In the country-side of small-town Japan, Takashi Natsume is running from something. Out of breath and slightly panicked, he crashes through bushes to the main road and stops in front of two high-school boys. Out of breath, he asks casually if there's a holy place round. After confirming his route with the baffled boys, Takashi takes off again as if there's a bakemono (monster) after him.
This anime is a delight of the yokai (spirits), kami (gods), and monsters (bakemono) of Japan. With every moment, I had the feeling of a world filled with magic and wonder. The water colours of this anime put me in that lazy, summer-time mood were the sun is shinning, and anything is possible.
