There are never any pleasant yokai, are there?
Just like how there are never any pleasant fairies.

Well, the yokai seem to be the Japanese equivalent of the traditional European fae; or should we say the fae are European yokai?

It’s funny how Yokai is typically translated as demon now while fairies are “harmless” now.

Yeah. I think the Chinese word shen (which means something like 'supernatural being') also gets loosely translated as 'demon' these days.

I see it most often translated as ‘god’
