I'm sure my opinion is influenced by the fact that I live in a small country where all tv-programs are subbed and I'm used to hearing shows and movies in the original foreign languages, but I'm only happy to get Hakuouki in Japanese. I wish I could have gotten the Persona games in Japanese, too. It's so weird/offputting/breaking disbelief when a character who is Japanese is speaking with a yankee accent. Especially when they try to pronounce Japanese names.
I'm not sure if the audience is so resistant to Japanese audio. With Sakura Wars V, the PS2 version outsold the Wii version by a wide margin, and if forum complaints are of any indication, a lot of people wanted that version specifically because it had the Japanese audio version too. At any rate, I'm sure the reason to this decision was based on cost alone, and that I can understand. The sales expectations must be very low, so the cost of English voicing would be too high. I'm glad they try to keep their costs down, it just increases the chances that Hakuouki will be financially successful and we'll get more titles like this. Sometimes I wonder if Sakura Wars V would't have been a failure if they hadn't bothered with the dubbing.
