Omukae Death


Official Website

From 9.00 p.m., Saturdays, 23 April 2016


Tsutsumi Madoka, who is majoring in science in university, hears of the death of Ogawa Chisato, his classmate from high school days, and goes to her wake. On the way home, he sees a queer scene of a person in a rabbit costume and an elderly man, Baba Yozo, having a scuffle. Madoka is completely skeptical of unscientific things and tries to walk pass while acting like everything is normal. Then, the rabbit calls out to him. The grim reaper Nabeshima is actually in the rabbit. He has taken a young girl Yuzuko. Nabeshima asks Madoka to help him with his work. However, Madoka assumes that he is hallucinating and ignores Nabeshima. When Madoka gets home, Nabeshima and Yuzuko are waiting for him. Madoka has had the ability to see ghosts and the grim reaper without even realising it. Nabeshima explains to Madoka that his job is to roam this earth and take ghosts to the other world. Madoka is followed around by Nabeshima and Yuzuko. When he walks with them, Aguma Sachi, who attends the same university, shows up. She possesses the ability to see ghosts and has been helping Nabeshima. Nabeshima unilaterally declares that Madoka and Sachi will team up from now on. She takes him with her and he ends up getting involved in the work. The target is Yozo whom Madoka had seen scuffling with Nabeshima. Yozo’s daughter Reiko intended to get married to her boyfriend Masamichi, but Yozo was strongly opposed to it. He said he would not be able to cut off his daughter even if he dies. Because Masamichi is a part-time worker, he is not someone that Yozo could entrust his daughter to without any worry. Furthermore, when Yozo heard that Reiko was pregnant, he was infuriated. Reiko resisted and the two of them lost contact. Shortly after that, Yozo suddenly collapsed and passed away. After hearing Yozo’s wish to force Reiko and Masamichi to separate, Sachi says she will visit Reiko’s house. And so, Madoka and Sachi go to meet Reiko … … Madoka and Sachi get along like oil and water because they cannot understand each other’s train of thoughts. Although they provoke each other, they make up for what the other lacks and start to learn something about living as they channel ghosts to the other world.
