Harukanaru Toki no Naka de

After covering the guys of such games/animes like La Corda d'Oro and Neo Angelique, it makes sense to cover the other major franchise of otome games from Koei, Harukanaru Toki no Naka de (aka Haruka: Beyond The Streams of Time). 

Haruka's storyline is somewhat reminiscent of Fushigi Yugi as it features a modern girl who gets drawn into a world that resembles Heian period Japan.  The girl is hailed as a priestess and, as a result, is surrounded by a group of hot guys who protect her.

The original game spawned a franchise that also includes manga, anime, drama CDs, and a movie in addition to several sequels.  The art in today's post comes from a combination of these sources.

The anime TV series was released in America by Bandai Visual USA, which was folded into Bandai Entertainment.  Viz Media is currently releasing the manga.
