Synopsis for Nokemono-tachi no Yoru
Wisteria is an orphan girl who lives in a corner of the British Empire at the end of the 19th century. Her life is bleak and bleak, until she meets Marbas, a powerful but equally lonely hairy-looking immortal being stalked by hunters. Together, Wisteria and Marbas travel the Empire -populated by humans and human-like beasts- in search of a place where they can live together in peace.
