But when a magicalö ball of power ends up in the wrong hands, Kitaro must rewcover it or both worlds could fall into grave danger.
Kitaro and the millennium curse
Kitaro is called upon by his human friend Kaede Hiramoto to help investigate a series of mysterious disappearances that have occurred in the human world. They soon discover that the mystery has something to do with a forbidden love affair that happened more than one thousand years ago and the evil yokai who is responsible for imprisoning the doomed lovers.
