Hakuouki (2012)


Chizuru was the daughter of a doctor. her father left to work as a volunteer doctor and moved to Kyoto without his daughter. as time passed by, Chizuru started to worry about her father and decided to go to Kyoto in search of her father. she was attacked on the way after witnessing a fight between an Oni and the Shinsegumi. she was rescued by the Shinsengumi and was brought back to their. Chizuru discovered that the Shinsengumi were also looking for her father. she then tagged along with their search and adventure.

the story had a historical and political background to it. unfortunately, Chizuru was a frustratingly helpless character. the overly protective male characters made the anime felt like a Reverse Harem. despite the tiresome Chizuru, the rest of the male characters each shone in their own ways, not to mention the fight scenes that had one so caught up with it. besides Chizuru, the other downside of the series was not having a strong plot. the search tended to just went on and on.
