Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun 2 episode 03

Hey now, this turned out to be quite a nice episode. I didn’t expect that after the preview I had seen last week. This turned out to be a good week after all, huh? I can only hope that they can keep this up.

Let’s tackle that sprit thing first; an old man looking out for his business and family by asking Shino for advice on creating new recipes? Yeah… That’s a bit too much, don’t you think? Never would I have imagined that Shino was to give an old guy advice on how to make steamed buns with all sorts of gooey stuff inside. That was quite strange.

Shino was left to care for a group of children that refused to listen to his teachings. Only a little blind girl decided to stay and listen to his stories. I, of course, made the assumption that that little girl was a bit special, that she was in possession of one of those beads.

I liked this episode because it was pretty mysterious. We focussed almost an entire episode on this little girl that turned out to be pretty normal, or was she? I mean, Sousuke’s evil double showed up at the end to have a little talk with her. They wouldn’t normally show us that if there was something going on with that girl, right? I may watch the episode again later to see if I have missed something. I just hope that I won’t get to see a dead blind girl with missing body parts during the next episode.
