Hakkenden: Tōhō Hakken Ibun

The August issue of Kadokawa Group Publishing's Ciel Tres Tres magazine is announcing on Saturday that the Hakkenden: Tōhō Hakken Ibun anime will air in 2013. Miyuki Abe's manga inspiration for the anime reimagines the setting from the classic Hakkenden samurai novel as a female-oriented manga with supernatural elements.

Staff Announced:


Coming January 2013! Ann

Ugh...Studio Deen again?!>.< Well, if they can give it a decent budget&the same visuals ala Sankarea, then it'll probably turn out ok. Nevertheless, I love the manga by Abe Miyuki so I'll definetely going to watch the anime no matter how it turns out later. Hopefully they can do the artwork&those beautiful chara design of Abe Miyuki in the manga some justice&the anime didn't turn out to be dissapointing.

Am I the only one amused by the fact that the crow gets more character design sketches than the humans? :heh:

Tworble 2012-10-26 08:02

The director of "Toward the Terra?" Deen or not, I'm in.

Seriously they sort of proved themselves with Sankarea they can do a good job with graphics if they tried but we never know. I'm also in when the cast is like this.

Theme songs announced :

Opening theme : "God FATE" by Faylan
Ending theme : "String of Pain" by Tetsuya Kakihara

Not really a fan of shoujo, but I was intrigued by it because of the Guilty Crown character designer getting involved. Since Faylan, one of my favorite female J-Pop artists in recent memory is involved as well, it makes me even more excited and I already know that the opening theme will have a "cool'n'edgy" tone just like many other theme songs from other animes the singer is involved. The only reason I'm going to give it a shot is to watch mainly for the visuals and the opening theme.

Just watched the PV. From what I see, it's Hiiro no Kakera with Guilty Crown visuals, and it was magnificient. I think I'm going to watch the first episode to see what the hype is about.

Seems to be 5 days late simulcast by Crunchyroll.

Weird, when I looked at the series page the airtime was 3am EST on Thursdays, looks like it got pushed back a few hours from that to around 7am (erm, not that I would be up to watch it regardless, guess someone just typed it in wrong on the show page).
