    An anime you must watch!
    The first episode caught my attention and I wanted to keep watching. The suspense and unusual yet unique plot brings a pack load of excitement. You feel like your in the show yourself wanting to find the answers like Shino, the main character. You'll see once you get into the series. It's not your common supernatural anime with just ghost and demons but something far more greater and exciting. ...

    I am in love with this series!
    Not only is the plot idea completely brilliant, but the art itself is fantastic! I love how the characters react, and despite what others might say, this anime does have a real plotline going. I know that there is going to be a second season coming out this summer, and I am pumped!
    I fell in love with this series, and I watched it for 11 hours straight...that is how into it I got. So if you're ...

    Great art and good unusual story line
    At the beginning of the season, it just had a better than average plot, but the last couple episodes showed that this anime has potential to become very popular. Great art. Cant wait for the next season. Its finally an anime that hasn't totally copied another one. Love the story line.

    This is what Shojo is meant to be.
    When I go back and look at the Anime I've loved. The Shojo titles I've seen and liked are few and far between. Hakkenden is actually serialized in Asuka Ciel, which is a Shojo magazine. The beauty of Hakkenden, is that it's not overt Shojo, and really transcends the Genre. It's got enough action, plot, development, and good character design for fans that don't even like Shojo to enjoy.
    The ...

    Season 2 Is Gonna Be Amazing ^_^
    I really have to say that Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East really exceeded my expectations. I was thinking that the first episodes were a little poor with the lack of information they gave us but they later on informed us through the show. I'm really hope the season 2 comes out quick because Ima die if I have to wait any longer. Overall though this anime really proved me wrong and in the end it ...

    Really good anime series
    I wasn't sure about it when i saw the preview but man is it good. I'm hooked into it. It's a great way to relax. I personally feel like it's also describing us in a way. I say that you haven't seen it, watch it.

    It isn't my favorite, but I enjoyed it.
    Despite the choppy, and fast ending of this season, I was rather content with the plot and the characters. But sometimes it can be a bit cliched. Which I suppose isn't all that bad, but it gets rather annoying. The scary parts were intense, though, in my opinion.
    And some severely deny this, the whole "yaoi ...

    Good show for its genre type. Excited for Season 2!
    This style or genre of this show is not something that I really watch on a regular basis, but if something has a well written and involved story line I will give it a chance and this was one of those instances. Every character that is in the show for even an episode has good development that the view would need to focus so that they get all the parts of the story. I am actually really excited for ...
