Adaptation of Takashi Noguchi's manga, which itself adapts Baku Yumemakura's supernatural romance novel. The original novel is about a 12th-century man named Minamoto no Yoshitsune (Kurou). Kurou flees into the mountains after losing to his brother Minamoto no Yoritomo, the first Shogun to rule all of Japan. History records that he committed suicide, but instead, Kurou meets a strange, beautiful woman named Kuromitsu in her mountain hermitage. Eventually, Kurou falls in love with Kuromitsu, but then realizes she conceals a dark secret. He learns that he is unable to die and continues to live for a thousand years as Japan evolves into a future society. (Source: ANN)

This isn’t for everyone, a very confusing anime with lots of gore, great 2D/3D fight scenes that offers tons of fun for non casuals.


Now this is what I call an artistic anime.


Crazy show. Very gory. Doesn’t make the most sense at times, but it has a nice tone and the action is cool to watch.


Did you ever see a picture where the more you look, the less you can make out what is actually in front of your eyes? That’s this show.


what in the actual fk ? this anime is blowing up your mind.. it is very confusing to watch and i was expecting logic at the end but.. LOOl..


Слитая задумка,с слишком быстрым повествованием,но анимация хорошая


I don’t even remember this one



    "We, who hurt each other so terribly, will sit here licking each other's wounds. We damaged goods will each seek the other out in comfort. If you are to die tomorrow, I'm fine with my life ending then as well. But if you want to live for me for one more day,I'll go on living with you today as well. And thus begins a tale of kindred, bound by their scars. Soaked in red and written in black, a story of blood. One of which I'll never speak. Our very own, precious as it is, story of scars. And I have no intention of reciting it to anyone."
