After roughly 500 photosets (500 x 10 = 5000 animated GIFs), I’ve decided to take a short break or sorts. Tokumonster first opened in March of 2013, and there has been at least one update per day since.

During my hiatus, I will be updating my ignored blog Moon Healing. It is quite a task to actively manage six tumblrs at once while working full-time.

I will return shortly so no need to unfollow me.

If you have any questions, drop me an ask.

  • Ushioni (牛鬼; ox demon), or gyuki, is a general term for several horned, bovine-like creatures in Japanese folklore. An example is a giant sea monster that lives off the coast of Shimane Prefecture.
  • An ushioni is used as the protective symbol in the Uwajima Ushioni Festival held in July.
  • Ushioni briefly reappeared in the Kakuranger finale.
  • This monster’s footage was not used during the third season of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. However, Ushioni, dubbed “Hunghorn,” appeared in Power Rangers Lost Galaxy.
