The Japanese television channel BS11 aired a commercial for the second season of the Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East anime series on Wednesday. The ad previews Faylan's opening theme song "wonder fang."
Both seasons of the anime adapt Miyuki Abe's original manga that reimagines the setting from the classic Hakkenden samurai novel as a female-oriented story with supernatural elements. Osamu Yamasaki serves as the anime's chief director, while Mitsue Yamazaki is its director at Studio DEEN. Both Yamasaki and Yamazaki are in charge of the series scripts, while Hiromi Kato is designing the characters.
The series stars the voice cast members Tetsuya Kakihara as Shino Inuzuka, Satoshi Hino as Sōsuke Inukawa, Ayahi Takagaki as Hamaji, and Nobuhiko Okamoto as Murasame. Other cast members include Daisuke Namikawa, Hiroshi Kamiya, Shinichiro Miki, Jun'ichi Miyake, Takuma Terashima, and Tomoaki Maeno.
Ceui will perform the ending theme for the second season.
The first 13-episode series premiered in Japan in January, and Crunchyroll streamed the series in various countries outside of Japan as it aired. Sentai Filmworks has licensed the first season for a home video release later this year.
The second season will premiere on Tokyo MX on July 7.
