Back arrow synopsis

The world of Lingalind is surrounded by a mystical wall, the boundaries of which seem to be nothing. Revered as Mother of Earth, the wall delivers heavenly gift capsules called "Rakuho" to locations across the continent. The capsules, which arrive once a month, contain metal bracelets that allow the user to transform themselves into a mechanical being known as a “briheight”. As a result, Lingalind is plunged into constant confusion by its warring nations. All hope to strengthen their military skills by acquiring the offerings for themselves. One day a rakuho lands in the field with an unexpected resident, a mysterious man with black hair. All eyes are on this strange newcomer who calls himself the "back arrow" when claiming to have come from beyond the wall, a revelation that can potentially unravel Lingalind's entire dogmatic basis.
