Woohoo! The continuation of Sengoku Basara and I couldn't be more pleased...

Everything is a 9... duh!? It's like watching Gintama + Bleach with all the familiar voices around...

The battle for peace is never easy and these guys have it bad... friends vs friends... family vs family... and like the 1st series, this one is all action from beginning to end... and of course a little conversation, here and there...

I'd say that the fight scenes here are better, the story more focused and the characters can really stand out on their own... leaders from the first series took a backseat this time so that means more characters! it's great, yeah sure! but I haven't really digested all the names and places yet and here are more names to memorize... geez! well, not complaining...

Their previous enemy was a Devil now it's an Ape (or is it a Gorilla?)... anyway, at least I can say that this one's more worthy than Oda Nobunaga since he just doesn't fight in the end... the main characters are pretty much the same: Masamune is still arrogant but charming, Yukimura is still an idealistic brat, Kojuro is still the ever loyal right eye... sadly, Sasuke got less screentime... Musashi (a new character) now provides the comic relief... I think they focused more on Ichigo, i mean Keiji, this time around... but we won't really see him fight... he actually provides all the talking and the drama...

There are also a couple of surprises here like a ghostly apparition (?) and some people who we thought are dead but seemingly are not... nani?!

Music is still darn catchy to me... and this time we get 2 ED songs... I personally like the first one better...

For those who enjoyed Sengoku Basara, I would definitely recommend SB Two... it's a fast-paced, action-packed, testosterone filled ride... :)

On a side note and it kinda went something like: "once he swings that hot spear, i just cannot keep my cool" or "i would like to see how he holds those spears"... was this intentional or does the subs need improvement? am i missing something?!?

I know that this anime has hot guys in it but if this continues then maybe it's a sign that it's time to throw in some women! But not like Kasuga or Ichi, for goodness sake! Maybe more like Matsu... This is Samurai Kings not Queens, right?! darn it!

* Sorry I just couldn't help it * :S
