Requiem From The Darkness

Show Summary

The setting is the end of the Edo period amid political strife and human suffering. Young Momosuke, an aspiring author, sets out on a journey to collect 100 stories to make into a book. Right away he meets up with a trio of outlaws: Mataichi the Trickster, Ogin the Puppeteer and Nagamimi the Bird Caller. As they travel, the group encounters the most twisted and horrible parts of human nature. It is the task of this group to punish each person in a manner fitting their crimes - a gruesome undertaking to say the least... Thus, the bells of the requiem are heard throughout the land... Opening Song: "The Flame" Closing Song: "The Moment Of Love" Synopsis: Near the end of the Edo Period, the son of wealthy merchants decides to turn his back on his family's profession and become an author instead. While he has done little but write children's riddles, he hits upon the idea of writing a collection of stories about the mysterious and the supernatural. One rainy night, a chance encounter with a monk and his strange associates on a mountain will pull the author into a world of darkness he can scarcely begin to imagine. He finds himself pulled along with a trio of people apparently dedicating to cleansing corruption from the land: Mataichi, a mysterious monk; Nagamimi, a hulking master of disguise; and the beautiful Ogin. Are the trio truly fighting corruption or are they perhaps servants of something much worse?moreless
