Oni (One-Shot)
Page: 001 / Chapter 0: Oni (One-Shot)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Narrator: Throughout the three thousand years of Japanese history, myths and legends have been told about a strange demonic creature called the "Oni".

Kanji: Oni

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page: 002
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Narrator: It was said to stand about ten to twenty feet tall, and it possessed large horns growing on it's head. And where humans would have had teeth and nails, Oni possessed claws and fangs...

Narrator: People of the Heian Period, around 700 AD, told about many stories and legends witnessing the Oni, and thus the demon became part of their history.
(TN: The Heian period, is the last division of classical Japanese history, running from 794 to 1185. The period is named after the capital city of Heian-kyo, or modern Kyoto. It is the period in Japanese history when Buddhism, Taoism and other Chinese influences were at their height. The Heian period is also considered the peak of the Japanese imperial court and noted for its art, especially poetry and literature.)

Narrator: Even in modern Japan today, stories of the Oni persist. But what were these strange creatures? And where did they emerge from? Did anything more than fantasy and imagination underlie the myths...?

Kagetora: We're surrounded by corpses all around us...

Kagetora: They're as far as the human eye can wish to see!

Kagetora: Nothing but the bodies of those we've slain, while they begged for mercy...

Kagetora: These heaps of carrion have underestimated my immense power. None of them could stand before me!
(TN: Carrion (from the Latin "caro", meaning "meat") refers to the carcass of a dead animal. Or in this case, dead people.)

Narrator: "I'll build a mountain of the dead all through Japan, and consolidate my immortal empire atop their bones."

Kagetora: Eh!?

Peasent: I'm going to kill you, Kagetora Demon!

Kagetora: It looks like we have a survivor in the midst of this carnage.

Kagetora: Who are you?

Peasent: You killed my family!

Kagetora: What? You're nothing but a peasent.

Peasent: Noo!!

Peasent: Ahhh!

Kagetora: You're a very brave kid! But what made you think that an untrained peasant like you could stand up to a rural samurai like me?

Kagetora: Now you're going to pay the price for defying me!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kagetora: Take him out and torture him!

Kagetora: I want him to feel real pain!

Kagetora: Let him have a taste of whips, swords and spears!

Kagetora: But keep the boy alive!

Kagetora: There will be no death, but have no mercy on him!

Kagetora: His agonies will serve as an example for all those who dare to defy me! Ten days from now, you are to take off his head!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Peasent: I'm not going to die!

Peasent: I can't let them kill me... Not like this...

Peasent: I swear I will survive...

Peasent: I will avenge my parents... My sister...

Peasent: And the memory of all the other victims...

Peasent: I will never die!!

This Ends Go Nagai's: Oni (One-Shot)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TN: This was a special controversial one-shot that Go Nagai put out in 1988. According to many sources. This was released in two magazines. It first appeared Italy's very own: "Kappa Comics". And than it appeared in the Marvel Comics imprint: "Epic Illustrated" from the late 80's. The translation I did is based off of the actual Italian version. For what it's worth. Being just a 10 page One-Shot. It was pretty fun. This could have been a great series if Go Nagai pursued it. But than again. Go Nagai is one for making interesting One-Shot's. But never making full series out of them xD

Here's a good song to listen to while you read this: Opeth - Porcelain Heart
