Kohachi Inugami, a detective who specializes in the occult, arrives at a remote village in the Japanese countryside, tasked by a hostess at a local inn to investigate a string of incidents involving rotting and mutilated livestock corpses that have been appearing for seemingly no reason. While surveying, Inugami notices a peculiar young boy working in the fields. Evaded by his peers and called “Dorotabou” for his stench, the young farmhand is surprised that anybody would take an interest in him.
Inugami, piqued with curiosity, enlists Dorotabou in helping him with the investigation, despite scorned looks from the villagers. Unbeknownst to Dorotabou, this investigation will reveal a strange new world to him—one of the beast-like entities known as Kemono existing in tandem with humans—along with breathing new purpose into his previously empty life.
When a series of animal bodies that rot away after a single night begin appearing in a remote mountain village, Inugami, a detective from Tokyo who specializes in the occult, is called to investigate. While working the case, he befriends a strange boy who works in the field every day instead of going to school. Shunned by his peers and nicknamed “Dorota-bou” after a yokai that lives in the mud, he helps Inugami uncover the truth behind the killings-but supernatural forces are at work, and while Dorota-bou is just a nickname, it might not be the only thing about the boy that isn’t human.

After watching this anime anyone would think that it might look like a normal anime but it is not as the story progresses and the characters are established the story takes a good twist and become really depressing and heartbreaking. There was a movement when I was about to cry. But the story is good and I recommend everyone to just give it a try.
