The lore behind Yokai is amazing. How it made it to American TV is actually amazing to me, considering it has a genuinely scary lore behind it.
I don’t know if the show is still on or if it ever got popular in the USA but I liked it the moment I heard of it. Being based on real mythology, I figured it _could_ have staying power.
In Oct 2015, the theme they used at the time got stuck in my head so I made a colored ASCII art movie out of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUnZFe-Xpuo
