Dark Mark Soloff returns to Blurry Photos to discuss the ever-fascinating yokai! A refresher and some new stories of yokai await, as Dark Mark nerds out with Flora on Japanese lore. Not visited for over 230 episodes, David brings Mark back to the show to revisit this fun and interesting topic. Japanese lore is rich and deep, and the boys talk about the origins, evolutions, and history of the Japanese ghosts. They also tell about some specific and fun types, including their favorites and ones used often in pop culture. Three stories are also read, all from Lafcadio Hearn’s Kwaidan. Tune in and enjoy the silliness and spookiness from the land of the rising sun on this episode of Blurry Photos!
