This was also one of short films by Akutagawa Ryunosuke, but there was something similar to "magic" in the atmosphere.
Although set in Shanghai of China, the daughter of a dubious fortune-teller who kidnapped a daughter of a diplomat in the consulate there, kidnapped, but what was this woman kidnapping her daughter and trying to do? . Although the title of a fortuneteller who is a god of Agni who is also a god of a fortune has been awakening as a key word, although a young man who was a diplomat 's subordinate comes in to save his daughter , The fortune-teller's unexpectedly seemed to be the owner of unexpected skill, so do not let one young man bring back, conversely the young man failed to fail, there is also a little action element-like element at any rate, so I think that there was entertainment. Although he fails in rescuing once, he uses a hand that makes her look like a god of Agni to have transferred to her daughter afterwards There is no way that fancier's grandfather is deceived by such fake acting, I thought that the strategy would end in failure, but I was wondering why the ending of ending was waiting. Although it was a minor category among works by Ryunosuke Akutagawa, I think that it was still a work that showed excitement at key points.
Even so, although this work was set in Shanghai, it is certain that Akutagawa Ryunosuke had been studying abroad in China for the purpose of the inspection of Shanghai, and that experience might have been made use of this work .
Finally, although it will be an evaluation of this work, I will make it "good".

It is one of the work of Ryunosuke Akutagawa, this time it is somewhat complicated though it is impolite.
The God of Hinduism, the God of Agni, is a key person in the story, but this existence is still creepy.
In the end we listen to the girl's wish and release her as she said.
However, since the action at this time was too wishful for the girl, it comes to real action such as doubting Endo.
As a reader I know already that the god of Agni possessed and killed an old woman, I only think that it is dull, but her actions are correct if you think normally.

But this girl is trying to pretend to be a God of Agni, without knowing what kind of tone the god of Agni is.
I guess this is somewhat strange.
Only the end is a real reaction, but this is a bit of a doubt.

Endo was a character that seems to be a hero and looks cool.
While it was a short story, it was easy to read because there was a feeling of running like a criminal thing.

It is a short story of the content that a young man of his men helps a child of a diplomat who works at a consular office of Shanghai who was drowned by a dubious fortune telling lady. This grandmother was born in India and was fortunetelling based on the revelation by the god of Agni,
I was laughed in spite of my strong arm strength. Endo youth has been forced to temporarily break away.

If I thought that the child had failed trying to manage the god of the god of Agni there ... ... ... the old woman was a strange pierce who pierced his breast with a knife and fell deadly. Endo youth interpreted as enlightened as "It is due to Agni's will", but it may be so. You can not do bad things again. Well, the evaluation is "good".
