Hakuouki Quick Q and Not Much

Wasn't Hakuouki supposed to be 12 eps? The trailer for ep 12 only said 'next ep' and not 'final ep' which would normally be used if the series was ending. It could just be a mistake, or maybe the way this studio does things, but... *confused* To be honest, I don't know what sort of story the anime wanted to portray, but things are certainly going full speed ahead to 'somewhere' (where? I have no idea) now. O_O; Historically, it looks like they have maybe one more year though. I guess I'll see where things go as they go. :/

Otherwise, was poking around bk1 and Amazon and noticed that HakuYou manga #4 is coming out July 23rd in Japan. There's no indication that it's the final volume, so it could be that the previous note about it being the last chapter actually meant last chapter for novel 2 and that the manga will in fact continue. (There was a bit of debate earlier along these lines on 2ch as well, and apparently, this was how things went with the story for novel 1.)

Ryuuki! XD

As far as how many eps. Hakuoki is, I hadn't heard (will check the comm), but I like the anime. (I also read Kaze Hikaru) The only thing I know about it is that it was a game first.

I hope that HakuYou would get licensed here in the US; I like the anime a lot, and the manga would be great to read. Another anime I started watching is Kaichou wa Maid-sama! and I've gotten the English releases that Tokyopop has so far.

Likewise about it being from a game. I saw the title here and there on some of J GH fic sites, but didn't really pay attention to it at the time. (Didn't even know it was from a game back then. ^^; )

It would really be nice if HakuYou would get an English release. I'm not sure if they'd consider releasing the light novels, so getting the manga would be really nice. From what I read of the first story, it seemed faithful to the novels. As for Kaichou wa, I've seen the title, but never watched it. I'll have to check it out. :)
