Episode 9

Tenka's execution was supposed to be the end of everything, but that's not the case as he was not the vessel after all. There's some greater conspiracy going on considering that Kagami and other prisoners are escaping from that lake prison. Chutaro is siding with Kagami to seek revenge, while Shirasu is up to something stabbing Botan like that. The focus shifts to finding a way to seal the Orochi, but those swords need to be found. There's an awful lot of backstabbing going on here considering that Tenka's execution ended up doing nothing.

Episode 9


Welp, this episode reminds me a little of Psycho Pass 2's latest episode regarding the ending. I guess when you find out too much about something, there's a death flag that appears.

Still, the two big twists revealed is that Shirasu's betrayal and his intention to bring Orochi back to the present time. And...we also find out that Sora is the new vessel of Orichi.

Also, what the hell is that Chutaro think he is doing? Even if he carries out his little revenge, his brother isn't coming back. Very interesting episode. Can't wait to see the next one.

just caught up since i now have a funi account it's really interesting series, seems a little different than what i've been watching recently. Totally was not expecting the romance, it was nice, I hate that the chick got stabbed cuz she hasn't met blondie yet well she is a familiar so technically she can't die...? idk.

i was hoping older brother's death had some meaning. well first i thought he was gonna die a lot sooner than he did (death flags everywhere), but when he does, it doesn't matter? aggh. And now middle bro off killing people? and poor lil guy ...

this series is pretty good... but i hate that white haired ninja dude is betraying them why oh why

Episode 10

And then in a big way, shit got real. Shirasu had this all planned out, letting everybody to believe that the Fuma are no more, having wardens stationed there to release all the prisoners to keep the Yamainu occupied, and then getting close to Sora, all for the Fuma's mission to see the Orochi awakened. The father was catching onto their plans, so that's why he was killed, and it was Shirasu that killed him, not the brother in the fox mask, and he knew all this time that it was Sora who was the vessel. But there are some great developments here as Hirari has returned, Chutaro is dropping his act of revenge, and the biggest surprise of all, Tenka faked his death as he is still alive. That's an awful lot of buildup there, but now Sora is not looking too well with Orochi's revival imminent.

Looks like they are setting up everything for a big climatic battle (probably against the Orichi and those twins). And welp, check out who is back this episode:



Also I'm glad to see Hirai and Bonta reunite again.

I had no idea that this anime would be one of my tops of the season. It has been an emotional roller coaster and I'm loving every minute of it. Can't believe Tenny is coming back!

Episode 11

So that's what happened, and Tenka was kept alive as a test subject for some sort of medicine from the Orochi, and that he would have otherwise died that day when his parents were killed. The plan of attack is to expose Sora to the sun as that's its weakness, and to do that it's up to Chutaro with those sacred swords to lead him there. And Nishiki has chosen to side with Sora rather than Orochi, so Botan's judgment was right when she gave those swords to Nishiki. All this to set the stage for the final episode with Orochi in the sun, while the Yamainu are facing off against the Fuma. Pretty nice way to bring Tenka back into the fold.

This is an underated anime. Why IDK? No fanservice harems ? This is about honor, betrayal and very good fight scenes. Just the right touch of humor and sadness. And the love of three brothers! Very well written and the animation is very nice.

This anime is probably one of my favorites this season. I can't believe that barely anyone is watching it. When it ends, I'm going to be sad. Also, I teared up at the end when Tenka showed up.

Episode 12 (Finale)

With the help of his brothers, the Orochi is out of Sora, and a coordinated strike with the sacred weapons by Sora, Chutaro, and Takeda take down the Orochi once and for all. The villagers and even Kagami lend a hand against the Fuma and with the Orochi dead, so is Shirasu after a self-induced fall off the cliff. That was some nice action there to end this show. I was hoping that someone would stop Shirasu from falling considering that Sora misses him even though what he did is unforgivable, but didn't want to live with the Orochi gone. Anyway, that's a nice wrap to this show.

Final Thoughts

This show has a nice and intriguing story with lots of twists and turns that made it entertaining. The show got off to a rough start as it didn't exactly have me believing that it would turn out to be the show it ended up being, and it gave me the impression that it's only going to be about catching criminals and throwing them in the lake prison. But once the whole story about the Orochi came into the picture, that's when it got me liking this show. That said, execution was uneven, but in the grand scheme of things it puts together a really solid story with a good amount of intrigue and character development.

Grade: B- (7/10)

Episode 11 & 12/Finale


Good series overall with a proper conclusion. Felt a bit predictable though imo with the final boss fight. Still, I'm glad everyone is back.

Also, Botan and Hirari are together now and it seems like she isn't going anywhere either despite the fact that the Orichi is defeated. Rating this 7/10 as well. There's also the prequel manga if anyone is interested~
