Synopsis

One morning, two brothers living in a hut with their mother set out for the mountains to set traps for deer. They move silently through the forest undergrowth until suddenly a demon's arm reaches out from the treetops and grabs the younger brother. The older brother aims carefully, calms the shaking of his hands and lets an arrow fly, thus saving his brother's life. The demon's arm is left behind and somehow it looks familiar. After returning home a horrible truth is revealed.... Drawing on an early medieval Japanese legend, the film is reminiscent of the horror psychodrama Kwaidan. The Demon (1972) took awards at many animation festivals.

As with a lot of the anime i watch, i tend to discover them accidently. And often, i am pleasantly surprised, sometimes im not. Im glad to say that this was one of the pleasant accidents.

The Demon can't really be called anime, it's more stop motion animation than anytthing. It is very short (under 7 minutes long) but it tells a story that is succinct and pleasing at the same time.

The story is that of an old Japanese folk tale, which is animated beautifully. The models and scenery are wonderful. There is no dialog but the musical score tells the story better read more
