In the land of Kuruda, warriors with magical powers and incredible fighting skills battle for the ultimate prize: the title of Sevaar, the strongest warrior in the land. Elle Ragu, nicknamed Shadow Skill, is the newest Sevaar to emerge, but that doesn't make her life any easier. Teaching her "little brother," Gau, how to be a warrior, fending off assassins from other kingdoms and thwarting enemy invasions is hard enough, but her biggest challenge will be paying off her drinking debts.

I am invincible. My shadow skills are unmatched. The power of my blow has no equal. With these words Shadow Skill – Eigi enters the arena to determine whether it really is what it claims to be... An anime worth your time.

Story: 8

The story of Shadow Skill – Eigi takes place in the land of Kuruda, which is one of four lands that protect the Holy City of Julianess. (Each land has its own unique fighting style but only Kurudan is actually looked at beyond just name and one move.) Among the four, Kuruda is known for its long history of invincibility due to read more

They don't make them like they used too. This is a must see classic.

I haven't enjoyed an anmie like this for quite a while , its just a good old school butt kicking ,ass whopping heroic in the face of death and just plain funny type of anmie , that keeps you involved and rooting for your Heroes all the way through.

Story - yeah its a fantasy read more

Essentially, Shadow Skill is initially a unique anime which can make you laugh, feel inspired, and get connected with the characters all at the same time. But, it fails to carry through, as the ending is terrible. The well planned story from the beginning crumbles into a series of disconnected and haphazard series of screens (which are often overused). I don't want to shoot the series down completely, because honestly most of it was very enjoyable. Just be forewarned that you'll probably being tearing the hair out of your skull following the fight with Darkness.

ELECTRIFYING! thats what occured to me when i watched it back in 2000, and they don´t make them like it used to. Elle ragu is maybe one of anime most BADASS girls ever, by design,personality, and her non-girly behavior, as well some of other important chara througout the serie. The story in beginning looks like a small recapture of the movie at the tournament, some simmilair scene´s but better animation and further developing storyline.
It gets better and WAY darker as everything progresses, So is the art, it looks better than the epiloge or the movie, and u really can read more
