GeGeGe isn't a show for most people. It's long and unless you're really into Japanese yokai and folktales you most likely won't like this series that much. However it still is really good and fun to watch.

This series is a mixture of a sort of overall main plot of trying to get humans and yokai to get along, while also having many sub stories that take a few episodes to just being episodic of one episode stories. In all, each of the stories were interesting with few exceptions, and have some relevance to the main plot. I both laughed, felt extremely sad, and really read more

Taking this one out of the queue is an odd feeling. To have something so constant in your life for so long to be gone. It's making cry thinking about it being over honestly. Kitaro was something I'd never even heard of until this anime was announced. Had not a clue it was the 6th Kitaro or anything about it other than dealing with yokai. Just saw that something was replacing Dragonball Super at its time so why the hell not see what could possibly have the prestige to pull that off.

Didn't think I'd get this invested in the show really. Kitaro with Daddy read more

I just finished this series last night and after it having been in my list for 2 years, waking up and realizing that it would no longer be there wounded me deeper than I ever thought it would.

I started this series thinking it would be more of a slice of life. An anime to calm down with during a period in my life that was less than stellar. But that wasn't exactly the case. The anime can make you feel better, but there are arcs and episodic episodes alike that will break your heart. And as perhaps the masochist I am, I craved more!

Shows like this don't tend to get much attention. On MAL, we tend to pay more attention to the anime aimed at an older audience, and the only way a series aimed at a younger audience tends to break through is if it was part of our own childhoods like Pokemon or Digimon. So by that standard, Gegege no Kitaro 2018 is astonishing for even finding an audience in the first place. And part of that is the fact that while it's a children's anime ostensibly, it has plenty here for an older audience as well.

Gegege no Kitaro is a very episodic show. It read more
