"Kitaro is just like any other boy, except for a few small differences: he only has one eye, his hair acts like an antenna that senses paranormal activity, his geta sandals are jet-powered, and he can blend into his surroundings like a chameleon. Oh, and he's a three hundred and fifty year old yokai, a spirit monster. With all the offbeat humor of an Addams family story, Kitaro is a light-hearted romp that blends the eerie with the comic"--Provided by publisher
