Shining Wind is a PS2 game, released in 2007. It is part of the Shining Series, and the sequel to Shining Tears. It has an anime based on it called Shining Tears X Wind, which basically shows another part of the story. Like Shining Tears, the art is done by Tony Taka.
Shining Wind provides an example of:
- Miko: Touma is a miko at her family's shrine, which is part of why she has skill at spells.
- Perspective Flip: Kiriya is the protagonist of the game, while Souma is the protagonist of the anime.
- Shining Goodness: As a Shining Series game, the adjective "Shining" is meant to represent the heroes and their ability to cast away darkness.
- World of Badass: Many, but one standout is Rouen, a pirate king of a Chinese-inspired town who went AWOL to investigate the happenings on the world. He's also voiced by Tetsu Inada so that makes him more badass.
