Hakuouki lol [Apr. 17th, 2010|12:36 pm]
[Tags|, ]

LMAO, this week was so simple murdering I don't even. It practically ate me up, so if I didn't respond to stuff it was because I was busy checking my timetable, change it etc.etc. ;;
Gosh, I just hope it will be less stressing in the future or else I won't survive university. xD'

Other than that, after painful hours and days of loading, reloading and so on, I finally managed to watch two episodes of one of the spring anime I was interested in.
Hakuouki. ♥
That being said, only shortly before the series started airing I found out that it was an otome-game. Which usually isn't good for the plot because unfortunately the main character tends to turn into a mary sue in such stories, but yeah.
The art is sooo pretty though and while I usually run away when the anime is so overfilled with bishies(when even I see them as such xD), this time the prettiness and stuff won me over. Also the seiyuu cast, which makes me lol so much, I am practically dying every episode..

The protagonist Chizuru, aka, Fllay Allster. Seriously, Houko is awesome when it comes to voice-acting characters differently, but that she chose to make Chizuru sound like Fllay kills me every time. I stand there, half-expectant for the character to turn into an insane bitch (I LOVE FLLAY OKAY XD'), though that unfortunately isn't likely to happen, since otome-girls are supposed to be sweety-sweety.xD

The male lead, Hijikata (I think? xD) was it, aka Lockon Stratos./dies so much
I know this seiyuu has more a habit of voicing the characters alike, but he sounds exactly like Lockon (for example I don't get Lockon-vibes when I listen to Kojiro from Pokemon or Kazuya Yanagiba from Wedding Peach xDD), every time when I am not looking at the picture I think Lockon is talking./sobs
Since they are most probably going for his route then... this would mean LockonxFllay. A pairing of fucked up psychos now that would have been an actual interesting combination. xDDD
(I'm not an expert on adaptions of anime-adaptions on such games, since the only one I know is Meine Liebe where they decided to make the main character a really minor one. xD)
Also this is the pic which got me interested, he is really damnit handsome. ♥ xD

In the front there is Okita Souji, aka, Kirihara from Prince of Tennis, LMAO. Ehm, yes, at least he doesn't sound too much like Ginji, Shikamaru, Kadaj or god knows who else he voices. xD
He is so far my favourite, his attitude is just plain awesome. xDDD
Also I don't want to be shallow, but I find him kind of... sexy? Somehing like that. /sobs
Saito Hajime is in the background as a bishie, which kills me since the writer of Kenshin made him none so... LOL.xD
His seiyuu is for example Sengoku from PoT(LOL) and............ EIKICHI MISHINA from Persona 2. WTH? WTF? XDDDDD
It's only good he sounds like neither or else I would have an even harder time to take him seriously than I already have. He is one handsome man, though. xD

There, more Saito-handsomeness~ and in comparison to his Kenshin-self. xD

This shota-bait - or at least he looks like one - is called Toudou Heisuke and he wouldn't get catch my interest per se, but lol, his voice actor is Alle/Halle from Gundam 00 and he goes a bit more into Halle, when I remember that correctly. xD

Other then that there is also a Kamille running around, na, the character name is Sannan Keisuke and a Sanosuke which didn't get my attention so far if he appeared already. xDD

So as the curious person I am, I of course had to check Okita's route, since I would go for him if I played the game.
I so shouldn't try to find myself a guy, the one I like the most in Meine Liebe turns out to be my brother and the one here dies apparently no matter if you get the good or bad ending, lol. xD'

Okay, enough time spent on that. There are other anime I want to check out, Angel Beats for example, though I doubt I will like it. xDD
Or Tono to Issho (was the name?), because lol, Gaku.

The art is purely wonderful!! I love it so much. It's a pity that I don't find such games/animes very interesting ;;

I know right? The art is sooo amazing and pretty. I usually can't really go with such otome-stories myself, I rest my hope now on the fantasy&historical-story the anime is supposed to have. xD'

and I lol'd so much on the "Lockon Stratos" part too. Lockon fanart in those clothes get? Anyway, I immedatily after seeing opening thought "otome game orz", but as for now the show didn't kill me with boredom. So maybe it won't be that bad? uh.

Hey, that would look good. Draw that, I dare you! xD
Yeah, I saw it a bit earlier because I checked previously if the anime had come out already on YT and then I stumbled across the game and was like: ".... oh shit, otome game.
Screw it, the art is too pretty." xDD
Well, I hope it get's more interesting when the characters start to change into oni and stuff. xD'

The art is really lovely and the guys are really... handsome, I am just not sure if it is a high quality story behind this. ;;

B-BTW, I wanted to ask you if it's okay that I add you back as a friend?

Haha, I also watched the first two episodes of Hakuouki recently *was attracted by the almost overly pretty art as well 8D* (lol, the funny thing is I also tend to avoid reverse-harem bishie anime like the plague xD Maybe I've just been feeling more open-minded lately? lol)

I'll probably give it a few more episodes to see if it's really worth watching, but so far I'm starting to feel a little wary about it because of the main girl. xD; As you said, otome protagonists tend to be mary sues and so far, I can already see her going down that path with how she's constantly getting herself into trouble yet always gets magically saved by someone else and how the guys accept her so readily when she hasn't even done anything that should realistically prove herself as something more than just a damsel in distress >_>; Here's hoping she'll get some proper character development before I get annoyed enough to drop this xD I'm not expecting her to be anywhere near as awesome as my favourite "annoying damsel-in-distress"-to-"epic heroine" character (Youko from Twelve Kingdoms *__* <333) but at least a little bit of development to show that she can be a somewhat strong and independent person, mentally, emotionally, and/or physically would be nice. xD

As for the guys, they still seem pretty cookie-cutter to me at the moment, despite being pretty to look at xD Hopefully, they'll develop some interesting personalities/backstories too as the story progresses too (though yes, Okita is currently the most interesting). I was also kind of taken aback by bishie-Saitou xD I haven't seen Kenshin yet, but I have watched Peacemaker Kurogane, and his appearance in that was arguably handsome, but definitely not bishie. xD In terms of appearance though, I especially like Heisuke, even though I'm not usually into the shota-bait characters XD; (well, he isn't really a shota, just younger than the rest of them, so that's not too bad xD) I just really like his design for some reason xDDD

The art is too pretty to withstand looking into it. xDD
(Perhaps? I decided to screw the reverse harem bishie-thing this one time because soooo pretty art. xD')

Yes, she totally gives off those vibes of the girl which is totally useless but all the guys are falling in love with her for no explained reason. Well, the group has a good reason to accept her so far since she is the daughter of the man they are searching for, though I do hope she grows some spine and doesn't only have a pretty shojo-smile or anything like that. xD'
Since she is voiced like one of my favourite characters in Gundam SEED, who was really insane for some time, I would love her to see her growing that way, but duh, that's really not likely to happen. xD
Youko from Twelve Kingdoms? I haven't checked that anime, what is special about her?

Yes, they didn't show much depth yet, lol, for how many episodes is the series planned? To see if there is room for enough developement of all those characters because I find them already... quite a lot. xDDD
(Okita, yes, I like his way of speaking somehow? xD)
Oh,I see. So he wasn't a bishie there as well? Since the writer of Kenshin said he got so many complaints about drawing Saito not as bishie, haha. xD
Heisuke? Hm... he kinda reminds me of a squirrel, don't ask why. xDDD

This voice cast kills me ... really.
But come on, KOBATO already fu**ing killed me with that.
Miki-san, try to sound NOT Lockonish for a change!

Seriously ... Alle-Halle, too?
Oh my ... you make me want to watch this series ... my ...
