*********** The story of the Nabeshima Vampire Cat: *************

 Lord Mitsushige Nabeshima likes to play go with his servant Matashichiro. One day, though, the lord has him beheaded. ???? Overwhelmed with grief, the servant's mother commits suicide. But before, she confides her misfortunes to her cat. The cat licks the blood of its dead mother and transforms into a Bakeneko, a haunted cat.

The Bakeneko goes to O Toyo, the beautiful mistress of Nabeshima. He visits her every night to haunt her then strangles her and then takes her appearance and her place.

Lord Nabeshima darns of nothing and continues to frequent each night the one who he thinks is O Toyo. As the days go by, he gets more and more tired and sick. Doctors cannot find the cause of his pain. They decide to make him watched at night by his soldiers to discover the truth.

But none of the soldiers can stay awake during the night. They all sink into deep sleep. Until that day when the young Ito Soda asks to stand guard. When he feels his eyelids close, he plants his dagger in his thigh so that the pain will keep him awake.

He then sees O Toyo enter the Lord's room. All night he prevents her from approaching Nabeshima, and in the morning he reports the facts to his superiors. The next night is the same, but on the third night O Toyo does not come. And Nabeshima regains strength.

But Ito Soda wants to carry out his mission, so he visits O Toyo and decapitates her. She falls to the ground in the form of a vampire cat.
