Mixed Feelings
This was alright. A little slow, but enough to maybe get you interested in watching the TV series. Since this is a fighting show, you have to take it for what it is. The thing I probably like most about Shadow Skill is how the fights take place. I like the use of (Shinto?) card magic in this series, particularly the fact that they give little speeches of their abilities, almost as if they are actual partners. The special techniques (i.e. Shadow Skills) used are similarly interesting.

A very rough image of the world is painted and the conflicts and situations are certainly more involved/interesting. ...
