“This sounds so much like click bait.” (Or, “You Can Watch Hakuouki: SSL Legally, Online, and for Free”)

Disclaimer: I’m all about supporting the official release where applicable, but there ARE occasions when to do so as a western viewer is ACTUALLY impossible…


To my knowledge at the time of my initial viewership, there was nowhere one could legally watch what I’m about to share with you; if I knew that there was, I would’ve been the first in line to support this particular franchise. In fact, I would even now buy a DVD with English subs outright even if it was particularly expensive, because I love the series that much, but…

That isn’t an option for western, English-speaking audiences.

I went around and around and AROUND about whether or not to make a post on the subject of my attention and link to the content, because the very absolute LAST thing I wanted to do is draw actionable attention to the object of my viewership and risk it being flagged (thus, taken down). Then no one would have recourse! However, I know that many people would—like I so very much did—enjoy watching the media and currently have no knowledge of how to do so. I did not for such a long time, and I understand that frustration…

But then I found what I truly believe is a legal stream of the necessary videos, and thus I don’t have to disclose my initial illegal source, people can legally watch the live action Hakuouki: Sweet School Life, and everyone wins.

Yes, you got that right.

It’s time for some “Hakuouki: SSL!!!”

I myself am incredibly excited to have found a legal option and can’t wait to see what other JDrama offerings they have!

  1. I have never seen a j-drama but maybe I should after reading how enthusiastically you write this. I was recommended this site for k-drama by an avid watcher of said genre and he is a very law abiding citizen so it’s safe to say it’s legal.

    1. Example: Black Butler ~Book of Atlantic~ is a movie that I would buy without hesitation after the dub is released, but how many years have we been waiting now? I know that Funi is probably trying, but… we know the dub is finished, so… maybe they’re getting the run around? I dunno when it comes to these things.

      1. There have been times when funimation dubbed something, then the program l original creator didn’t like it, so they had to go it again. That made the disc release very late…

    1. Hi, Nick. I’ll direct you if I can; what movie are you talking about? I only know of “Wild Dance of Kyoto” and “Warrior Spirit of the Blue Sky.”
