This is mainly about 6 friends and their shadows: Shuu, Zola, Kluke, Maromaro, Jiro, and Bouquet. As Shu’s village was being attacked by an unknown enemy, he and his friends, Jiro and Kluke decide to defend their home. They soon meet warrior Zola and receive the powers of Shadow, an ability that let’s them transform their shadow into a powerful monster. Shu receives one of the most powerful monsters, Blue Dragon, and they all set out to defeat their enemy.
The anime adaptation is directed by Yukihiro Matsushita, animated by Studio Pierrot and co-produced by SKY Perfect Wellthink, TV Tokyo and Pierrot. The anime features a different vocal cast than that used for the game. It also ignored most of the game’s plot.
