After watching the last episode, I'm a little disappointed and back with an updated review.

I'm have watched the entire series including both Season 1 and 2. So I'm under that assumption you watched Season 1.

Story 8/10
First off, the first season focused on Shino, a boy who looks like he's 13 but is actually 18 because he is the holder of a living sword name Murasame, has to travel from village to village to find these beads or gems. It gets a little annoying where the story doesn't progress unless Shino goes traveling to another village or town

In the second season, the series focus a read more

This review will contain spoilers for the first season only, it is strongly advised to watch the first season before viewing the second season.

Story: 7
Hakkenden season 2 continues right where season 1 left off. In this season Shino and his group continue to search for all eight of the marbles. The new character Ao becomes slightly more present in the second season, but not as much as I would have liked him to. Although I did enjoy this season, I found the second season to not be as "good" as the first season in terms of episode quality consistency. I expected the plot to be read more

If you liked the first season, then you will like this season twice as much. While the first season introduced the main cast, this season expands on their stories and answers some of the unanswered questions posed initially.

So far we haven't found all of the 8 holders of the jewels but are getting pretty damm close. It's kinda weird that looking for them is kinda like a side-thing but this doesn't hurt the story at all. I am very happy that we get to find out more about the characters' past. It makes the story seem more complex, like the characters are all linked read more

The art was good and I loved the opening, but as I went farther down it just droned on, they were getting anywhere the main characters powers were the only one I actually knew, the rest were fodder in my eyes. There was the 2 demon guys and some other people was all I remember because of how poor character development. True I never finished the serious but It was because how boring it was getting, the only thing that kept me going for episodes 4-8 was the music and the mystery of their enemy, but even that wasn't enough. I really wish there read more
