When people’s uncontrollable emotions begin to overflow, that’s when they become evil.
In prosperous ancient Kyoto, court musician Minamoto Hiromasa, grandson of Emperor Daigo, visits the residence of the official onmyoji – the yin-yang prophets – in hopes of unraveling the mysteries of the flood. Demons are disturbing the city. While there, he is introduced to a man perfectly suited to solve these mysteries: the great onmyouji Abe Seimei, a man with an otherworldly aura. Hiromasa is annoyed by Seimei’s lack of interest in the mundane world and his reluctance to help, but the two of them confront the demons for the cause. They finally found onmyouji Ashiya Doman, who was lurking in the shadows of the demons. Seimei and Hiromasa are joined by Hiromasa’s flute teacher, Prince Atsumi, the emperor’s onmyoji Kamo Yasunori, and Lady Tsuyuko, who comes with them due to a specific case. As their emotions intertwine like threads, can Seimei and Hiromasa restore peace to the capital? The challenge of these mismatched friends with a common destiny begins now.”
