the story continued from its first movie, Rygart who fought for King Hodr tried to find a chance to talk to Zess, his old friend that happened to be leading the enemy's troop. he wanted Zess to lead the army back to their kingdom, while Zess wanted Rygart to convince Hodr to surrender. the negotiation failed n Zess' remaining troop continued to fight by following their orders. the political issues had gotten more serious compared to the last movie, the battles occasionally gory n surprisingly engaging. hesitation during war directly resulted in death. Rygart was forced to pick a side when his first mistake was to sympathize the enemy.
it was interesting, for unlike most heroes, Rygart was the only one who didn't possessed the ability to control crystals that was able to boost their strength. he was called an un-sorcerer. between friends, he was forced to pick a side. the incrementing battle ability of Rygarts n the intense heat of the battles between Golems was the spotlight of the movie. but despite all the serious confrontations, especially how they were to deal with the conflicting direction their adulthood had taken them, there were also occasional comedy that kept the series lighter. not to mention that the ending had me eager to know where the story will be heading!
