Gegege no Kitarō 4 (Toei, 1996-98)

   Home/Change Series

This gallery includes cels and gengas from the Toei's Kitaro 4, the last cel-based avatar. The character development remained much the same from the 1980s series, but some fine details in character design, along with significantly sharper condition, identify these as Kitaro 4 items.

The anime remains a favorite in Japan, and I was surprised to find that this gallery was the first one on Rubberslug to feature art from any of its versions. Benten's Place, however, now has the title cel for Episode 15 of this series.

I hope that this preliminary collection, along with the galleries devoted to Series Three and Series Five, will help give this series some of the attention it deserves among English-speaking anime fans.
