Last night, (Sunday, 11.00 p.m.) I watched Ayakashi: (Tokaido) Yotsuya Kaidan (lit. Ghost Story of Yotsuya) and it was freakin' awesome! Ces't magnifique! I really can't wait for the next episode. it's a definitely must-watch!
This episode is actually based on a famous kabuki play by a famous kabuki directed Tsuruya Nanboku IV. The story itself is really frightening and sad at the same time. It's about a woman who is betrayed then poisoned by her own husband. Then, her body is dumped in a river and she is let to rot.
It brings my attention to one important issue. Cruelty on women is endless and it certainly transcends time. Women are the one who suffer all the negative consequences done by men and women are the ones who have to endure all the pain inflicted by men...
No wonder there are so many ghost stories based on women's suffering because of men.
