    • Synopsis
    • A remote, secluded village is lorded over by Kamihaeri, a powerful mystic. But when Kamihaeri dies, the village holds a “psychic battle royale” according to ancient custom, gathering psychics from across Japan and pitting them against one another in a death match in order to find a replacement. Hoping to win the lucrative treasure promised to the victor, self-proclaimed “superstar” magician Naoko Yamada participates, while Jiro Ueda reluctantly tags along to try and stop this foolish tradition. Together, they become embroiled in a terrifying—yet absurd—battle. What fate awaits our intrepid heroes?
