It is with great sadness that I must inform everyone of the closure of our streaming section. With new US copyright laws coming into effect it simply is no longer in our best interest to continue offering this service.

What does that mean for JustDubs?

We will be continuing this site as a normal anime community. We will be focusing on anime news, discussions, reviews, entertainment, events, our forum, clubs, social media, podcasts, monthly calls, Discord, Chatango and so much more.

I want to thank everyone for their continued support over the years. Our staff, current and former, for their tireless dedication. And to our members for making us your choice for English dubbed anime. Each and every one of you helped make this community something special and I will always cherish that.

Japanese Mythology & Folklore: Yokai - Chōchin obake



Article by BK-201

Paper Lantern Ghost

提灯お化け
ちょうちんおばけ

TRANSLATION: paper lantern ghost

APPEARANCE: When a paper lantern, or a chōchin, reaches an advanced age, it sometimes becomes a chōchin obake. The paper splits along one of its wooden ribs, forming a gaping mouth with a wild, lolling tongue. One or two eyes pop out of the upper half of the lantern, and occasionally arms or legs may sprout from its body as well.

BEHAVIOR: Like the karakasa-kozō, it rarely causes physical harm, preferring simply to surprise and scare humans, laughing and rolling its large tongue and big eyes at guests in the home. Occasionally, power onryō have been known to disguise themselves as chōchin obake: a case of one of the most dangerous supernatural entities masquerading as one of the most comical and harmless.
