  1. it looks awesome, but are you not afraid about comparisions with samurai jack?

  2. Liam Scanlan Says:

    The cartoon seems to have a ghost theme judging by the fact that he died in those images and it’s set in Japan. I know one other cartoon that is ghost-themed and is set in Japan:www.youtube.com/watch?v=9boVDep-diw
    The cartoon is very well known in Japan thus spawning spinoff incarnations and two live action movies

    • Hi Liam,

      Thanks for sharing Gegege-no-kitaro! (I love Yokai monsters!)

      Actually this isn’t a ghost story… we were inspired more by Tezuka’s DORORO (amongst other things) which began as a manga then became an animated series (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NcjZqj58RM) & more recently also a live action movie.

    • Actually, he’s not a ghost – he gets a second chance at life. It’s more ninja-based and inspired by my devotion to the 1960’s ‘The Samurai’ series I used to watch as a kid, Tezuka’s Dororo, and Keith’s Rainville excellent Ninja 80 site

      Thanks! The link you posted was fun, but ‘Dead Ringo’ isn’t really Yokai based at all
