YMMV / The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet

  • Complete Monster: Lord Abbot Enomoto: Not only does he have his monks impregnate the nuns at Mount Shiranui Shrine, he has them and Abbess Izu take their babies away, kill them, and has the monks deceive the nuns by writing 'letters' from their deceased children. If that wasn't enough, he deceives the nuns into thinking that they will be released from the shrine after 20 years of service. Instead, his master monks give them a drug that kills them on the way down the mountain and they end up buried in numbered graves. The reason for this? He's drinking the babies' blood as a tonic so he can remain immortal.
