“Sengoku Basara: Season Two” is the anime series based on the Capcom video game franchise. It’s been quite a while since the death of Oda Nobunaga, but that doesn’t mean that Japan is peaceful. A new warlord, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, wishes to unify the warring states and make Japan a strong, prosperous nation. However, he is ruthless in his methods and will let nothing get in his way. Will the other warlords be able to stop him?
This second season holds up well with the same over the top action and well written melodrama that “Sengoku Basara” fans love. The big flaw is that the writers needed to develop Hideyoshi’s sympathetic side a bit more. A good example would be that he wants peace as much as his friend, but feels like he has no other choice but to conquer the whole island; only to fall into the same cycle as those he opposes. Honolulu “Sengoku Basara” fans will like this sequel.
