Inspired by a Microsoft XBOX 360 video game of the same name, "Blue Dragon" is Japanese animation combining elements of mysticism, adventure, and fantasy combat. The show follows a timeless struggle between the forces of light and darkness. After costly warfare between the powers of good and evil, light and darkness, seven warriors possessing the power of Shadow managed to seal away the powers of darkness. However, many centuries later, an evil warlord known as Nene, ruler of the Grand Kingdom, marshals his forces in search of warriors still gifted with the power of Shadow and of a means to unseal the conquered darkness, unleashing worldwide chaos and allowing him to implement his own dark rule upon the world. Every year, Nene's forces appear over targeted villages in the guise of swirling purple clouds. From a concealed flying fortress within the clouds, Nene's forces attack and plunder villages in their pursuit of conquest. During one such encounter, the evil attackers encounter the character Shu, a rebellious young man determined to defend his home. During the struggle, Shu unleashes the power of Shadow, which allows the wielder to transform their shadow into powerful magical monsters. Shu's shadow monster takes the form of a blue dragon, one of the most powerful of all Shadow magic creatures. The blue dragon is too powerful for Shu to control, though, and he embarks on a quest to learn how to harness the power he's discovered in order to defeat the dark hordes of Nene. Soon, Shu is joined on his journey by other warriors of Shadow, who recognize Shu's goodness and potential and endeavor to help him in his learning and battle for light. Jiro and Kluke, whose minotaur and phoenix shadow creatures join the blue dragon, embark with Shu on an epic search for truth and victory to restore peace and balance to the world.
