    Our one and only Kitarou is back with a new rendition, striving to maintain peace between the human and spirit world with his mostly dead father (who survives only in his eye), Sunakake Babaa, NekoMusume, and Konaki Jiji. The hugely popular manga gets an adaptation celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the franchise.

    This anime is interesting. Toei needed something to help them and this might be it. A lot of people rave about it so we'll see how it is. It's a Spooky anime which I dont usually use the term "Spooky" for an anime.

    A lot of the people who have seen the old one really liked the first episode as well. So I might keep on it

    The ending is great. Im still iffy about the anime though. Neko Musume is adorable though.

    The anime will enter a new arc on October 7 titled "Seiyō Yōkai-hen" (Western Yōkai Arc). A key visual for the arc, which features the Western yōkai Backbeard, was also revealed.


    The arc will center on the Western yōkai world's treasure, the "Ring of Arcana." A witch names Agnes steals the ring and flees. The Western yōkai's strongest emperor, Backbeard, and its followers follow Agnes to Japan. Agnes encounters Kitarō, and asks for his help.

    The anime will be heading into its "second year" in the show's 50th overall episode on April 7. The episode will also debut the anime's new ending song "RONDO" by BUCK-TICK.
