Recurring themes Edit

"Yaisa! Yaisa! Yaisa!" Edit

"Yaisa! Yaisa! Yaisa!" has been included in every musical to date. With the exception of HakuMyu Reimeiroku and Hijikata-hen 2, it is always one of the first few numbers, introducing the characters to the audience. It is usually also quoted as part of the final number as a way of symbolizing the Shinsengumi's influence on the main protagonist, as well as showing concurrent battles among the rest of the cast.

The verses and order thereof differ depending on the protagonist of the musical and the rest of the cast available. A shortened version, usually containing only the chorus/ending and sometimes the protagonist's verse, is also used as the curtain call theme.

Some lyrics are taken directly from the medieval Japanese literary work Heike Monogatari.

In addition to each iteration of the song itself, parts of the themes are included in:

  • "Bushi Toshite Ikiru Tame ni" (Saito-hen)
  • "Kanaetai Yume ga Arukara, Part 1" (Okita-hen)
  • "Mamoritaimono" (Hijikata-hen)
  • "The Final Battle Medley" (LIVE)
  • "Orokamono Domo Yo" (Kazama-hen)
  • "Ore-tachi no Nakama" (Toudou-hen)

Parts of "Yaisa! Yaisa! Yaisa!" are included instrumentally in Hijikata-hen's "Itsuka Makoto ni", Kazama-hen's "Inishie no Oni", and Kazama-hen's "Hokori Takaki Oni ~ Ketsui" and "Orokamono Domo Yo", the last of which specifically references the beginning of its respective musical's version of "Yaisa! Yaisa! Yaisa!".

"Atsuku Ikiro" from HakuMyu Reimeiroku bears some thematic similarities to the overall piece. The exclamation "Yaisa!" also comprises some lyrics in "Asonde Bakka Jyanai Ze!" and "KINNIKU LOVE", but their melodies are different.

"Yoiyami no Machi" Edit

Chizuru's verse appears as a separate song in Hijikata-hen, called "Yoiyami no Machi", but is integrated with the rest of "Yaisa! Yaisa! Yaisa!" in every other musical in which Chizuru appears. This specific theme is also included in:

  • "Bushi Toshite Ikiru Tame ni" (Saito-hen)
  • "Boku ga Koroshite Ageru" (Okita-hen)
  • "Kanaetai Yume ga Arukara, Part 1" (Okita-hen)
  • "The Final Battle Medley" (LIVE)

Part of "Yoiyami no Machi" is included instrumentally in Hijikata-hen's "Ore-tachi wo Shinjiro".

"Daīchimaku ~ OPENING" Edit

Although the original (from Saito-hen) is instrumental, this is a common theme throughout the musicals. It is played prior to the curtain rising as well as during the beginning of the second act as "Dainimaku ~ OPENING", often integrated with a prominent character's personal theme. It is also quoted musically in:

  • "Bushi no Jidai" (Saito-hen)
  • "Bushi Toshite Ikiru Tame ni" (Saito-hen)
  • "Ashita ni Mukau Fune" (Hijikata-hen, Hijikata-hen 2)
  • "Mamoritaimono" (Hijikata-hen)
  • "Kazama Medley" (LIVE)
  • "The Final Battle Medley" (LIVE)

Parts of "Daīchimaku ~ OPENING" are included instrumentally in Okita-hen's "Yakusoku" and "Kanaetai Yume ga Arukara, Part 2" and Hijikata-hen's "Makoto no Hata" and "Ashita ni Mukau Fune".

Additionally, the percussion that begins "Dainimaku ~ OPENING" also begins "Makoto no Hata".

"Yoiyami Aketara Asobimasho" Edit

This leitmotif has two forms with connections to different characters depending on the key used. Its major-key form is "Yoiyami Aketara Asobimasho", included on its own in Saito-hen, Okita-hen, and LIVE, and it is associated with Chizuru. It is usually a solo, but in Okita-hen, Kaoru makes it a duet.

