Synopsis

A direct continuation of Shikabane Hime: Aka, taking place six months after Tagami Keisei's death at the hands of the Shichisei (Seven Stars), a group of elite Shikabane who act on more than just regrets. As per Keisei's dying wish, Kagami Ouri formed a temporary contract with Makina to save her from degenerating into a Shikabane. Since then, Ouri's been training to become a proper monk so that he can remain contracted to Makina and help her fight against the Shichisei -- the ones who originally killed Makina, the entire Hoshimura family, and now Keisei. However, the traitorous monk Shishidou Akasha has sided with the Shichisei in an attempt to destroy all Shikabane Hime and the entire monk organization that uses them -- Kougon Sect.

Shikabane Hime is kickass. The art is great, the animation is pretty awesome, and the story is well thought-out and structured.

The thing I love best, BEST, BEEEEEEEEST about this is:

Being a female, the fanservice can get extremely tiring in anime sometimes. Shikabane Hime is one of the few anime I've ever seen where the female characters kick so much ass and do it without all of the annoying fanservice. I haven't seen a single panty shot and the angled views that usually show the "goods" aren't excessive. Most of the angled shots are for the action scenes, and purely that. The only full-on fanservice read more

I'm not sure why they decided to make Kuro into a second season, rather than just episodes 14-25 of Aka. Then again, who am I to doubt the genius of those who decided to make a story about sexy, gun-wielding, zombie chicks. For those who haven't watched Aka, go watch it. Those who have will find that not much has changed. There is a lot more ecchi/fanservice, because we obviously didn't get enough of our necrophilia fixation in season one. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate ecchi humour just as much as the next guy, but I can't help but feel they're sending the wrong read more

Shikabane Hime : Kuro is the continuation of the series Shikabane Hime : Aka. There's not really a difference in time, it just continues like if it were the same series. My review will contain spoilers - the first part of this review is basically full of my emotions, whereas the second part is a bit more objective - hope you enjoy.

This is one of the best watches I've had in a LONG time. Action (GOOD action), DEATHS (YES), Horror, Drama, this shit is straight up awesome and really, the "unfinished ending" does not really bother, since the anime has everything pretty much covered read more

Recommendations

Both Have a lot to to of battle to protect someone special and has a lot of creatures involve

I recommend this if you like Monsters
They both have a similar bad ass girl that hides her emotions for her male sidekick while they kicks ass. If you enjoyed the harsh reality of claymore but adored the occasional 'romance' so to speak then you'll really take a liking to Corpse Princess a.k.a Shikabane Hime
both deal with demons, and fighting them
both have double pistols
both have a male protagonist
a world that full with magic e intrigue and spiritual thing,in order to defeat their enemy the main character must make a pact with ghost that way is similar with shikabane series that the main character must a make pact with corpse.In OP&ED the song is also song by the same actress (Angela)
both involve contracted people (girls needing to make a contract with a boy and chasing after her own kind) pandora hearts just started i can't pinpoint others similarity right know but i'm potitive that the on going episodes will show more so if you enjoyed shikabane hime you may enjoy this as well
Both are supernatural high school shows in which a high school boy with powers, accompanied by various girls who also have powers, including one unsociable girl with a massive gun, save the world against demonic creatures, with an intricate and dark plot unfolding in the background of their episodic adventures.

"Beautiful Fighter" by angela
