Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun 2 episode 10
Okay, not entirely unexpected but pretty amusing. I would’ve made a slight alternation if it were up to me, but that’s fine. I can only hope that the ending will be just as good as the rest of the episode. I don’t like rushed endings.
So Shinobu was the lucky winner after all, huh? That’s fine. I also like the fact that his bead was hidden within his body and that he has tengu powers. I think he would prove to be a nice addition to Shino’s little group of misfits. It doesn’t change the fact that Shino has to collect the remaining beads in order to obtain all eight of them, which will probably prove to be a lot harder when Sousuke’s twin refuses to play along and continued to interfere with their quest. I wonder… Will Sousuke die as well when his twin is killed? Or will he simply just live without that part of him? I’m kind of getting Dragon Ball Z flashbacks here (Piccolo and Kami).
I’ll be looking forward to seeing the remaining episodes. I think it’ll become a bit more interesting now that Shino has someone like himself to talk to. I can’t imagine that it’s very nice to be an adult but to have to live in a young boy’s body. You can’t really impress a woman with a young boy’s body, at least not sane ones.
The final battle looks promising, too. Yet another character surfaces at the end of this episode, giving us the impression that she, just like Sousuke’s twin, has her own plans with the eight beads (and their rightful owners). I can hardly wait to see what it is that those beads can do. There must be a reason why a lot of people are interested in them.
