Ah, for those who wanted some timestamps… I’m sorry, but I was to lazy to do them… orz Maybe next time? ^^ Hmm… this time the ero scene is not so detailled, because I couldn’t bring myself to listen to that part too often… Blame Hosoyan’s incredible sexy voice for this! 8D
Track 1 (CD 1)
“The Shinsengumi exists to ensure the peace of the Bakumatsu.”
“For the sake of the Bakumatsu and Kondou I will fight.”
At the Ikedaya incident. Hijikata is leading a troop to the fighting place. His troop is in charge for not letting any of the enemies escape. In the process Hijikata slashes the enemies merciless. As always your family gets killed in that incident and Saitou is the one that rescues you and brings you to the headquarters of the Shinsengumi.
Track 2 (CD 1)
Someone (I assume it’s Heisuke, since he was watching over you in his own CD) reports Hijikata, that Saitou brought a unconscious woman (apparently it’s you), whose family was killed by roushin (masterless samurai) to the headquarters. He is not pleased about it, thinking that you might be a spy from the Choushu fraction, which was like the opposition to the Shinsengumi.
“Well, I need to see her face. Guide me to the room she is resting.”
When he sees you sleeping, he
gets aroused suspects you for being a spy and tries to wake you up harshly. “Oi… Wake up!”
“Hmm… You don’t react, huh? Well, it can’t be helped then…”
Since you won’t wake up, no matter what he does, he orders Heisuke to watch over you and inform him about everything that happens and asks him to tell Saitou to come to his room to explain him why he brought you to the headquarters. After that he leaves the room.
“Seriously… What is that Saitou thinking?…”
Track 3 (CD 1)
Hijikata is training with his men and because he is known as the demon captain, he works them to the bones. When you come to the dojo, he’s pissed, that you are walking around as you like. “YOU-! What are you doing here?”
Apparently, you were searching for a “Hijikata” to ask if you could work in the headquarters as a servant maid. Luckily he is the one you are searching for. But he rejects your offer to work for them and tells you to get lost. Since you look quite decent, the men that were training are staring at you instead of sparring, so Hijikata gets mad and yells at them. xD “What are you spacing out for?” “Dammit… Continue with the training and don’t get distracted by just a woman!”
Even though he turned your offer to work for the Shinsengumi down, you’re not giving up. When you come to his room to ask for a job again, he tells you how he is not accepting you in the headquarters and even yells at you. But in the end, he still lets you work for the Shinsengumi. In fact if Heisuke didn’t ask him to let you work for the Shinsengumi, he wouldn’t ever let you. I LOVE THE CONSISTENCY OF REJET’S WORKS. IT’S KIND OF NICE HOW EVERYTHING IS PERFECTLY CONNECTED IN THIS CD SERIES.
But even though he accepts you as a servant maid, he still yells at you and speaks in a harsh manner. As your eyes become teary and you begin to cry, he feels bad and changes his tone. If you are working hard enough though, he might acknowledge you, so he tells you to begin with your work. After you left his room, he mumbles how women are always so complicated and such a pain.
JUST ADMIT IT HIJIKATA, YOU ACTUALLY FELL FOR HER ALREADY…
Track 4 (CD 1)
You are working, I suppose you are cleaning the hallway or something like that, when Hijikata orders you to bring him tea to his room. Upon entering his room, you get really nervous and accidentally spill tea on his kimono. “You… Can’t even do something easy like this…? I thought Heisuke and Saitou praised you for being a good maid…” Seeing you nervous and slightly trembling, he asks you if you are afraid of him.
With that his ド-S side appears and he wonders, if you know what you should do now, after spilling tea onto him. Since you don’t seem to know what you should do, he gladly tells you what you should do: You are to strip him take off his wet kimono, since it’s your fault that it got wet. You are shocked at his words and he repeats his order again. ASLFKJAWKFJALDFJSKLJFLSJ DON’T SAY THAT WITH SUCH A TEASING VOICE!!!!!
“Hurry up, do it before I loose my temper.” When you say that you can’t do that, he asks you if it’s the first time you will see a man’s naked body. Of course you aren’t able to take
this hot man his teasings, so you are pretty embarrassed and blushing like a tomato. WHO WOULD NOT?!ヽ(´Д｀)人(´Д｀)人(´Д｀)ノ
“Hurry up, come here…! I’ll tell you what kind of face I’m seeing right now…”
Upon hearing that you come closer to him and then he whispers “I see a bright red and embarrassed face right now” in your ear. (;´Д`)ﾊｧﾊｧ I THOUGHT I’D DIE WHILE HE WHISPERED THAT IN MY EAR!!! “It’s a face every man would like to see.” Since your eyes are fixated on Hijikata, he begins to take off his kimono by himself.
