Aoiza Ibunroku, Moujuutsukai to Oujisama drama CDs

This will be a quick review of the following: Bunmei Kaika Aoiza Ibunroku Saien Pre-order drama CD (that came with my game), Bunmei Kaika Aoiza Ibunroku Sakura Ranman ~Yoidore Romanki~ and Moujuutsukai to Oujisama ~Snow Bride~: ~Omoide no Hana~. At least for Moujuutsukai to Oujisama’s, it is expected that you are aware of the spoilers of both games already.

Bunmei Kaika Aoiza Ibunroku Saien: Housen’s Route

This continues from the (short) PrologueSanyuutei Housen (CV: Koyasu Takehito) works as a hanashika, though he soon joins Aoiza on their journeys. As expected, he’s well-spoken and often stops at nothing to learn about all sorts of information. Aoi comes to enjoy conversing with him as she grows accustomed to the Meiji era too. This is unlocked after finishing your second route in the game, so it’s best to read someone else’s route prior to this.


Bunmei Kaika Aoiza Ibunroku Saien: Hisoka’s Route

This continues from the (short) Prologue. Sarutobi Hisoka (CV: Nakai Kazuya) runs Miyoshino and often helps Aoiza out with their work such as the finances. He also has excellent skills in cooking, and comes from the same birth village as Rin. Though he doesn’t speak much, he’s extremely observant and looks out for Aoi in his own way. This is unlocked after finishing your first route in the game, so it’s best to read someone else’s route prior to this.


Bunmei Kaika Aoiza Ibunroku Saien: Kikaku’s Route

This continues from the (short) PrologueKotobuki Kikaku (CV: Suzumura Kenichi) has an extremely serious personality, so he takes everything word for word. This leads to him often lecturing the others even if it’s clearly meant as a joke…and others also teasing him (lol). Even though he doesn’t accept Aoi’s existence at first, he is soon convinced and ends up protecting his “princess” very faithfully and carefully.


Bunmei Kaika Aoiza Ibunroku Saien: Hachi’s Route

This continues from the (short) PrologueHachisuka Youta (CV: Suzuki Tatsuhisa), nicknamed as “Hachi” by others, is cheerful and optimistic. This personality of his in turn, rubs off Aoi from the very start. He also does his best to cheer Aoi up. Though you could say that Hachi is slow on the uptake and often teased by others, he loves his place in Aoiza. He usually does backstage stuff or very minor performing roles, but still takes pride in them.


Bunmei Kaika Aoiza Ibunroku Saien: Seiji’s Route

This continues from the (short) Prologue. Oosuga Seiji (CV: Ishida Akira) is a a soldier and a regular watcher of Aoiza’s performances. He grew interested in Aoi from first sight and would talk to her when he can, though he does get along (somewhat) with the rest of the members too. Seiji is always polite and thinking for Aoi he’s the most adorable thing ever. Aoi finds it comfortable talking to him and they hit off from the start. It is advised to read any of the previous routes first before this since it would make more sense that way (he is only unlocked on the second playthrough for a reason).


Bunmei Kaika Aoiza Ibunroku Saien: Nanami’s Route

This continues from the (short) Prologue. Suwa Nanami (CV: Miki Shinichirou) is a laidback guy who would rather laze around with some alcohol, even though he’s rather nimble with his hands. He also likes to slip away to gamble and Kikaku often lectures him for setting a bad example to the younger ones. But in truth, he takes care of the members in his own way, as suggested by how Hachi relies on him and  calls him oyabun. For Aoi, Nanami also looks out for her and would treat her to a good meal each time she does something successfully. He even follows up Aoi’s (lame) puns lol.
