Crazy Credits

The credits begin while Kitaro dances with Nekomusume (cat girl) and the other yokai (japanese monsters). The text look a little distorted and Medama Oyaji (eyeball father) is seen either bathing in his little bowl on the text or hanging on to them as the text scroll and the yokai continue to dance. At one point, Nekomusume kicks one of the text while dancing and it shakes up Medama Oyaji a bit See more »

Kitaro makes it right again
10 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the "Kitaro Millennium Curse" (2008) before seeing this one, so I have a little different impression of this movie than everyone else.

Gegege no Kitaro is a fun movie that brings Kitaro story to the big screen. The characters are remarkably real, and believable. Usage of CG to show Ittan Momen (Flying cloth) was a nice touch.

The movie was little rough at the edges as it was the first attempt to bring Kitaro into live action movie (This improves a lot on the Millennium Curse). The story tried to tell too much. There's the Yokai kingdom with Oo Tengu as the judge, there's Kitaro's friends Neko Musume, Konaki Jiji, Sunakake Babaa, Nurikabe, and Ittan Momen, and then there's love story between Kitaro and the girl. Things got little bit confusing, and the characters didn't get enough time of the day on each of their parts.

But the movie was fun to watch, and entertaining. I really liked the rendition of Kitaro in this movie. It could have been a real cheese, but it wasn't. The movie is recommended as is its sequel. A nice Yokai movie from Japan.
