Watch Karakuri Circus
- 1 Season
In the anime series Karakuri Circus, a young boy fights against evil forces. The events are tied to a cycle of reincarnation that began 200 years ago when two brothers, Bai Yin and Bai Jin, traveled from China to Prague in order to study alchemy and improve their puppetry skills. The brothers encountered a beautiful woman by the name of Francine and they both fell in love with her. The younger brother, Jin, was devastated when his elder brother Yin proposed to Francine and she agreed to marry him. Fueled by hatred and despair, Jin abducted her. After 9 years of searching, Yin arrived in Quiberon, France, only to discover that Francine had fallen ill and had been imprisoned by fearful villagers. In the hopes of curing and freeing her, Yin then worked to create the Aqua Vitae, an elixir of life that could impart incredible healing powers and a greatly increased lifespan. However when he finally completed it, he found that Francine's prison had been set ablaze and she died moments before he could give it to her.
