    Keishuu, China.

    The history books say that in the era of the Three Kingdoms, this land was a place of never-ending war. A young high school boy, Sonshin, who hates his city's history, is troubled by a certain dream. When he wakes up from the dream, strange things begin to happen one after another, and without understanding what's going on, he suddenly finds himself facing Gien, one of the generals from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, who's trying to kill him! Just before Gien's blade strikes home, a mysterious beautiful woman appears in front of Sonshin. What trials await Sonshin, as he witnesses this terrible battle between two generals of the Three Kingdoms?

    Episode 1

    Protect that card with your life.

    It starts out with some Chinese history as those generals are coming to life with those cards. Sonshin is studying history, which he absolutely loathes, and ends up getting involved in something big as he ends up with a card that he needs to hold onto no matter what, and right off the bat, his teacher is out to take it for himself. Thus a battle begins with Gien striking first, then the spirit within Sonshin's card, Shuuyu, comes out. Well, I wasn't expecting much out of this show, and that style of animation, while it feels right for this kind of show, is an eye sore. I'll keep on watching for the time being, at least until Sonshin gets out of this mess.

      She's strong, but not if he's weak.

      Sonshin manages to escape the library, but the teacher was one step ahead of him knowing that he would go get his cell phone in the teachers lounge, and then escape going up to the roof and using the emergency stairwell. Sonshin sure did get caught up in something big here, and he just wants a way out of this. There's a lot that hasn't been explained, but in any case things aren't looking good. Anyway, that held my interest long enough to continue for one more episode just to see Sonshin get out of this mess, but it's highly unlikely this will make the cut.

        Episode 3

        The kingdom shall rise again.

        So with Sonshin cornered and seemingly out of options that he decides to allow himself to be killed while learning the truth behind Soul Buster in that an emperor is using these cards hoping to resurrect his kingdom centuries later. But it was just a ruse as little did the teacher know that he was using the sun to power up Shuuyu's ultimate attack. So with that, the teacher is now just an ordinary person with no knowledge of the game, but another lord has come in to attack Sonshin.

        Well, that was rather anticlimatic seeing that I knew that Sonshin was setting up a trap there. Anyway, I wasn't planning to stick with this show after Sonshin defeated the teacher, so now that this has happened, that will be all for this show.
