There is a tower that summons chosen people called “Regulars” with the promise of granting their deepest wishes. Whether it’s wealth, fame, authority, or something that tops them all, everything awaits those who rise to the top. Bam is a boy who has only known a dark cave, a dirty cloth and an unattainable light during all his life. Then, when a girl named Rachel approached him through the light, his entire world changed.
Becoming close friends with Rachel, he learned various things about the outside world from her. But when Rachel says that she must leave him to climb the Tower, her world shatters around her. Vowing to follow her no matter what it takes, she sets her sights on the tower and a miracle occurs. Thus begins the journey of Bam, a young man who was not chosen by the Tower, but rather opened its doors for himself. They call their species “Irregulars”, beings that have shaken the foundations of the Tower every time they set foot inside it.
