Story Summary Edit

The events in Kourinden happen in the fall, after the TV series. Seiji has returned home to Myagi. Seiji is supervising/teaching a kendo class in the Date family dojo. After class, he is spooked by bells which turn out to be a little girls toy. Her name is Reiko and is the daughter of Youko, an old acquaintance of Seiji's. Together they go to the temple but Seiji is irritated by something.

Suddenly, Reiko runs out into the street as a motorcycle zeroes in. Seiji throws himself in front of the bike and is critically wounded. While in the hospital, Seiji's soul goes through a type of nightmare. His inner demons are pulling him down toward death when his friends souls come to help him.

In the end, Seiji's soul drives out the demons but he is still tortured by the bells of the little girl that kept appearing in and out of his nightmare. It is actually his younger self. When he was younger, he was very weak so his family raised him as a girl, because girls are "easier to raise".
