It’s been 10 years since the first movie of the franchise came out (also Toda’s big screen’s debut)! I’ll be honest and say that I don’t remember 85% of the plot. I know there’s a book with power to kill anyone whose name is wriiten in it by the owner. And that Toda was raw and chubby at the time. That’s it. Lol.
