Anime Review: Kiitarou Shounen no Youkai Enikki (Fall 2016)
The synopsis is probably bigger than my review...
This is the visual diary of Kiitarou's experience with youkai. He's a boy with a very strong spirit sense, but when he entered a forbidden storehouse, he was kicked out of his home. He soon found a new place to live, where he met a zashiki warashi (house spirit) named Suzu. He and Suzu soon began to attract all kinds of spirit creatures, starting with a nurikabe (appears as a wall that impedes travelers) and mokumokuren (appears as eyes in a torn paper wall). What kind of folkloric creature will he meet next?
What to say about this small anime that you can watch in one hour.
This is a funny anime about Youkai. You follow Kiitarou & Suzu (a house spirit). In each episode you've watch him interact with different Youkai and their relations between themselves and towards humans. Each episode is self-contain but very interesting.
Kitsunemen no Onna with her big breasts give us some fan-service toward the series (only a couple of episodes). In my opinion, unless that kind of youkai is prone to that, I think it was not needed.
The music (in the end per example) was a nice addition.
In the end I felt that this series could continue for 100 episodes if they want. After all there are a lot of different Youkai in Japanese Folklore.
If you have an hour, go for it.
