This is an interesting license. I own "Shadow Skill: The Movie" VHS and it's one of those movies where we are thrown into a story with no beginning and (if I can remember correctly) no end. I wasn't overly impressed, but it has an attractive look and the name has always stuck with me.

Considering their financial position though, I'm not sure if this is something ADV should be licensing. But then, action series always seem to do well, regardless of age.
About time someone licensed this! :D

I enjoyed the OVA of Shadow Skill with it's blend of unique fighting styles and excellent animation (at the time!).

Can't wait to see what the series brings out from the characters! Hopefully some character development! :wink:
