Japanese monsters know how to party

Halloween is pretty much a non-event over here, but it's a good excuse to make a post like this. XD

Check out this very creative stick puppet animation by manga artist Masakazu Amahisa!



It features traditional Japanese monsters such as the blue-skinned Konaki-jiji (monster baby with the face of an old man), Hitodama (fireballs), Kyonshi (Chinese vampire), Onyudo (shapeshifting monk), Jizo (guardian deity of children), Noppera-bo (faceless ghost), Rokurokubi (long-necked monster), Kappa (water imp), Hoichi the Earless, and many others.
