"ONIBI, a comic book about the invisible spirits haunting the Japanese countryside"

[translation:

"By Cécile Brun & Olivier Pichard (Atelier Sento)

Hidden on the edge of a country trail or in the shadow of a temple, Japanese spirits, foxes, tanuki and other yokai look out for the lost traveler in hopes of playing tricks on him. Cécile and Olivier, freshly installed by the sea of ​​Japan in Niigata, buy an old device a little special supposed to print these spirits on the film. In their quest to take pictures, they portray a Japan in balance between two worlds.

Despite the modernization of the country, the Japanese still often take the ghost stories very seriously. The stories of yokai and other spirits remain very present and anchored in popular folklore." ]
