woodcut print (panel, Japanese paper, oil ink)

This is a battle piece depicting a confrontation between modern rational society which controls modern conveniences such as light and fire, and the dark and cold irrational world where unknown monsters reside. On the right, sorcerer Jiraiya and a toad, his minion, attack office workers and junior high school students who are would-be office workers, as they are desperately defending themselves against the attack.
