The animation company Studio Pierrot and the television network TV Tokyo are promoting their Fall 2010 film Onigamiden at Tokyo International Anime Fair this week. The film's story revolves around the war between oni (demons) and humans in the former Japanese capital of Kyoto, 1,200 years ago during the Heian period. The anime adapts a 2004 two-volume novel by the same name from author Takafumi Takada. The official website of the film has already launched. The film will open in Japan on October 9.
