<Summary of the new chapter “the final Nurarihyon edition”>
An case of an explosionexplosion occurred in the human world.
It may be the act of a terrorist bombing as the victim is an influential politician.
The politician was being entertained at a famous restaurant (Ryotei) at the time , and the person who was attending him was unknown, but there was information that someone with a red face was accompanying him…
On the other hand,
a letter from a human comes into the Yokai post
The letter says that they are in trouble because a big youkai is running rampant on a golf course development site.
Kitaro thought the yokai whose homes have been destroyed got angry and rampant. He also have mixed thoughts about a new golf course development project especially in this year of Reiwa?
What an nachronism isn’t it?
A guy approaches in front of Kitaro.
What is the aim of “the guy” who suddenly appeared on the front stage again ,breaking many years of silence?

I am very honored that Otsuka-san and Cho-san will be able to perform in this anime.
What kind of things Nurarihyon will come up with?
And how will Kitaro face them? In the new chapter, there will be more energy and scale, and it will be developed with a boost of modernity.
Please look forward to it.

Nurarihyon is the king of the Yokai …
That sort of image was actually formed through the anime “GeGeGe no Kitaro” after a long time!
Finally, Nurarihyon will also appear in the sixth season, which is being broadcast at the moment.

I think many of you know, but Otsuka’s father was Otsuka Chikao, who played the first and second runs of Rat Man( Nezumi Otoko)
Appearing in the anime “GeGeGe no Kitaro” for two generations with both the parents and children is only made possible because the anime’s history of over 50 years.
