So I've been wondering for a long time if I should buy Basilisk or not. Well I finally bought it and have now seen it and I am very disappointed. Why?
First of all there are so many characters to keep track of and get to know in such a short time that you end up not giving a rats ass about any of them. They are all shallow and one dimensional.
Second reason is that its just plain boring. It keeps the same pace throughout pretty much the whole series, and that is a slow and undramatic one. witch doesn't always have to be a bad thing but here it is.
The good things I guess is the animation which are fluid and nice in general. Some of the ninjas technique are awesome.
But overall I thought basilisk was a pretty mediocre and impersonal anime series. And I don't recommend it.
