The horror anime REQUIEM FROM THE DARKNESS is notable for its unusual style of animation, designed to fit the moody atmosphere and themes of the series. In the 1860s, Japan is in turmoil. A would-be author of this feudal period, Momosuke is tired of writing children`s stories. Travelling the countryside in search of one hundred ghost stories that will comprise a book, he meets with three mysterious figures: a trickster, Mataichi; a beautiful puppeteer named Ogin; and Nagamimi, a bird caller. The trio move through the countryside dispensing karmic retribution on the truly evil. Each episode finds Momosuke and his strange friends dealing with a different horror inspired by traditional Japanese legends and folk stories. REQUIEM FROM THE DARKNESS - COMPLETE SERIES contains every episode from the series across four volumes.
