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?

Kiitarou Shounen no Youkai Enikki, or Kiitaro's Yokai Picture Diary, is a short and straightforward anime. If you're into watching short time duration anime and increasing your anime list entries, then here is an anime for you. As one can expect from the title alone, the anime is about meeting and interacting with yokai (supernatural monsters, spirits, and demons from Japanese folklore). Don't be fooled by the first episode or first half of the series, this anime is laid back and somewhat dull but there is some good story by the end.

Mixed Feelings
I feel that I should write a review that can do this short anime some justice. People is not giving it much appreciation!

Story: 5/10
I can give a 5 at most since there is not much a of story behind this short anime.
Its about a boy called Kitarou with supernatural senses, who gets kicked out of his household and suddenly wanders off and becomes the master of a youkai home. The show features his daily encounters with different youkais and his interactions with them.I strongly believe that the story could have been more strongly improved with some good twist here and there but sadly its ...

The show is twelve episodes composed of a five minute sketch each.

Outside of the first episode that is... random silliness. Each episode Kiitarou runs into a yokai or two, we get a snippet of info about that specific yokai with some slapstick thrown in. Episode ends.

In a void this show is ok... But if you know what it is this will downgrade it to abysmal.

What it really is can be seen in the name and character design. This is a knockoff of a Japanese classic manga and anime (Gegege No Kitaro) down to the MC having the same clothes, hair cut, yokai radar ...
