3. Zashiki-Warashi – Volume 4
She is the pure spirit and a really nice timid girl. She can be said as a friendly spirit.
As told in folklore handed down from the Tohku region of Japan (the northern part of the main island of Honshu), Zashiki-Warashi are ghost or guardian spirits of a house that take the form of children. According to the legend, if the Zashiki-Warashi leaves a house, sorrow will befall it. Recently the legend has taken on a “poltergeist” feel with evil Zashiki-Warashi taking over traditional Japanese houses and terrorizing the residents.
