After Musashi rescues Michiru Saruwatari from a demon, his friend Kojirou Kanemaki discovers that his father was a member of the Uesugi clan. Determined to learn more about his own past, Kojirou—alongside his Kanemaki clansmen—decides to participate in Uesugi's punitive expedition against the demon lord of Awaji Island: Yamata no Orochi, an eight-headed dragon that threatens to engulf the entire region.

However, upon joining Uesugi's military alliance, Musashi faces the harsh reality of fighting against powerful demons. Humiliated by his lack of power and inability to work in groups, he has to learn how to cooperate with his newfound allies. Meanwhile, the Obsidian Eight—a group pursuing the Obsidian Goddess that dwells within Musashi's body—resumes its hunt for Musashi, and plans to thwart the ongoing island operation. As the situation grows chaotic, Musashi and his friends must foil the machinations of the various factions conspiring to seize the Obsidian Goddess.

I just realised with the end of this anime that it has one piece potencial.
The anime itself needs to polish up some things but overall it's not bad, it's enjoyable:
- The animation is not top tier but it's not bad either. (better than one piece in the first episodes tbh).
- Althought the plot was rushed it is not boring, you can imagine how far it can go and there's so much potencial.
- I love the power system, in the last episodes you get to learn that there's more to just having red yellow or blue kitetsu, watching the trio grow their powers and learning to ...

Orient has finally come back from its wonky 1st split-cour in Winter, and has it changed my perception of how Shinobu Ohtaka has progressed as a mangaka? NOPE, not one bit at all.

With Part 2's arrival covering the 4th arc of the manga from Volumes 6 through to 13 (God, that almost looks like the anime is rushing, but the adverse is true becuse the manga chapter panels are getting shorter) showing the Awajishima Gekitou-hen a.k.a The Battle of Awaji Island arc, featuring the Kanemaki Band trio Musashi, Kojiro and Tsugumi descending onto Awaji Island to learn more about Kojiro's past. Pretty standard and typical ...

I don’t have a lot to say about the second coeur of “Orient” which I haven’t already said in my review of the first part. I think breaking apart Musashi from Tsugumi and Kojirou wasn’t the smartest move as their group chemistry holds the show together. A lot of this second half is Musashi getting dunked on over and over again and it gets fatiguing to watch fast.

I’m not a huge fan of newly introduced characters. They’re all very stand off-ish and by the time they have character arcs it’s a bit too late to start liking them. The only exception is Michiru who ...
