Kitaro Meets Nurarihyon is the second volume in the adventures of
Shigeru Mizuki s bizarre yokai boy Kitaro and his gaggle of other-
worldly friends. These seven stories date from the golden age of
Gegege no Kitaro, when Mizuki had perfected the balance of
folklore, comedy, and horror that made Kitaro one of Japan s most
beloved characters. In Kitaro Meets Nurarihyon, Kitaro and his
father Medama Oyaji face off against one of their most powerful
enemies the self-styled Yokai Supreme Commander known as
Nurarihyon. Over the course of this volume, Kitaro takes on the
swamp-dwelling Sawa Kozo, the mysterious Diamond Yokai, the sea
giant called Umizato, and wages a double-feature of battles against
the bizarre Odoro Odoro. Finally, Kitaro journeys to hell itself in
the infamous and surreal story Hell Ride. In addition to more than
150 pages of Mizuki s all-ages monster fun, Kitaro Meets Nurarihyon
includes bonus materials: Yokai Files that introduce Japan's
folklore monsters and a 'History of Kitaro' essay by translator
Zack Davisson. If you found the world of yoki fascinating in the
The Birth of Kitaro, you will find even more to love in Kitaro
