Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom - Souji Okita's Route


I've been a fan of the Hakuouki series ever since it came out as an anime. Even though this particular PSP game has been out in the Japan in 2009, it recently came out this month as an English version and keeping their original Japanese voice actors! (*o*)

Hijikata is normally the obvious choice since the anime leaned more on to his story line and I've known a lot of fangirls who like him. But to me, Okita is number one. Ever since he went onscreen and gave that cocky smile, I knew I was going to love his character.


I want the art book! ToT

So having finished his route first in the game, I took this initiative to provide a guide on how to complete all of his Media Gallery CGs. I haven't seen guides anywhere yet and hopefully this can help some fangirls who are also interested in playing the game.

I do have to admit that I got some help in completing Okita's route but it was a Japanese guide. Google Translate translates like shit inaccurately so I had some trouble figuring out what choices you have to make in order to be in the right path. Depending on what you choose, you either get a good ending or a bad ending so your choices in the game do matter! Okita has FOUR endings to boot! >_< But since we're here to complete his CG Media Gallery, I'll indicate when to save and/or load so we can get all of 'em.

I have to warn you that this post is going to be very long. Also, I won't be providing screenshots since I'd like to keep this guide as spoiler-free as much as I can for the sake of one friend IRL. I also included the prompts to the choices so that you won't be lost in following the story line. It's important to follow them since there's a possibility that you might get branched off to a different character. So, here goes!



Chapter 1

I had no idea what to do next.
Find a way to escape. 
Attempt to explain my situation.

I...
Stayed where I was. 
Ran for it. 

I wasn't sure what to do...
Stay put.
Talk to someone. 
Search the compound.

What was I to do?
Leave and search for my father. 
Remain in the compound.

I have to choose...
Look for Okita. 
Look for Heisuke.

I...
...decided to distract the ronin.  (Romance up!)
...looked around the room.


"I..."
                ...want to come.
                ...will stay behind.

"I'll go see how they're doing."
                Go to the inner courtyard.
                Go to the common room.

Chapter 2

The question remained, then, what should I do?
                Investigate.
                Return to my room.

"I should go to the Maekawa house, or the places in the Yagi house that I haven't been to before."
                Investigate the Yagi house.
                Investigate the Maekawa house.

I couldn't sit by and allow him to do this.
                Persuade him.
                Scream. (Romance up!)

"I..."
                Want to remain here.
                Will return to headquarters.

"Right... Yamazaki said that I should go find Okita or Heisuke."
                Okita
                Heisuke

I could just see Okita and Doctor Matsumoto outside, walking off somewhere together.
Where could they be going, I wondered.
                I'm worried about Okita.
                It's not any of my business.

Should I try and catch up? Or should I go around the back and try to reach the courtyard before they did?
                Catch up. (Romance up!)
                Go around.

There was a lot on my mind, but what worried me the most was...
                The notice board.
                The furies.

Chapter 3

I was especially worried about...
                The Guard.
                The soldiers.

I decided to ask...
                Someone high-ranking.
                Someone neutral.
                Someone close to the people who were leaving.

Her question had been entirely innocent, although it had caught me off-guard. I couldn't possibly lie to her...
                Yes.
                No.

I was the reason they'd come here!
How could I justify sitting on my hands while others fought my battles for me? I didn't know what to do...
                Go outside.
                Stay in my room.

The ring of men around him began to draw in.
I could feel the tension build, like a rope being pulled taut. Soon, it would reach its breaking point.
What was I going to do?
                Try to attack.
                Try to escape.
                Trust the Shinsengumi.

"I..."
                Still wanted to help.
                Decided to stay home.

What, then, was I to do?
                Check on Okita.
                Go find Saito.

Apparently some part of me knew, because I heard myself murmur...
                "No." (Romance up!)
                "Why?"

"Um..."
                I want to help.
                I'll stay here.

