Requiem From The DarknessWhile Discotek Media acquired the 2003 anime series Requiem from the Darkness, aka Kousetsu Hyaku Monogatari, back in 2015, TMS Entertainment has now brought it to Amazon for streaming for Prime members. It’s available for free streaming only to them with no purchase options available. It’s also showing just the dub for it. The show previously saw a bilingual release on DVD from Geneon Entertainment when it was first acquired last decade. Manga Entertainment was running the program at one point for on-demand side and had posted several clips from it back in 2013.

The series was directed by Hideki Tonokatsu while Shigeyuki Miya handled the character designs and served as the animation director. It was animated at TMS.

Plot Concept: The setting is the end of the Edo period amid political strife and human suffering. Young Momosuke, an aspiring author, sets out on a journey to collect 100 stories to make into a book. Right away he meets up with a trio of outlaws: Mataichi the Trickster, Ogin the Puppeteer and Nagamimi the Bird Caller.

As they travel, the group encounters the most twisted and horrible parts of human nature. It is the task of this group to punish each person in a manner fitting their crimes – a gruesome undertaking to say the least…

Thus, the bells of the requiem are heard throughout the land…
