In medieval Japan, the constant battles between rival warlords have left the land ravaged and prey to evil; the spirit world is ever-present. When the great warlord Shingen Takeda dies, one of his ninja, Maro, tries to escape from the clan, and his best friend, Hikage, is sent to hunt him down. 
 He comes to a village where people seem to have no memory of their earlier lives, and he falls in love with Aya, a woman he meets there; but he learns that it's really just a fattening ground for people who don't want to live because of past sadness.  
They are kept in a state of happy forgetfulness while being held as sacrificial food for a demonic giant spider that has drawn Maro into its coils. 
When he destroys the god and breaks the spell, his beloved Aya remembers her past sorrows and kills herself. The second part of the story,  
Maro's Evil Fang, released in 1989, reveals that the spider god was only part of a huge conspiracy to allow the Demon Kings of the Land and Sea to unite as one and unleash all the devils in the world on mankind.  
Through a ninja girl named Aya, who looks exactly like his dead love, and the ghost of Maro's beloved Kotone, Hikage learns that only by killing his friend can he prevent this evil, but Maro offers him the chance to become a Lord of Hell. 
After a final bloody battle, it seems that evil has been defeated; but on the road, Aya and Hikage take a baby from the arms of a dead woman and see that it looks exactly like Maro.  
Is evil simply reborn again and again? Based on an original story by Kei Kusunoki, creator of Ogre Slayer and Yagami's Family Troubles, this is an elegant and chilling story, much subtler than the blockbuster Urotsukidoji, with which it shares the rebirth-of-evil theory. V
