    • Synopsis
    • Strangely, Buddha statues have been stolen one after another in Kyoto. Beniko is a high school student from a family that owns a temple. Their statue is also stolen, but what is worse, her parents are brutally murdered, leaving her alone. When her parents’ old friend Enju tells her that the perpetrators may be a robbery gang called Siddhartha, Beniko becomes vengeful. Without a place to stay, she enters Enjiru’s temple, and stumbling into Enju’s secret room, soon gets lost in a horrifying world of ugly half human/half Buddha creatures.
