▍Ketsugou Danshi: Elements with Emotions Trailer
Swallowing and decimating all things
Dark absolute emptiness “Dead Matter” plagues the Kingdom of Yuiwa
But there were those who dared to face it
Known as the Shikenkan, who possess the power of the periodic elements
In a desperate battle against the darkness that swallows everything
The Shikonin was bound by the bonds of fellowship
The “Ketsubunjutsu” that binds them to each other
An art of union to draw out even more power.
You, as a mediator, are the sole wielder of the art of union
The complete erosion of the entire globe. The disappearance of the world.
Only 50 days till the bell tolls…
