This essay gives an engagement with Japanese manga and anime through Noriko Reider’s discussion of changing representations of oni, or demonic characters from different dimensions that provide a complex array of challenges and opportunities for the protagonists with whom they interact. The oni have their roots in Buddhist myths of supernatural beings who come from hell to terrify wicked mortals.

Keywords:   Oni, Demons, Buddhism, Japan, Manga
