Lord Daigo.

Lord Daigo!

You must tend to your wounds first.

No need.

I hear the samurai who carved

these demon statues...

Died in a frenzied death soon after.

How many are there?

There are forty-eight.

This is a fitting place for me to

face my darkest destiny.

Chief priest.

I will be borrowing this

place for one night.

I will be praying for the holy light to protect you,

lord Kagemitsu.


Father died in the war.

My older and younger brother too...

They lost their lives in the war against Kanayama.

At this rate, we will be obliterated

by Kanayama,

and our Daigo family's bloodline will...

Come to an end!

For that foolish warlord!

I swear...

to slay Kanayama with my own hands!

Those who reside in the darkness!

What is it you want?

Do you want to come to life?

Or a living sacrifice?

What do you want?

I will give you whatever you want.

In exchange,

Give me, Daigo Kagemitsu,

the power to defeat my sworn enemy!


Power to rule the world.

Give me the world!

Body of...





You demon!

It is true my wife will give

birth to a baby soon.

Are you telling me to hand him over to you?


The world...

Will be given to me?



Then I shall give him to you.

My son's...

Share them among yourselves!

Show me a sign of your promise!

Lord Daigo!

Lord Daigo!

Have you joined forces with demons?

You will regret it,

lord Kagemitsu.

I will never regret it!

Come on, pick me!

Don't you want to have a good time?

Hey there, do you want me to read your palm?

I get it right very often.

No, thanks.

I'm really good.

- No, thanks!

Want me to read your palm?

Get out of my way.

Is something causing you distress?

- Shut up!

Want me to read your palm? Palm reading.

My bad, my bad.

Sir... Palm reading?

How about it? I'll find out the

source of your distress.

If what I find out is true...

Excuse me, let's see...

What the hell is this?

Hey, you!

It's not safe here, run!

It's gone!

Mine's gone too!

Have you been dead for a long time already?

Hey, where do you think you are going?

Run, run!


Did you see him?

- No.

Find him!

I knew you would be here!

Give it back, you thief!

It's not time to be arguing

about that, you idiot!

You are... Red Rust Mountain's...

Wha... What the hell is that?!

How am I supposed to know!

Wait, please wait!

Stop messing around, I'll kill you!

What... What exactly are you?!

What do I... Look like?

To you...


Do I... Look like?

Hey, you said something about

Red Rust Mountain earlier?

A man-eating monster inhabited a mine

called the Red Rust Mountain.

A person went up the mountain

and came back alive, but...

Rumor has it that person

himself is like a monster.


I told you, it's just a rumor I heard!

If you don't know, then you are

of no more use to me!

Monster? Monster? You are saying

it was a monster?

So, it's you, Hyakki-maru?

Your presence has not changed at all.

How have you been?

I will have to borrow this

a little while longer.

Ha! It's nothing you need to borrow,

it is yours.

Use it whatever way you wish.

If that's your reason for living.

You know nothing about me!

Hey, old man! You look bored.

- Huh?

Are you going to introduce me someone

nice to drink with me?

Shut up, if I got you a girl, you would

drink the whole thing!

Say, what was that guy?

Is he one your buddies?

No, I've just come across him twice before.

What the heck is he anyway?

Is he a human? A monster?

What did he look like to you?


Man, that bastard...

Long time ago, in a place...
