Played some more Hakuouki.
I've got to say, I'm getting a little tired of the game. I've done all the routes except Kazama (which I am trying to do now) and Hijikata (since his is the longest, and most likely the most canon). The Saito route was both long and slow, most likely do to the fact that Chizuru spends most of the time standing around watching people talk. I get that they made her bland so the player can slip themselves into her, but it made for one boring-ass route. Harada and Heisuke were a lot of better, especially in the Chizuru department. And to be honest, Saito just was not all that interesting to me. I prefer characters who are more animated, I guess.
So far my route preference is
Harada > Heisuke > Okita > Saito
