Even though Gegege no Kitaro is an really old anime series, i've never had any contact with Kitaro series before this 2018 version, even if since 1968 it has a new remake airing each decade...

At first, to a person who never heard about Gegege no Kitaro, the anime seems silly and adding the children rate, most people would not even give a chance to this one, but thank God i gave that chance... because
considering it is a children rated anime, which is mostly to introduce the yokai culture to the new generation, this anime is really amazing.

Instead of treat Yokais as something silly read more

I grew up with GGGnK and am very familiar with the series so many things are expected, however, this adaption is keeping things surprisingly interesting for various reasons. Viewers should be going in knowing that this is an Anime centered around Japanese folklore that introduces new yokai [usually] every week.
Even as a G-rated show, GGGnK loves to see how much it can get away with. To avoid spoilers, I'll leave it at that for now. While most people see the G rating and think the show's for kids, it's really not. Many will see a monster-of-the-week Anime, but it's much more than that. Every read more

Do you like anime with many different myth monsters on it? Do you like anime which has alot action and boss-like situations? Or do you like anime with dark elements but still entertaining and somehow with moral lessons? Then Gegege no Kitarou is the right anime for you.

This 2018 version will show you how good Gegege no Kitarou anime is. Since in this series, it takes place into the 21st century which is quite different from the older versions. The existence of yokai is forgotten in this generation which results alot of disastrous phenomena in the human world. But there is one yokai who avoid read more

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. However, the show isn't afraid to delve into much darker themes which have produced some great episodes that I would see myself going back and re-watching.

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 read more
