•About this Yokai•
• Name: Sadahachi & "Red Babies" • Related Yokai: "Akaga no kai" 赤子の怪 • Date of appearance: 10th Day. • Description: Sadahachi & several squishy slimy babys that came from his swollen head.[Ino Mononoke Roku day 10/30]
• In the story: Heitaro's friend Sadahachi came over to visit while they where chatting in the front hall about the recent incidents, suddenly his friend complained of a headache, and his head began to swell up at an alarming rate, he knelt down apologetically and suddenly, his inflated head cracked open like an egg! Several slimy Red babies popped out and as they crawled over and onto to Heitaro, they merged into a gigantic slimy baby!! Heitaro tried to get them, but as he drew his sword, they and his friend suddenly vanished... After the 'incident' from a couple days before, Heitaro was mostly unphased by this, but the fact that the ghosts where pretending to be his good friends was becoming a headache in its own way...
"稲生物怪録" or "Ino Mononoke Roku" is a (supposedly, true?) story which takes place in Miyoshi, Hiroshima, during July of 1749 – in which 16 year old "Ino Heitaro" (& his friend Gonpachi) decide to play "Hyakumonogatari" (a game which involves telling 100 ghost stories.) as a test of courage to see which of them is the bravest! Soon after the two are visited by various ghosts, yokai and other supernatural phenomena, day & night for an entire 30 days!!! – [You can watch a telling of it here (with english subtitles)] – I'm going to try & gradually complete a yokai sticker for each day! – (Please note: I will be posting about them out of order & at my own pace.)
