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.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
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.
