Story[edit | edit source]
It's the 70s, and it's a wedding-- a recipe for disaster. Thus, a pair of oni just sort of appear there, and da blue one quickly kills the other one. The living oni then realizes it forgot to bring a wedding gift, and so he loans the couple a baby he just had with him for some reason. It's just a loan, though, and he will be back in 15 years to take it back.
Instead of giving the baby to like, the FBI or the Ghostbusters or something, they keep the thing and name him Jiro Shutendo... get it? Now, being a demon baby and all Jiro has some weird powers, and his adoptive Dad figures it would probably be a good idea to research the oni so that he knows what the fuck is actually happening. Fifteen years come and go, and then the plot happens, and it involves a lot of spacetime weirdness, violence, and tiddies. Especially tiddies.
