[3rd Year] Shinsengumi

*History: Shinsengumi is a group of swordmen in 18th century Japan. They were the special police force for the city of Kyoto during the late Tokugawa Shogunate Period. They went against the idea of Japan opening up to accept Western culture (also known as Meiji Restoration). Shinsengumi is a very popular theme for novel, art, drama as well as animation in Japan mainly because each member has very unique characteristics. I really like them too :)

These are just really rough chicken scratches to wrap up the main ideas for each character. I'm gonna go further with these guys when summer break starts and come up with revised characters and a story that explains their personalities, relationships and history.
