  • Hakkenden or (Hi)story of 8 dogs, a great find!
    I was very pleased as this anime has all the components of Japanese legendary spirits that is used in a unique way: Making it selves enter humans that were on the verge of death but with a strong will to survive and purpose. Military and the Western religion also comes into play smoothly as intrigue builds instead of convoluting the plot and that, alone is quite a feat. Each chapter gives you a ...

    Up Coming Masterpiece!
    This is truly a work of art! When the series only started, I watched thinking it was setting a nice atmosphere, and I was looking forward the next episode. However, this is starting to show promise as a true masterpiece! I'd never expected this story to go so far!

  • Great show ; amazing art .
    This anime is very nice indeed . Not just because of the fact that there are pretty boys bouncing around and popping up all over the place, but it's plot is very nice , and the art is very beautifully done . The colors of the hair, to the clothing, and the shades of the eyes-- it's very nicely done. The songs are also very touching to hear . For instance , in one episode one of the songs were very ...

  • Surprisingly Good and Addicting
    I absolutely love the story of Hakkenden. It's great how well animated and colored it is, and I appreciate how they removed the more shoujo-style art that was used for the manga. I don't usually like watching series with only a few episodes (I'm at six so far), but I don't regret starting this one.

    Not usually my thing, however I'm intrigued
    While I'm not sure if its just the fanservice towards the ladies but there are moments when it feels a yaoi scene will break loose and I'm always prepared to skip it, but it never does and I get ever more immersed in the story. The art styling is simply magnificent I do say, it is probably one of the most beautiful works I have seen in a long time visually, audibly, and depth of the story. I find ...

  • Entertaining to say the least
    Decent artwork, good voices, so far a very good show. Action sequences haven't left me wanting, and it is a good story so far that has been revealed. I find myself waiting for the next episode to come out.

    Really good anime series
    I wasn't sure about it when i saw the preview but man is it good. I'm hooked into it. It's a great way to relax. I personally feel like it's also describing us in a way. I say that you haven't seen it, watch it.

    Good show for its genre type. Excited for Season 2!
    This style or genre of this show is not something that I really watch on a regular basis, but if something has a well written and involved story line I will give it a chance and this was one of those instances. Every character that is in the show for even an episode has good development that the view would need to focus so that they get all the parts of the story. I am actually really excited for ...
