LadyLavellan (13 days ago) #44399909You're very welcome! Haha, the subject makes up half the shot after all!

I'm actually not familiar with this series! :o But from what I have it understood after reading your comments in /r/AnimeFigures he's from a game, right? Must be filled with other beautiful characters!

Hahaa...that's so true, I had a great model!! :P

Yeah so it was a video game then Studio Deen made it into a series. The series is like 2 seasons maybe...I think. Then at some point it got a third season, but it's prequel to tell about how the Shinsengumi came to be. Then it also has a 2 part movie (I think it's 2, may be 3 though). If you don't want to invest the time in the series, at least watch the movie. I LOVED IT. Lots of beautiful gents too...but I love demon type shows, historical, military/shinsengumi....so this was like a home run for me. :D The movie also has really nice animation, very pretty.

Here is a trailer to the first movie:


The series lets you get to the know the chars more, because there are way more episodes for it to take it's time introducing you to everyone and such. So I watched it first then the movie. The movie has a few areas that differ and a different ending (which I prefer actually). Both are well worth the watch though, and the prequel is actually REALLY good too. Anyway, if you check it out, let me know what you think! :D

Gaby100 (13 days ago) #44400663Very good job and great photo! :)))))
I really hope that the next will be Hijikata san, always if there will be another figure of the boys... I begin to doubt this,I was hoping they already announced the release because seems strange to me limit the releases only to Okita and Saitou, I think doesn't make much sense, although I would like to see the whole group, at least Hijikata and Kazama , pleeease Koto çç...... I feel like an orphan without them..
Does anyone have good news about it?

Thank you soo much!!! I TOTALLY agree with you too! I hope they make all the boys, but DEFINITELY Kazama and Hijikata....I need those first!!! I would kill for an awesome Kazama!
