Experimenting with ideas for Halloween buttons n stuff for my Zazzle store (www.zazzle.com/Cattype) starting with my old friend Ghost the ghost.
I actually realized that this might be too small for a button. Well the crosshatching’s not that good, maybe it will be worth doing it again?😅👻

there’s this one obake whose name translates to something like ‘general teapot’ or ‘teapot samurai’ and it’s basically a bunch of haunted china that assembles itself into a china warrior and attacks you but for the life of me I cannot remember its japanese name. boo.

I believe you’re thinking of Seto Taisho. Here’s a picture of him from Yokai Attack: the Japanese Monster Survival Guide.

Yokai Attack is a fantastic book by the way. Highly Recommended. Packed with info. Fantastic illustrations.There’s actually a raffle for a free copy going on right now on Tokyo5 if you’re interested. (Ends Sept. 27, 2014)

You can also read about Seto Taisho here on Yokai.com. Another great resource for obake.

Actually it’s a makura gaeshi or “Pillow flipper”. It’s a yokai that steals people’s pillows while they sleep. Sometimes it will even move a sleeping person’s entire body so that their heads are where their feet should be.

The picture above is from the Yokai Daizukai, a book my Shigeru Mizuki showing the internal organs of various yokai and their magical properties. You can read more about it in this Pink Tentacle article.

You can also read more on Makura Gaeshi on Yokai.com and The Horror Tree

Neko-mata
猫又、猫叉、猫股 (ねこまた)
Forked Cat
From the now defunct Website Obakemono Project:
In some places when an old cat becomes a bake-neko, its tail is said to split in two, then it is called a neko-mata or “forked cat”. Like most bake-neko, neko-mata are unusually large cats, reportedly a meter and a half long minus the bifurcated tail, and often walk about comfortably on their hind feet. They are said to dance and manipulate the dead like puppets, and are associated with strange fires and other unexplainable occurances. Sometimes the tails of kittens were cut off as a precaution, as it was thought that if its tail couldn’t fork, a cat could not become a bakemono.
