Retro Encounter 298 Hakuoki Memories of the Shinsengumi

The samurai and demon boys are back in town, as are our panelists as we finish our discussion of Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi for Ladies Otome Month here on Retro Encounter. This time, discussion centers around two more specific routes: one where Shinsengumi antagonist and demon Kazama helps you out (wow, so historically accurate), and the titular route where you get to know the tragic figure Hijikata in depth during his ill-fated mission to preserve the Shinsengumi during modernization and the dissolution of the shogunate. Bonus: Niki discovers photo mode and we discuss some pretty great otome crossover ideas…along with a round of “guess the Shinsengumi samurai based on historical photos.” You can even play along with that last one on social media in the near future!

Featuring: Hilary Andreff, Audra Bowling, Niki Fakhoori, Lucy Gray; Edited by Brian Ingemanson
