Storyline

Soma, the son of a great hero who banished yin from the world in the previous war, is now chosen by the great sword of yang. At first, the spirit of the sword will overwhelm his body to protect him from the darkness of Yin. Unless Soma gets stronger, he will consummate his own life. Evidently, the sword is not complete. He must travel the very world to find the missing pieces of the sword's power. In the process he will get strong enough to command Yang's power. Along the way, he meets Arumi, the Heavenly Princess with an equally sacred dagger, Ryuhai, a childhood friend whom is also a ninja and Tanh, a member of a shadow-less clan wanting to retrieve back his clan's treasure.

One of the best Korean Animes I have ever seen!
1 July 2000 | by (Meditating on Kotodama Yama....) – See all my reviews

Hey,"Soma:Warrior's Saga) is one of the most well done Korean animes I've seen.The storyline is top knoch,and 96% of the storyline is ORIGINAL (unlike most modern-day Anime ~-~).Actually a mixure of J.R.R Tolkien and dark-natured Hong Kong fantasy films.

The characters are equally intresting as the plot,from a shadowless man,an albino mage with talking, enlighted daggers (don't worry,daggers don't sing!)to the dark,semi handsome/semi-ugly villains, whom are extremely evil,unlike those moronic "Sailor Moon" or "Pok&ecircmon" villains,whom are more stupid than vile.

The soundtrack is well-done in alot of scenes,even though sometimes it can sound a bit sweetsy on the flashback sequences.

Voice acting is nice.The voices matches the characters perfectly!Favorite voice actress is Mayu Loh (Ryuhai,Ninja Woman).

Animation is not bad,even though rather choppy in some scenes.Drawings are well-done.Yong Su Hwang and Tetsuya Nomura are the perfect match!Oh,and speaking of,this and FF7 were Nomura's better works (unlike alot of stuff he does now!).

Overall,watch this or get the Manwha (Korean Manga).
