Review of Kitaro by Shigeru Mizuki

Pros: Super creative, beautiful comic style

Cons: A little predictable, I guess. But who cares?!

Buy? Yes, I strongly recommend it.

Kitaro is a Japanese manga that's great for both kids and adults - my son and I are both crazy about it. Kitaro is a Yokai (a magical person like a vampire is), and is a guardian in the Yokai world. His father is actually his left eyeball (!!) and can talk to him and jump out of its socket and help him out from time to time.

Kitaro is always helping out those in need, seeking revenge against bad people, and also keeping an eye on his trickster friend Nezumi Otoko.

Worth buying just to peruse the amazing drawings of all of the different mythological creatures.

I paid $24.95

Buy from Amazon
