On Feb 26, during the “Hakuouki Sekkaroku ~ Dreams of Spring ~” special event, we dropped the bomb on some exciting news – new Hakuouki anime projects!
１．『薄桜鬼 雪華録 第六章～風間千景～』2012年６月、リリース！
1. Hakuouki Sekkaroku #6 ~ Kazama Chikage ~ will be released in June of 2012!
2. Hakuouki Reimeiroku will be turned into an anime starting in the summer of 2012!
3. A two part movie adaptation of the Hakuouki series is in the works! The slated release date is sometime in 2013!
Pretty big stuff, huh? (lit. Raging anime unfolding huh!)
And if that wasn’t enough for you all, the serialization of the Hakuouki Reimeiroku manga adaptation has started in the April Issue of Sylph!
Artist: Akatsuki Kaori
Supervised: Idea Factory / Deen Studio
The one in charge of drawing the manga adaptation is Akatsuki Kaori-sensei, who you may remember drew the Sanosuke Harada arc and the Heisuke Toudou arc in the Hakuouki Jurenka anthology.
Also, if memory serves right, this is her first time drawing the cover illustration and the front color pages of Sylph!
Speaking of which, here’s a teaser of her illustration ★

The color pages feature the main 5 men of Hakuouki. In addition, Hakuouki Reimeiroku introduces two new characters: Ibuki Ryunosuke and Serizawa.
Hakuouki Reimeiroku takes place before the original Hakuouki series. Though the prequel is more of a mystery show involving the Shinsengumi, it still connects to the original.
Our story begins when protagonist, Ryunosuke, is found passed out on the side of a road and is picked up by the hair a man named Serizawa.
Ryunosuke is taken in by Serizawa
to be his boy toyand eventually encounters the soldiers of the Shinsengumi before they were known as the Shinsengumi. Instead, the soldiers are just part of Serizawa’s boy toy harema rag tag group of lordless samurai.
When Ryunosuke awakens, he sees…
And down the hallway…
At the well washing his face…
Yelling at night is…
Hakuouki Reimeiroku is the beginning of a soon-to-be crazy ride. Please be sure to read the first chapter in the April Issue of Sylph!
Lol, random post is random. I’m still not back completely but I saw this on Sylph‘s website and so felt like translating it just because I wanted an excuse not to look for research material xD Man, this issue of Sylph went out lightning fast D: It’s like the minute an anime adaptation was announced for Hakuouki Reimeiroku, the bitches came flying out of the woodwork to grab the April issue because it features the manga adaptation of Hakuouki Reimeiroku. Thankfully bk1.jp still had some because amazon.jp was OUT! What sucks is I had the magazine in my cart but decided to wait until the afternoon to submit my order. Bad move man.
Love you lots bk1.jp.
What’s kind of funny is that when the anime adaptation of Arcana Famiglia was announced, there was no mass shortage of Sylph issues. The bitches are too in love with Uta no Prince-sama, Hakuouki, and Brothers Conflict xD Poor Arcana Famiglia!
