Kitaro by Shigeru Mizuki( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Shigeru Mizuki's Kitaro : the birth of Kitaro by Shigeru Mizuki( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Birth of Kitaro collects seven of Shigeru Mizuki's early, and beloved, Kitaro stories, making them available for the first time in English, in an all-new, kid-friendly format. These stories are from the golden era of the late 1960s, when Gegege no Kitaro truly hit its stride as an all-ages supernatural series. Mizuki's Kitaro stories are both timelessly relevant and undeniably influential, inspiring a decades-long boom in stories about yokai, Japanese ghosts, and monsters. "Kitaro's Birthday" reveals the origin story of the half-yokai boy Kitaro and his tiny eyeball father, Medama Oyaji. "Neko Musume versus Nezumi Otoko" is the first of Mizuki's stories to feature the popular recurring character Neko Musume, a little girl who transforms into a cat when she gets angry or hungry. Other stories in The Birth of Kitaro draw heavily from Japanese folklore, with Kitaro taking on legendary Japanese yokai like the Nopperabo and Makura Gaeshi, and fighting the monstrous recurring villain Gyuki
Shigeru Mizuki's Kitaro by Shigeru Mizuki( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kitaro Meets Nurarihyon is the second volume in the adventures of Shigeru Mizuki's bizarre yokai boy Kitaro and his gaggle of otherworldly friends. These seven stories date from the golden age of Gegege no Kitaro, when Mizuki had perfected the balance of folklore, comedy, and horror that made Kitaro one of Japan's most beloved characters. -- Drawn & Quarterly website
NonNonBa by Shigeru Mizuki( Book )

25 editions published between 1977 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tegneserie. Within the pages of NonNonBa, Mizuki explores the legacy left him by his childhood explorations of the spirit world, explorations encouraged by his grandmother, a grumpy old woman named NonNonBa. NonNonBa is a touching work about childhood and growing up, as well as a fascinating portrayal of Japan in a moment of transition. NonNonBa was the first manga to win the Angoulême Prize for Best Album. Much like its namesake, NonNonBa is at once funny and nostalgic, firmly grounded

Shigeru Mizuki's Kitaro by Shigeru Mizuki( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kitaro the Vampire Slayer is the fifth volume in Shigeru Mizuki's bizarre stories about a yokai boy and his entourage of otherworldly friends. One of the most popular Kitaro tales, the title story pits Kitaro and his family against a Beatles-inspired mop-topped, guitar-playing vampire named Erit and his castle of horrors. In an unexpected twist--spoiler alert!--Kitaro meets his demise, but even death is hardly enough to keep our favorite yokai boy down."
Opération Mort by Shigeru Mizuki( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in French and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fin 1943, une troupe de l'armée impériale japonaise débarque sur l'île de Papouasie-Nouvelle Guinée. Les engagés (pour la plupart de jeunes recrues) font alors l'apprentissage de la survie dans cette contrée d'apparence paradisiaque : pêcher, construire des abris, éviter les pièges de la jungle... Et puis un jour, l'ennemi est là. Les combats qui se succèdent n'ont rien d'héroïque, ils s'imposent aux soldats résignés, finissant par ne devenir qu'un aspect d'une vie quotidienne dominée par la quête de la nourriture ; les hommes disparaissent un à un, c'est la guerre dans sa brutalité ordinaire. Les rares survivants ont plus à faire avec la faim et les maladies qu'avec l'ennemi, qui est une moins grande menace pour eux que les officiers lorsqu'ils se mettent en tête de " sauver dignement l'honneur de l'armée et de la patrie "... En grande partie autobiographique, Opération Mort voit Mizuki déployer tout son humour et son art de la simplicité pour dépeindre avec une implacable vérité la guerre au quotidien. Un chef-d'oeuvre qui vous prend à la gorge et dit mieux que les discours mélodramatiques la bêtise universelle des va-t-en-guerre
