Outline of Kemono Jihen (Monster Incidents)!

※ Please note that it contains a little spoilers of Kemono Jihen (Monster Incidents)’s Episode 1 and 2.

The main protagonist, Kusaka Kabane is a boy, living in the countryside.

The main character, Kabane, is a boy, who has been taken care of by his aunt since he was young.
Since he is quiet and shy, he is bullied and asked for errands by his friends. The incident happens in the countryside, where he lives. The incident, where “a series of animal bodies rot away after a single night” has often been occurring.

The one who visited the village to solve the incident was a detective from Tokyo, Inugami Kohachi.

A detective who specializes in the occult arrives at a remote village, to solve the incident.
His name is Inugami Kohachi. He stays at the hotel, whose owner is taking care of Kabane, and thoroughly investigates a string of incidents.

Kohachi enlisted Kabane as his assistant. Both now investigate to solve the incident.

Kohachi enlists Kabane in helping him with the investigation.
While Kohachi notices that Kabane’s been bullied by his friends…… Kohachi also knows that Kabane is such a smart boy who observes and memorizes various things.
Kabane is in charge of taking care of the dead animal bodies which have got killed, so the timing when the incident happens is solved by him. Even though they both are well-prepared for the next incident……

Kabane is a half-monster, born between a demon and a human.

While Kabane is fighting against his relative’s boy, the necklace which he got from his parents comes off.
Right after that, Kabane turns into something else. His arms get swollen like the monster, as if he has an impulse of “wanting to eat a human.” After he picks up the necklace, his appearance and impulse get back to normal but……
Kabane is sure about something. He, himself, is the monster who has been attacking the animals. He convinces that the fact that his face and arms have changed and the impulse, where he wants to attack them, is a clear evidence.
However, Kohachi denies his idea. According to him, the necklace is the key point, which can get rid of such an impulse, and Kabane, who has been carrying it with him, is innocent. And……
Kohachi shows him his butt.
There, Kabane sees a raccoon’s tail.
Actually, Kohachi is a raccoon and the monster who can turn into a human’s figure. They both confess about themselves and swear that they will help with each other. Meanwhile, the boy who ran away, being scared by Kabane’s figure, runs across the worst “monster” in the worst timing……!

And the story is now set in Tokyo!
Now Kabane sees some other assistants of Kohachi!

Kohachi and Kobane are now in Tokyo after they have solved the incident in the countryside.
Kabane is still an assistant of Kohachi but…… there are other “monster” boy-assistants at the office.
