List of Hakuouki Games, Anime, and Manga

A datasheet for those who are confused by the many publications of Hakuoki series. :)
In short:
☆ All games are in full voice. Except for Chizuru, since she's supposed to be "you", she can't be voiced. She's voiced in Reimeiroku & Musouroku since she's no longer "you".
There are only 6 games: Hakuoki, Zuisoroku, Yuugiroku 1+2, Reimeiroku, and Musouroku. The exact same game kept getting ported to new consoles. Bonus features are added without changing what's already there. So the walkthrough works for every version.

Cover Art
Title & Description

Game #1 : The Main Story
Hakuoki: Shinsengumi Kitan【薄桜鬼 〜新選組奇譚〜】
The origin of this series. Ch1~3 is common route. Starting from Ch4 you'll enter one of these six routes: Hijikata, Okita, Saitou, Toudou, Harada, or Normal/Kazama when you don't get any of the first five.
Personal routes are parallel universes with different stories and different endings.
Hakuoki Portable【薄桜鬼 ポータブル】
Port of PS2 Hakuoki. Everything's the same except for an additional feature:
Picture Scroll of Comrades【新選組遺聞 戦友絵巻】One short novel for each main character. These were originally on Dengeki Girl's Style, now with voice acting and newly colored artworks.
Hakuoki DS【薄桜鬼 DS】
Port of PSP Hakuoki. Everything's the same except for an additional feature:
Shinsengumi Quiz Game【新選組質疑試合】This is a mini game which you choose a character to side with, and compete with others in answering questions ASAP.
2010/3/18 Nintendo DS
Hakuoki: Shinsengumi Kitan【薄桜鬼 〜新選組奇譚〜】
Mobile phone version provided by GREE(グリー). Only playable in Japan.
2010/12/17 mobile phone
Hakuoki 3D【薄桜鬼 3D】
Port of DS Hakuoki. Everything's the same except for
1) 3D effect
2) Photograph feature.
2011/11/24 Nintendo3DS
Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom
North America version localized by Aksys Games.
It's subbed, i.e. the voice act remains original. The translation is very good. I'd give 9 out of 10.
It should be the same as Hakuoki Portable, but the picture scrolls (short novels) aren't there.

Game #2 : The Side Story (Fandisc)
Hakuoki: Zuisouroku【薄桜鬼 随想録】
A collection of short stories that take place at the same time of the main story. Although this game can function by itself (disc of original game isn't needed), it's better to play the original or watch the anime first to understand what's going on. Besides the main 6, there are also stories for Shinpachi, Yamazaki, Sannan, and Kondou. Unlockable features include SSL (Sweet School Life), aka Hakuoki Highschool.
Hakuoki: Zuisouroku Portable【薄桜鬼 随想録 ポータブル】
Port of PS2 Zuisouroku. Everything's the same except for additional features:
1) New common route: Event #3
2) Character narration when clicking on the summary of each story.
Hakuoki: Zuisouroku DS【薄桜鬼 随想録 DS】
Port of PSP Zuisouroku. Everything's the same except for additional features:
1) Picture Scroll of Comrades: 4 short novels with voice + newly colored artworks.
2) New voice clip when you poke the lower screen while watching the CGs in gallery.
3) Memory Fragments【想いの欠片】- collect to unlock artworks.
4) Hakuoki Travelogue【薄桜鬼紀行】- intro of important locations and events.
2011/2/17 Nintendo DS

Bundle of the two above
Hakuoki Twin Pack【薄桜鬼 ツインパック】
Hakuoki Portable Twin Pack【薄桜鬼 ポータブル ツインパック】

Two games stuffed in one pretty paper box. 100% the same. Not a special edition.
Its only purpose is to allow fans to conveniently buy 2 games at the same time.
Hakuoki: Junsouroku【薄桜鬼 巡想録】
PS2 Hakuoki + PS2 Zuisouroku in 1 disc. Everything's the same except for these features:
1) Action animation system (AAS) that allows characters to make detailed movements, such as eyes blinking, mouth moving, and even breathing too!
2) Download contents (DLC) from PlayStation®Store. Such as artworks, novel, Picture Scroll of Comrades, and Event #3.

