GeGeGe no Kitarō
Story imk 2

Kitarō, the last of the elite yōkai family the Ghost Tribe, is born out of the graveyard after his mother dies and is buried. His father, driven by a desire to protect his son, uses the last of his spiritual energy to create a new body for himself out of the last piece of living tissue on his corpse: his eyeball.

Now, father and son dwell in the GeGeGe Forest and fight to protect humans from evil yōkai. Assisted by his allies the Kitarō Family (and sometimes Nezumi-Otoko) and armed with an assortment of ghoulish powers and fantastic weapons, he takes on villains such as Nurarihyon, Backbeard and the 808 Tanuki (and sometimes Nezumi-Otoko).

Created in 1960, the original GeGeGe no Kitarō manga became a massive franchise that has spawned seven anime adaptations, two live action theatrical films, numerous additional manga series and more.

About Shigeru Mizuki
Shigeru Mizuki

Shigeru Mizuki was born on March 8, 1922. As a child he loved hearing stories about yōkai, particularly the tales told to him by his beloved NonNonBa. After losing an arm in WWII, Mizuki returned home, got married and eventually became a manga artist. His first hit series was Kappa no Sanpei, but his breakout hit series was Hakaba Kitarō, later renamed GeGeGe no Kitarō

At the same time, Mizuki created several more series, including Akuma-kun, Onward Towards Our Noble Deaths, Hitler, Showa: A History of Japan and a manga about his relationship with NonNonBa, titled NonNonBa and Me. In 2008, his wife Nunoe published her memoirs, titled GeGeGe no Nyōbō, which was later adapted as both a TV series and a feature film.

In 1993, his hometown of Sakaiminato honored him by opening the Shigeru Mizuki Road shopping district, which features several themed shops and facilities as well as nearly 200 statues in the likeness of his characters.
