Miura Kyoji, a dedicated kendo student, discovers that his shisho (master) Tate Masanari is a reincarnated Incan warrior named Yawaru who wishes to destroy the world to purify it. Kyoji himself is the warrior Bilka, who foiled Yawaru's plans in their previous lives. Yawaru gathers other awakened spirits to release the powers of nature. Now Kyoji must wrestle with his own fate and decide if he is merely a vessel for the reincarnated soul or if he is truly Miura Kyoji and which will be better able to save the world and the future as he knows it.

What makes this absolutely silly is just how many reincarnated Incan warriors can be found in the ...

Mixed Feelings
I have never really felt compelled to write a review of an anime. Then I watched Nazca. I came upon this show most likely the way that most people have. “What’s that anime featured in the Malcolm in the Middle intro?”

I didn’t expect anything more than either an average show or possibly a complete mess that would make for a good laugh. I just wanted to watch this just to watch it.
