Abstract:

Kirihito Osanai is a young doctor who's been studying the Monmow disease, which transforms humans into dog-like beasts and kills them within a month of the metamorphosis. While studying the pathology of the disease, Kirihito himself becomes an unknowing guinea pig for his hospital's research. Under these auspices, Kirihito is sent to a remote village in the mountains, where he contracts the Monmow disease himself, and through a series of misfortunes, becomes estranged from his beautiful fiancee, Izumi Yoshinaga, and his close friend and rival, Urabe. As the disease begins to transform Kirihito's body physically, the sudden metamorphisis impacts his character. Kirihito soon begins to doubt the medical world and after much resistence breaks down to accept his new role as a monster and spiritual figure in the quaint rural village he now lives in. Whether he is able to come to terms with his new life, however, it is certain that society will see him very differently.
