Toei Animation’s sixth TV anime of the franchise will air on Fuji TV in Japan Sundays at 9 a.m., starting on April 1 which is this upcoming Sunday. The supernatural series began as a manga in 1959 until 1964 with 15 combined volumes under the title Hakaba Kitaro.
These volumes became the focal point and template for what the late Shigeru Mizuki's manga mixture of ghost tribes, ghouls and other Japanese mythology has become. The series centers on a young Yokai Kitaro who strives for peace between the human world and the Yokai world.
