What is the plot of Dead Mount Death Play?
The story begins in a medieval sword-and-sorcery world where a war is being fought against a necromancer known as Corpse God and his army of undead creatures. A group of battered knights awaits the church’s hidden gem – a veteran warrior known as the Calamity Crusher. Calamity Crusher’s real name is Sir Shagrua.
Corpse God lives inside of a labyrinth and has been creating undead monsters until they finally began to leave the labyrinth and terrorize the human villages nearby. Sir Shagrua and his party travel into the depths of the labyrinth in order to face the necromancer.
Shagrua possesses the Evil Eye, which gives him the ability to see ghosts (both human and animal) and evil spirits. Due to this ability when he faces off against Corpse God he is able to see all of the souls Corpse God has sacrificed in his pursuit of immortality.
Evil Eye wielders normally go to the church seeking refuge in order to maintain their sanity, or the power corrupts them and they find pleasure in tormenting spirits as a necromancer. Corpse God also possessed the “Evil Eye” and accuses Shagrua of finding pleasure in killing.
As they deal their final attacks, Corpse God activates a teleportation spell and is whisked away to another world. When Corpse God awakens he finds himself to be in the body of a sixteen-year-old Japanese man, who has just had his throat slit.
While walking around with his throat slit and bleeding he draws the attention of the cops, but a girl named Misaki Sakimiya appears and drags him away. However, Misaki isn’t the cute, helpful girl that she at first appears to be and is actually a deadly assassin. Corpse God is able to see the souls of all the people she’s killed and his powers begin to reawaken as Misaki tries to kill him.
Now that Corpse God finds himself in modern-day Japan what will his new goal be? World domination? Finding peace and tranquility? Will Shagrua give up his hunt for Corpse God or will he find a way to travel to Japan? We’ll have to wait until the anime adaptation to find out!
