Utsuho’s truthfulness as a child resulted in an enormous catastrophe, and he decided to lie from that day forward. Raised in a village of orphans by a monk, Utsuho is an unrepentant troublemaker. The monk eventually inspires him to help people, but there’s no way Utsuho’s going to lead an honest life! Instead, he’s going to use his talents for mischief and deception for good!
A man going by the name of Ryubi has been trying to destroy a village inhabited by raccoon dogs called tanuki; Utsuho and his friends, however, have been standing in the way. Utsuho’s strategy, aided by the use of infiltration and medicine, seems to be working well enough to give him the upper hand in the conflict. But victory is far from assured, and the cost to achieve it may prove to be too high on both sides!
