This manga is an adaptation of three out of nine collected supernatural stories that were published in Japan in the 18th century by Ueda Akinari. The most recent English translation of that collection was published in 2006 for those interested.
I was pretty disappointed with the art and the way the mangaka had adapted the stories. I haven't read the original collection myself, so I don't know if the mediocre quality of the plot of each story stems from that same collection.
For anybody who's read some of the Japanese folklore, the manga would feel very tedious to read because it carries similar themes found in some
famous Japanese myths. I would have loved it if the character's motives and acts were further explored and painted in a more humane way.
Sadly, the stories are only meant to terrify and even then, they don't deliver.
