I wasn't quite sure what to make of this show at first, but I'm really digging the old-school myth telling vibe.

Episode 3

The moment I have been waiting for the return of Benten and she came back just in time to save Yasaburo. Things get interesting when Yasaburo and her mother go visit his grandmother for a potion to help his brother change back. The best part had to be at the end when Yasaburo went to visit the Nidaime in his new home and Benten shows up and lays down on his chaise. He polity lays a sheet down and pushes her off. Now shit is going to get real as he just declared war on her.

Even though I like Benten I'm glad the Nidaime did that as he isn't going to take any of her BS like everyone else. It goes to show you can't get away with stuff just cause ur pretty and most guys in the show basically would do anything for her.

Episode 4

There's a shogi tournament going on at the zoo with Yajiro and Gyokuran playing, while the tanukis are transformed into shogi pieces. Things get out of hand when those brothers are promoting themselves to ranks that are not part of shogi. Of course, Yasaburo doesn't exactly play by the rules as he does what he pleases with the game, going as far as to have the fool's hermit as one of the pieces. Sometime later, Yaichiro plays against Gyokuran with Gyokuran winning, but then she disappears inside the board. I have seen crazy shogi battles before, but that was really something.

Episode 4:

That was great, one of the most unique shogi matches I've seen in awhile.

Didn't like those brothers that were trying to bully the others though. I also kinda like the "red fur of fate" theme that expresses love between tanuki in this show. It sounds almost kinda poetic if you ask me.

Episode 4

This episode there is a shogi match between Yajiro and Gyokuran but things get outta hand when the tanuki brothers cause a fight with Yasaburo. The one that ends this fight he Gyokuran when the brothers take the fight to far and gets rid of them. Later we get a flashback of Yoichiro and Gyokuran when they use to play shogi but after she threw a match Yoichiro got mad and bit the shogi table. Later with the help of Yasaburo he is able to get Yoichiro and Gyokuran to play again.

I like the backstory that shows how Yoichiro and Gyokuran like each other but can't seem to confess to one another.

Episode 5

Everybody goes on a trip on board the Yajiro Express over Kyoto, and Benten also happens to be taking the trip as well. And then they run into the twins who are dressed up as gentlemen and run their mouths, really irritating Gyokuran. Thus, a fight breaks out in the sky when fireworks are shot at Yajiro, prompting him to land on their ship, and then everybody gets an earful about what a tengu's duty is supposed to be. After all that, Benten is feeling all broken. That was quite a fight there as those twins continue to be annoying as hell, all while Benten is prone to mood swings once again.

Benten is my favorite character. I think these events will spur more character growth for her.

While I find Benten interesting I can't say I like her or feel much sympathy for her. Nor do I understand why Yasaburo is at all sympathetic towards her, and even seems to like her at times. I get there were moments in the past, but considering what happened since then, those moments hardly seem to have the emotional impact on the same level as eating one's father and stuff. So I'm hoping the Nidaime proves to be the new sheriff in town who ends up not only being a friend to Yasaburo and family, but puts Benten in her place as she has been running rather wild and being allowed to get away with it.

Episode 6

In the first season, there's the Friday Club that had a tanuki hot pot every year, and the Thursday Club was created in order to put a stop to that. With the Friday Club at an onsen in Arima that Yasaburo makes a trip over there. There, he happens to run into Soun, and once again he's up to no good with Yasaburo being sent to hell and turning into the red oni. But after meeting Benten again that she brings him back. That was quite an adventure there, and I was hoping that Soun was the tanuki eaten at the end of the first season, but he wasn't.

Episode 7

After being brought back from hell, Yasaburo gets a taste of heaven in the hot springs, with the Thursday and Friday clubs bathing together, and even Benten has gotten in with the guys in preparation for the banquet. There, they discuss what the tanuki hot pot is all about and one guy is asking to put an end to the tradition, but those Friday Club guys aren't backing down. Tanuki hot pot is all about love, and Yasaburo is none too pleased about the way the club defines love being forced on others by their sophisitc ideals. Even so, Yasaburo is interested, and he joins the Friday Club and Soun is none too pleased It turns out that Soun is an oni and he got shot by Tenmaya. That was quite a change by Yasaburo despising Soun all this time, but even so he just didn't want to see Soun go out like that.
