"Kitaro and the Great Tanuki War features adventures of Shigeru Mizuki's beloved yokai boy. In the epic title story, Kitaro battles the tanuki, a Japanese animal that features prominently in the country's yokai legends. The furry beasts draw on the power of the blood moon to awaken the monstrous catfish that lives in the depths of the Earth. The twisting of the catfish causes earthquakes that threaten to destroy all of Japan. With his yokai allies captured, Kitaro is the only one left who can take on the great tanuki and his army. Will he be up for the challenge? This volume contains two additional stories about traditional folklore monsters as seen through Mizuki's whimsical and genre-defining lens. In "Mokumokuren," Kitaro faces off against a paper screen come to life, while "The Obebenuma Yokai" introduces a grisly swamp creature. Kitaro and the Great Tanuki War showcase the golden age of Gegege no Kitaro series from the 1960s - and have never appeared in English before. D+Q's Kitaro series celebrates Mizuki's expert blend of folklore, comedy, and horror, sharing the all-ages stories that made Kitaro one of Japan's most beloved characters. This kid-friendly edition also features a "History of Kitaro" essay by award-winning series translator and Mizuki scholar Zack Davisson."--Provided by publisher
