Anatomical Diagrams Of Japanese Monsters

The nerdy medical-style illustrations in this gallery reveal what makes these Japanese Yokai (mythological monsters) and Daikaiju (movie monsters) tick.

From their grumbly tummies to their rather large bones, study them well because knowing your enemy inside and out can help even the odds if one of these hungry critters comes to your town looking for lunch.

Note: You may remember some of these cool illustrations first appeared on Neatorama back in 2009, when Miss C posted this article (link). She added an edit that the drawings are "from An Anatomical Guide to Monsters by Shoji Otomo with illustrations by Shogo Endo, from 1967".

What's cool about this new gallery link is that it features critters that weren't in the original gallery, specifically Yokai monsters, so take a gander and get a new lesson in creature anatomy!
