A strange environmental phenomenon 22 years ago in the Kanazawa prefecture caused the land to split and protrude upwards reaching unprecedented heights, creating the secluded area known as The Lost Ground. Kazuma is a young mercenary who lives in the Lost Ground, looking for any work he can find to sustain his livelihood within the harsh environment. He is one of the few people that are gifted with the Alter ability, which allows him to plaster his right arm and torso with a metallic alloy. When this mercenary encounters HOLY, an order whose purpose is to suppress and capture what they call Native Alter Users, and one of the elite members of HOLY, Ryuho, an epic rivalry begins.

A really fun battle shonen with a memorable cast. Is very quotable and the finale of the show is pure fanservice in the best way possible.


Hype OP. Hidden gym.


God I remember feeling so devious when I would stay up to watch this show late at night on Adult Swim. Give it a watch. Simple but fun

I don’t see people mention this much but I actually enjoyed it.


May not be everyone’s favorite, but definitely worth a watch


s.CRY.ed reminded me why I love anime. Over-the-top drama, bad-ass characters, zany super powers, the works.


Cool show with decent fight scenes and progression of events. Wasn’t terribly memorable but OP was good. Things happened but hard to care


    Holy Divine

    Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
