Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun




Five years ago, almost every villager of Ootsuka died due to a tragic plague. But mysteriously enough, three survivors: a girl and two boys, emerged. Now living in a church, the three live in isolation, hidden from those who may seek to find them. Shino, one of the survivors, has control over the power of Murasame, the blade of life. But when the imperial church seeks to take the Murasame for themselves, their peaceful life becomes a thing of the past...

I havn't looked them up but just by ear there are a lot of the Bakuman seiyus in this show. That means good voice acting since I like the delivery they use. Story line seems nicely done too. We'll see how the next few weeks go but so far I'd recommend checking it out.

Episode 1



One of the weaker series imo for the season. This was boring and a bit confusing as well. Seems like this group knows a few things as well as Shino and Sousuke. Otherwise, a bit boring and generic.

It looks like Shino is also a skinwalker. Haven't seen that in recent anime series.

I watched it online so therefore I didn't download it and if you're pointing fingers at me than explain to me how you watched Senran Kagura since it's not legally available to stream and thus you must have downloaded it since you delivered your first impressions on it BDT87


I'm not pointing fingers, Im just saying that I think you downloaded it, why do that when it would be available to crunchyroll users, as in support crunchyroll. And I didn't download Senran I watched it live on Japan TV like some other people do on here. Thank you.

I'm a premium member and therefore I'm already supporting it and I haven't mentioned that I won't be watching it on this site haven't I? So since you gave your first impressions on the show and given the depth you went in with the plot suggests that you understand Japanese then and if not you must have downloaded the fansub. Everyone on this site has watched anime online elsewhere other than crunchyroll given the region restrictions that this site has for its anime list.

Synopsis, and it's not a heavy story than some series to understand, which I can understand japanese without subs. Anyway at least both of us didn't download it illegally that all that matters.

It seem interesting but we dont know much about the past of the 3 main characters and nothing was clear about them except that they were ..and the sword and the church ?

So far the character design is pretty good but not as fancy as Amnesia. I just love Kakihara san and Murasame is Nobuhiko .The two has very similar voices lol.
But I always like these type of anime , humans and demons etc etc .

Well lets see how it goes.

But I agree , it does not give a strong impression at the begining

Lesson to be learned here: Dont assume people download stuff, or that they dont support CR if they do (if they have a subscription then they are supporting the site).

Not sure what to think about this, just read the synopsis and it doesnt really sound too interesting, but I'll watch the ep tomorrow.

Episode 10

From the way this anime is moving it doesnt seem to be a 12 only or 1 season. So it looks like Shino is destined to gather all 8 of them but so far there are only 5 .or..6

There is not much action in this episode but a lot of mystery around what happened 5 years ago and this Shadow who seem to be the half of Souske and the others missing ....has just appeared .

Overall this anime's writting is not strong but its not boring either, nor annoying me .There are lots of characters and thats why it seem slow because they are trying to introduce them one by one and develop them... . The interactions between the characters are actually pleasant and not forced nor annoying.

They are developing the story slowly as they introduce the characters and the "shadow" is the newest character and we are on episode 10 already, almost the end of the season.

The director of this anime is Yamazaki , the same for Durarara.






I wont consider this anime bad,

its just that its not written strong enough with the core plot ,,,becuase there are many subplots written .

Since I like genre with demons and dudes and I am still curious about where the story leads to so I am following this one.


Yeap... this anime story is indeed picking up , the main plot that is.... I hope its not ending at 13 becuase it doesnt seem like the story concludes at 13
.

Episode 12

Shino is just too .... pretty ...cute....

Anyway, its just too bad that a lot lost interest in this anime because this is finally getting to the main story line of Shino . And the mystery that surrounds him becuase of Murasame and Murasame's true form and the mystery of the Shadow , Sosuke's true other 1/2 self. There are so many interesting things happening and I want to know how come this and that.

Indeed there are a lot of of questions or holes in the story , there are too many mystery and and its is coming out vague.
howeve it has a lot of potential as well,,,
.

Episode 13
Season Ends.

The shadow is now more and more within his midst. The main plot is finally unfolding lol... on to the next season
