The new cassette from Banetoriko, “Sakasa no Kikori-men yori” is available!
This is based upon the short horror story on the website, “Sakasa no Kikorimen” (“The Inverse Mask of Woodman”). It is beautiful, scary and sad story.
This is the link for the story (in Japanese).
I would like to thank the author of the story for the generosity for permission to make music based on the story.

This yokai is from the legend the tanuki (Japanese raccoon dog) who fought with Japanese soldiers during the Russo-Japanese War in 1904/05. Guntai-tanuki wore red cloth with the letter, “喜” (joy) and was fearless.
