Kasha (火車, fire cat) is a cat-like yokai.

Appearance

His long purple tail ends in a constantly burning fire, which he uses in his attacks.[1]

Kasha appears in episode #90 of the fifth anime adaption, A Large Runaway on New Year! Kitarō and Kasha.[1] He's one of the chosen 47 Yōkai Warriors and the representative of Shimane. His mark is located on his chest.

Legend

The Kasha of legend is a cannibalistic, cat-like spirit entity which is found near crematoriums and tries to feed off human corpses. In order to ward off the kasha, Japanese families make loud noises on bells, gongs and drums to maintain a vigil over the bodies of the departed ones. In many cases their true identity of the kasha is actually a Neko-Mata, and it is also said that cats that grow old would turn into that yōkai.
