In the world of Shonen anime, there are more than enough strong main characters to stand out that many new ones become muted in their shadow. Radiant doesn’t sound all that special when you read about its premise. “The world is overrun with monsters called Nemesis—and a young boy infected by them will stop at nothing to defeat them all!“. Sounds like your typical Shonen anime right? Wrong. Lets dive into what makes Radiant different. First, we will give you some background and a sneak preview.
Evil creatures called Nemeses fall from the skies and the only ones who can fight them are Wizards—infected ones who survived a Nemesis’s corruption. Seth, one of these survivors, vows not only to fight the Nemeses, but to find their mythical nest, Radiant, and destroy it!
Seth has big goals of defeating Nemeses, but first he must earn the trust of the very villagers he wants to protect—not an easy task when those who use magic are just as feared as the Nemeses they fight. Even worse, Seth can barely control his monstrous powers! It’ll take more than brute strength—although it’ll take that too—to get Seth’s quest out of the boonies and into the big time!
The limited-edition release of the second half of season 1 for Radiant includes a chipboard box that houses both parts of season 1. The box cover has the title character, Seth, on one side with the Radiant logo. The other side shows the Inquisition in the background with Seth and an unknown character standing back to back.
The set includes 13 episodes on 2 blu-ray discs and 2 DVDs. You also get a digital copy that you can download. As part of the limited-edition release, you also get an 80-page hardcover art book, 2 keychains and a set of art cards.
