GeGeGe no Kitaro (1996) – Episode 01

Here’s the first episode of the 1990s reboot of GeGeGe no Kitaro, far more satisfying than the 1980s version in my opinion. Apparently creator Shigeru Mizuki asked the production team to give this version a somewhat Hayao Miazaki-esque flavor, and this influence can be seen in the color styling and some of the human character designs, as well as even more of an emphasis on human development disrupting existing ecosystems (thus awakening dormant Yokai, as in this episode).

Get it from Nyaa or Mega.

This is a joint production with Hokuto no Gun, be sure to check out their site here.

While I’ve mentioned before that it doesn’t seem likely that we will be able to subtitle all 439 episodes in my lifetime, you can expect to see at least some episodes from all 5 TV series eventually, and we do plan on doing all of the movies.

Big thanks to SakoeraTyan for hooking us up with the Japanese closed captions from the current reruns in Japan. This is a big help, so look forward to seeing more fourth series episodes in the near-ish future. And the first two series are still my personal favorites, we will be continuing to subtitle those as time permits.

GeGeGe no Kitaro movie #2: The Geomancer’s Eye (1980)

Here’s the second Kitaro movie, and the last one to consist of recycled TV footage. It’s actually a “fun size” abbreviated 12 minute version of series 2, episode 37. This was shown as part of the summer 1980 Toei Manga Matsuri (cartoon festival), which also included a Magical Girl Lalabel short, the Denjiman movie, and a re-release of the very first full length Disney animated feature, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Get it from Nyaa or Mega.

Kitaro is a joint project with Hokuto no Gun, who also released a chapter of the Yokai Hunter manga for Halloween. Check out their site here.

 Yokai Ningen Bem (1968) – Episode 01

Bem, Bella and Bello are neither human nor animal, but humanoid monsters. Inside their hideous bodies, a strong desire for justice drives them to seek out and thwart evildoers.  What makes this show different from other Yokai shows like GeGeGe no Kitaro or Dororon Enma-kun is that this little band of justice seekers don’t always go up against renegade monsters. Sometimes (as is the case in this episode) the villains are just greedy, conniving humans. Produced by Dai-ichi Animation (the makers of Golden Bat).

Get it from Nyaa or Mega.

I have quite a few unreleased one-off episodes of various anime and live-action shows that I may get around to releasing at some point. I actually subtitled this one in 2012. No current plans to do more Bem episodes at  this point, but you never know.

Shocked to discover Saki’s true identity, the Old Man of Kamakura sends his servant Kikaibo to find out how much she knows about the secrets of the iron mask. With the police and media suppressed, Kage no Soto has started to implement Seiroukai’s Wolf Revolution, but there are still some key student leaders he needs to recruit to the cause, such as Kudo Miki. The students of Ryozan High have joined forces with students from other schools to form the Ryozan Alliance, but Saki may be too exhausted and conflicted to lead them. And then there’s the Namera problem…
