    1. Yeah, drowning is never a thing I pretend to not be scared of. The mere idea of watery death, even though I love swimming, is horrifying.


    1. Yeah, she is a little bit more scary, though I love, love, love Ursula. I think it’s simply the fact that Nure Onna works with other demons, and I really don’t like the idea of dying from an aquatic vampire bite, haha.

  1. Fascinating monster woman. I can see why you enjoy researching this topic, and it makes one wonder how the stories got started. Perhaps past parents inventing bedtime stories! The illustration is super also. I’m definitely intrigued to go back and read stories that I have missed.

    1. If you do go back, I hope you enjoy the other ones! 🙂 Yeah, a lot of these stories have the feel of weary travelers in taverns, passing the cold or rainy nights between destinations. It would be really interesting to know how they came about!

    It’s time for another female monster post over at Part-Time Monster! Today I talk about the origins and deceptions of Nure Onna, Snake Woman of Kyushu and coastal areas.


  3. Hi Alex,
    Another great monster.
    The more of these Monday posts we all write, the more I realize just how many female monsters there are. They come from every corner in the world, and most of them are unheard of in popular culture. It’s mind boggling! We never seem to run out of new ones to talk about.

    1. Thanks, Robin! And yeah… I actually discovered another female monster while researching Nure Onna! I’m excited to learn more about her, too. I think there are a lot of monsters in general (male and creature-based too), but having the narrow field for this series has allowed us to really dig into a specific range of terror. 🙂 It’s a lot of fun!
