About The Yokai King

The Yokai King™ is an upcoming American television series starring Shin Koyamada.  The series created by Mark Hattori is based on the famous Japanese supernatural folklore characters called Yōkai mainly filmed in various locations of Okinawa, Japan in 2014. The show is already shot for 22-minute per episode and 13 episodes in total entirely in English.

Plot

Yokai are a class of supernatural creatures that have long held a prominent place in Japanese folklore. They come in a variety of forms – from hideous demons to mischievous creatures to heroes with supernatural powers. They are sometimes dangerous to humans since Yokai are not restrained by the laws of nature and those who are not already part animal, have the ability to shape shift.  The legend goes that Ippei(Shin Koyamada) was found by his foster father in a coconut shell on a beach. Although he was brought up as a normal boy, Ippei could see nature’s spirits, including Kijimuna invisible to human eyes. As with many legendary heroes Ippei was initially unaware of his supernatural talents and therefore his destiny.