Chapter 4

Souji Okita: "So long as the result's the same, what's it matter if I get there a little differently?"
                I want you to do the right thing. (Romance up!)
                This isn't what Kondou would want!

~~~~~
At this point of the game, you're on the correct path on ending the game with Okita's route. I am advising you to have a separate save file as Chapter 5 is going to be a very critical point to get the endings. As I said, there are 4 endings to Okita's route: 2 good endings and 2 bad endings.  

The ending scenes of the good endings are pretty much the same, however, the level of corruption (Okita's status) is different. I'm going to start with one bad ending first, then move on to thegood ending with a high level corruption, another bad ending, then to the good ending with the lowest corruption level. Basically, odd-numbered chapters are going to be the bad endings, while the even-numbered chapters are good endings. This way, we can see as little spoilers as possible.

The different endings have been divided by sections so right when you finish one ending section of this guide, load the save file from here and proceed to the next ending section. Remember, our goal here is to complete Okita's CG Gallery so whatever you do, don't touch/overwrite this save file!

Okita-kun~♥

Well, that's that. Enjoy the ending as the credits roll and congrats for finishing this route while completing Okita's Media Gallery. This is the only route I've finished so far, but I will make the others' character route guides as soon as I can. Hijikata, you're next!

  1. Thank you so much for the guide! :))
    May I ask where you bought the game? (*U*)
    I am dying to find stores that had the game...since I really wanted to play Okita's route badly. (seriously they shouldn't have let him die in the anime...)

    1. No problem, it's my pleasure. :)

      To be honest, I only got my .iso copy of the game from a friend although I am planning to buy game one of these days. So far, I haven't found any luck on local gaming stores. ;_; I'll buy from Amazon as a last resort though, and I do hope they still have the limited edition since it has the OST and the artbook! :D

      It's nice to know another Okita fan like me, hehe. And yes, I do agree that he shouldn't have died in the anime that way but I guess it really can't be helped since the real Okita Souji did die of tuberculosis. ~_~

  2. Sorry but.. for

    I...
    Stayed where I was.
    Ran for it. ♥

    This would go towards Hijikata's route. It's suppose to be 'Stayed where I was.' It wouldn't make much of a difference though, I'm just throw this out.

      I was kinda speed running it to get to Chapter 5 so I didn't see that coming as I was following a Japanese guide after some failed attempts at getting Okita's blood CG. Thanks for pointing it out! :)

  3. Hello, thank you for the great tutorial, like you once Okito flashed his cocky smile I was hooked lol. But I'm actually missing a picture from is gallary its the third one down on the left side. Now either I messed up, or do I unlock it while doing someone else's route?

    1. Hello! I'm glad you liked the guide I made, you're welcome. ^_^

      If you meant the picture with Okita (in fury mode) clutching the protagonist aka you, that's easy to get. You can get the picture right when these choices pop up during Chapter 5:

      What was I going to do?
      Give him blood.
      Give him medicine.
      Make him endure it.

      It's the first set of choices right after the scene with Sen and Okita. Make sure to choose "MAKE HIM ENDURE IT" and you'll be able to get the picture from his gallery. That's it. Hope this helps ^_^

      edited the guide to include this since i seem to have forgotten to include this tiny detail^^

      Delete
    2. Oh thank you so much, I'll make sure to do that!

      Delete
    3. I'm actually still missing that CG with the "Make him endure it" choice. Is this supposed to be the first choice set in Chapter 5? When she first discovers that he's been going through white-haired blood lust for a while and is alarmed? Or is it at a different time?

      Delete
    4. I'm not really sure which CG you mean. But if you mean the same CG as Negalistic, then yes, it's the first choice in Chapter 5. ^_^

      Delete
  4. Thank you for your guide! I got all the CGs now.
    I did not unlock the "MC on top of Okita" CG when i first finished his route. And I nearly missed half of my life. XD
    Thanks for saving me. Your guide is really helpful. :D

    I just can't get enough of Okita. <3

      it's a good thing that you were finally able to see that precious CG. i nearly died of happiness myself when i saw that one. XD

      let's just hope the rest of the hakuoki otome games also get to have US versions so we can have more of Okita. ~(^o^)~

  5. HI! I hope you answer me :S
