For any of you unfamiliar with the Hakouki story, it is based off a novel and follows the story of Chizuru Yukimura in search of her father in the Edo period of Japan. Along the way she meets the Shinsengumi and begins living among an all-male military unit. As war rages on, demons enter the story, testing the honor of Chizuru and the warriors she has come to love.

This game has everything from betrayal to intrigue to seduction. You’ll meet samurai with supernatural powers along your adventure. That’s all in the story, but the beauty of this game is in the art. It’s highly aesthetic.Hakouki
