Movie Review: Hakuouki Part 2: Shikon Soukuu



Hakuouki Movie Part 2: Shikon Soukuu

This is the second half of the two-part Hakuouki movie which shows the final chapter of the Shinsengumis. 

I was not looking forward at all to watch this movie. Halfway through it dawned on me on how this movie made me appreciate the TV series, Hakuouki Reimeiroku. Even though it was ho hum, well at least they're very much alive! The movie also makes a connection with Reimeiroku. After all the movies and the series where all announced at the same time. 

Their impending doom makes me hang on every word they utter and breath in all their moves. (Okay that were lyrics from a song. Haha!) The way they died are different from the TV series. Not only do we have to relive the pain, we're now going to have two sets of painful memories of how they died. But remember on the first movie review, I mentioned there'll be a slightly different ending. All I can say is that you don't have to be cautious. You do need to watch this for closure. All the pain is gonna be worth it once you've watched this. Or not... I don't see the logic of doing this movie at all but the ending now made perfect sense to me.

I just have this overwhelming love for Kazama. I liked how he was given a less villain treatment and it gives you hope that there's always Kazama to look after Chizuri. And Hijikata..(Sigh!) Every scene is so powerful when you know he'll be gone any minute now.  

In general, Hakuouki is equally beautiful and traumatic. But I would only wish for Hakuouki to continue if only they would do a Sweet School Life series. Heck! ONA would do. Concentrates really hard. Law of Attraction...Unlock!
