The four Ryudo brothers hold an ancient secret - they are descended from the dragons. They have the speed, strength and power of their legendary ancestors - and they're getting stronger. But when pushed to the limit, they become the terrifying, uncontrollable dragons of mythology. These powers have attracted the attention of some powerful enemies - shadowy organizations with unlimited resources and weapons who will stop at nothing to control the brothers.

This anime is criminally underrated. More often than not, getting anime recommendations by googling names off random people characters on a Japanese game is so much more useful than asking the MAL community. Hey look, you'd think because this was also done by the guy that did LOGH more people would've seen it. WOw

I have heard of the 東方青龍 南方紅龍 西方白龍 北方黑龍, but greatly done in this anime (watch Sub)
Anyways Ryudo Hajime and Ryudo Tsuzuku are damn epic and badass. See Hajime and Tsuzuku 10/10

I recommend Black Jack OVA and Petshop of Horrors for more amazing 90s atmosphere and characters like Souryuuden. For more modern ...
