Kaonashi-chan and fatherhood

Kaonashi, which means “no-face” in Japanese, is a melancholic soul that appears in Spirited Away.

It is a meat-lover, by choice.

In the Japanese culture, there is a word that perfectly describes the design of the Kaonashi character. “Kimokawaii” refers to something that is grotesque to the point of being endearingly beautiful.

Very Kaonashi indeed.
