Synopsis

The first four series of the twelve called 'A double suicide in Kamakura', 'Ghost', 'Society' and 'New World' are based on widely known novel of Dazai Osamu 'ningen shikkaku' which in its turn is loosely based on author's own life events. And the lyrical character of this work is agonizingly similar to contradictory personality of Dazai himself.
The fifth and sixth episodes are the adaptation of Sakaguchi Ango work 'sakura no mori no mankai no shita'. This is the story of mountain bandit who meet one day incredibly attractive woman and and from that day his life was turned into a nightmare. A nightmare as beautiful as sakura petals.
The seventh and eighth episodes are a screen reflection of Natsume Souseki novel 'kokoro' about two friends. One educated and sophisticated and one simple and straightforward. They was both in love with a one girl but her mom nurtured its own plans for a daughter. This love story with the tragic end was told twice from the perspective of each of the two former friends.
Ninth and tenth series based on another masterpiece of Dazai . Short story 'hashire melos!' On the one hand it is associated with a particular shameful moment in his life, on the other hand, it is a free paraphrase of Schiller's ballad "Die Bürgschaft". It is story eternal as the world itself. The story about loyalty and allegiance to a friend. But as always with this author deceptively simple story has hidden subtext.
The last two series of twelve based on the works of Akutagawa Ryuunosuke 'kumo no ito' and 'jigoku hen'. They are united by a common theme of sin and repentance. In one of them a criminal landed in a Hell and remembered his only good deed in all his life. And in the other talented painter was invited to the palace of the tyrant to draw on its walls the pictures of daily life of the kingdom. But everything has its price. And if the desire is great, the price would be enormous.
