Pros And Cons Of Hakuouki:


It Focuses On Certain Historical Events.
I don’t know much about the Shinsengumi, so I don’t know how much truth there is to it. Other than that, I learned a bit about the history of the Shinsengumi thanks to this anime. Looking forward to watching Hakuouki Season 2 next!

Great Animation!
Beautiful anime graphics!

Good Characters.
Interesting and entertaining characters.

Nice Opening And Ending Songs.
The songs are really nice and catchy. I like it.


I don’t have anything bad to say about this anime.
