The bitter wind was hiding evil in the air
The sky is humming with the prophecy of doom
As darkness makes its way to overrule the Holy land
In the dark, from afar, we can hear him coming upon a steed
Set to take the swrod

Flying through the woods to defeat the evil soul forever

Slashing open darkness with his flaming sword
Since the day he took his oath to serve the land
Finally the time has come to
Show the evil closure to the final war
Once and for all

Song Production Information


That's right. Strike! It's a battle scene.
The warrior is the truth that G-san wanted,
yet what kind of figure is our villain on Earth?
Really, is Count Ten a friend or foe??

It should be noted, my laughing at the end for Warudoc is not here.
