( Title song: 8-Hit)
Episode 1: Hikari and Kurai, The Samurai of the Ying Yang!
(Setting: A japanese village)
(We see Hikari with his Wife and Child. We only hear Ryu’s narration.)
Ryu: The warriors life starts out with happiness and joy. With every high, there is a low.
( The scene fades, we see the phrase “ 5 years later”, we see Hikari in an abandoned temple, We see him tossing and turning in bed, fade into his dream, we see his house on fire, we also see a dark figure in the flames)
(Hikari wakes with a fright, he gets back onto his feet and begins to walk out of the temple)
( Hikari is walking down a street, masked , to be confronted by a thief and his gang.)
Thief 1: You are going to listen to us or you will die, remove your mask!
(Hikari removes his mask.)
Thief 1: Oh lookie here! If it isn’t the lonely samurai.
Thief 2: Hey, at least your wife is having fun with demons in hell!
( A bamboo bo staff knocks both of them out. Ryu appears)
Hikari: Who are you?
Ryu: A man who will help you.
Hikari: Look, I don’t need any help.
Ryu: Hikari, you have lost your way of honor, you have a duty to fulfill.
Hikari: How do you know my name? What duty?
Ryu: The duty of your ancestor.
Hikari: Look! My father died in the war, You know nothing. (Hikari draws his sword)
Ryu: Listen, I will -
(Hikari draws his sword completely) Hikari: Look, go away old man.
Ryu: I can take you to that day. Just join me.
(Hikari looks confused, then lowers his sword)
Hikari: Look, just leave me alone.
(Hikari walks away, enters a small house)
Hikari: Sister, I am home!
(We see his little sister,Suke, run over and hug him)
(Hikari hugs back)
Hikari: How are you doing?
Suke: Great! I went to the market today. And…
(Hikari’s emotion goes from happy to frightened)
Hikari: What?!?! Are you ok? Are you hurt?
(Suke looks frustrated)
Suke: Brother! It’s OK! Nobody wanted to hurt me.
Hikari: Look, you are the only other family that I have. I can’t risk you dying.
Suke: Well we have to take risks.
Hikari: Listen, not with you. I told you to stay here!
Hikari: No! Go to your bed!
(Suke frustratedly runs to her room)
Suke: At least our parents were kind, I’d rather be with them!
(Hikari looks stressed)
Hikari: Why can’t she understand that I am only trying to keep her safe. I love her, but she acts like I am a enemy, a manipulator, a unfair leader. I will talk to her tomorrow. Till then, I have to rest.
(Hikari walks to his room, sits down and goes to sleep, we see the text “The Next Morning”, and we see Hikari, in battle armor, bruised, the village in ashes and ruins)
(looks around, gets up and raises his sword)
(Hikari looks around, then picks up a weird sword)
Hikari: This sword is foreign...SUKE!!!
(He looks around scared, then he runs around the village, looking for Suke, we see more ruins, and still bodies all around.)
Hikari: What caused this?
(Later Hikari find his home)
(He rushes in looks around, then he walks into her room)
Hikari: …….No. No,no,no,no! Suke!
(We see her still body, Hikari holds her)
Hikari: no. I have failed
(He cries for a bit, suddenly, we hear a crash outside)
(He picks up his sword and charges outside, there are black, demonic looking creatures all around)
Hikari: You killed her.
(He and the creatures fight and he is on his last knee but has defeated all of them)
???: *in a echo-y voice* The brighter the light, the greater the shadow.
(Hikari passes out, is in a vision, the village is back, but it is night)
Villager: Someone stop him!
(Hikari runs towards the center of town, then two people pass through him)
???: Stay back! I don’t know what is happening! ARGHH!
(Hikari rushes to the sound of the voice, only to see a group of people, he charges through them and sees himself, with his sword through yuki, with a shadow entering him)
Villager: Why Hikari?
???: I am no longer Hikari. (The vision hikari turns into a shadow, making way for a Man in dark skeleton armor with a claymore)
???: I am Waru Ryu, the Warlord of Shadow. And this village is mine.
(A large group of shadows charge out and attack the villagers, Waru seperates from Hikari in the vision, Hikari watches him fall to the ground, suddenly Hikari finds himself in a dark area with only a circle of light from an unseen source)
Hikari: I-I killed her…
???: We killed her…
(Hikari turns only to see a dark figure)
???: We were controlled, but now we are two halves.
Hikari: No. (He draws his sword, suddenly, he finds himself back in the village)
Waru: About time you wake up.
(Hikari turns stares for a sec, then charges at Waru with sheer anger, they spare for a bit, then Waru punches through Hikari’s chest)
Hikari: AAAARGH!!! *screams in agony*
Waru: Wake up your dark side so you can join me.
???: *in Hikari’s mind* Keep fighting back!!!
(Then Waru is sent flying, we see Ryu Hoshi, with a bo staff)
Ryu: Begone! You don’t belong in this world and time!
Waru: Hmph. You don’t know yet, but this is the beginning of the end.
(A shadowy archway appears behind Waru, he walks in)
Ryu: Hikari, how are you holding up? ….Hikari?
(We see a dark armored, scarred samurai behind Ryu)
???: I am not Hikari...I am Kurai, his opposite self.
(Ryu points the staff at Kurai’s head)
Ryu: Where is Hikari?
Kurai: I am Hikari, just a different form of him.
Ryu: Don’t try to fool me!
(Ryu fights Kurai, which ends quickly as Kurai slices through the staff)
Kurai: Listen, I don’t work for Waru. I am Hikari, just his other half.
Ryu: ...the ying yang warrior!
(Ryu points at Kurai’s katana, which has a crystal in it, it looks like an unbalenced ying yang)
Kurai: Hmph. I don’t know much about it.
(Kurai suddenly screams in agony)
Ryu: What’s wron-
(We see the ying yang go from mostly black to mostly white, Kurai then turns into Hikari)
Hikari: NO! My family! It can’t be true!
(Hikari doubles over on the ground, cries)
Kurai *In Hikari’s mind*: I am sorry.
Hikari: ...What’s your name, elder?
Ryu: Ryu Hoshi.
(Hikari gets up)
Hikari: What do you want?
Ryu: I am making a team, and Waru is one of the people trying to destroy what we protect.
Hikari: What is that?
Ryu: Follow me.
(A golden portal opens)
Hikari: *looks back at the village* Gimme a second.
(Hikari goes back, he comes back with his sister, he then makes a bed of flowers, he places his sister in them)
Hikari: I wish I had been able to stop him.
Kurai: Imma Kill him
Kurai: Waru. He made me evil, without your light. I am going to return a favor.
Hikari: ...I guess.
(Hikari gets up)
Hikari: I am ready to go.
(Ryu and Hikari walk through the portal)
Ryu (In Narration): To this day, Hikari is trying to balance, he still has to learn to work with himself, but Hikari and Kurai are the most powerful powers, the ying yang samurai…
