When schoolgirl Takiko Okuda attempts to destroy her fatherâ€™s translation of "The Universe of the Four Gods," she is instead literally sucked into the story, becoming the Priestess of Genbu in an epic journey to find the seven Celestial Warriors!
In her first encounter, she meets the mysterious outlaw Rimudo, one of the Celestial Warriors with a tattoo of the Chinese character for "woman" on his chest. It turns out that itâ€™s there for a good reason: Rimudo can not only summon the wind as one of his special powers, but he can also transform into a woman!
Takiko meets up with the bowman, Chamuka, who is hunting Rimudo. Chamuka also thinks Takiko is an outlaw, but they eventually become traveling companions, for it seems Chamuka is a one of the seven Celestial Warriors as well...
