Mouryou no Hako (Box of Goblins) is a relatively obscure series revolving around boxes.

The year is 1952. Japan is still struggling to get back on its feet after its crushing defeat in World War II. The old folk beliefs are slowly being overshadowed by emerging modernization. And amidst the lonely hills and fields on the outskirts of Tokyo, boxes containing the severed arms and legs of unknown female victims keep turning up. A small private detective agency gets involved in the investigation, and along with them, a very different sort of detective, the coldly skeptical [[{{Onmyodo}} onmyouji]], Chuuzenji Akihiko.

Despite gorgeous animation courtesy of {{Madhouse}}, and a plot adapted from one of the finest supernatural mystery novels in recent years, this series is still sadly below many people's radars. Plenty of scares and [[{{BodyHorror}} body horror]] for all, in addition to long, deep discussions on philosophy, religion, biology, and the human condition.

* {{Bishounen}}: Enokizu Reijiro, the self-proclaimed "detective" who in the novel is often compared to a European procelain doll. Being roughly 30 years old, he's more Biseinen than Bishonen, but who cares?
