Among the ruins of the city, there is a game only children can play. It is called “Otokoyo”; a game of hide-and-seek. But whenever children play this game, one by one they would disappear into the blinds of the buildings… The story begins when a boy enters the world of Otokoyo, to find his missing sister.

Hannah's comments: The film actually disappointed me a lot. It sure is very nice animation of all people, masks, things and movements and the "scary" music is good, but the story is thin. The best part is when the time has passed 19-20 minutes. It supposed to be seen during Halloween, but take any other REAL scary animé instead. I´m glad that the Kakarenbo was so short. It can´t even scare small children...well maybe some of the masks, but definitely not the story itself.
