In 2008, while the 5th anime series was still being aired, a new anime based on the original "Hakaba Kitarō" manga stories was aired. It ran for 11 episodes from January 10 to March 20. The series featured the return of voice actors Masako Nozawa and Chikao Ohtsuka to their respective original roles of Kitarō and Nezumi-Otoko. As in the main anime series, Isamu Tanonaka reprised the role of Medama-Oyaji.

About

Kitarō is a yōkai boy born in a cemetery, and aside from his mostly-decayed father, the last living member of the Ghost tribe. He is missing his left eye, but his hair usually covers the empty socket. He fights for peace between humans and yōkai, which generally involves protecting the former from the wiles of the latter.

This version of the Kitarō story is based on the original "Hakaba Kitarō" manga, the manga which inspired the popular "Gegege no Kitarō" series in the late 60's.
