barges into the convo unannounced
I recently played Nightshade and then picked up the remastered Hakuoki. The entire time I was on Hanzo’s route I was like “Chikage bae? Is that you???”.
And I’d just all around recommend Nightshade on the protagonist alone. Having played Nightshade and Hakuoki within days of each other, Nightshade’s protagonist definitely has more oomph and agency than Hakuoki’s. Yukimura has her moments but yeesh…I felt like she did a whole lot of nothing (I still love the game doe).
