    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.

    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 ...

    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. ...

    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 ...

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Hakkenden: Inesperado, mas muito bom!
    Bem, Hakkenden foi um anime que eu não esperava gostar tanto! Assisti um dia por não ter nada mais pra assistir, e , como acho que aconteceu com todos que tiveram o primeiro contato achei estranho no começo, um pouco mal explicado, confuso. Entretanto resolvi insistir no anime e para minha surpresa acabei gostando muito!
    Embora o início seja um pouco confuso, com o decorrer dos episódios tudo ...
