Villgust is a peaceful world that exists parallel to ours. However, now an evil deity has been revived and has sent evil creatures to destroy many countries, which left darkness and terror to rule the world. The peoples' prayers and cries has reached out to the goddess Windina and in order to free the world from darkness she chose eight brave warriors to defeat the evil deity. Although blessed, these warriors are unaware at the path chosen for them, thus the two groups of Kui, Chris, Fanna, and Youta must meet up with Murobo, Remi, Ryuquir, and Bostov before they can follow the path chosen for them and defeat the evil deity.
First, the story may not seem very original, since it is a peaceful world where an evil entity wants to subjugate with your power. This may sound to many other anime (Yamato Takeru, for example, although the context is different, not only for the wicks but because the story into something different). The good thing about the story is that the goddess Windina chooses eight warriors without them knowing they are chosen by the goddess. I liked that point.
Some of the characters will get to know first as rivals and then another as buddies. This detail is also a fairly common detail but to concern of only two OVAs is not tiring as other anime as Dragon Ball, where this resource is abused.
But history is not created for look its plot. It created solely to entertain and it succeeds in spades. This anime is very entertaining and leave the desire to continue.
Another thing that makes these Ovas comfortable view is that the characters are very nice. Ryuquir is, without doubt, the most enjoyable of all, it shows a lot of spirit, excitement, fun, it is also very frolicsome and very strong. All those qualities that make a sort of female version and feline of the Monkey King (clarified it's just their way of being and does not mean that Ryuquir is based on this great character).
In compendium, is a very funny and entertaining OVAs with a very suitable character design and layout drawing very nice and appropriate.
