This has a nice love story at it's base. Not a romance, but two people figuring how they lost each other.
The rest is creepy house(s) suspended in time, a cursed village, and a monster monk.
And the toad king.
Remember what I said about more mature? We had a little backsliding. Not bad, but at one point he gleefully, and repeatedly, mentions a testicle slicer.
All in all, a good story of the supernatural with plenty of humor thrown in.
