Japanese Folklore: Youkai

Post by roanxxx on Sat Mar 09, 2013 11:38 am

Actually hindi ko talaga balak gumawa ng thread about these youkai's since I'm not fond of folklores or legends XD
Pero may nag-suggest kasi Smile

(source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Y%C5%8Dkai)

Yōkai (妖怪?, ghost, phantom, strange apparition) are a class of supernatural monsters in Japanese folklore. The word yōkai is made up of the kanji for "mysterious" and "weird".[citation needed] Yōkai range eclectically from the malevolent to the mischievous, or occasionally bring good fortune to those who encounter them. Often they possess animal features (such as the Kappa, which is similar to a turtle, or the Tengu which has wings), other times they can appear mostly human, some look like inanimate objects and others have no discernible shape. Yōkai usually have a spiritual supernatural power, with shapeshifting being one of the most common. Yōkai that have the ability to shapeshift are called obake.
Japanese folklorists and historians use yōkai as "supernatural or unaccountable phenomena to their informants". In the Edo period, many artists, such as Toriyama Sekien, created yōkai inspired by folklore or their own ideas, and in the present, several yōkai created by them (e.g. Kameosa and Amikiri, see below) are wrongly considered as being of legendary origin.

May napanuod ako na video eh. Ang mga youkai daw eh mga gamit na pag tapos nilang gamitin hindi na pinapahalagahan. Nagkakaroon daw ng spirit daw nag rerevenge.
