Adachi-ga Hara (安達が原?) is the fifth anime episode in the Lion Books series. This episode is the only one in the series released to theater first (unlike the rest of the series, which was released directly to video), making it not an OVA[2].


The story is a sci-fi fantasy about an old woman who meets the young space pilot Jes, exiled for trying to overthrow Earth's pro-independence prescient Phippo and pining of his girlfriend Anny. The story is based on the classical Japanese noh theatre drama Ôshû Adachi-ga-Hara, (The Ballad of Sodehagi).


It was re-released as a DVD in March 21, 2003 on the same disk as Akuemon.
