Description: Requiem from the Darkness

Bored with writing riddles for children, retired candlemaker Momosuke Yamaoka decides to set out into the countryside to pursue his dream, that of collecting and publishing 100 ghost stories. However, he finds more than he bargained for when he encounters Mataichi, a dwarven spiritualist, Ogin, a voluptuous spirit, and Namimimi, a shape shifter. The three are traveling as well – finding those who transgress against the gods and mankind and delivering punishment to them! Although at first intrigued by them, Momosuke soon finds horrors he didn't even bargain for – as well as questioning his own principles as he aids the three in their investigations!
