223A-Samurai Legends: The Devil went down to Kyoto

223A-Samurai Legends: The Devil went down to Kyoto

Three connected stories of samurai from medieval Japan. On the first, Kintaro, a buff eight-year-old, discovers his destiny. On the second, Watanabe no Tsuna, a samurai warrior in his prime fights a demon that's been terrorizing a gate in Kyoto, and on the third he's recruited by Minamoto no Raiko to follow a magical floating skull to a dilapidated haunted house. All these lead into next week, when the heroes will come together to fight the greatest demon in Japan's history: Shuten-dōji. The creature is the aspidochelone! A napping turtle! Who might be the devil!
