Shin Hakkenden (神八剣伝, "legend of the eight divine swords") is a Japanese anime series. The anime is based on the epic novel Nansō Satomi Hakkenden (which also had an earlier OVA adaptation, The Hakkenden) except it is set in the future.[1] Directed by Katsuyoshi Yatabe, the anime's 26 episodes were broadcast on TV Tokyo between April 3, 1999 and September 25, 1999.


The anime uses three pieces of theme music; one opening theme and two ending themes. "Memories" by Angela is the series' opening theme. "Kitto Onaji Hoshi no Naka de" (きっと同じ星の中で) by Friend of mine is the series' ending theme from the first to the thirteenth episode. "Atarashii Hibi Shin Hakkenden Special Mix" (あたらしい日々神八剣伝スペシャルミックス) by RIZCO is the series' ending theme from the thirteenth to the twenty-sixth episode.
