Program Abstract: During a dage age of demons and ghosts in the Heian period (794-1185 AD), the Emperor relies upon the imperial order of the Onmyoji, who are the experts of the supernatural power, to protect the kingdom. However, as the birth of the emperor's heir approaches, political intrigue and jealously will lead to the most dangerous of betrayals- from within the Onmyoji and the Emperor's family! It will be up to the most talented of the order, Seimi (Mansai Nomura), to face his master, Doson (Kiroyuki Sanada), and the dark magic that threatens to destroy them all!
