ディレクターコメント
国芳は豊国の門人で、当初は兄弟子の国貞等の人気に勝てず、しばらくは不遇であった。文政頃に発表した「通俗水滸伝豪傑百八人」の連作が評判となり、「武者絵の国芳」と称され、人気絵師の仲間入りを果たした。その後は画想の豊かさ、斬新なデザイン力、奇想天外なアイデア、確実なデッサン力を持ち、浮世絵の枠にとどまらない広範な魅力を持つ作品を多数生み出した。
この作品は、恐ろしい形相で頼光に襲い掛かる鬼童丸を描いた一枚。頼光を恨んだ鬼童丸は鞍馬で頼光を待ち伏せし襲い掛かったが、頼光はそれを見抜き、一刀のもとに鬼童丸を斬り捨てるのであった。

Kuniyoshi was one of the pupils of Toyokuni and was a late bloomer than Kunisada and others who are brother pupils.
Around the Bunsei-period, he published "108 Heroes of the Popular Suikoden", and it created a sensation and it made him popular. He was called "Warrior-painter-Kuniyoshi", and he became one of the most popular Ukiyo-e artists.
Since then, he had created various attractive artworks that excelled in high drawing techniques, fascinated composition sense, and fantastic ideas and characters, without sticking to the framework of the Ukiyo-e.
This artwork is a depiction of Kidomaru who is attacking Raiko with a fierce expression on his face. Kidomaru ambushed Raiko at Kurama with a grudge, however, Raiko noticed it and the plot was prevented by his retainers.
