Ghost Slayers Ayashi
- 1 Season
In feudal Japan, during the 14th year of the Tenpo era, the city Edo is attacked by monsters called 'Youi'. Committed to combating these monsters are the warriors Ayashi. These warriors come from an organization called Bansha Artemesho, located under the city of Edo. To the public, this organization is known as a research institute of foreign literature, but in actuality it is an organization dedicated to slaying Youi, evil spirits who have taken on a physical form. The Ayashi consist of Ogasawara H?zabur?, the leader of the Ayashi, Edo Genbatsu, a cross-dressing Shinto priest, Abi, a mountain man, and a cross-dressing girl named Saizo. Each member of the Ayashi has a special power that aids them in their fight against the Youi. The members of Ayashi set out to find Ryuudou Yukiatsu, a wanderer, and an employee of a bath house. Yukiatsu has the power of Ayagami, the power to see the words behind things, which can be used against the Youi, and potentially help the Ayashi win in their battle against the Youi.
