Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun 2 episode 02

How could I not? I shamed myself by not writing about the first season, thinking that it wasn’t interesting enough, but I refuse to make the same mistake twice! I simply cannot find the right words to describe just how interesting this show really is.

We met a lot of new characters and saw a lot of new moves. I think it’s brilliant that Shino and Sousuke are out on a mission to find all of the people with those little shiny balls (no phun intended).

The only thing I would’ve done differently is Shino’s appearance. I think it would be nice to see his adult side every now and again, just like when Murasame went berserk during the first season, allowing Shino to take on his real form. The possibilities would be practically endless if Shino somehow managed to take on his real form instead of constantly looking like a thirteen year-old boy.

He’s hilarious when he’s not doing anything, he’s badass when he’s ready to fight, but he’s absolutely epic when he goes berserk. Also, I think that whole “he who possesses Murasame will undoubtedly meet a tragic end” thing sounds brilliant. I can’t wait to see how this thing ends.

It is quite obvious that Shino stands in the centre of all of this, and that Riou is trying very hard to either protect or control Shino. Maybe a combination of both? It is quite obvious that Riou knows what’s going on and that he’s planning to do something when Shino has found all of the beads and their owners. Things will get better from here on out, I’m sure of that.
