Speaking of spooky skeletons (see our last post too), Ge Ge Ge No Kitaro by Shigeru Mizuki is one of my favorite horror manga and anime series-- click HERE to learn more about it-- and today's wonderfully detailed gashapon post (aka a Japanese vending machine toy that comes in a plastic capsule) documents the classic moment when everyone's favorite supernatural yokai kid, Kitaro, meets a terrifying Gashadokuro-- aka a giant starving skeleton!
This ten piece, snap together scene may look giant in these photos, but it's actually only a few inches high, and superbly designed just like all of the other toys in this series-- a few more of which I will post here over the summer occasionally to show you! For now, here's the instruction sheet and legend that also comes inside the plastic capsule with the toy pieces:
Thank you again to the super lovely Slaylien for hooking me up with these incredibly fun toys. And find out more about the ghastly giant Gashadokuro by CLICKING HERE!
