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.

Okay, Imma be honest with you. The first 5 episodes or so of this anime are absolute trash. I don't know WHAT Shinobu Otaka was thinking, but they're a god awful mess and I think the primary reason why the ranking for this show is so low.

But if you stick with it, everything from episode 6 to 12 is actually pretty good, and everything past episode 12 is PHENOMENAL. If you like Magi, this has a really similar vibe. It's well executed, and Shinobu Otaka shines with her worldbuilding, mixing of fight scenes with emotional story beats, and making you feel like the characters are ...

im gonna give (7.98) for the detailed ratings. Too bad,it kinda dissapointing me since i was expecting this gonna be good after watching the first season of the anime.

Quite a disappointing story but I can't say why. From the review of the first season, I always say that the power system in this anime is one of the weaknesses of the story because of its unclear elements. Coupled with the process of the second season's story, it makes the quality of the story in this anime seem to have decreased. For characterization, the story presented between the main character and the main heroine is quite ...

From the same mangaka of Magi, Orient not only got an anime adaptation but it manages to get a part 2 of the anime adaptation. So, surely it is better than the prequel. Well, it is both yes and no. Not only the story develops even more but it is also a lot more action packed compared to the last season. You can see the effort put into this anime but the problem is there is more action compared to the last season, which also means it requires better animation to properly display everything that is going through that moment. Unfortunately, most of the time ...
