Youzen Youkai Form


Youzen (楊戩 Yōzen?, Yang Jian) or the "Genius doushin" or genius priest was called upon by Geishitenson to aid Taikoubou, and is a disciple at Konronsan. The son of the leader of Kingoto, Tsutenkyoushu, and a youkai senin. He surpassed his teacher and has power equal to a senin, but because he does not want to take a student, remains one himself. His senin name is Kenseijiro Shinkun. He is a person of extreme confidence and takes great pride in his appearance. At first, he doubted Taikoubou's strength, and proposed a test. However, being a genius, Youzen wants to try out Taikoubou's ability to lead and so gives him 3 trials (only 1 in the anime). If Taikoubou passes, then Youzen will willingly become his subordinate, if not, then Youzen will become the person in charge of the Houshin Project. Of course, Taikoubou passes, finally approved of his means and became an ally. The major problem with Youzen is his pride, being brought up as a gentlemen with good looks and a genius at training, Youzen hates being defeated and he cannot stand being upstaged. Actually, he is a demon, son of Tsuotenkyushu that was traded away to Geishitenson many years ago. He denies his past as a demon because he is afraid of his demon self. But after meeting Taikoubou and co., he finally learned to accept his true form and his father. He has the ability to change into the body of any living thing, although his favorite transformation is that of Dakki. When transforming into a doshi or senin, he can use the other's paopei, but if they are a higher level, he cannot copy them perfectly. Because of his ability to transform without using paopei, even the Seninkai call him the genius disciple. Halfway through the series, he learns how to use a partial transformation and only change part of his body. This way, he can copy multiple of paopei at the same time. When he becomes hanyotai, his strength is increased. His own paopei are 'Sansento,' a giant fork-shaped weapon that can release a shock wave, and 'Kotenken' a paopei with the appearance of a dog which lives in his sleeve and can be called to attack enemies or used as a riding mount to fly. Towards the end, he obtained the cape super paopei 'Rikukonhan,' which wraps up enemies so that not even their soul escapes. After the final battle, he founded the new Seninkai.
