And both men inexplicably have the same peony-shaped birthmark. Genpachi Inukai and Kobungo Inuta were raised hundreds of miles away as foster brothers, but they too share the same birthmark. When they went north as part of the army three years ago, they went to confront demons and came back forever transformed. Now the Imperial Church has come for Shino and Sosuke and they must find eight mystical gems and their owners or face a fate worse than death at the hands of the Church.
Our Review : With only five episodes out Hakkenden has already given itself a good reputation. The animation is smooth, the art is clean, and the story has a great basis with an interesting cast of characters. However character development so far is good it can easily get better. Overall this anime has a lot of potential. I recommend this anime to people who like the anime 07- Ghost as it gives a familiar feeling and is about a young boy that holds a hidden power or Natsume Yuujinchou because of the how the main character seems to have yokai all around him.
