Okay, so, when I was younger I saw Kakurenbo when it first aired on adult swim at night, and I was home alone. I changed the channel as soon as I saw Kimotori/ Liver Taker full frontal camera lunge at the kid with the glasses. Scared the shit outta me!
Now, years later, I have come to have a strange, fearful love for the movie and have come up with an idea for a little mini story. One that tells of how Oshira-sama/ the fox/ the fifth demon that possesses the next person who's "it" came to be with the demons. I have read two pages about what little info there is on him. One said that he was captured by the demons and forced to go bring kids to the town, another said simply that he was their leader.
My idea is that yes, he was captured, but it was his idea to go and use children as an energy source for the lights of the demon city, which in turn made the demons release him and name him their leader.
Im im probably gonna write this either way, but I felt like changing the journal so yeah.
