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.

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (16/97 eps)
For a child, I can see this show being one of the best on TV. As an adult, however, the episodes are usually enjoyable but can be a bit hit or miss.

I never grew up with Gegege no Kitarou so the entire idea of yokai was new to me. Though, that never decreased how much I liked the show or my understanding. On the other hand, the older watchers are more than likely watching it (at least in some ...