It is also included in:

  • "Boku ga Koroshite Ageru" (Okita-hen)
  • "Kanaetai Yume ga Arukara" (Okita-hen)
  • "Mishiranu Senaka" (Hijikata-hen, Hijikata-hen 2)

Parts of "Yoiyami Aketara Asobimasho" are included instrumentally in Okita-hen's "Yakusoku", Hijikata-hen's "Kieyuku Sadame", and Kazama-hen's "Mayoigo no Kōro".

Kazama's darker verse within HakuMyu LIVE's iteration of "Yoiyami Aketara Asobimasho" may come from a sketch in Saito-hen in which he walks onstage singing an off-key rendition of Chizuru's song.

"Oni no Matsuei" Edit

The minor-key form of the same theme is the chorus of "Oni no Matsuei", which is included in Saito-hen, Okita-hen, and LIVE. This song is associated with the Demon Clan and, as such, contains original themes for Kazama, Shiranui, and (except for the LIVE version) Amagiri. The main theme's derivatives are:

  • "Bushi Toshite Ikiru Tame ni" (Saito-hen)
  • "Kanaetai Yume ga Arukara, Part 1" (Okita-hen)
  • "Hokori Takaki Oni" (Hijikata-hen)
  • "Itsuka Makoto ni" (Hijikata-hen)
  • "The Final Battle Medley" (LIVE)

Parts of the main theme of "Oni no Matsuei" are included instrumentally in Okita-hen's "Yakusoku" and Hijikata-hen's "Mamoritaimono"; Kazama's verse within "Oni no Matsuei" is referenced at the beginning of Kazama-hen's "Yaisa! Yaisa! Yaisa!"; and Shiranui's verse is quoted instrumentally in Kazama-hen's "Never Say Goodbye, Forever". The first part of Amagiri's verse is taken from the demons' verse in "Yaisa! Yaisa! Yaisa!", and the latter part later influences the same number as it is sung in LIVE and Toudou-hen. It is also quoted in Okita-hen's "Ketsui no Wakare" and Hijikata-hen's "Ashita ni Mukau Fune".

All three verses and the main chorus are referenced to varying degrees in Hijikata-hen's "Hokori Takaki Oni" as instrumentals.

"Makoto no Hata" Edit

One of Hijikata Toshizo's character themes, which references "Dainimaku ~ OPENING". In HakuMyu LIVE, it has been integrated into the "Opening Medley". It is also quoted in:

  • "Ashita ni Mukau Fune" (Hijikata-hen)
  • "Ano Hi no Chikai" (Hijikata-hen)
  • "Ore Dake no Yume" (Hijikata-hen)
  • "Mamoritaimono" (Hijikata-hen)

Parts of "Makoto no Hata" are included instrumentally in Hijikata-hen's "Kieyuku Sadame" and Kazama-hen's "Orokamono Domo Yo".

"Itsuka Makoto ni" Edit

Though this song references "Hokori Takaki Oni" and "PAINT IT BLOOD", this song also introduces one of Hijikata Toshizo's character themes as well as the main theme of the Shinsengumi itself, after which the song is named.

  • "Ore Dake no Yume" (Hijikata-hen)
  • "Shinsengumi Medley" (LIVE)
  • "Orokamono Domo Yo" (Kazama-hen)
  • "Mayoigo no Kōro" (Kazama-hen)
  • "Oni-tachi no Kyōji" (Kazama-hen)

In Hijikata-hen, several of its instrumental themes and rhythms are quoted in "Ashita ni Mukau Fune", which takes place on the other side of the intermission.

"Hokori Takaki Oni" Edit

One of Kazama Chikage's character themes. It is included as a song by itself in Hijikata-hen and Hijikata-hen 2, but is also referenced in:

  • "Itsuka Makoto ni" (Hijikata-hen)
  • "Ashita ni Mukau Fune" (Hijikata-hen)
  • "Kazama Medley" (LIVE)

Parts of "Hokori Takaki Oni" are referenced instrumentally in Hijikata-hen's "Mamoritaimono", LIVE's "The Final Battle Medley", and Kazama-hen's "Mayoigo no Kōro". Additionally, in Kazama-hen's iteration of "Hokori Takaki Oni", all three demons' themes from "Oni no Chikara" are included as instrumentals, and a new melody is sung by Chizuru, "Ketsui".

