【Episode 9 “Mikoto and Mikoto”】
“Once upon a time in a certain land, there lived an old man and an old woman.
The old man went to the mountains to cut grass, and the old woman went to the river to wash clothes… (skipping ahead a little)”
Born of a peach, Kibitsuhiko-no-mikoto, also known as Momotaro, entered Onigashima and defeated the leader of the Oni. And they all lived happily ever after…
Not quite. This story continued further.
After finishing his fight with the Oni, one day Kibitsuhiko-no-mikoto comes across a young boy born between humanity and the Oni…
This anime is being broadcast on TV in its “on-air version”, which shuffles the chronological order of the episodes that are broadcasted into a nonlinear order.

Once upon a time in a certain land, there lived an old man and an old woman.
The old man went to the mountains to cut grass, and the old woman went to the river to wash clothes… (skipping ahead a little)
Eventually the demons were all destroyed, but it was said that more demons still roamed other lands…
So the peach boy Momotaro set off across the sea.
It was amazing that they were all defeated, and it should have been a cause for joy.
However, the one thing that was off…
Killing them was fun.
This is just hypothetical, but…
Suppose there was more than one big peach in this story…
Suppose that the peach that floated to Japan wasn’t alone…
