The fifth episode of Kemono Jihen that came out last Sunday the 7th of February introduced Kabane and the other children to Mihai, a bored vampire secretly living in a room in their house. His presence provides comic relief, but there are sinister undertones as well, as it looks like his entertainment is more of interest to him than the children’s safety. 

Hopefully, Episode 6 will give us more information about him. Here’s everything you need to know before the episode is released:


Kemono Jihen Anime: What is it about?

Kemono Jihen

Kemono Jihen is a supernatural shōnen anime following Inugami, a detective specializing in the occult, who visits a Japanese village to rid it of the presumably supernatural threat that kills and mutilates animals.

There, he meets a young boy named Kabane, most commonly known as “Dorotabo” a Japanese slur to indicate his bad body odor. Because of this, the boy is shunned by his community. Realizing there’s something paranormal about the boy, Inugami – a supernatural being himself – takes Kabane to Tokyo where he’s the head of an agency that solves issues arising between kemono – part human, part animal entities – and humans.
