Welcome to the current era, somewhere around the 20th year of the 21st century, where humanity has completely forgotten about the existence of youkai (demons).

There are phenomenon frequently occurring that science cannot explain, and adults are going every which way as rumors fly wild.

A 13-year-old girl named Mana has decided to do something about it and writes a letter and puts it in the youkai mailbox. What appears in front of Mana with the clip clop sounds echoing of his geta (Japanese wooden clogs) is none other than Kitarou of GeGeGe.

Characters & Voice Actors List


Voice Actor: Miyuki Sawashiro

Kitarou is the only survivor of the Ghost Tribe which is the most powerful family amongst all youkai (demons). Normally, he can be found living together with his father Medama no Oyaji in the GeGeGe Forest. He tries as much as possible to not be dragged into human affairs, but whenever Youkai do cause incidents, he is notified by his youkai mailbox by the arrival of a letter. He then sets off for the human world with a clip clop of his geta (Japanese wooden clogs).

Medama Oyaji

Voice Actor: Masako Nozawa

Medama Oyaji is a youkai of the Ghost Tribe. Due to a former illness, he all but wasted away. However, due to his strong feelings for the young Kitarou, he was able to come back to life as a Medama youkai. As his father, he looks after Kitarou warmly and doles advice as necessary. He is usually found whenever Kitarou is enjoying baths in various kinds of tea cups. He is wise and knows a great amount about youkai.

Nezumi Otoko

Voice Actor: Toshio Furukawa

Nezumi is half-youkai and half-human. He loves money and power, and so he prioritizes money-making more than anything. Sometimes he is an ally of Kitarou, and other times, he is an enemy. He is a liar, a traitor, and is bathed in desire. Whenever he is involved with shady business dealings, he always causes problems, but at the end of the day, he is always saved by Kitarou. He professes that he is Kitarou’s best friend.

Neko Musume

Voice Actor: Umeka Shouji

Neko Musume is a friend of Kitarou’s and a cat youkai. She is hiding an incredibly adept fighting ability behind the façade of a beautiful girl whom no one would ever suspect. Whenever Nezumi Otoko does something bad for the sake of money, her eyes change color swiftly and she attacks him. For the most part, she feigns a cool, uninterested act towards everyone.

Mana Inuyama

Voice Actor: Yukio Fujii

Mana is a first-year middle school student. Her curiosity is double that of a normal person and she is fascinated with Kitarou and company who hail from a world different from the human world. Kitarou tends to view her as a bother, but she also can be the necessary insight to link all of the clues together.

Sunakake Babaa

Voice Actor: Mayu Tanaka

Babaa is a youkai who looks like an old woman. She has a special youkai power that allows her to control sand at will. She can attack enemies as well as heal her allies. She looks after everyone well regardless of whether they are human or youkai. She is adept at current technology and is like a reliable mother figure to Kitarou and company.

Konaki Jijii

Voice Actor: Bin Shimada

Jijiii is a youkai who looks like an old man. He lures in his foes with a crying voice that sounds like a baby, and then transforms his body into a heavy rock and crushes them. He loves alcohol and is always drunk which leads to Sunakake Baaba scolding him.


Voice Actor: Bin Shimada

Nurikabe is a giant wall youkai. They do not speak much, but can stretch out their body to form a protective wall to protect Kiratou when necessary. They also can squash foes as well, and they are a gentle, powerful, and reliable ally.

Ittan Momen

Voice Actor: Kappei Yamaguchi

Ittan is a white fabric youkai. With its long and thin body, it flutters and dances in the sky allowing Kitarou to ride on it and fly through the sky. It’s a woman-loving Kyuushuu youkai, so whenever it sees a girl, it goes and tries to pick her up.
