Hakaba Kitaro 墓場鬼太郎 Episode 1 Screen Caps
Minor spoiler. It also shows his father, the last of the Ghost tribe morph from a giant mummy to an eyeball man the size of a person's thumb.
This anime is based on the manga by Mizuki Shigeru that was first released in 1959. According to what I've read this show is supposed to be closer to the manga that the other five anime adaptations that have already been produced the first starting in 1969 and the latest in April, 2007. I'd never had an opportunity to see any of the other anime versions or to read any of the manga just the L.A. movie which I enjoyed. The visual style of the anime is striking; the art director is Kurahashi Takashi who also handled the art on Mononoke which this show's artwork is reminiscent of. That's another show which I loved for its stylish artwork, just take a look at the screen shots below. It's really hard to judge an anime by its introductory episode but so far I'm looking forward to seeing more of this show and meeting more of the yokai which populate its world. Give this show a try if you like Hanada Shounen Shi or the Adams Family.