    I have a cuestion, Yukimura, taking okita's route, becomes a fury no matter what opition i choose?(if i should give him blood, the medicine, or make him endure it) i chose to give him medicine(first) and i wanted to know that, if she becomes a fury, either of the three options to choose?
    Thank you, and i will be so happy if you respond.!

    1. ****************************************************************SPOILERS (FOR PEOPLE WHO DO NOT WISH TO BE SPOILED, PLEASE LOOK AWAY)***********************************************************

      hello :)

      yes, yukimura (the female main character) becomes a fury no matter which option is chosen :) she's actually a pure-blooded demon which is "ranked" higher than a fury.

      the term "fury" (rasetsu) was only given to the vampire-like creatures that took the medicine. dying soldiers, failing body conditions like Okita, or simply those who took it will somewhat raise their abilities and gain super-human strength, but with side-effects.

      in yukimura's case in Okita's route, her pure demon blood became corrupted/tainted because Kaoru forced her to drink the medicine thus making her a fury. :)

      ***************************************************************************************SPOILER END ****************************************************************

      i'll try to check back on this later on since it's been awhile that i've played the game, and Okita was the first character route i played through. i might have forgotten and/or got my memories jumbled up with the rest of the character routes so
      i could be wrong. but if my memory serves me right, this is what i recall.

      i'll try to check on my psp later and give you an update if ever my facts aren't right :)

      Delete
    2. :D Okay!! thank you, i just wanted to know if she transform into a fury because i made one way that kaoru forced her to drink it. But I already saw the end and, T-T i cried haha, a beautiful ending i can't get o ut of my mind haha,
      Thanks for checking :D!!!!

  6. Hi. ;A;

    I followed your steps for Chapter 5-4, and i tried every route too but i didn't get the good ending at all. ;AAAAAA; Ended with either me or Okita dying orz orz orz

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. really? D:

      i just played this game again today just to make sure that i really get the good ending by following the 5-4 steps. not surprisingly, i got the good ending :O

      i'm guessing you accidentally chose another options as an answer to one of the prompts. are you positive that you chose to give Okita some blood ever since he started having seizures? you must always choose to "Give him blood" except at Chapter 7 where the heroine "Will endure it" to get the good and true ending. (you can also take an alternative good ending route with the 5-2 steps)

      if you get the ending where Okita and the girl are laying on the grass under the sun, then you already finished the game with Okita's good ending. as sad as it may seem, his ending is really bittersweet and i think that the game developers made it that way because the real Okita Souji died young because of his sickness. different versions of Okita in different shows always depict him with dying young so i guess that this is somewhat of a tribute to him. :/

      Delete
  7. Gyaahhh so funny how I ended up playing his route...I played his first, by accident. I decided to run away, and that got the whole love-CG to show up and I was like... Great. Okita was NOT my favorite at all before this game. Since I got a love point with him though, I went through with the route and...

    I loved it. <3 There was so much more to him, I feel, than the anime showed (obviously), and somehow this time around, all the "I'll kill you"'s and pervy jokes or suggestions weren't as annoying to me as they were when I first saw the anime. Hehe. Okita was my best friend's favorite, oops, and now he's my...4th favorite. Better than being a no-favorite...

    Oh! And Yamazaki's my absolute favorite, so I especially love this route for all the moments he pops up - especially the fact that you don't hear anything about him dying, but you actually get to see him before he presumably ;__; dies. But still, yeah, a lot of Yamazaki moments which made me happy <3 And the feuds between him and Okita were... strangely adorable. XD

    Anyhow. ****THANK YOU so much for this guide especially!**** Since he was my first route, I really had no idea what the blood, medicine, and endurance options were doing to my outcome. I ended up killing him twice via Kaoru, and then the third time he went mad and killed me. [oddly enough something similar happened with Sen in the Toudou route] =__=;;; Then I found your guide and luckily had a save file before I started messing with the blood and stuff, and made sure I got my happy ending! I was so sick of crying at that point... ;__; His sad ending... TT___TT

    So yes, thanks for helping me get the nice happy ending with my new favorite~ ^^ This guide in particular sooo helped me out, and after that I kind of got the hang of things. Stay away from blood a lot, it seems, to get a really good ending... I usually start with two medicines... Anyhow! Thank you again! >w<

