Synopsis: In the edge of perception, beyond the bounds of mortal existence, there is another world, a world of demons and other supernatural beings. Not all accept the prosperity of humankind, but from this world come protectors, known simply as Karas, raven-black shapeshifting warriors who follow ethereal spirits known as Yurine, and duel against those who would upset the balance of existence.

However, one Karas, Hoshunin Eko, decided to turn on his brethren, and together with demon-machines known as the Mikura, has decided that no amount of human sacrifice would be enough to bring his own kind of order to his domain, which conveniently enough, lay in the dense heart of humanity known as Shinjuku.

The old Karas is slain, and three years later, an enigmatic doctor named Otoha is chosen to topple Eko and restore what Shinjuku once was ... but will even help from the most unlikely of sources be enough for him to accomplish his important mission?

Snopsis: The Meiji Period (1868-1912) was a chaotic time for Japan, in which the old ideas of what it meant to be Japanese came face to face with the reality of the outside world. But for all that Japan was becoming a world of modern science and technology, humans still had to face the gods and monsters of yore.

Ichinomiya Kantarou grew up with a sixth sense for goblins, spirits, and demons, and sought the company of a "demon-eating goblin" to learn from, in order to protect those he cares for, and to prove that mankind and "monsters" can coexist, even in an everchanging world. By day, he is a novelist and folklorist, but by night, he and his unlikely retinue solve supernatural mysteries in the name of compassion (and maybe a little bit of spare cash to keep food on their plates).

Ayakashi:

Type: Series
Total Episodes: 11
Synopsis: This short series is separated into three different stories, all of them equally terrifying. This series is actually based on the book Toukaidou Yotsuya Kaidan by Tsuruya Nanboku. The book is a collection of ghost stories which was first published in 1826. Apparently the book tells the tales of one of the most famous ghost stories in Japan.

The first tale is titled Yotsuya Kaidan, which is about two men that conspire with each other to murder the men standing in the way of the women they wish to take as their wives. Once successfully slaying their obstacles, it turns out their rewards were not enough to satisfy. Tamiya Iemon, who killed his father-in-law in order to marry the family's daughter, later on poisons her because she stands in the way of a very profitable remarriage. The poison disfigures her hideously, and she commits suicide swearing revenge on her estranged lover.

Following this vignette is Tenshu Monogatari, which is about Tomihime, owner of the divine Shirasagi Castle, who falls in love with a falconer named Zushonosuke while he was travelling along the enchanted castle gates. The two try to deny their fates as human and goddess, and together must face their damnation.

Bakeneko is the final chapter of this series, which also takes place in the Edo Era. The untimely death of a young samurai bride sends the entire family up in a panic, and the village druggist swears it is the work of a bakeneko, or cat monster--which continues to kill off family member after family member before finally appearing before horrified villagers, revealing a long-forgotten scandal that tainted the family for generations to come...

One day, he comes across a doll. This doll, however, is no ordinary doll. It's the 5th Rozen Maiden Doll Shinku, and it comes into life when Jun gives it a couple of winds.

Shinku 'enslaves' Jun into becoming her "medium". Jun and Shinku soon come across Suigintou, another Rozen Maiden Doll who is determined to defeat Shinku in the "Alice Game" to become the ultimate "Alice". Shinku must fight through the obstacles coming against her and help Jun break out of his unstable life.[/b]
