    Rooting for Another Season
    This show was a diamond in the rough on my queue, and I'm soo glad I decided to watch it! It is beautifully animated and the voice-acting is superb. The bro-ship between the characters stays platonic and familial while the jokes are light-hearted and funny! I couldn't get enough, and I was really sad when I reached the last episode.

    There's definitely more story to be told! Finale+ spoilers ...

  • Need a Season 3 ASAP!
    One of my favorites so far. The character development, interactions, and relationships are amazing and the animation is beautiful. Want a Season Three! I love the bond between the main cast, and then the Eight towards the end! Adore this so much! Watch It!

  • Beautiful and involving, but ultimately disappointing.
    This series has beautiful style and solid writing. The characters are well conceived and consistant. The animation never feels cheap.

    The pacing sometimes drags. The setup in the first couple episodes has a different feel from the rest of the series. And ultimately I found it anti-climactic.

    Ultimately it's enjoyable and worth a look.

  • I watch it all in a night.
    I like the story and the building of charters, along with the way they introduce them.
    I wish they went more in debt with the main charter. It a awesome show to watch in one night, it to short to be anything above a good short story.

    I wish I had more to say, forgive my poor grammar, and spelling.

  • Hakkenden is Great!!
    Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East is one of the more interesting Shoujo anime I've seen to date. The fact that two brothers are attempting to save their sister is definitely different than, say, a guy trying to save the girl he loves like in other Shoujo anime.

    That being said, we watched this anime at one of our club meetings so we could, in turn, discuss with them different genres of anime. ...
