The Obakemono Project

The Obakemono Project: a Gaijin’s Guide to The Fantastic Folk Monsters of Japan. In Japanese, O is a prefix denoting respect, and bakemono literally means a changed thing – something perverted and altered and moved beyond its natural state – a monster. An amusing site, with illustrations, related monsters and their names (in Kanji and Hiragana too). Even if you are not interested in the issue, go there to see the pretty illustrations.(via MetaFilter)
