Rakshasa Street 镇魂街 is a 24-episode Chinese web series based on a manhua by Xu Chen 许辰 that was also adapted into an anime in 2016. It tells a story revolving around the Rakshasa or Requiet Street, a place where spirits and humans co-exist and it stars Jiro Wang (Meng Fei Jia Dao), An Yue Xi (lET’s Shake It), Neo Hou Minghao (Monkey King 3), Tang Guo Zhong, Huang Tian Qi, etc.
Cao Yan Bing is a general tasked with guarding the aforementioned street while Xia Ling is a young college graduate who accidentally stumbles upon a mystical battle between good and evil. It seems like a genre right up Jiro Wang’s alley due to the actor’s experiences heading up the KO One franchise. I’m one of those who liked the cheesy stylistics of KO One so I’ll probably love this too.