Shocked you are trying to get some distance between you and him, but he won’t let you run away so easily and pins you down. “It’s not like I wouldn’t know that body of yours…”
AHAHA SOMEONE IS POPULAR WITH THE WOMEN HERE… Since you don’t know what to do he helps you by saying: “You have to stay by my side as my dog. You understand, right?” “Your answer?” He doesn’t even want to hear your answer, so in the end, he kisses you and surprisingly lets you off the hook after just one kiss.
Track 5 (CD 1)
Someone reports Hijikata, that there might be a enemy in the headquarters aka a spy and yes… the person in question is unfortunately you. Hijikata personally interrogates you after he heard the news. Well, he’s more intimidating you then interrogating you, as he yells at you for hurting some of his comrades.
It’s not like you did something to someone, but yeah I guess, you were at the wrong spot on a wrong time and your actions lead to an injury of a Shinsengumi member. He’s not only yelling at you, but also treating you very harshly like pushing you around. Eventually he draws his sword with the intention to kill you on the spot, but since you’re crying and apologizing desperately, he is convinced that you are not a spy. (Because spies don’t act that way. They are proud and would never beg for their lives like our heroine.)
Then he shows you a kind side and wants to accompany you to Kondou, so you can apologize for your actions. “If you tell him what happened honestly, he will believe you.” But since you are still crying he gets angry again: “Stop crying already!” “Tzz… That’s why women are a pain…” You manage to calm down a bit later and he accompanies you to Kondou’s room. “Thank you for believing me…? Hah… What a weird girl you are…” He tells you that it was his job to check whether you were truly a spy or not and adds that he hates women who cry, so you should not cry in front of him again… With that he lets you go to Kondou’s room alone.
Later at night, when he’s training alone you come to bring him water and a towel. In this scene you two actually have a pretty normal conversation, without yelling and intimidating from Hijikata. He tells you about the Shinsengumi and how he really admires Kondou and sees a perfect leader in him. The reason why Hijikata is strict is because Kondou is the kind leader type, so Hijikata has to play the other part. He even mentions Heisuke, Souji, Yamazaki and Saitou… How they are all a important part of the Shinsengumi. FROM WHAT HE TELLS YOU ABOUT THE SHINSENGUMI YOU CAN OBVIOUSLY SEE THAT HIS COMRADES ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO HIM.
In the end he implies that you are not alone anymore, since you are also a part of the Shinsengumi now. Of course you thank him for giving you the chance to become part of the Shinsengumi. As it becomes late he tells you to return to your own room, while commenting on the beautiful moon.
Track 6 (CD 1)
Some days later Hijikata is searching for Kondou, but unluckily Kondou is not in his room. “This person… Seriously… where is he?” When Hijikata looks around in Kondou’s room, as he waits for Kondou, he finds Kondou’s hidden sweets. Being pissed as he is, he eats the sweets. REVENGE IS SWEET! xD Of course you happen to walk into the room catching him red-handed, when he’s eating sweets. He let’s out a suprised “Ngh… W-what… Y-y-you….?!” “What are you doing here?” while trying to act as if nothing wrong happened. AH, SO CUTE!!! 8D
You ask him if it’s really okay to eat other peoples sweets without permission. 8D “Shut up…” “Anyway it’s Kondou’s fault so…” Seeing how Hijikata is denying that he liked the sweets, you can’t suppress a small laughter. Feeling awkward he orders you to come closer to him, so he can force feed you to eat some sweets too. xDD “Now you’re also guilty of eating others sweets.” When you pout, he tells you that he only told you to open your mouth, it was you who ate the sweet. After tasting the sweets you discuss which flavor the sweets have. Since he likes the flavor (manju) he tasted before, he eats some more, while you’re laughing at him. AHAHAHAHA THIS SCENE IS SO NOT HIJIKATA-LIKE!! 😀 😀
Track 1 (CD 2)
Hijikata is pissed because he can’t find Kondou again. “Where is Kondou? Why is it, that no one has seen him?!” When he sees you and asks you about Kondou’s whereabouts, you can’t help him either. Disappointed he tells you to return to your work, but upon seeing him so desperate, you want to search for Kondou as well. He agrees to your idea and tells you to inform him, if you’re to find Kondou. Finding Souji would be fine too. A bit later… You haven’t found Kondou or Souji, but Souji left a message, that he’s out in the city…
Actually Hijikata is vexed by Sannan (Yamanami Keisuke), who wants to leave the Shinsengumi (he was like the strategist of the Shinsengumi) and wants to talk with Kondou. Hijikata kind of blames him for leaving them in such a crucial time. Somehow you have enough guts to speak up, saying that Sannan might have his reasons and how the Shinsengumi is place, where people are free to go or stay. WOW, I CAN’T DECIDE IF THE HEROINE IS AWESOME OR STUPID FOR TALKING BACK… Hijikata gets really irritated upon hearing your opinion and drags you into his room as the result.
