Back Arrow Synopsis
Ringarindo is a land surrounded by a wall. The wall covers, protects, cultivates and nurtures this land. The wall is god… it is the foundation of this land of Ringarindo. One day, a mysterious boy named Back Arrow appears in the town of Essha on the outskirts of Ringarindo. Arrow lost the memory of him, but says that all he knows is: “I came from beyond the wall.” To restore the memories of him, Arrow heads beyond the wall, but is embroiled in a battle with himself as the stakes are high.
