Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East Anime Gets 2nd Season

Post by Sir Maddy on Thu Mar 28, 2013 3:47 am



The May issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Asuka Ciel magazine is announcing on Saturday that a second season of the Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East television anime series has been green-it. The anime adapts Miyuki Abe's original manga that reimagines the setting from the classic Hakkenden samurai novel as a female-oriented story with supernatural elements.

The series stars the voice cast members Tetsuya Kakihara as Shino Inuzuka, Satoshi Hino as Sōsuke Inukawa, Ayahi Takagaki as Hamaji, and Nobuhiko Okamoto as Murasame. Other cast members include Daisuke Namikawa, Hiroshi Kamiya, Shinichiro Miki, Jun'ichi Miyake, Takuma Terashima, and Tomoaki Maeno.

The series premiered in Japan on January 5. Crunchyroll streamed the first season in various countries outside of Japan as it airs, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the first season for North America.

Dropped after 4 or 5 episodes because it seemed like yaoi was going to break out at any moment.

Yeah it isn't anything too great but at least this is good news. Regardless of how this last episode goes it wont feel like it has an ending, there are just too many plot points not even half utilised, so any ending they go with will just feel rushed.

So I am actually for this getting a second season, and will watch it because while not great it is not like watching this will kill me. A big influencing factor in my decision is that they did make Murasame a lot more interesting in the newest one.

@Spor, I wont deny that it isn't like that because it still seems to be that way even after 12 eps. Also with the newest ep they said that the MC was "totally his type" so it could still easily go that direction if that is what the writers want.
