''Otogi Zoshi'' is an {{anime}} produced by ProductionIG, which follows the story of Hikaru and a number of people surrounding her. While at first it may look to nothing more than HistoricalFiction with fantasy elements mixed in, that's only true of the first half. Halfway through, the series goes through a combination {{Timeskip}} / GenreShift to present day where strange UrbanLegends keep coming true. The two plots do overlap.

** MeaningfulName: Or the names are significant in other ways: The kanji in Mansairaku's name are the same as for Manzairaku, an ancient Japanese Bugaku court dance. As presented in the Heian Arc, Mansairaku is a Bugaku dancer. The difference in the translation ("sai" vs. "zai") may simply be a preference of the translator. [[spoiler:]]Manzairaku music and dance is associated with extremely long life, literally 10,000 years, which is also appropriate for this character.

** [[This is a rather broad hint about Mansairaku's true identity and a nod to Abe no Seimei's half-human nature. According to actual Japanese folklore about him, his mother was a kitsune (a supernatural fox). Hence, the red hair.]]
