Hakuouki Reimeiroku and Paper-Based Loot from Japan

I went to Japan at the beginning of October this year and I bought a lot of not needed, but much loved goodies! First part of my loot begins here…

Paper-based loot from Japan!

In comparison to my previous visit, I did not buy as many anime-related goodies. A break-down of the paper-based loot above:

- Vampire Knight Artbook
- Hakuouki Clear Folders
- Hakuouki – Okita Souji Key-ring
- Hakuouki – Okita Souji Stickers (yes I am Okita obsessed *__*)
- Hakuouki – Saito Hajime Bag Holder
- Hetalia Axis Powers Poster
- Durarara Poster
- Dengeki Girl’s Style October issue

The Dengeki Girl’s Style magazine came with a special booklet, packed with information on the new Hakuouki game (Hakuouki Reimeiroku)! I am not sure whether anyone is playing the game or has played it already… If you have, how do you find it?

Hijikata is too pretty... *_*

From a quick browse through the booklet,  the game is set before the previous games and the protagonist is a guy named Ibuki Ryuunosuke. The story follows that Ryuunosuke’s mother intended for him to become a samurai, thus he had a very strict upbringing. This led him to dislike samurai in general. After his mother had passed away, he travelled to Kyoto aimlessly. On the way, he got mugged and beaten up (why is he so weak when he had received proper samurai training!?); got rescued by someone who belongs to a ‘aspire-to-be samurai’s’ group and was forced to tag along with them. The group is somehow linked with the Shinsengumi and that is how the protagonist gets all close and personal with our favourite bishies! Some screenshots from the booklet after the cut.

Back from Hiatus…

Hey everyone! Thanks for all of the comments. I haven’t got time to read them all now but I will reply to them as soon as I can. Sorry for the sudden hiatus… Life and work have caught up with me and I have been dealing with them until now! Back for good this time. Playing Lucian Bee’s RESURRECTION SUPERNOVA on the PSP as of now, so expect a review soon ^^!
