  • 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.

  • Intriguing story and wonderful art
    It's a great twist on an old myth (I'm a sucker for Japanese folk tales and the like), and the characters are so engaging. There's quite a bit of action, balanced perfectly with deeper storytelling and emotions. The relationships between some of the characters are just beautiful (regardless of whether you see it as friendship or as light shounen-ai). I really wish the manga would be released ...

  • Interesting and well put together
    Great story line, awesome characters. Each character holds their own, most have pets that talk and all that sort of stuff. I really enjoyed it so far I'm only on episode 20 out of 26 so I don't know the ending. I hope it doesn't disappoint. Watched in one day couldn't seem to get away from it. oh and some pretty good action scenes.

  • Great show, too bad it's over.
    I really liked the show. It's interesting to find out this is remake of a Japanese longest Classical Literature pieces. Also that this is one out of many re-makes. Maybe I will check out the others. I also liked the animation a lot, it was really beautifully done. The ending was a bit lame, but overall I enjoyed it.
