Btw, I'm not very familiar with the original Hakkenden story, but afaik the setup goes like this:

Going by this, and assuming the mangaka applied some poetic license in her manga,

I just looked up the original story and woooh boy. o_____o) (It sounds pretty awesome, though.)
About Shino, that's what I'm thinking now, too, but your explanation and the extra info on the Hakkenden story made things a lot clearer. Thanks.

Lots of guys, one girl. It's Shoujo!
Which means I'll be watching this one.
The characters looks nice too.
Story itself looks promising as well.
It's nice they're not "only" human.
Maybe, just maybe this will be an action filled shoujo anime.
Let's hope so.

No, Shino is biologically male. He crossdressed as the Princess.

Ep 2 - story is still average, but lots of surprises on other fronts...

1. DOGGIE! HUGE DOGGIE!! ♥ First it's Shinsekai yori with giant weirdo kitties, now it's a giant dog... (or wolf, whatever) plus a bunch of adorable foxes... heaven!

2. It's a bit weird to hear Namikawa Daisuke being a charming gentleman after Squealer in Shinsekai yori... the guy is ridiculously versatile.

3. oh, Sugiyama Noriaki! I haven't heard him in a long time.

4. OOH GUY IN UNIFORM. Also half-naked and chained and whipped. I approve.

5. Hm, Green Shirt Guy sounds a bit familiar at times, but not familiar at all at other times... weird, let's check who does his voice--- Terashima Takuma?! Whoa! This is the manliest I've heard him sound so far. Wikipedia tells me he took the role over from Nakai Kazuya so double thumbs up for him.

6. It's kind of ridiculous how this world is a fantasy early 20th century - and then there's Terashima's character with his sneakers and jeans and shirt that says 12. What. XD;; (OK, Shino's outfit is not very authentic either, but he's the main character so I wouldn't mind that.)

Pretty safe for me to drop this show after another ep as I don't get WTF is going on.

But I find it fun getting confused and talking about it here.

I'm enjoying this in a modest way - it feels like an anime from 10 years ago, when fantasy/occult shows full of bishounen were more common. This is, of anything, a perfect fit for DEEN I think - their bright color schemes and so-so animation play up that retro feel, and they have a good handle on this type of character archetype.

Plus, it's always fun to see the yuri-loving hypocrites have aneurysms at the merest hint of shounen-ai.

Hamaji really is a pain.
At least he looks fun and interesting.
His appetite reminds me of Luffy from One Piece.
It's nice they threw in some funny parts.
Satomi looks interesting as well, but he keeps conflicting with Shino.
Sousuke's dog attracting thing was pretty LOL

Nothing seriously entertaining about the show but nothing dramatically boring and annoying either so I guess I'll keep this one just for a mix.

Spoiler for ep 2:


I'm having trouble deciding which side of the equation (good vs evil) all the characters introduced in ep 2 belong on. Some are obvious. Others, I'm not so sure about yet.

Yeah, but that's probably because K so relentlessly promoted itself, and the fact that many more people were watching it rather than any qualitative difference in the shounen-ai element.

I think it's simply because this anime is very, very clearly catering for a female audience, so most of those manly men who were crying about how K betrayed them with all that icky gayness wouldn't even touch this.

That and this show hasn't tried to fling a naked catgirl at the audience.

At this point , the most bait K's given was some blushing, while we're already being given stuff like this in the preview:

LOL. I wonder about that preview as well. Genpachi...taken an interest in him already! I do wonder about the brown haired guy though (Gen's brother; can't remember his name). Is he the same guy as the brown haired kid that died with them at the very beginning in ep1? He looks like that kid.
