Vixens and Tanuki: Trickster Spirits in Japanese Lore
Hosted by Jasmine Pues
Tricksters: you never can be sure which side they're on, if any. The kitsune and tanuki spirits (or, more properly, yokai) of Japan are particular examples covered in this panel, ranging from traditional lore/legends about them, to modern entertainment (anime/manga/graphic novels) and even cultural cues that get mentioned even when a spirit/yokai is not there. Prepare yourself!