"PAINT IT BLOOD" Edit

One of Okita Souji's character themes. It has been combined with his other main leitmotifs to create "Sadame ~ Shinsengumi no Ken ~ PAINT IT BLOOD" in Hijikata-hen and Hijikata-hen 2. It has also been integrated into the "Opening Medley" in LIVE. Other songs that include parts of it are:

  • "Yakusoku" (Okita-hen)
  • "Boku ga Koroshite Ageru" (Okita-hen)
  • "Kanaetai Yume ga Arukara" (Okita-hen)
  • "Yume no Hate" (Kazama-hen)

Parts of "PAINT IT BLOOD" are also included instrumentally in Okita-hen's "Ano Hi no Chikai" (in place of a verse), Hijikata-hen's "Itsuka Makoto ni", Kazama-hen's "Mayoigo no Kōro" and "Never Say Goodbye, Forever", and Toudou-hen's "Yaisa! Yaisa! Yaisa!".

"Kawaranaimono" Edit

One of Saito Hajime's character themes, sung either as a solo or a duet. In Hijikata-hen, it has been combined with his other main leitmotif to create "Kawaranaimono ~ Ryūgi" in Hijikata-hen. Other songs that include parts of it are:

  • "Shinnen" (Saito-hen)
  • "LOVE Medley" (LIVE)
  • "Yume no Hate" (Kazama-hen)

Parts of "Kawaranaimono" are also included instrumentally in Saito-hen's "Bushi Toshite Ikiru Tame ni" and LIVE's "The Final Battle Medley".

"Hisuru Hana" Edit

One of Kazama Chikage's character themes, first included as a song unto itself but also included in:

  • "Orokamono Domo Yo" (Kazama-hen)
  • "Mayoigo no Kōro" (Kazama-hen)

Parts of "Hisuru Hana" are also included instrumentally in Kazama-hen's "Inishie no Oni", "Hokori Takaki Oni ~ Ketsui", and "Never Say Goodbye, Forever".

"Horobi no Sakebi" Edit

One of Yukimura Chizuru's character themes, shared with Yukimura Kodo. It is exclusive to Kazama-hen, and is first introduced as its own song, but is also musically referenced in:

  • "Orokamono Domo Yo" (Kazama-hen)
  • "Sendai-jou no Tatakai" (Kazama-hen)

Parts of "Horobi no Sakebi" are also included instrumentally in Kazama-hen's "Hokori Takaki Oni ~ Ketsui".

"Aware na Mouja" Edit

One of Sanan Keisuke's character themes, most particularly associated with his loss of humanity. It is included as its own song in Hijikata-hen, LIVE, and Hijikata-hen 2, and is also referenced in:

  • "Kieyuku Sadame" (Hijikata-hen)
  • "Inishie no Oni" (Kazama-hen)

Parts of "Aware na Mouja" are also included instrumentally in Kazama-hen's "Sendai-jou no Tatakai" and in Toudou-hen's "Dainimaku ~ OPENING". In the latter production, most of Sanan's sung themes also have a similar style.

"Kanashimi no Ketsudan" Edit

Although the original (from Okita-hen) is instrumental, this theme recurs often throughout the musicals. It is primarily related to Kondou Isami's execution, although it is secondarily associated with partings in general. The latter part of the theme is taken from part of "Ano Hi no Chikai". The main melody is used in:

  • "Ketsui no Wakare" (Okita-hen)
  • "Shinsengumi Medley" (LIVE)
  • "Never Say Goodbye, Forever" (Kazama-hen)

"Oni no Chikara" Edit

The equivalent number of "Oni no Matsuei", first introduced in Kazama-hen. The song contains a verse apiece for Kazama, Amagiri, and Shiranui, which become their new themes. Shiranui's verse is quoted in "Never Say Goodbye, Forever", in which it becomes a slower duet between him and Harada. The two of them also sing different words to the original theme in Toudou-hen's "Sorezore no Michi de".

