  • A hate love episode.

    9.0
    Basilisk has proven that it not only succeeds as an action anime, but a dramatic one too. With the way the Kouga has suffered their losses, and the way that Gennosuke seems to be the most likable ninja here, deep down inside you you're rooting for the Kouga because they've become the underdogs. And you know what happens? Kouga suffers even more, making you detest the Iga even more. Chinese films are famous for these things, playing with your emotions but making the ones you're cheering against overachieve. The feeling is bitter sweet; you hate it, but it provides for some great dramatic entertainment.moreless
