薄桜鬼 巡恋華

Summary:

The protagonist, Yukimura Chizuru, is the daughter of a doctor who works in Edo. The father leaves Edo to work as a volunteer doctor and moves to Kyoto without his daughter. As time passes by, Chizuru starts worrying about losing contact with her father, so she decides to go to Kyoto in search of him. On the way, Chizuru is attacked by few criminals and witnesses a fight between an oni and the Shinsengumi. Taking her into custody and saving her, the Shinsengumi debate on what to do with Chizuru when they discover that she is the daughter of the doctor they are also looking for. So they decide to become Chizuru’s protectors and help her look for her father(the doctor).

The story is overall romantic with a historical and political background.

Description of Hakuouki the manga vol #1 from Comic Sylph’s official homepage:

超人気乙女ゲームの公式コミカライズ! メインキャラクターをそれぞれ別の作家が執筆するオムニバス形式で展開。第1巻には「土方歳三篇」(作画 RURU)、「沖田総司篇」 (作画 篠原花那)、「原田佐之助篇」(作画 暁かおり) を収録。さらに、RURU先生と篠原花那先生による美麗両面ポスター付き。

The super popular Otome game is now being turned into a manga! Several artists will have a hand at telling each male lead’s story – and those stories will be compiled into omnibuses. In this first collection, we follow the men “Hijikata Toshizou” [drawn by RURU], “Okita Souji” [drawn by Shinohara Hana], & “Harada Sannosuke” [drawn by Akatsuki Kaori].  Also included are beautiful posters drawn by RURU and Shinohara Hana.

    • Sad days. So the ending really does suck, as secretly predicted :<
      Well, that pretty much scars me from wanting to watch the anime.
      I don't like killing off bishies/main characters I like.

      Thanks for the heads up

      (and don't worry, I'll still summarize vol #2 ;D)

    • :< Sad days
      Another saying the ending sucked
      Damn, it really MUST have sucked!

      Shoots, rather than ask who died, I should ask, who lived?
      Also, did she get with anyone?
      (please don't tell me she ended up being the only one who survived and she's now going to live her life in memory of her fallen comrades…)
