Intrigue in the Bakumatsu: Irohanihoheto Collection 2

 (TV) (2006-2007)

Intrigue in the Bakumatsu: Irohanihoheto Collection 2 Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

The Shogunate is in its final years, and war is fast approaching. When Akizuki Yojiro, a dark and mysterious mercenary, nears something supernatural with some kind of importance to him, the ornament on the end of his sword hilt waves in its direction, his eyes glow mysteriously, and he is driven to go after it. He comes across a traveling theater group who is out for revenge for the killing of the parents of the group's leader, and whose mysterious playwright likes to secretly help along events of history. Yojiro joins them to lend them his skill against their enemies, while dark conspiracy continues to follow behind him.

Intrigue in the Bakumatsu: Irohanihoheto Collection 2 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Intrigue in the Bakumatsu is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Sentai Filmworks with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. While this second volume continues with the same bifurcated aesthetic that marked the first volume, I'm now more of the mind that this is actually an upconversion (I haven't been able to find any relevant information online; if any member has definitive verifiable information, please pass it along and I'll include it in the review), as this second volume shows a more marked tendency toward consistent softness than the first volume did, for whatever reason. (The series aired during the 2006-07 television season, which would have been right on the cusp of when most anime shifted to HD.) But that said, my comments about the first volume's image quality hold largely true for this volume as well. The first thing that many anime fans will notice is how disparate several of the design aesthetics are in this series. Long swaths of the series are animated with an intentionally soft and even grainy look, which are then suddenly intercut with razor sharp sequences. Generally speaking, the softer elements tend to be used for flashbacks, while the "current" happenings are a good deal cleaner. A lot of the series tends to favor a muted color palette, with slate grays, browns and beiges filling the frame. That may lead some to think that there isn't much "wow" to the visual element of the series, but I personally was really impressed with the overall look of the series, and in fact it actually helps to make the show really pop when it does finally explode into brighter primary colors. Line detail here is very sharp and the overall image is generally clear and well detailed.


Intrigue in the Bakumatsu: Irohanihoheto Collection 2 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Intrigue in the Bakumatsu features both its original Japanese language track as well as an English dub, both presented via DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mixes. Once again, the Japanese track is mixed quite a bit lower than the English track, and so those who like their audio on the bombastic side will probably want to opt for the English dub, even if they generally tend to favor original language options. Fidelity on both of these tracks is excellent, and voice work is also appealing (and really quite similar in tone and general ambience) on both of these tracks. The series has some really nice music, including lots of cues that use kotos and ethnic flutes (or at least synthesizer approximations of those instruments), and those ring through the soundfield with a great deal of sharpness and appeal.