    1. Okita feels and seems horrid as a character in the anime, i agree on that. but halfway through, i knew that there was something behind his threats and his teasing smile. it's just too bad that the anime wasn't able to portray how deep his character is.

      you're welcome, i'm glad you were able to enjoy the game as much as i did. getting Okita's good ending was tricky and i had anticipated that a lot of gamers/fangirls like me would also get stuck somehow and sometime in the game. XD

      for the second picture on the last row, follow the Chapter 5-3 choices. just keep giving Okita blood and you'll get it. hope this helps! ^^

  17. Thank you for this!
    Before playing Souji's route I was more or less neutral towards him, but now he's another favourite too. Just my own opinion, I found Souji to be quite sweet later in his route, second favourite in terms of romance w/ Chizuru. Although the bad end is really sad kms, I really like how it showed his strong feelings towards Chizuru imo. idk for some reason I wasn't expecting to feel the romance in his route but I really enjoyed the romance (only behind Sano's route for me) so it was a pleasant surprise.

    Replies
    1. Souji's character type is usually like that; he's somewhat of a tsundere so you can really expect him to be sweet and loving despite being mean and playful. he has always been my favorite while Harada comes in second. :)

  18. Hii! :D Thanks for the guide~ ^^
    I have a question though. I read the comments and.. what do you mean by bittersweet? ~_~ I mean, did okita still died even in the good ending? :/
    That's what i first thought but there's a part where he softly laughed while sleeping right?

    Replies
    1. Okita managed to survive the corruption of his fury and he was able to somewhat cleanse his illness with the spring water from where they spent their last days together. In exchange, they can no longer leave the forgotten village since Okita needs to be near the water from the village.

      From Chizuru's last words, there was still no guarantee whether he was going to live a long life or if he's just going to drop dead. remember, the fury made him super-human at the price of shortening his lifespan. so, shortened lifespan + tuberculosis = uncertainties. Chizuru is a bit anxious whether or not Okita is still going to wake up from their quiet afternoon naps (at least that's what i recall), thus it's bittersweet. hope that answers your question :)

    1. are you perhaps referring to the one with the sakura petals? if so, you get it automatically when you finish a character's story line :)

  25. May I ask if you played this using PSP or emulator? I really want to play this game so badly, but my PSP won't play this game.. At first, the game can't be played, so I decrypt it using ISO tool, then when I try again, the game can play! (Yaaay~), I was so happy to see the intro only to find... the title screen and all after that are messed up... TT_TT

    Do you maybe have any idea..? Sorry if this is kinda out of topic, and thanks in advance! :)

    1. nope, I played this on my PSP. unfortunately, I wasn't able to find any copy sold in my area so I had to resort to playing with an ISO file. you can find some ISO copies around that should work fine :)

    2. I can play this game already!! \^_^/
      Thanks for replying me! Apparently, my PSP sytem is a bit outdated, so I need to upgrade it, after upgrade, the game works fine! ^_^ (Though all of my save data are corrupted.. T_T)

      Well, at least I can play the game now! Same as you, I've also liked Okita-san since I watched the anime! (Gotta admit that some parts of my initial attract for him is due to my favorite character in Gintama, Okita Sougo, who's also based from Okita Souji), but now I can say for certain that I like him without any correlation to Sougo! ^_^
      I also like Harada-san second to Okita-san here! Both of them love so hard, just with a different way.. :)

      Sorry for blabbering out though, but thanks a lot for replying! ^_^

    How can I get them?

    1. I believe that's Okita's bad end pic (?) the one where he dies in Chizu's hand

  27. Hi there, first off, thank you for these awesome guides, wish I had the patience to just play the game lol, but anyways, my question is how do I get the the CG that in the menu is supposed to be at the top of the menu between the CG you get after you easedrop on him and the doctor and the one you get when he becomes a fury. I'm not sure where I went wrong or even how far back I would have to go to get it. Hope you or someone can help me out, not really interested in searching elsewhere just for one CG you know?

    1. nevermind, i got it by accident while doing Kazama's route. In Ch.3, instead of choosing Try to Attack, you should've put Try to Escape, cause that's how I got it. It's sooo adorable and am very glad I was able to get it, even though I hadn't expected it!
