  Once upon a time, a fierce ogre has lived at a mountain in Osaka.
  The ogre has an only daughter. And today is the first day for her for man-eating.

人食い鬼の娘

“Well, as a human will soon walk through here, attack and eat it.”
  The father ogre kindly told his daughter but she shook her head with fear.

人食い鬼の娘

“No. I don’t want to eat humans.”
“No problem, I will be with you.”
“To begin with, unless you can eat humans, you cannot be a good ogre.”

人食い鬼の娘

“But….”
“Hey, take it easy.”
  The father persuaded her seriously.
  Then a man walked through there.

人食い鬼の娘

  He was a cool and quite handsome man, and also seemed strong.

人食い鬼の娘

  The daughter soon hid herself behind of her father with fear and embarrassment.

人食い鬼の娘

“Hey, hurry up. Go and eat him.”

人食い鬼の娘

  The father stuck her out in front of him.

人食い鬼の娘

人食い鬼の娘

“Ogres!”

人食い鬼の娘

 The man was surprised and immediately tried to run away.

人食い鬼の娘

 Soon the daughter began crying with shading her face with her hands.

人食い鬼の娘

“No. I don’t want to eat humans.”
 She was actually an ogre but still a cute girl.
 The man calmed down and gently gave her a suggestion.
“Hey girl. Don’t cry anymore.
 By the way, why don’t you do arm wrestling with me?

人食い鬼の娘

 If you won, I will happily present my body to you.

人食い鬼の娘

  But, if you lose, please give up to eat humans forever.
 Is it okay?”
 Then she grinned.

人食い鬼の娘

  She likes arm wrestling and has never lost to her friends.
 “Yes, let’s do it.”

人食い鬼の娘

  Then the man and she began doing arm wrestling right away.
“Are you ready? fight!”

人食い鬼の娘

  However, the man was very strong so that her arm was nearly laid down.
 The father, who was hidden himself and looking their fight, finally appeared as he cannot stand anymore.

人食い鬼の娘

“Hey, my daughter, what’s going on? He is just a human.Come on. Now!”

人食い鬼の娘

 But the man was strong, so the daughter was turned over herself.

人食い鬼の娘

“Oh my god, I lost.”

人食い鬼の娘

 The father help her up and nearly scolded.

人食い鬼の娘

“This is really shameful.We may not able to eat humans in the future.”
 And the father suggested the man.
“Next, we will have a tug of war.”

人食い鬼の娘

 And he handed the man the other end of a rope,he and the daughter tugged the rope with full force together.

人食い鬼の娘

“Here! See how strong we are!”

人食い鬼の娘

 However, as the man was much stronger,

人食い鬼の娘

 the ogres were dragged forward.
“Hey, someone, help us!”

人食い鬼の娘

 Two other ogres appeared from somewhere responding to the father’s call, and joined the tug of war.

人食い鬼の娘

“Heave ho! Heave ho!”
 Four ogres tugged the rope with clenching their teeth.

人食い鬼の娘

 But the all of the four ogres were dragged forward and fell down toward the man.

人食い鬼の娘

 The father was surprised.

人食い鬼の娘

“I am astonished.
 Man. No. Sir, how strong you are.
 You are a human who we can hardly eat.”

人食い鬼の娘

 The man told the father ogre who was impressed.

人食い鬼の娘

“Then, as you promised, stop man-eating forever.”

人食い鬼の娘

“Sure. I will keep my word.”

人食い鬼の娘

人食い鬼の娘

 After that, ogres have never attacked humans along with their promise.
