Kasha was first seen as an antagonist but then became good in every anime he's been in.
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 nekomata, and it is also said that cats that grow old would turn into that yōkai.
