Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi is a heartwarming story filled with endearing characters and delicious food. After the end of season 1, viewers eagerly await the next season of this hidden gem.
A Peek Into The Storyline
The story revolves around a college-going teenager, named Aoi, who can see spirits. After her mother abandoned her, Aoi’s grandfather taught her to live with her gift, which he shared, in peace.
The time came when Aoi’s grandfather passed away too. Aoi was left to look after herself. One day, Aoi came across a spirit which was hungry and decided to feed the spirit. However, an Ogre accompanied the spirit. He kidnapped Aoi and she ended up in the Hidden Realm. This is where all spirits lived. The name of the ogre was Odanna.
The ogre claimed that Shiro, Aoi’s grandfather owed Odanna a massive debt before his passing, and now, it was Aoi’s responsibility to pay it. He asked to marry Aoi, but Aoi managed to strike a deal with him and began working in his inn, in order to pay off her grandfather’s debt.
The show depicts Aoi’s life at Odanna’s hotel and the different spirits she comes across in her everyday life.
