The journey to find all eight sacred gems continues, as Sousuke and Shino travel in search of the remaining gem holders. From the shadows the Imperial Church continues to scheme, and a mysterious woman seeks to fulfill a sinister plot with the gem holders at its heart. As the origin of the gems comes to light, so does the truth behind Sousuke's doppelganger, Ao, as he resurfaces with his own goal—one involving Sousuke and his gem!

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.

ToT this is a really good anime. Will, there be a season 3? , I'm still looking forward to it up until now... The anime and the fights scenes were all great itsa really an outstanding anime. I was searching in google for the season 3 but.... there's really no news TOT, shino still haven't gotten the bead from Ao so I want expecting a season 3 but I haven't found news of it.... it saddens me.... i hope there will be a season 3 or last season., don't just end it like that , there's still more antagonists to defeat etc. . If there's read more

Well once again I'm here only seconds after finishing this season.

As always, I spot the anime and it takes me a long time just to start up on it, in this case, I had already watched the first episode of the first season in dubbed.
That wasn't impressive enough for me.

After a couple of years, I came back and watched the series in their native language.

This season of Hakkenden took me on another emotional ride.
To start off with, I love how Shino and Sousuke's trust in each other were put to the test and the result did not fail to surprise me. We read more