Track 2 (CD 2)
“Don’t think that you can escape, after what you said…” “A dog that misbehaves, huh?!” Since you are a dog to him, precisely his dog, he wants to punish and reeducate you for misbehaving, talking back to him. “Give me your hand…” “Remember… You are my dog!” With that he ties up your hands up on a pillar and then puts a collar onto your neck… Of course you are aroused frightened, because you don’t know what’s going to happen next, so your body is shaking. “Ah, your body is shaking…” “This face you’re making is quite nice.” “Since I saw you the first time, I wanted to see this face” WAH, YOU PERVERT!!!
You try to beg for mercy, but he only laughs and tells you that you don’t understand anything. When you ask him what he’s going to do, he teases you with: “I wonder, what I should do…” “Well.. I’ll show you the real ME. Not the vice captain of the Shinsengumi, but the real ME.” “Since you are mine… Show me your everything.” Even though you protest, that it’d be the first time someone would see your everything, he doesn’t give a crap about it and begins to undress you. To keep your voice down he kisses you. “Please stop…?” “What are you saying… I told you, didn’t I? You are my dog.” As he kisses you again, your eyes get teary and he wonders, why you are crying so fast… “Your skin is so fair…”
Since your skin is so fair, he wants to see your skin getting red, when you are aroused and red, so he kisses you more and touches your body more. “Doesn’t my body feels hot on your cold body…?” “You’re still crying…?” “Then.. I will let go of you now…” “I’ll wait for you to desire me. The day you’ll desire my body and even my heart.” “I’m looking forward for the day you’ll entirely become my dog.” With that he holds back and tells you to get up. “Now, you know the real ME. As I already told you… I’m not a gentle guy.” Before letting you go, he places a kiss on your neck.
Track 3 (CD 2)
The track begins with you running from the headquarters. Hijikata sees you and wants to know where you are heading off to. As you don’t answer and keep running, because you didn’t hear him properly, he chases after you. He assumed that you were to run away from the Shinsengumi, but it turns out that you were actually running an errand for Souji. He scolds you for not telling him the reason you were in a hurry immediately and tells you to come to his room after the errand.
In his room he apologizes for using harsh words and assuming that you would wanted to leave the Shinsengumi. When you ask him why he was so bothered about it, he tells you that he is worried about you. Worried that you might disappear someday. That’s something he doesn’t want to happen.
For him the Shinsengumi are his family. Kondou and Souji, who sometimes act like children are both brothers to him. They’ve known each other quite a long time and they all met each other at Kondou’s dojo. Even Harada, Saitou and Heisuke were students of that dojo. Kondou and Souji are very important persons in Hijikata’s life, that’s why he’s trying to give his best to support the Shinsengumi, even if he has to be a strict “demon” leader. Upon hearing his story, you tell him that Kondou and Souji are lucky to have someone who is so devoted to them. Secretly you are wishing to be a male too. When you get teary eyes, because you are truly touched, he tells you to come closer to him and embraces you. “You are my dog. So stay by my side forever.”
Track 4 (CD 2)
“Today you won’t be able to escape.” When you try to avoid him, he compliments your beautiful back. “I’m the only one who is allowed to see it.” With that he kisses you. He teases you, when you tell him to not talk so near your ears and whispers and blows into your left ear on purpose!!!（*/∇＼*）“Can you feel my voice?” After saying that, he nibbles on your ear to which you let out a soft moan. “That voice just now… let me hear more of it.” In order to hear your voice, he’s doing the same things with the other ear too. Then he kisses you roughly.
“Look at me.” “It seems like your body is burning up…” WHOSE FAULT DO YOU THINK IS THAT??!! After knowing, that you won’t be able to resist him much longer, you try to get away from him, but he won’t let you. “Don’t avert your gaze…” When you say, that you are embarrassed, he tells you that a dog doesn’t need those kind of feelings. “What are you feelings? Tell me.”
