From 12.12 a.m., Saturdays, 8 October 2016
Several hundred years after Yoshihiko defeated the dark spirit Deathtark in a fierce battle and saved the world, the world is once again plunged in darkness because of the devil king. Resurrected by the power of Buddha, Yoshihiko, Murasaki, Merebu and Danjo are told to defeat the devil king. The devil king has seven weak points which they must attack if they are to be able to succeed. Only destined people can go on offensive. The party of four set off on a new, dangerous journey around the world in search of these seven warriors with the pearls of destiny to bring down the devil king and return peace to the world. Guided by Buddha, they reach a village, but there are no signs of people. When Merebu calls out after finally spotting a human figure, the person’s face sends them fleeing hastily and they spend a night hiding in a small hut. Will they be able to save the world again?
