Hakyuu Houshin Engi has a few episodes and I decided to see what is up with the remake. First is there is a lot more blood than I remember. The show of the past had blood in it don’t get me wrong but there seems to be more here.
But that is not the thing that is bothering me. The pacing and jumping is something that caught me off guard. The first episode content was in separate ones in the original show. Plus the jumping between the activities in the palace and Taokubo were moving at a different speed as well.
Another point is that Dakki is kind of different as well. While she playful this time it is showing not just her cunning and quick thinking this seems to show how merciless she is even more. Whether to amuse herself or to get to a goal Dakki has no problem causing people to die who are in her way.
I should point out I am only referring to the show as my reference. I didn’t even know there was a manga so I cannot tell you if this is more true to it. Also these are not negatives. These basically the changes I have noticed watching the few episodes I have. What this in a nut shell is me having to relearn the series like I am watching it for the first time. I hope we all enjoy series return.
As always thank you for reading.
