  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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 :).

  • 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.

  • Amazing Art and interesting story!
    This show has one of the best art I have seen so far! The story was interesting enough to get you to look forward to the next episode. It became one of the reasons I look forward to Mondays.The characters are funny and lovable. It is one of my favorites this Summer!

    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.

    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 ...

    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.
