The Kabuki theatre is at the center of the entertainment in the floating world in Edo, as it is the heart at the origins of passions and dreams. The representation is usually organised around the story of three characters: the male hero, the female hero, and the villain, all played by male actors. Kyūjū plays the male hero, and he is from the Sacred-Heights.
