what going on?


Located in the Shoryaku and Chotoku eras of Japan’s Heian period, the animated short Kai Doh Maru is set against the background of a capital under threat from disease, outlaws, and political plots. The story reworks themes from Japanese folklore, focusing on the relationship between Sakata no won fame as a (Kintarō) and Minamoto no Raikō, one of the first military Minamoto and “monster hunter” of folklore. The story that replaces the traditional image of Kintaro – a strong, ruddy-cheeked man that a certain mischievous little girl, while preserving the traditional character, as the realization of an axe. Other historical characters of the period who have also become objects of folklore, such as Fujiwara no michinaga and the rebel Taira no Masakado also make an appearance.
