Bakegyamon (妖逆門) is an anime and manga series. Kazuhiro Fujita created the original concept. Mitsuhisa Tamura created the story and art of the manga. The series ran in Shōnen Sunday from 2006 vol. 13 through 2007 vol. 16. The anime aired on TV Tokyo. The series stars Sanshiro Tamon (多聞 三志郎), a boy in Gyakunippon. And a man named Fue (不壊) invites Sanshiro to play the Bakegyamon game. Sanshiro’s chances of having an adventure are slim to none in his tiny island hometown, until the day a mysterious stranger invites him to play a game… Without warning, Sanshiro is taken to a backwards universe to play BakéGyamon—a game pitting monsters against monsters. Along the way he meets other players who have a particular reason for being there—to obtain the wish that is granted to the winner. But how far can Sanshiro get when the monsters he’s been paired with are a bunch of little mud balls? The series concept was created by Kazuhiro Fujita, and contains a number of monsters from his popular manga series Ushio and Tora.

The story wasn’t that promising at the first, people may accuse it like a generic game match, which the MC goes along and eventually win the tournament and his wishes will be granted. It involves the existence of Ayakashi, one of Japanese’s mythical creatures being sealed as Gekifu in order to be used in a game called “Bakegyamon”. Maybe we will think: “What’s the reason of Bakegyamon? Why they seal Ayakashi in order to make children happy playing game?”
After some explanation, I found that it’s not just a generic game tournament using Ayakashi as tool in order to win and get your wish granted. It’s more than it, and the backstory was quite sad and touching. Also the last episode, was also sad because they have to say farewell so they can’t play together again.
