Synopsis

In Kyokutei Bakin's classic Japanese epic novel Nansou Satomi Hakkenden, eight samurai serve the Satomi clan during Japan's tumultuous Sengoku (Warring States) era.

In Fuse Gansaku: Satomi Hakkenden, the female hunter Hamaji comes to her brother in order to hunt Fuse. Thus, the karmic cycle of retribution that began long ago with the Satomi family begins anew.

Everybody knows that dogs are a man’s best friend, am I right?

They are cute, intelligent, affectionate, and loyal until the very end. Now what does that have to do with the movie Fuse: Memoirs of the Hunter Girl?

Fuse (pronounced “foo say”) is the story of an energetic hunter girl named Hamaji who moves from the mountains to the bustling city of Edo after the death of her grandfather. Hamaji is taken in by her older brother, who is also a hunter himself. Shortly after arriving, Hamaji is greeted with a rather gruesome site of bleeding dog’s heads put out on display for the entire town read more

Story: 9/10
(Read the actual plot on MAL for more info)

In this movie there are 'Fuse' part human, part dog creatures that eat the orbs from humans, when beheaded read more

Recommendations

Dramatic animes where the main female protagonists gradually fall in love with a masked white haired male, though not necessarily fully human. Both animes focus on a mythological aspect and the "forbidden love" of the female and male protagonists. Great art for both animes and great story plot of a bittersweet romance, though Hotarubi no Mori e pulls more on your heart strings, the similarity and uniqueness of these animes prove they are both a must watch.
Also based off the hakkenden novels. The eight half brothers who are now reincarnated in a different time are gathering together (in coincidence). Unlike this movie, the hakkenden anime series doesn't have as much romance--more friendship, family bond stuff.
