Requiem From The Darkness (Kyogoku Natsuhiko Kosetsu Hyaku Monogatari, Hundred Stories) is a series of novels; these novels were adapted into an anime and a Live Action show. The anime especially is known for it's rather bizarre plot-lines and story elements; said story follows Momosuke as he travels around Feudal Japan in a search for one hundred ghost stories. But while doing this, he runs across a Ragtag Bunch of Misfits. They fight evil; well, kind of, anyway. Think Darker and Edgier Scooby-Doo. The series is also known for making lazy animation an artform, seriously they turn it into an advantage. Also has a page under Kyogoku Natsuhiko Kosetsu Hyaku Monogatari.
