As the years go by, he grows up, but what really changes his life is a mysterious meteoric crystal stone – the Meteoric Tear. This stone fuses with the young man’s body unnoticed, and he seems to undergo drastic transformations as a result. After that, everything is changed. Eventually, his father knows that the son for whom he hasn’t really shown a lot of consideration possesses astonishing abilities. And there’s a lot more to come.
Stellar Transformations Season 3 is originally titled Xingchen Bian: Xichen Yao Hai and will continue the journey of Qin Yu in the Immortal Realm and his imminent fight against the Nine Demon Hall.
