  • 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 ...

    Totally worth your time
    While at the beginning it might be a bit confusing, it eventually all comes together, each episode more or less has its own sub-plot, while the overarching story is still there, which I personally like alot. Initially I did get frustrated trying to follow all the character's with alot of similar names, but the story and emotional impact makes up for any trivial issues and it's open ending.

    EPIC!! nothing more to say
    This title anime is beyond what most reviews have said of it..Beautiful art, great storyline and humor. This might not be the longest review but the most heartfelt defiantly. If your looking for a story that embodys the strangeness and wonder of Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away then you have found your series. I cannot tell you how surprised I was at the plot twists, the wonderful way the Japanese ...

    I was fooled by the picture
    I wont lie that the story line was decent, which made me watch the 2nd season, but this anime was quite dissapointing overall. For an anime with soo much blood, there seems to be no fighting what so ever. If your looking for an action sword fighting Rurouni kenshin/ akame ga kill type of anime look elsewhere.

    So basically there are humans transforming demons, and a main character with a cursed ...

  • 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.
