I am completely sure that I watched this anime before 2006, and I'm quite sure that I watched it before 2003, probably around 2000. Those were strange days when the cable TV showed amines and movies that you can find now (almost).
I'm not sure which country the anime is from, but the warrior did look somewhat like a samurai.
I watched at least 3 episodes, and in each episode, the warrior found an object which gave him a new ability.
- In the first episode, he got a sword after defeating a boss (something that looked like Jabba the Hutt from Star Wars, but motorized like a rocker). He gained the ability to change his size and became big. He also found a girl in the first episode.
- In the second episode, I remember them walking in some woods and some people were tailing them. After that, they met the second boss and he defeated him. Both became big in size as they were fighting. The boss had a yellow armor and he had a spear (?). The warrior received a mirror after defeating the 2nd boss.
- In the third episode, I vividly remember some of his friends escaping around the end of the episode. The guy was in Egypt and 2 sphinxes started to move and fight him, but he and the girl started to sink in quicksand, and that's the end of the episode. In this episode, they were supposed to acquire the crystal sphere.
It would be great if someone can help with name, year, country or anything.
