Award Reason

Deep resentment and curse of a girl who was trampled down her sheer devotion by a man at a bazaar in a capital some time ago change the girl into a "witch" with strong mighty, and she comes back quietly to the bazaar where the man lives thirtieth year after. Old street, people live there, from infants to old women or animals, each of them has a presence and each frame is excellent as a picture. Other sort story series create fantastic world of IGARASHI with skillful and delicate style.
