Hiya guys, today I want to ask if you guys know of an anime I have watched years ago. Dunno if it was here on the site, or offsite or something. Also, apologies if this topic isn't supposed to be on this specific fourm.

I can't remember the name, and its been driving me mad trying to find this anime for over a year now.

From what I remember of the anime, it was an action anime. The premise behind it is a bit foggy but I will try to list as many details as I can:

1) There were at least 2 main characters. I now they were bound in some way, like there was a symbol on the guys hand or something. It might have been something else entirely, but I know there was something physically binding them.

2) This symbol (or equivalent) , while activated, would allow the female character to gain some sort of edge in combat, to what extent, I cannot remember, its probably been a decade since I saw it.

3) While this symbol (or equivalent) was able to give the female character a much needed power-up, I distinctly remembering that somewhere near the beginning of the anime (probably within the first 5 episodes) it was explained by another person in the same situation that using the symbol drains the male's life force. The character explaining this was very old, or appeared to be. He had since stopped using the ability to live a bit longer. He actually lived with the person he was bound to. (I'm not even sure if they are bond in the traditional sense, I am more trying to say they are intertwined)

4) I know that the main character guy decides that using the power too much was a bad idea, but he was continually put in situations where he was forced to unleash the power

5) Eventually they use it too much and the main character "dies" but is somehow still alive because now he has the symbol on both his hands so his life force is shared with the girl? Making them a lot more powerful in the process?

6) Shortly after this, something comes out of the ocean, which sets the stage for the ending of the anime. It was like, maybe a giant tree? Or a mountain? Or a tower?

7) I distinctly remember 2 battles, maybe a third. The ones I KNOW happened was the battle on top of said giant thing coming out of the ocean. And another much earlier on in the anime on an island. I remember that one being really epic.

This is all I can remember right now of the anime. If anyone wants to to a crack at trying to figure out what anime it is, reply to the topic or message me in my CR inbox. Thanks for listening!

Definitely not Fate.
Also it might be Black God?
I wanna get a few suggestions before I can confirm it.

There are some others but they seem to have different ways. You said symbol so.

Probably Kurokami (also known as Black God which AnimeKami has already mentioned.)

It used to be on crunchyroll but it was removed along with a bunch of other series when the Bandai contract expired.

edit: after a quick google search it looks like sentai filmworks got the rights to the title in 2013 but they have yet to release it in either streaming format or any physical releases. It was very sad when BANDAI closed but they did print blu-ray and dvd sets before they closed back in 2010 which you may be able to hunt down.

We do have a special forum just for questions like this, so I've moved this thread over there. It's the  Advice, Info, Recommendations forum. (It's located under the "Crunchy Connections" section of the main forum page.)

Thanks mod!

Also thanks everybody! Looked up the plot and this seems like right anime! Was actually surprised how fast I got a correct response, I thought this one might have been obscure, lol.
