Release date: 2008
This is another anime series and it is going to be a difficult one to explain without blowing the plot completely. Despite being 2008 I had the feeling of an older animation in the style and I assume there was a deliberate retro feeling to the animation.
Every episode begins with a Noh Play scene, from episode two this serves as a recap of the previous episode and is intercut with scenes from the previous episode. This is not simply an affectation, however, and the Noh Play appears within the final episode.
Benkei spots the light of a home in the forest and they head towards it, finding a house. Inside they meet a woman, Kuromitsu (Park Romi), who offers them shelter but they must not go to the room behind the house or peek inside. They agree but Kuro is feverish and stumbles. Though Benkei is using Kuro’s name and pretending to be the master – to protect Kuro – Kuromitsu can see through the ruse due to Kuro’s noble demeanour.
