Nezumi-Otoko and Neko-Musume (Neko-Musume to Nezumi-Otoko, 猫娘とねずみ男) is the 20th episode of the 1968 anime.
Nezumi-Otoko’s latest scheme is selling a fake pill to stop the power of the Sanshi (or San-chuu) to people. For that, the Sanshi within Nezumi had tattled to Enma-Daiō and he sends a red paper (which is the death sentence). Kitaro was given orders to kill Nezumi-Otoko, but he couldn't, so he asks Neko-Musume to punish him.
