    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 ...

    It’s Not Just for Kids
    My Japanese’s co-worker commented, when he heard me humming the Ge Ge Ge no Kitaro theme song, that he was fascinated that I was watching a kids show. Judging by his surprise I am guessing that he didn’t think it was a show an adult could enjoy. Indeed I think he considered the show to be childish.
    This is the six [wow] iteration of Ge Ge Ge no Kitaro, I am not sure if the previous instalments ...

    GeGeGe no Kitaro is Great
    I'm so happy to see this on Crunchyroll. To understand the importance of the series you need a short history lesson. This is the 6th release of GeGeGe no Kitaro and the first official appearance outside japan since it's first anime debut in 1968 with a new release each decade. GeGeGe no Kitaro was notable for first bringing yokai to the public spotlight, something that was not previously not well ...

    GeGeGe no Kitaro can be enjoyed by anyone
    Its hard to write something that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults, but this show does its job surprisingly well. Overall Its a good show that has some glaring flaws that stop me from giving it 5 stars. Lets start with the good first its a creative show on both the visuals and writing aspects, and the show has some wonderful commentary about Japanese culture. Now for the flaws the cat-girl ...

    A little gem in the rough
    This has been great so far. Not a fan of the art style (character style?) but it works well with the story and it has grown on me. Solid paranormal anime. I've watched a lot and this one stands out just as yu yu hakusho did. Plus the main characters for both have a similar move which had to have been done on purpose. Good clean family fun hahaha

    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 Magical Show about Everyday Horrors
    After doing some research, Kitaro is a popular older manga series about a yokai boy who solves problems between the human and spirit sides of the plane. The original manga was an homage to Japanese folklore and been adapted in various media from radio plays to movies and other anime. This version of the property once again is an homage to traditional folklore, but it utilizes the monsters in a ...

  • Middle School Horror with heart
    Utterly delightful. Shigeru Mizuki's classic brought into the modern world, Gegege no Kitaro is playful, scary & optimistic. Morally instructive horror stories for kids, written with vivid imagination, compassionate traditionalism and blood-chilling thrills.
