Pretty boring series although I do enjoy watching the bro-like interactions between Shino and Sousuke. Well, regarding the finale, the series seemingly ended with some of a definite finish I guess?

Seems like I can barely follow the plot or rather most of the time, it just seems too loose. 4/10.

I agree. I might give it 5/10 as a nod to the pretty-boys factor, but although there was a plot, it was kind of hard to hold onto and though it struck me that things could have been interesting, I was in fact, struggling to stay at all interested. It would catch me for a little bit, and then it wandered off or my mind did and....

I've not seen the finale--waiting for it to show on CR, and I'll watch it because I've bothered to spend 25 minutes or so every week on it, so I may as well spend another few minutes. If it were a longer series I probably would have dropped it by now.

Well a second season was indeed confirmed
http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2013/03/29/hakkenden-eight-dogs-of-the-east-anime-second-season-announced

Summer 2013.

So my guess this anime is popular over ther that it has confirmed second season .

Although I have not read the magazine ,
My take on this anime is that the director ( same director for Durarara) took the longer way and introduced all the characters and did not develop the main plot of Shino immediately . I can see how it can be boring becuase of that way. And there a lot of things with holes..so to speak. There is a lot of darkness in this anime inspite of the package.

But my curiosity of the characters kept me in the show and their character design are very pleasing to my eyes and their interactions are actually amusing to me.

And finally the main plot is unfolding but they introduced more characters which will complicate things again...oh well.

One thing I find funny is that the church has demons or something dark in it. Its almost like another anime years back ,07 Ghost . The anime has a similar feel with lots of question but the manga is better.

I know CR is a week behind .Got to do what you got to do

So, I finished up with the last episode a little late, and while they "solved" problem of there clearly not being enough time to wrap things up in any satisfactory way by indicating a second season for Summer, I can't say I was enjoying this enough to pick up the second season when it does come around, though momentum probably would have kept me watching an additional cour were there no gap between 1 and 2.

On the other hand, if Summer 2013 is as generally lackluster as Winter 2013, I guess there's a chance.

I am glad there is a second season.

Indeed this title is really is taking its time in revealing a lot of things about Shino and his past and his relationship with Satomi, as well as introducing all the Inu or the bearer of the stones. So far we have 7 that means 1 more will be revealed.

I do love all the relationship that are getting developed in this anime.

Looking forward for the next episode.

ps..I was the only one who cosplayed for this anime at AX .

Yeah, the show is pretty good, I like the traditional Japanese storytelling vibe that I get from this anime. The artwork is also praiseworthy, and the characters are interesting.

The recent episode made me a little more curious about shadow Sosuke, especially when that blind girl mentioned his hands being warm unlike, regular Sosuke's hands. I also want to learn more about Shino and Sosuke's relationship in the past.

Everyone who didn't like the first season should watch the second... :P

I love the relationships and the mystery... the comedy and the strange moments...

Shino and Satomi are my favorites together and Genpachi and Konbungo are great brothers XD
