    Talking Youkai (Monsters/creatures from japanese folklore) in the Osaka Arc

    Thought you guys might enjoy learning about some of the youkai we've seen.

    The Amikiri (net cutter): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:SekienAmikiri.jpg (The Gantz one is much, much larger than normal)

    Dorotabou (rice field mud-man): http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%B3%...94%B0%E5%9D%8A

    Ohaguro Bettari (Black tooth): http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%81%...81%9F%E3%82%8A
    (the "Real" Ohaguro Bettari didn't actually try to eat anyones eyes or brains, it just spooked you then stole your tea and ink to keep its teeth dyed).

    And our favorite rapists two victims:
    Rokurokubi (Stretching neck woman): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rokurokubi
    Futakuchi-onna (two-mouthed woman): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Futakuchi-onna

    Still looking for that frog. It's adorable. Kinda reminds be of the frogs in the Choju Giga

    True, it would be very interesting a book whit the detailed information of the Yokai.

    But at last we have these pages full of Yokais.

    http://www.obakemono.com/

    http://www.youkaimura.org/youkainame.htm

    Interesting pages.
