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 »

Not Bad: Mostly For Young Adults
21 May 2010 | by crossbow0106See all my reviews

This film is based on a manga I haven't seen, but it is still a pretty good, special effects laden, imaginative film. Ostensibly about finding and returning an evil stone that was taken by a young boy's father, who in turn is chased with his high school age sister by an array of interesting, not of this world characters, this film takes you to a lot of places. The good versus evil theme is, of course, prevalent throughout, and the film is recommended more for children from about 10 to 17. The film has flaws, the film is far from perfect, but I think it will keep children entertained without scaring them out of their wits. In that sense, the film is successful.
