Taking place in the Tang Dynasty, a demon cat appears and breaks the peace of Chang'an City, causing a series of strange events. Poet Bai Letian and Monk Kukai join hands to investigate the death of the emperor's concubine, Lady Yang, by following the trail left by the cat.
The costumes are so beautiful, from the clothes to the ornaments just so elegant and detailed, looks expensive overall. I think the costume designs are on par if not better than Nirvana in Fire. The cinematography and the effects are so fluid, especially the cat is so lifelike and I really enjoy the shadow of the cat moving from one lantern to the other. In addition, I really like the seamless switch between the illusion and reality. The story is very intriguing and keep me guessing until the end. The styIe of the 'mystery' feels kinda similar to Hyouka somehow.
