At the Luo Tian Da Jiao festival (Japanese: Raten Taishou, a Taoism ritual ceremony in Taiwan where people pray through nine days for the country and its people) ‘Outsiders’ with special abilities gather. It is also an event where people fight as a journey to explore the truth! Chou Soran (Chinese: Zhang Chulan), the main character who was a common student before, teams up with Fu Houhou (Chinese: Feng Bao Bao) the holder of the secrets of eternal life, in order to fight various ‘Outsiders’. While fighting, the truth of Chou Soran’s clan and the mystery about his grandfather are gradually revealed.

Chou Soran (Zhang Chulan)

Voiced by: Atsushi Tamaru

He learned Kara Tian Shi Fu’s Jinguang Zhou (lit. ‘Golden Curse’) and Yang Wu Lei at a young age, which are just some of eight secret techniques of Kitaigen Ryuu. He becomes the successor of his clan. His grandfather was not allowed to use his ‘Outsider’ powers in front of people. Although he seems to be a bit simple at first glance, he’s got a sensible and thoughtful character. Soran finds out that his grandfather is from the Kitaigen Ryuuclan and in order to reveal all secrets about his grandfather and his powers, he decides to participate at the ‘Luo Tian Da Jiao’ festival.
