The immortal king has remained dormant for over 1000 years. In that time, humankind flourished but there are those who feel that humanity had become wicked and not worthy of the position they currently hold on the planet. they want to revive the king so that he may wipe the world clean and start over again.
The main group pursuing this goal are Nakaya clan. They scour the planet doing battle with beings of exceptional power in order to steal their Tamashi. Their soul. Once they’ve collected enough soul energy, they can transfer it to the ancient relic known as the Absxcess, which can then be used to resurrect the immortal king.
