Fusé: Teppō Musume no Torimonochō (伏 鉄砲娘の捕物帳 / FUSE – Memoirs of the Hunter Girl) is a 2012 Japanese animated film directed by Masayuki Miyaji based on Kazuki Sakuraba’s book Fusé Gansaku: Satomi Hakkenden. Both novel and film are an adaptation of Kyokutei Bakin’s Nansō Satomi Hakkenden, focusing on a female hunter named Hamaji. In Kyokutei Bakin’s classic Japanese epic novel Nansou Satomi Hakkenden, eight samurai serve the Satomi clan during Japan’s tumultuous Sengoku (Warring States) era. The Edo-era samurai are the reincarnations of the spirits that Princess Fuse mothered with a dog named Yatsufusa. In Fuse Gansaku: Satomi Hakkenden, the female hunter Hamaji comes to her brother in order to hunt Fuse. Thus, the karmic cycle of retribution that began long ago with the Satomi family begins anew.
