Outline of Mo Dao Zu Shi（魔道祖師）!
The story is set in the world, similar to the ancient China.
In that world, the demons and the evils were threatening people. Those who get rid of such creatures that harm people were called the “trainees.” They belong to the different tribes and the discipline of the world were governed by the five tribes.
The main protagonist, Wei Wuxian（魏 無羨）, has lost his parents when little and has been living as an abandoned orphan.
However, he was picked up by someone from the tribe and now has been working as a “trainee”. He is a troublemaker, being cheerful, wild and free. Even though he’s not a hard worker when it comes to the training, he has an outstanding talent as a “trainee”. He is free, having his own program, but he is conscientious and manly at the same time so he never abandons anybody. He is too confident about himself, though……
Another main protagonist, Lan Wangji（藍忘機）, has been living separately with his parents since little and was raised and trained strictly by his uncle as a “trainee” so he is very excellent in beating the evils. He’s a well-conducted, polite and serious boy, not smiling too much.
Whenever he sees those in need, he always saves them, which makes people respect him.
These two meet and challenge the evils together as a “trainee” to but…… actually, Wei Wuxian（魏 無羨）has died once and revived, using a secret technique in the story.
It seems that they used to know with each other in the previous life and…… the relationship that was ruined due to the past death will be the key in the whole story……!
