Broadcast on September 26, 2021 Available until March 31, 2037

In Asuka Village, around the time of the Autumnal Equinox. Thousands of Higanbana (Red spider lilies) bloom surrounding golden fields with ripe ears of rice. Red flowers cover up every pathway to make red carpets. What might glide over them, a red dragonfly or an autumn breeze? As the sun sets, the cluster of red clouds seems to absorb the color of Higanbana to change itself redder and darker.

*According to the 24 Solar Terms of Reiwa 3 (2021), Shuubun is from September 23 to October 8.
