  • 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.

  • 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 :).

    Why does this exist.
    The only thing that would make this nonsensical excuse for an Anime somewhat understandable would be if it just turned into a BL drama, maybe then the story would somehow be given a plot that it so desperately needs. The writing in this show is so bad that I think that ten year old girls could create better fanfic than this trash. Let me give you an example of how bad the writing is:

    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.

  • 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.

    Amazing Story and Great Characters!
    I was skeptic coming into this series but was surprisingly pleased and was surprised at how little people know of this or watch this anime. The story can be a little slow for some people but I find that it keeps the audience well engaged in how the plot will uncover in the end. Definitely a story that keeps you thinking of the possibilities and creates a unique environment compared to many other ...

  • Awesome Anime and art!
    I really love this anime. Its not romantic in any way, so if you are looking for a romance anime, then this is not the one you are looking for. Well anyway, I just really love it. Its funny sometimes and sometimes epic in some parts. I like the openings too. The art is pretty. It has awesome art too. There are demons and such, but then they don't really look like that much of a monster, so that's ...

  • Loving the Characters
    There isn't much fighting, as it may seem when you hear about warriors. However, the character development is great and you really feel their emotion. If you enjoy drama this is a great anime. I am addicted to it!

  • One of the best animes i've seen
    Personally, when I first heard of the anime, it didn't catch my eye too much. But I thought I should give it a chance, and I will never regret that descision, because without a bdoubt this is one of the best animes i've ever seen. The animation, and the plot is spectacular, and I would definitely recommend this anime to anyone.
