For the freaks who know underground animations

0

I’m looking for an animated movie I saw in a music video once. I’m like 98% sure it’s japanese, but I can’t guarantee. Maybe it could be chinese? Probably not. Anyways, judging by it’s artstyle, the movie was most likely made in the 80’s or 90’s, and has a “traditional” look (like traditional culture and stuff). The plot is something like this: there’s a guy who’s a bastard son of an emperor or something like that, and he’s pretty salty about that, so he has an affair with his step-mother (the emperor’s wife), but that doesn’t work out I guess, so he disappears to some place and adopts a girl, but like in a weird groomer not wholesome way. From what I heard it’s inspired on a real life story. Also, if I had to describe the movie in one colour it would be red. If anyone can help me I would be grateful.
