"I can't say I like the editor reviews up above. They don't even get the names of the characters right. I was a fan of Ronin Warriors years ago, and have been very pleased to see their material released on DVD! The series is about 5 individuals that possess the power to transform into mystical armor based off of different virtues of the human spirit.This release takes place in the tail end of the encounter with Sarenbou, the demon from the Nether Realm that attempted to take the inferno armor from a battle weary and weakened Ryo. Since the swords of wildfire couldn't stand the battle, Ryo is off to find what's called the swords of Fervor which were to be the natural companion to the white armor. However the price is great as a demon warlord named Sabrestrike has his own score to settle with the treachorous Talpa. The stakes are high - Sabrestrike wants the armor, Ryo wants the swords. Also you start to get into the next season of Ronin Warriors here with the splitting of the warriors... again.If you're a Ronin Warriors fan then I'd definitely recommend this. It's a good link in the series between season 1 and season two and really just sort of adds to the story. I believe Ronin Warriors was only supposed to last for one season but it was so successful, they wrote in the second season which ended up being mostly about the white armor. Knowing that, it's a little easier to see how there were some holes in the series that simply weren't explained. Still, I found this an enjoyable release and fun to watch."
