Anime and Video Game Characters: Medicine Peddler
The Medicine Peddler from the anime series Mononoke. Not much is known about him. He appears, people suffer, and then he leaves. Well, okay, maybe it's not that simple. The Medicine Peddler appears at places where there are monsters/ghosts that are still hanging around because they can't move on. And so, The Medicine Peddler has to figure out the monster/ghosts' Form, Truth, and Reason, and then he proceeds to go badass mode and kills the monster/ghost.
Did I mention that he appears in many time periods and not just Edo Japan? Yeah, from what I see, he can appear wherever and whenever he wants. That's a pretty damn good ability. And did I mention that he makes his first appearance in Ayakashi: Samurai Horror Tales? And a lot of people die? And that the way the story is told is actually scary? Yep, now you know. I should do a review on that. Maybe next time.
