An acquired taste
23 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

Its beautiful design aside, The Hakkenden takes a bit of getting used to. The traditional-samurai-tragedy mood of this series, makes it mostly for "those who like that sort of thing" - but if you ARE one of those, samurai-tragedies don't come much better than this.

The bizarrely supernatural is made to seem absolutely reasonable, in a way normally only known in "magical realism".