All three verses are referenced instrumentally in Kazama-hen's "Hokori Takaki Oni ~ Ketsui", and Amagiri's verse is included as an instrumental in Kazama-hen's "Mayoigo no Kōro".

"BEAUTIFUL DRUNKARDS" Edit

This leitmotif is associated with the bonds of friendship that tie the Shinsengumi together, most particularly Toudou Heisuke, Harada Sanosuke, and Nagakura Shinpachi. It is a song unto itself in Hijikata-hen, LIVE, and Kazama-hen, but is integrated with "KINNIKU LOVE" in Toudou-hen to create "KINNIKU DRUNKARDS". The chorus of "BEAUTIFUL DRUNKARDS" is also referenced instrumentally in Kazama-hen's "Never Say Goodbye, Forever", and directly sung with different lyrics in Kazama-hen's "Sendai-jou no Tatakai".

"Ryūgi" Edit

One of Saito Hajime's character themes. Initially a two-part song from Saito-hen, "Ryūgi ~ Don't Forget My Style", the theme of "Ryūgi" has also been added to "Kawaranaimono" in Hijikata-hen and is integrated with the "Opening Medley" in LIVE. It is also quoted musically within Kazama-hen and Toudou-hen's iterations of "Yaisa! Yaisa! Yaisa!", when Saito rescues Chizuru from the furies.

"Wakaki Kōtekishu" from HakuMyu Reimeiroku bears some thematic similarities to "Ryūgi".

"Sadame" Edit

One of Okita Souji's character themes. It has been combined with his other main leitmotifs to create "Sadame ~ Shinsengumi no Ken ~ PAINT IT BLOOD" in Hijikata-hen. It is also referenced instrumentally at the beginning of "Kanaetai Yume ga Arukara, Part 1".

"Shinsengumi no Ken" Edit

One of Okita Souji's character themes. It has been combined with his other main leitmotifs to create "Sadame ~ Shinsengumi no Ken ~ PAINT IT BLOOD" in Hijikata-hen.

"SAMURAI Future" Edit

This song is included by itself in Saito-hen and Kazama-hen. Its main theme is also integrated with "Yaisa! Yaisa! Yaisa!" in Okita-hen and the "Opening Medley" in LIVE.

"Sore ga Shinjiru Michi" Edit

Originally a theme between Saito and Chizuru in Saito-hen, it has since become associated with bloodlust in Hijikata-hen (at the end of "Ano Hi no Chikai") and Toudou-hen (as part of "Issho ni Ite Kure"), although only the original contains lyrics to that tune.

