Eight hundred years have passed since the hero god Itaden locked away the evil and spared humankind from extinction in Idaten Deities in the Peaceful Generation. Peace has returned to the earth, and the struggle between Itaden and humanity’s foes has become little more than a legend. The demons awaken from their lengthy slumber to fight Itaden’s progeny, none of whom have ever engaged in a genuine war before, and an unrestrained three-way combat breaks out between the demons, the battle-gods, and the armies of humankind.
