History

1996 Anime

A Japanese tabloid magazine features an article about the legend of the "Water of Life", giving a very misleading story that the water grants immortality. A numbers of greedy Japanese people rushed to the island, polluting it in the process, including the Southern Yōkai's favorite areas. This caused the Southern Yōkai to take revenge on the Japanese.

Trivia

  • This is the only time the island that the Dai-Kaijū story takes place in has been given a name while all versions of the story took place on an island of New Guinea.
