Plot Summary: It is the Heian period in Japan, and Abe no Seimei is a minor onmyoji in the emperor's court. The emperor has two main ministers, of the Left and of the Right. When the daughter of one of the ministers bears the emperor a son, named heir, the other minister becomes jealous, angry that his own daughter is not the bearer of the crown prince. Another onmyoji notices this and comes to the jealous minister ready to offer his services for a plot to get rid of the baby. Only one onmyoji is able to solve the mysteries surrounding the strange occurrences at court: Abe no Seimei, destined to be the greatest onmyoji of all times.
