  • Very very good story!
    I love this! The art is great and the story interesting. They keep throwing in clues to what is actually going on. Shino is very well developed character (even if he puts on a childish image, literally) and the story focuses on his relationships with the other characters. They are all lying to each other for the others' perceived benefit. Probably more of a story for girls though.

    Surprisingly interesting
    Started watching this anime expecting mainly action with enough story to carry it. It delivers the reverse, but with a surprisingly compelling story. The second season is much more interesting than the first. Can't wait to see how this develops.

  • great story makes up for action
    this anime has an amazing story and that makes up for the little action it has. When second season finally came I was extremely happy. Eight Dogs of The East is the best anime of this year. Good job Shino and Sosuke :).

  • i am happy there is a second season
    engaging fantasy anime. and so many cute guys... what is not to like? a lot more we need to find out about the characters, adversaries and rio. color and animation and japanese voice over actors match characters well. music, ending scene somewhat serene. enough for me to watch it all.

  • Amazing Art and interesting story!
    This show has one of the best art I have seen so far! The story was interesting enough to get you to look forward to the next episode. It became one of the reasons I look forward to Mondays.The characters are funny and lovable. It is one of my favorites this Summer!

    Spirits and demons - good or evil?
    Like previous reviews state, this is a character driven anime. What makes you get hooked is the development of the front figures in the anime. Like the idea with different spirits, and that not all demons are evil, and that they can be controlled.

    Very good, but one warning.
    Do not watch this Anime expecting a ton of action! This is a character driven drama before anything else, and the fights tend to be very brief. It's beautiful though, and I suggest it otherwise! It's easily one of the most interesting anime I've seen in terms of the setting being what it is, and the characters are funny.

    It's a sweet and cool anime! :D
    If you need a anime where a boy is cool, cute, scared of bugs. Got a talking dog, a weird team. Then this is perfect!
    This is a anime about Shino who is a 18 years old boy who lives in his 15 years old body. He's traveling with his childhood friend, Sousuke.
    You know what to do if you need some cuteness and shounen ai signs xD

    I Still Continues :)
    Wow! New characters, new creatures, and a lot more surprises and mystery to solve. I believe the next season is going to be epic. Probably more fighting, and more suspense within each characters lives. Can't wait for the next episodes coming out soon.

    Excellent! Looking forward to Season 2.
    I watch and have watched a lot of anime of all kinds. I liked this one better than anything I've watched since FMA. Characters are all interesting with distinct and diverse personalities that follow logically. (The characters don't act against their personality type.) Art, of course, is wonderful (very important!), and the plot line is interesting and unique. I do like a bit of ...
