Let not an Outsider touch thee,
Lest thou shalt be cursed forever.

Once upon a time, in a land far away that was divided into two realms...
The Outside was roamed by teratomorphic creatures who had the power to curse whoever they touched. Humans could live safely only in the Inside. But when a lost little girl from the Inside named Shiva, and a demonic beast-looking Outsider simply known as "Teacher" initiate a quiet coexistence on the same side of the forest, their bond seems to transcend their incompatible natures. It is the beginning of a folktale about two outcasts -one human, one inhuman- who linger in the hazy twilight that separates night from day.

Totsukuni no Shoujo tells the tale of a young girl and her otherworldly guardian living amidst of a forlorn forest. At first glance, their life together is harmonious and their relationship heartwarming; on further inspection however, something seems off…

It is hard to shake the sense of eeriness arising from the black-and-white juxtaposition of the young girl and her guardian whose behaviour strikes one as rather odd: during the early sequences of their everyday life he seems to frantically avoid any form of physical contact with the girl, instead opting for workarounds that do not require touching her.

The origin of his peculiar behaviour is slowly unravelled read more

Now it might just be because I'm an avid follower of the manga that my score is the way it is, after all without prior knowledge of the series it's hard to glean anything totally solid from a 10 minute OVA.
Rather than being something to critique by itself, this short work of art proves itself to be the perfect advertisement for the enchanting manga of the same name, as it was the cover art of the manga that caught my eye to begin with.

There is, however, something to be said about the outstanding visual and audio directing put into this OVA; to be able to read more

A 10 minute exercise in clever storytelling using exclusively visual cues and a piano-based soundtrack. Totsukuni no Shoujo is an endearing tale about a guardian cursed with the inability to touch anything. The premise of this father-daughter relationship is a melancholic one further exemplified by the heavily dark color palette. This morose undercurrent also finds its way into its cinematography, with the little girls nightmare sequence and the experimental panic cut halfway through when the girl appears to have run away.

The depressing atmosphere is always juxtaposed with either soothing pastel colors, such as in the girl's dream sequence, or with a pure and joyous smile. read more

I can say is a very relaxing Ova the sounds and aesthetics are very sounding. It is like reading a moving manga those are all the sounds I imagine while reading one is very short for such a good deep story the fact he wants to protect her and can touch her it hits hard. Is the struggle of a parent and good VS evil type of situation very beautiful.
The story is telling is very spot on and without dialogue is very impressive how much it can actually say without using words. I love the scene at the end because throw out the ova black read more
