Utsuho’s truthfulness as a child resulted in an enormous catastrophe, and he decided to lie from that day forward. Raised in a village of orphans by a monk, Utsuho is an unrepentant troublemaker. The monk eventually inspires him to help people, but there’s no way Utsuho’s going to lead an honest life! Instead, he’s going to use his talents for mischief and deception for good!2
As he travels, he meets Pochi, an innocent tanuki, Yakuma, a serious, skilled young doctor, and Neya, an elegant teenaged girl who is an itsuwaribito with an innocent personality. With these 3 main companions, Utsuho travels Japan to increase the numbers of his family and save people with his lies.
