  • Frikkin freaky!

    Basilisk is shaping up to be the ultimate anime action show not just for its over the top and nicely choreographed and executed action scenes, but for its creative ways the characters battle each other. We have Jimushi who is a living torso and uses these weird things on his chest moving forward like a millipede, and his way of battle is completely reliant that his opponent don't know of his hidden blade in his mouth. And then we have Shogen who we've seen battling in the first episode, but showed off some new tricks here. I normally place heavy emphasis on character development, but the action was just too great that it really compensated for that.
