Reasons You Should Get Hakuoki

Kazama_MoM_Feb2012

Do you have the Hakuoki LE? Why not? There an awesome soundtrack (list after the jump). How about this question: Did you read our last Man of the Month on Hakuoki.com yet? No? Shame on you! Chikage Kazama is our last featured character, in “The Devil You Know” in Adage magazine: http://li.brari.us/motmkazama

Our editor Ben Bateman also did an exclusive interview with Japanator for Hakuoki. Check it out here: http://www.japanator.com/japanator-exclusive-interview-hakuoki-dotfb-22078.phtml

    I LOVE this game! I have already played it 3 times since picking it up @ Gamestop on the 14th. :)

    Just got the CE today. Anyone know the composer of the soundtrack? I’d like to know who to credit when I play the soundtrack.

    Thanks, Aksys Games! I’m from Spain, so my game is imported. I’m loving it!! Really, really: Thanks you *-*

    I always wanted to play this visual novel (I played another visual novels, but I wanted a otome, too), so I can’t stop playing ^^. If the game is a sucess, I would like to see the fandisk here… >w<

    The composer is Kenji Kaneko, I believe.

    One minor gripe with the art book for the CE;
    Bio info for Kashitaro Itou and Genzaburo Inou is actually the info for Keisuke Sanan and Isami Kondou. Other than that, awesome CE!

    Love my game & soundtrack.

    But one question I hope someone can answer:
    -How do you save on the game? I don’t mean quick save but actually saving.

    Kay54… Triangle for “menu” and “save” ^^U That’s all.

    Playing Hijikata now~ *-* I’m loving the game

    Thanks for bringing this over! I’ve never played this type of game before, but when I started Hakuoki, I was up til 5 AM playing because I couldn’t put it down. Loving the soundtrack, too. :D

    Reasons you should NOT get Hakuoki:

    1-If you’re a guy.

    Why doesn’t EVERYONE have an LE edition! I saw this game at gamestop and I was like, oh hey cool, but then I realized it was a visual novel and I was like: MUST HAVEN NOW! Who cares about the price I needed to have this game no matter what.

    So I bought it, simple as that.

    And I do not regret one dollar that I have spent on it, it was all worth it because not only is it an otome (/cough cough YOU SHOULD ENDORSE MORE TRANSLATIONS OF AWESOME VISUAL NOVELS) it was about samurai. And how their reign was coming to an end.

    The story was beautiful, the artwork was gorgeous, the men need to be REAL (so that i may have hope that men with this spirit are actually real xD and not just in my fictional psp games )

    I love how it wasn’t too cheesy, and there were dramatic/angst moments. And I especially love the original japanese voice actors. You know that only originals can bring the most justice to a character. Thank you so much for bring this game over. It is a dream come true for me and I’m sure many other people who have been dying for more visual novels to be brought over to the US.

    Currently my favorite game, of ALL TIME. (Ohkei, maybe just second to the persona series xD)

    Definitely translate more Haukouki games. The new one (Hakuouki Bakumatsu) coming out has gameplay instead of just dialogue, so it might appeal to everyone. Thanks again for bringing Demon of the Fleeting Blossom over it really means a lot!

    I would totally preorder this twice if it were on the 360. Sadly, that’s the only system I own, and that’s not gonna change any time soon.

    I loved this game! I didn’t put it down till I finished all the story paths. Please, please bring some more of this game series over and I promise to preorder them. I really want for Hakuouki: Yuugi Roku to be brought over next as the screen shots look really interesting.

    Thank you very much for bringing this game over! I love this game and I love the fact that you have kept the japanese voices. The soundtrack is also wonderful! ^_^

    Thanks again and hope that you can bring some more games over! Definitely will pre-order them! THUMBS UP!

    Played this and tears were rolling down my face!
    I loved it!
    I hope more Otome games are able to make it over here in the US.

    I just wanted to say that I really appreciate the localization of Hakuoki ;A; It’s been stuck in my PSP ever since, and even though I’ve completed the whole game and collected all the CGs, I still replay often. I don’t know if there’s enough fanbase out there for you guys to bring in more Otome games, but I’m certainly one of the many out there who would continue supporting Aksys’ localized version of Otome games, if that’s any form of (superbly weak) motivation at all!

    Thank you so very much for bringing this awesome game to us! m(_ _)m

    Also I’m wondering, will you be doing Hiiro No Kakera too?
    That otome game is about to start it’s own animated series and I’ve been wanting to play the game for years now.
    Just wanna throw that out there~

    ^-^ Thank you so much for brining Hakuoki! This is such a dream come true for me, and I truly appreciate the localization of this game. It would be so meaningful if you could bring in more of this series or other otomate games for us! <333 It was such an emotional yet action oriented game with such a deep story line that made you fall in love with each character. I truly love this game and I hope that in the future there will be more <333 Thank you so much!!!

    This game was fun. It still is, really…
    I think it’s also enjoyable for men XD
    Aksys, you rock.

    I’ve only had the game for a week and I think it’s absolutely amazing. I have yet to hardly put it down. Aksys you are awesome for translating it to english
