  • Just give it a chance
    The story develops gradually and takes some time getting into. Eventually, the characters become loveable and you'll want to learn how they become intertwined. Admittedly, there is little character development, especially with Shino, but the static nature of each character's lifespan somewhat justifies their static nature. This anime has an interesting theme involving multiple philosophies which ...

  • Couldn't Take My Eyes Off The Screen!
    When I just came across this anime I thought I was going to find another anime to drop, but boy was I wrong. This anime had me pull all-nighters with how intriguing it was. I have watched this all two of these seasons within the past week and I have got to say I am disappointed that I have finished it, I wanted to keep watching. This anime always kept me guessing what was going to happen next. New ...

  • Iffy plot, but still enjoyable
    Sadly I cannot give Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East 5 stars.
    The art and animation is outstanding. The characters are also very likable. This is one of the reasons I kept watching.
    The plot was lacking severely and this really hurt the show. Let's say we sliced a plot pie into eight pieces. We got maybe--maybe--half of the pie and the rest was thrown away to leave us wondering ...

  • Good enough Story and Anime
    The animation is great and it has a pretty good story. However, seasons 2 ending left me wondering "was that it?". I wasnt mad, sad, happy, or anything because the ending is so lack luster. The show needs a 3rd season surly. But im not holding my breath.

    Definitely worth watching!
    This was an amazing series. It's has everything I could ask for blood, action, comedy, a plot that pulls you in and good characters but I felt that there was too many questions left unanswered at the end keeping it from being 5 stars. I really enjoyed watching this series and only wish it was longer.

  • Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East review ish
    I love Shino so much. This show is pretty good and I love watching it. I love the animation and the coloring. To me this show caring and sometimes dumb moments but I love it even though it just filled mostly guys in it. Plus, I love how the guys are pretty in this >_<

  • Love this anime, makes me excited
    Since translations on the manga are too slow, this is the best resort. They need to make season 3 ASAP. I need my BL moments. I need more answers. None of the episodes were boring. It was perfect. I wish the manga was translated faster, and I wish they had english versions of the manga for the US. But the anime will do.

  • Interesting Story - Recommended
    Interesting story - at times slow but overall would recommend watching. The characters and relationships between them are mostly developed, at times too developed. Mostly visually pleasing but felt somewhat rushed at the end by trying to jam the final battle which was a slight let-down.
