Synopsis

In this OVA, the story of Gau's history with his adopted sister and the secrets that make up the shadow skill unfold. The pair make their annual return to the gravesite of Gau's parents, where his growth and progress as a warrior can be exhibited for them. Gau has come along way in his training as a Sevalle under Elle's mentorship, but there are those who wish to find a way of eliminating them, just waiting for the right opportunity to mount a deadly attack. As the travellers make their journey, their family bonds and skill will be tested. Opponents are many, and battles are fierce, but Gau's training also entails taking on his sister in battle, and fully embracing the skills he must learn to defeat his ultimate opponent.

Unless you are a hardcore "Shadow Skill" or 'shonen fighting' fan, I have a hard time seeing how someone might enjoy this. It's not unforgivably terrible, but a lot of the elements in it are generally generic. It has all the classic fighting staples (such as learning more about others and oneself through fists rather than words) and it also possesses plenty of the exaggerated combat cliches one might be familiar with in this genre (such as destroying the surrounding landscape and gushing fountains of blood).

Unfortunately there are also disproportionate amounts of awkward exposition which don't lend themselves well to this kind of anime. Most read more

This is one of those fighting anime wich can go all directions, and although it can´t be compared to the serie´s that was electrifying and the movie, this went into a more toned down side on a more personal story. I saw it back in 1999 on a videotape together with the movie and enjoyed it somewhat.
Animationwise it still had the same look like the movie was, and the story was´nt bad at all , something different that all that constant fighting.It also shows the personal inside struggle of Gau ban and ELLe Ragu, 2 protagonists, like a person has in its everyday read more
