Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun 2 episode 11
There are one or two episodes left, which means that you should be able to tell what’s about to happen. You can. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily. Hakkenden Touhou Hakken Ibun is known for its exciting twists and sudden unpredictability.
I was really wondering what they were going to do with this episode. We just found the eighth and final bead owner. This would imply that Shino has found all eight bead owners and beads. My mind immediately went to Sousuke’s twin, whom holds the final bead. I thought Shino was going to look for him and retrieve Sousuke’s bead.
Unfortunately, things seem a lot more complicated now. Sousuke’s no longer the chosen by the bead. It seems his twin is now the lucky winner, which makes things ever so complicated. Sousuke is starting to lose his body to him, which could also mean that he could cease to exist soon. It’s all very complicated and interesting, but I doubt that’s going to happen when Shino is still able to put up a fight on his behalf.
Sousuke’s evil twin, Ao, has been conspiring with an unknown woman. Most of us only have a faint idea of what the beads will do when brought together. We won’t know for certain until it actually happens, but what’s bothering me most is the woman that Ao hangs out with. She appeared out of nowhere and now Shino suddenly starts remembering things about his mother that he couldn’t before? Coincidence? I doubt. I would not be surprised if that woman turned out to be related to Shino somehow. There would be no point for Shino to start asking questions about his mother when his best friend is slowly fading away. Next week’s episode sure shows a lot of promise…
