Synopsis of the anime Ishura Light
Following the demise of the Demon King, a multitude of demigods, each more powerful than the next, inherited the world.
Among them: a master swordsman capable of eliminating his opponents with a single blow, a spearman as fast as lightning, a wyvern able to wield three legendary weapons at once, an all-powerful wizard endowed with the ability to give life to his own thoughts, or even an assassin, who is said to be able to kill instantly.
In order to determine which of them deserves to obtain the title of “true hero“, a great battle begins between these champions, who must each take up challenges against formidable opponents!
Between internal conflicts and bloody clashes at the dawn of a new era, the time has come to define who is truly the most powerful of fighters.
