    I love the 21st Century stereotype
    The world is about to end. The sky turns red and a giant tsunami is coming directly towards you. What's your first reaction? You take out your flippin' phone and take a picture.

    I absolutely enjoy the stereotypical 21st century spirit of using your phone for everything and being on social media. And maybe to become internet famous. It makes you look at how the world is right now and we can have ...

    I...... I Like it!!!!
    I'm a pretty big fan of any show that has Yokai, and the 60's manga for this series is what popularised yokai in the first place. I've know about previous adaptations for GGGnK, but this adaptation is the first I've seen. I went into it pretty open minded, and was pleasantly surprised. I'd recommend this to just about anyone, and will personally introduce this to some younger upcoming anime ...

    Very unique yokai/exorcism anime
    This story seems like it's going to follow a similar plot to a lot of other "vanquishing demons" anime series but it's presented in a different way. The tone is very quirky and hmmm...what's the word I'm looking for...weird?

    Definitely worth watching but might not appeal to some.

    A youkai comic, it looks like it will be good as a classic humor anime
    This is the latest anime of this popular manga. Bright colors, everyone looks like their comic counterpart. GiGi no Kitaro sees Yokai and he's called when people start turning into trees. Kitaro is accompanied by Medama Oyaji who is an anthropomorphic eyeball and the spirit of Kitaro's father. Mana Inuyama calls him for help and she is surprised when he shows up, she doesn't believe in Yokai. ...

  • Definitely Enjoyable
    I was initially interested in seeing this anime due to the first episode pretty much sticking it to that scumbag Logan Paul in the first few minutes. After that, I find myself really liking this show. The animation is very nice and solid with great designs for the various yokai, and the various characters are enjoyable to watch (my favorite character is of course Catchick). My only nitpick is that ...

  • This series always ages well
    The team behind this new adaptation clearly knows how to aim for younger generations to be interested in this old school anime.

    Some character redesigns might throw some old time fans off, but I think that the spectacular animation, very good music and episodes with good pacing make up for it.

  • Youkai versus Youkai
    GeGeGe no Kitaro is now the sixth anime incarnation of the manga that began in 1960. Our protagonist Kitaro is a human/youkai halfbreed who is the last surviving member of the Ghost Tribe, and he strives to protect human and youkai from each other. He is usually contacted through a "youkai" mailbox by people seeking aid against the supernatural machinations of various youkai, and has help ...

    Basically Ghost Stories pre-dub.
    This show has spectacular animation, but all the characters fall flat and the whole "Hurr Durr all kids do is look at their phones" theme of the episode felt like it was written by a delusional baby boomer. tl;dr think Ghost Stories pre-dub but with really damn good animation and music.
