Battle Arena Toshinden (闘神伝 Toushinden?) is a two-part original video animation based on the video game series of the same name.


For one year, Master Swordsman Eiji Shinjo has been haunted by the memory of his battle with the renegade champion, Gaia; a battle that was cut short by the forces of the malevolent syndicate known as "The Organization". Denied victory, Eiji left the tournament followed by his opponent's mocking laughter. Worse still, Eiji walked away no closer to finding his long-lost brother, Sho.

But now, a mysterious warrior is hunting down the champions of the previous tournament and using their own moves against them.

Who is this powerful new foe and who will be his next target? Eiji and Kayin Amoh; his closest friend and greatest rival attempt to unravel the mystery before they too join the ranks of the defeated. Their answer lies at the heart of the Organization and its plans. At last, the ultimate battle between the greatest fighters in the world may be decided.
