Short Peace

According to the onmyou writings...

When a furniture goes through a hundred years, they change and acquire a soul...

...Deceiving peoples minds.

It's said these are called tsukumogami ( From Tsukumogamiki )


I've sadly lost my way inside this rainstorm.

Please, I will like you to let me rest here until the rain stops.

What does this mean? Whats going on?

Here and there, throwaway

Here and there, throwaway

Broke, it's useless and disabled

Broken it's simply useless

Here and there, throwaway

Here and there, throwaway

Some fine umbrellas are these!

I'll borrow one!

I'm going home!

I'm going home! I'm going home!

Am I pretty?


Pretty... every one said...


The taste of people change in any moment...

What is out of fashion is thrown in the drawer and never used.


Am I Pretty?

What a soft feeling!

Although it's a little worn out

It's ok!

I'll borrow them!


I'm just a traveler passing by.

Lost my way under the rain.

It's seems I entered your house without permission.

I'm sorry.

Will you let me go out soon?

That's a very nasty smell.

Even here it's all battered.

Up to be thrown in the dump indeed.

But, before that...

I won't forget...

Before becoming useless, were wonderfully useful to people...

Good work.

Hinoyoujin ( Beware of Fire )

Japan Edo Era (1603-1868)

This is the story of Yaoya Oshichi ( ca. 1667 29 March 1683 )

O-ume? There's nothing I can help you yet?

I'm sorry Princess, I'll be back as soon as I drop this.






O-ume you are not quite good. Right?

I'll go see.




Where's the fire?

There's anyone on the rooftop?

I'm on my way.

It's in the Honjo district. You know?

Also the wind comes from the northwest. Don't worry.


The son of the neighbor! Isn't he?!

The love of Matsuki-san for fire will give him trouble. Right?

Matsuki! Where did he go?

Told you to keep an eye on him if the fire bell was heard.

Where did the keeper go?

Send people to the fire chief place. Tell him I said not to let him in to the place of fire.

It took a lot of dealing. You heard it?

Dear, will you talk about that again?

It's because Naritaya-san has a reputation of being meticulous. Right?

Even that is a fanatic of arrangements.

Well, O-wakama introduce yourself.

My name is Wakama.

She's being taught to act normal in a general way, bur...

It's because she dont know the meaning of '' hard work ''

O-Waka -chan!


Son of a b*tch!

'' This body of mine have I received for my parents...

..And to keep it safe from harm is my first filial duty...''

Don't you know? Matsukichi!

You are not just some clerk sitting on a reception to have irezumi.

You are disinherited!



What happened?

I've just been said by my father that I'm disinherited.


Matsuki-san... You are his only son. Aren't you?

It doesn't matter.

I was being forced to...

From now on, finally I'll become a firefighter.

You were like this since you were a child. Matsuki-san.

But... if that happens... I...

I want to see you Matsuki-san. I want to see you as soon as possible.

Don't worry.

I'll come to see you.


Did you forget it?

What about?

The promise we made when we were children.

When we were children?


When we were children.
