Episode XXXVII: The Birth of Evil, Part I

February 2, 2022

Long ago in distant space, a shapeshifting blob of darkness was comprised of unspeakable evil. But three all-powerful gods wielding magic weapons stepped forth to oppose it. Before the final blow was struck, they tore off a piece of the blob and flung it toward Earth, where the evil laid low. Now the citizens of Earth seek to save their planet and prevent the future that is Aku.
