It's pretty well known as an anime that flopped towards the end, but my first anime was Magical Warfare. And my 7 year old ass firmly thought it was the best even after I watched twenty or so other anime.
Once I was a great invincible warrior. And no one dared to stand in my way. I travelled the lands searching for a worthy battle. Until I discovered the GATES OF SHADOW.
I broke the laws of the elders and opened the gates. THE DEMONS of the other World were beyond them, they rushed upon me tearing my flesh, draining my soul, turning me Into a SHADOW.
