc..),so its kinda predictable who she is gonna end up with...and the girl is boring..but the art is great,i admit that.

To think that 'bishounen' is a genre is something entirely anime/manga culture. Just thought I'd mention that.

 

Anyway, the bishies (although I wonder if they're really bishounen because they're much older than teens) are absolutely attractive. I quite like how they intertwined the different stories in the manga and melded it into one. Although, I'm not far into the anime so whether it continues to work or not is something I have yet to determine. But, like how chillli said, the characters are quite the standard. The art's lovely though and that is probably what keeps me watching it.

I must agree that it does remind me of Kaze Hikaru. But, I can't say so for sure because I've only seen like maybe 2 episodes. I love the historical elements because its something that I don't frequently see or watch. The guys are definatly archetypes of a reveresed-harem. Besides the fact that I would like to see more romance, I love it so far and I am interested to see how far it will go and what type of character developments will happen along the way. Sooo many hot bishies! I don't think I'll be able to contain myself.

I liked it. Its surprisingly accurate historically, too (if you take out all the stuff about oni, of course).

Especially the thing when they attacked the in with 10 ppl, of which 4 went in and 6 waited outside.

Even down to the fact that okita coughed up blood and heisuke had his head practically split open. (though the reasons differed in the anime)

I'm looking forward to season 2.

Oh, they've adapted this one into an anime! Thanks for the heads up. I've never played at the game but started to get interested in it when I saw some scans from Yone Kazuki's artbook. The illustrations were gorgeous. The anime adaptation looks promising so I'm going to take a look at this.

I've also became interested in this anime after i've seen some scans, then i just bumped into some other random photos from the game and that was it :)) . It was enough to make me want to follow the series :D . The first season was interesting, but i think that the second one will be even more. I have really high hopes for it ^^

pft... thats just too sad there are soooo many good anime/manga that end sadly or tragically you should try to stick it out and finish it once you start it >.< but i guess in the end its your choice. lol
