The 20 Best Anime About Yokai

Updated 23 Jun 2019 8.0k votes 1.8k voters 47.4k views20 items

Yokai is a Japanese term that refers to spirits, demons, and other supernatural beings from Japanese folklore. Some of them are malevolent, some of them are good, but all of them have a chance of showing up in supernatural anime. Let's take a look at some of the best yokai anime out there.

The latest work by legendary director Kunihiko Ikuhara features a yokai story aimed at adults because according to Ikuhara, the genre was almost exclusively aimed at children. If the kappa themed anime is a little too bizarre for your tastes, you can check out Natsume's Book of Friends, a gentle and relaxing story about a teenage boy dedicated to giving yokai their freedom. Looking for something with a little more action? Try Yu Yu Hakusho, an anime that features countless battles between humans and yokai.