Notes Edit

  • Several themes are built on similar rhythms.
    • Most instrumental battle themes throughout the series have similar beats.
    • In Saito-hen, "Bushi Toshite Ikiru Tame ni" references the rhythm of "Hokori" in the beginning.
  • In addition to those already mentioned, many other songs are combined and integrated with others to form unique medleys.
    • "KINNIKU LOVE" appears on its own in Saito-hen, Okita-hen, and LIVE. Though the "muscle" lyrics are sung in Saito-hen, they are instead given a hip-hop flavor in Okita-hen and LIVE, and are delivered exclusively by Heisuke. In Toudou-hen, the song is given its original tune and is combined with "BEAUTIFUL DRUNKARDS" to form "KINNIKU DRUNKARDS".
      • The similar number found in HakuMyu Shinsengumi Kitan and LIVE 2 is also directly patterned on "KINNIKU LOVE".
    • "Ikiro", originally a song by itself in Saito-hen, is integrated with Kazama-hen's "Yume no Hate", which is also included in Shinsengumi Kitan.
  • HakuMyu LIVE and LIVE 2 also include some medleys as such.
    • LIVE's "Opening Medley" consists of "Makoto no Hata", "Ryūgi", "PAINT IT BLOOD", and "SAMURAI Future".
    • LIVE's "LOVE Medley" consists of "Kawaranaimono", "Bushi no Jidai", "Sadame", "Boku ga Koroshite Ageru", "Ore Dake no Yume", and "Mamoritaimono".
    • LIVE's "Kazama Medley" consists of "Hokori Takaki Oni", "Hokori", his part of "Itsuka Makoto ni", and the final part of "Bushi Toshite Ikiru Tame ni".
    • LIVE's "Shinsengumi Medley" consists of "Ano Hi no Chikai", Hijikata's verse in "Ketsui no Wakare", "Ikiro", and "Itsuka Makoto ni".
    • LIVE's "Final Battle Medley" consists of "Bushi Toshite Ikiru Tame ni", "Kanaetai Yume ga Arukara", and "Mamoritaimono".
  • Several instrumental themes from the earlier musicals bear some similarities to themes introduced later in the series.
    • "Funsen", an instrumental theme from Saito-hen, may be the foundation for Kazama's main leitmotif "Hokori Takaki Oni", first introduced in Hijikata-hen.
    • "Kōsaku Suru Omoi", an instrumental theme from Okita-hen, may have been the melodic source of Kazama's verse in Kazama-hen and Toudou-hen's "Oni no Chikara".
  • Similarly, some instrumental themes are integrated with later songs.
    • "Taiji", an instrumental theme from Okita-hen, is integrated into Toudou-hen's "Yaisa! Yaisa! Yaisa!" during Chizuru's flight from the furies.
  • There are also several themes which are quoted in one or two other numbers, but do not recur consistently enough to include as major leitmotifs.
    • In Okita-hen, "Sorezore no Michi" is quoted musically during Okita's bloodlust at the end of "Tadashī Michi wo".
    • Yamazaki's verse in "Ashita ni Mukau Fune" is played as an instrumental just prior to his death in "Orokamono Domo Yo" in Kazama-hen, and Chizuru's is played as an instrumental during the end of "Kieyuku Sadame" in Hijikata-hen.
    • In Hijikata-hen, "Ore-tachi wo Shinjiro" is later referenced instrumentally in "Ano Hi no Chikai".
    • The main theme of "Ano Hi no Chikai" comprises the melody of Hijikata's first sung lines in Hijikata-hen's "Mamoritaimono".
    • In Kazama-hen, the main melody of "Ketsui" is repeated in "Mayoigo no Kōro".
  • Stylistically, Kazama-hen is heavily influenced by traditional Japanese elements and, to a slightly lesser extent, rock music. Toudou-hen has a distinctly Spanish flavor. Many of Kazama and Heisuke's character themes are also Japanese- and Spanish-influenced, respectively.
  • Though Kaoru does not appear to have a specific sung theme, the arrangement and style is similar throughout his songs. These include "THE BEAST", "Tadashī Michi wo", and "Kanaetai Yume ga Arukara".

Trivia Edit

  • Yukimura Chizuru's actress changes per her leading man, meaning that apart from HakuMyu LIVE and LIVE 2, a different actress is cast as Chizuru in every musical.
  • Kondou Isami is the only character who has always been portrayed by the same actor, Imata Taira.
    • Prior to Hijikata-hen 2, Shiranui Kyo was also played by the same actor, Kashiwagi Yuusuke.
    • Prior to Harada-hen, Kazama Chikage and Yukimura Kodo were always played by Suzuki Shogo and Edogawa Manji, respectively. Edogawa Manji was also the only actor to appear in every single production of HakuMyu before that point, as neither Kazama nor Shiranui made an appearance in HakuMyu Reimeiroku.
  • Sasaki Yoshihide is the only actor to play two different roles in HakuMyu: that of Hijikata Toshizo (in HakuMyu Reimeiroku), and that of Kazama Chikage (in HakuMyu Harada-hen).
