Hakuoki (Season 3) Dawn of the Shinsengumi

1863 - As political discord erupt into violence, the Tokugawa Shogunate sends a force of masterless samurai called the Roshigumi to Kyoto. However, assassination has split them into two opposing factions: the stronger is led by the brutal Serizawa Kamo and the lesser by the more honorable but less assertive Isami Kondo. It is to this pack of wolves that Ryunosuke Ibuki is forced to be a virtual slave by blood debt, hating the samurai and everything they stand for. Yet, as he sees how the other half live, he begins to believe that there may still be a chance, for both himself and Japan. Historical truth provides the bloody groundwork for cloak, sword & dagger on an epic scale in Hakuoki Reimeiroku, the spectacular prequel to Hakuoki ~ Demon of the Fleeting Blossom!
