Hmm, a peculiar character so far. I think the first episode did its job at establishing the premise and making the characters stand out. I haven't seen the original series before so I'm coming into this series fresh.

Thta being said, I like what I see so far and this semes like modern day fantasy show.

Episode 1

In the first episode we are introduced to Mana Inuyama who's always defending her neighbor from being bully from two brothers. Turns out the the brother are picking on him because he believes what his grandmother is saying that people are being turned into to trees by youkai. He than mentions they should send Kitarou a letter to help with the problem. In order to find the mail box Mana decides to ask online and someone unknown responds. She delivers the letter and than the next day Kitarou shows up scaring her and the older brother. Kitarou introduces himself and his father who is a eyeball with a small body. And he happens to be nude..

Well the youkai turning people into trees is a Nobiagari which has a long body and eye. The first time they face it Kitarou protects Mana from the Nobiagari and gets a seed implanted into him and he turns into a tree. Mana and Kitarou's dad have to wait for the tree to bear a fruit and out comes Kiatrou. The second time Mana can now see youkai and she tries to help out and happens to trip on a bottle causing Kitarou to discover the Nobiagari weakness. He than is able to defeat the Nobiagari but soon after he gets attacked by someone unknown?

The first episode was pretty good and it had it's funny moments so i'll keep watching.

I remember watching this show in 80s was pretty good and I think over 100 episodes. The animation looks vastly improved

*joke about Kitaro being a Spirit Detective*

Also, I think Kitaro's dad took the phrase "keeping an eye on you" a little too literally...

Anyway, the show looks neat. I've never seen any of the other series, but I'll give this a try. I do like yokai anime.

Also haven't seen the previous iteration, but this first episode was quite exciting. That cliffhanger looked painful. I'm guessing Kitaro is just taking a human form (or perhaps him and the Eyeball aren't biologically related), and if so, I'm curious to see his real form. For now, I won't say much more than this looks promising and eager for more!

That Spirit Gun moment was hype! Couldn't help but be reminded of Yusuke.

So... I've noticed that CR is starting to translate OPs and EDs. If they're doing this from now on that's good.

Lol, that spirit gun.

Nice to see Logan Paul get roasted. Too bad he came back from Tree-ville at the end though. Would have been nice to him be the only one left as a tree at the end, and to have him be removed from the Shibuya crossing via chainsaw.

Fun first episode. I'll definitely be coming back for more on this one.
