A long time back I had seen this anime in AXN. That time it used to be a craze for me, I never missed a single episode but then i couldn't get to see the ending of the series, which was rather disappointing. Well here is my second chance to see it again. Yes folks Animax, the anime channel of AXN has decided to air Flame of Recca from 8 May onwards at 6.p.m. So from now on you ppl know where I will be for the half hour after six, infront of my TV ofcourse. ;)
Here's the brief story:
The whole story revolves around a teenage kid named Recca. What's special about this guy? Well he was actually someone who was sent from the past 400 years ago when he was just a baby. Now that baby has grown into this fiery, witty, playful, overactive teenage kid who has a zeal for anything related to Ninja. Then one day Recca's mom Kagero appears, still young. She tell's him the story of his childhood and makes him realize that he is a ninja of a clan called The Hokage. She also helps in awakening his ultimate power of that being a flame master, ie. he can control fire. Then in the school he vows to be ninja for really beautiful girl called yanagi, whom he immediately falls in love with :)
Yanagi has a special power too, she can heal ppl by her touch. This power attracts the evil Kurei who has similar power as Recca, he too can control fire. Then after a deadly fight between Kurei and Recca, when Recca was almost defeated kagero tells Recca the true power of his flames. KARYU. KARYU can have many forms, depending upon the master. In Recca's case the RYU is nothing but eight dragons. The eight dragons are Saiha, Nadare, Madoka, Rui, Homura, Setsuna, Resshin, Kokuu. After this fight Kurei invites Recca and his friends Fuccko, Domon, Mikagami and Koganei(who is initially works under Kurei later joins Recca) to an event known as Ura Buto Satsujin which essentially is a deathmatch between various people who have special skills and powers. This is where the fun really begins during each match Recca gains powers and finally in the last match Recca fights against Kurei. So all you anime fans out there you better not miss this.
Once Again for the sake of clarity ;)