Game #3 : Mini Games
Hakuoki: Yuugiroku【薄桜鬼 遊戲録】
Short story that force you to play crappy mini games to reach the end. Each route can be done in 25 minutes, giving the whole game <3 hrs of playtime. For its ridiculously short playtime, cheaply-made mini game, and eye-popping high price, its reputation is pathetic. Doubtlessly daylight robbery.
The merits: cute chibi character, beautiful artworks of Kazuki Yune, and a sweet event when finishing all routes. But I still say don't buy unless it's 50% off.
Hakuoki: Yuugiroku DS【薄桜鬼 遊戲録 DS】
Port of PSP Yuugiroku. Everything's the same except for these additional features:
1) Karuta (Japanese traditional card game) with CGs as its cards.
2) Hakuoki Clock with voice messages.
Now this is more like a proper game.
2011/4/28 Nintendo DS

Game #4 : Prequel
Hakuoki: Reimeiroku【薄桜鬼 黎明録】
Link to my introduction pages. Reimeiroku is the alpha and omega beginning and ending of the whole story. Its main plot is the prologue to Hakuoki, while its epilogue takes place after Hakuoki. So be careful if you don't want to see spoiler of Hakuoki's endings. Unlike Zuisouroku, this is a stand-alone game, which can enjoyed with or without playing the others.
2010/10/28 PS2
Hakuoki Reimeiroku Portable【薄桜鬼 黎明録ポータブル】
Port of Reimeiroku. Everything's the same except for these additional features:
1) Konatsu Biyori【小夏日和】:New events in Zuisouroku style, with 6 new CGs.
2) History lecture by Serizawa.
3) Screen capture function.
Hakuoki Reimeiroku DS【薄桜鬼 黎明録DS】
Port of PSP Reimeiroku. Everything's the same except for the additional features:
1) Bonus short story: Nightmare【夢見抄】with 1 new CG.
2) CG review by Ryunosuke and Serizawa.
Hakuoki Reimeiroku Nagorigusa【薄桜鬼 黎明録 名残り草】
Port of PSP Reimeiroku. Everything's the same except for these features:
1) Action animation system (AAS) that makes characters blink, move lips, and even breathe!
2) Bonus short story: The Day When the Oni Caught the Flu 【鬼が霍乱する日】 with 6 new CGs.
3) CG review by Hijikata, Okita, Saitou, Toudou, and Harada.

Game #5 : Mini Games again
Hakuouki: Yuugiroku 2 - Matsuri Hayashi to Taishitachi
【薄桜鬼 遊戯録 弐 祭囃子と隊士達】

Hakuouki: Yuugiroku Twin Pack

Bundle of 2 Yuugiroku PSP games.

Anime Adaptation

Bonus OVA
Bonus OVA
TV season 2 (Hekketsu-roku)
S2 key visual

OVA series (Sekka-roku)
Hakuoki: Shinsengumi Kitan【薄桜鬼 〜新選組奇譚〜】
Hakuoki: Hekketsuroku【薄桜鬼 碧血録】
(Season 2)
Hakuoki: Sekkaroku【薄桜鬼 雪華録】(OVA series)

1. Season 1 is a mixture of the first half of the first game and Zuisouroku.
2. Season 2 is Ch4~8 of Hijikata route, while adding original story so each character can have a chance to shine. Which is absolutely brilliant! Because if only following Hijikata route, all other characters would either be vaporized or degraded to plot devices.
3. There are 2 bonus OVAs for buying all DVDs of TV series. Each is a 10-minute side story plus a 3-minute SSL.
4. Sekkaroku is 6 episodes of short events that took place during season 1. Hijikata route all the way, only with more screentime for other characters.

The first 2 seasons are licensed by Sentai Filmworks in North America, released with English dub (and original voice).

Hakuoki: Reimeiroku 【薄桜鬼 黎明録】 (Season 3)

Prequel of the previous 2 seasons. Remix of all 6 routes in Reimeiroku game.

New Project key visual
Hakuoki Movie

The movie, scheduled for 2013, will be a dilogie with brand new story written by the original producer Fujisawa.
← This key visual is for Sekkaroku #6, Reimeiroku, and movie altogether. So it doesn't hint anything about the movie.

Manga Adaptation

Hakuoki: Junrenka 1~2【薄桜鬼 巡恋華 1~2】(Ended)
By Akatsuki Kaori, Shinohara Hana, RURU, and Kiri Mochi, Sylph magazine.
Manga adaptation of everyone's personal routes in the game.
Book 1: prologue, Hijikata, Okita, and Harada route.
Book 2: Saitou, Toudou, and Kazama route.
These are digests of personal routes. Not drawn in sequence, but jumps back and forth between events. Hence many readers complain it's hard to understand without playing the game.

Hakuoki 1~3【薄桜鬼】
By Ninomiya Sachi, currently running on B's-Log Kyun magazine.
Manga adaptation of the game, Hijikata route.

This version is criticized for not being pretty enough. But I like how she draws movements.
