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?

This anime is nothing really new. The story is fair, the art is quite nice the ending songs for each of the episodes so far are pretty good and the characters are moderately developed. Considering its about a 4 min anime and thats about to be expected.
But what I like about this anime is that its soothing. Nothing really major happens and you do not really have to think or look into the story. You can sit by for the 4 min and enjoy the peacefulness.
The story is about a boy, his zashiki warashi companion and how he spends his days meeting and interacting ...

Mixed Feelings
The title of this series of anime shorts speaks for itself – it’s a show about a boy named Kiitaro, and the memories that he makes meeting lots of different Youkai. The first episode of the show has a slightly different feel, but the other episodes all involve Kiitaro meeting some Youkai and having interactions with them which reveal something about their nature.

The show is light-hearted and comic in tone, with Kiitaro ending up in some silly situations either from misunderstanding the youkai, from the actions of the youkai themselves, or his main companion the Zashiki Warashi Suzu.

I will say that there’s a surprising amount ...

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

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 ...