“Come on… Look at me.” With that something inside Hijikata begins to crumble. His emotions are flowing over and his voice becomes broken. “Where do you intend to go to?” “I don’t know know if how long I’m able to stay alive… But as long as I live, I will keep chasing you.” “Why aren’t you saying anything… Answer me!”
Without himself noticing, Hijikata begins to break down. “What.. is this..? Tears…?” Upon seeing his own tears dropping on the ground he laughs at himself and thinks of how pathetic he is. If the Shinsengumi were ever to disband or if Kondou or Souji were to leave the Shinsengumi… he wouldn’t know what to do. He would become alone for real. Seeing this fragile Hijikata in front of you is unbearable, so you promise to stay by his side forever. After hearing your words, he calms down slowly. “You are forever my… dog.” The track fades out with Hijikata kissing you passionately.
Track 5 (CD 2)
Hijikata is standing in the garden, when you see him. You walk together until you find an usual flower: a Forget-Me-Not. You both wonder why this flower is blooming here, when it’s not even spring yet. Anyway… Hijikata tells you that his first priority will always be the Shinsengumi, but you are his second priority even before his own life. You’ve become a very important part of his life too and even though you are not his first priority, he wants to treasure you as much as he can. “I want to protect you.” “So stay with me forever.” With that he kisses you. “I love you.” HNNN…. HEARING HIM SAYING THAT WAS WORTH THE WHOLE CHAINING AND DOMINATING I’VE BEEN THROUGH… (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
“I will fight for Kondou, Souji, my precious circle of friend and of course your sake.”
Hosoyan’s free talk was pretty serious, but still fun to listen to. I think his free talk is the longest of all free talks… It actually lasts about 12 minutes! In the beginning he mentions how he totally gets the “cool” and “handsome” vibes from Hijikata by just reading the script. xD There was this scene where Hijikata said “こちを向け“ (“Look at me.” or “Look this way.”). This phrase was really awkward for Hosoyan, because if he were to say those lines, he would be much more formal like “Would you please look this way” or “I’d be happy if you would look this way”. When Hosoyan said that, it sounded so incredibly cute!! (❁´◡`❁)*✲ﾟ*
Moreover Hosoyan states that Hijikata is much more aggressive than he could ever be. Despite Hijikata being really aggressive, Hosoyan really admires him for his caring side for his comrades. The character he wanted to voice if he could chose would be Okita Souji, because he’s a cool bishounen. And he thinks that it would be funny to do all those coughings… LMAO But he wouldn’t mind doing Saitou either. AAHAHAHA I LAUGHED SO HARD HERE… AH HOSOYAN… DON’T BE SO CUTE, SERIOUSLY…
Puh… This volume’s length is about 1 h 40 min… o.O No wonder, it took me so long to review it. xDD To be honest… I wasn’t used to Hosoyan’s deep voice at first, but after hearing the whole thing I thought that it’s actually pretty fitting the character image of a rough older man. Ah, I apologize for all the fangirling… I recently became a big fan of Hosoyan, after hearing him singing the first time, so yeah excuse me… *bricked*
Hmm… Hijikata is… really scary sometimes, but despite being a strict and harsh leader, he also has kinder and softer sides. Hijikata suprisingly turned out very…. human. At first he was known as the strict demon vice captain, but as time passes you’d also get to know his human sides, such as eating snacks after being pissed or breaking down and opening up to you. His break down was really intense, I was totally caught up in that good voice acting. It was pretty nice to hear so much facets of Hijikata.
Some of you might be
disappointed shocked by the small amount of ero time in this CD… After Heisuke’s CD one might think that the upcoming volumes would get even more smexy, but there wasn’t much going on in this volume. Not that it was necessary anyway. Actually I’m glad that there weren’t too many ear rape ero scenes, since I couldn’t even handle those few properly… (/ω＼) Dunno, maybe it’s my Hosoyan bias, but those whispers and kissing sound were deadly for me…
I really liked how detailed Hijikata was portrayed, but his do-S side was pretty… uhm… do-S? xD Well… I don’t know what to think about the tying and collar situation, but being called as his dog is not exactly romantic… Even though Hijikata means it romantically (at least near the end of the CD’). Anyways… I really liked this volume… Hmm… Hijikata would be on par with Saitou on my ranking?
Oh, yes, only one volume left! Well, at least before the sequel will be released… 🙂
