Haunted dolls have been such a big phenomenon for many scary and spooky stories all over the world. We are so familiar with the stories of Robert, Annabelle, Chucky, and many others that come from the United States of America and some of them are just made up stories to scare people.
Believe it or not, Japan has one of the scariest haunted doll stories that really happened in the real world. The particular spooky and cringe-worthy horror story mentioned is actually about a doll named ‘Okiku’ that allegedly grows human hair after her owner who loves her very much died.
According to the real story, this particular doll was bought in Sapporo by a 17-year-old Eikichi Suzuki in the year 1918 for his 2-year-old sister named Okiku. He was visiting the area for a marine exhibit, but upon seeing the doll in a shop window, he knew at once that the doll needed to be bought and given to his sister. Based on the appearance, the doll stood about 40cm tall and was dressed in a traditional kimono.
The hair was black and cut to about shoulder length, in a traditional style. The eyes were piercing, like black beads pressed into the life-like flesh of the face. When Eikichi returned home he presented the doll to his little sister then she fell in love with it immediately. The doll became Okiku’s favorite toy and it would seem to be her best friend. Okiku played with her doll every day and soon gave it the same name as herself, ‘Okiku’. The doll would never be out of Okiku’s sight.
Unfortunately in the year 1919, Okiku passed away after a severe fever. She was only three years old. The doll was to be buried along with Okiku, but due to some unforeseen circumstance, the doll was never placed with Okiku in her final resting place. The doll was instead placed on the family’s altar, in commemoration of their daughter.
Sometime later, the Suzuki family noticed that the doll’s hair was getting longer. It once had a traditional shoulder-length cut with neat ends, but now the doll had hair reaching down towards the waist and the ends were more random in length. Because of that, the family believed that the spirit of their own dead daughter inhabited the doll.
The family had the hair tested in the lab. The lab people said that it was indeed human hair. In the year of 1983, the Suzuki’s moved to a different town and they have placed the haunted doll at the Mannenji Temple, where it has remained ever since. As time passed by, the hair continues to grow longer. Every year, the people of Japan hold a ceremony there, in memory of Okiku where they trim the doll’s hair. Nobody had ever been able to explain how the hair grew. But at the lab, they were able to find out that the hair belongs to a young child and that might be Okiku.
Are You A Dragon Ball Fans? Here Are Interesting Facts About Goku’s Family
Undoubtedly, the Dragon Ball anime is one of the anime that has become a phenomenon until it is very famous all over the world. Let’s just say everywhere, of course many people know about the anime series.
Produced by Toei Animation, Dragon Ball was first adapted into an anime series starting in 1986. Interestingly, Dragon Ball was also made into several films that must be entertaining.
However, did you know that there are some interesting facts related to the family of Dragon Ball’s main character, Goku? Let’s look at these facts:
5) Each Family Member In Goku’s Family Has Died Once
Did you know, every member of the Goku family has died at least once? His mother, Gine, died when the planet Vegeta exploded and his father, Bardock, died when he was devastated by a Frieza supernova attack. His adoptive father, Grandpa Gohan, met an unexpected death when Goku transformed into the Oozaru (Great Ape) form and stepped on it.
His brother, Raditz, and himself fell victim to Piccolo’s attack in the Saiyan Saga arc. ChiChi is transformed into an egg by Buu while Goku’s two sons Gohan and Goten explode with Earth. His grandson, Pan, died when Frieza blew up the Earth at the end of the Resurrection F movie.
4) Goku’s Parent, Bardock And Gine Were In Love
For those who do not know, men and women of the Saiyan race only choose a partner for breeding purposes, and the relationship seems to only last until their survival is guaranteed. Gine, a woman with low powered and gentle, has been labeled as an outsider in Saiyan culture.
However, her relationship with Bardock is genuine and rare among all Saiyan couples as they are both married and still in love, not just for breeding purposes.
3) Goku Married Into Royalty
Many are unaware of the fact that although Ox-King (Goku’s father-in-law) only ruled a small kingdom consisting of Fire Mountain, he remained king and by definition made ChiChi a princess and Goku, a prince. So basically, like Vegeta, who is a royal relative but was born in it, Goku is also technically royalty when married to ChiChi.
2) Gine (Goku’s Mother), A Saiyan Who Did Not Fight
Saiyans are a race of warriors who have a high ability to fight and enjoy battle or destruction. Although Bardock is a fighter, Gine is his polar opposite because he does not have high enough fighting strength and is not interested in combat like the average Saiyan.
Instead, Gine, with other Saiyan people like herself, was assigned to do rough work, among which she participated in the distribution of meat. While it may not be a job that attracts everyone’s attention as a fighter, it is still an important job given the amount of food eaten by the Saiyan race.
1) Goku Not Interested With His Real Parents
Born on Earth under the care of Grandpa Gohan, Goku grew up knowing only Gohan as his parents. When the question was asked why he never questioned Vegeta about his true legacy, Goku’s answer was that he did not care about the matter.
His perception of the Saiyans also differs in two arcs when his own brother kidnaps his son, Nappa kills his friends and Vegeta, continuing the murder on Earth. So now Goku considers himself a Saiyan from Earth. His identity is linked to his humble beginnings on Earth rather than the planet Vegeta.

What Lupin Is About?
Lupin is inspired by Maurice Leblanc’s gentleman thief that is Arsène Lupin. The show follows the adventures of Assane Diop, a master of disguise and all manner of civilized criminal behavior, as he tries to clear his own father’s name. Assane and also his father that is Babakar move to Paris from Senegal looking for a better life. Babakar gets work as a chauffeur with the wealthy Pellegrini family.
The head of the family named Hubert is autocratic and brusque, his wife named Anne is kinder and his daughter, Juliette shows a teasing interest in the 14-year-old Assane. When a fabulous necklace that once adorned the doomed queen, Marie Antoinette, and now belonging to the Pellegrini family goes missing, Babakar is suspected. Even without hard evidence, Babakar is put in prison where he hangs himself, and Assane is orphaned.
Twenty-five years later, the queen’s necklace comes up for auction at the Louvre and who should be in on the proceedings but none other than Assane. The necklace is stolen and the police are running in circles trying to find the thief who apparently spirited away the necklace under the highest security. Though police captain Laugier and Lieutenant Sofia follow conventional leads, their colleague, Guedira makes the Lupin connection.
What Can Be Said About Lupin?
It is such a classic heist-movie device that could get repetitive or even predictable but luckily, Lupin with its unique mercifully short five-episode first season and its endlessly charming leading man, executes each reveals with a high degree of finesse. Getting fooled is half the fun with a show like this.
Lupin has the ability to trick an audience with bits of narrative deception and its not too stressful sense of mischief, the show also boasts an intriguing literary backstory that makes it especially pleasurable to dig into. It is proven that Lupin isn’t dark, gritty, or disturbing. But it’s not frivolous, either.
This particular show has it all with a plot twist that will keep you on the edge of your seat and eagerly wanting more at the very end. Lupin is such a perfect weekend watch.

“Justice League” Snyder’s Cut Will Be A 4-Hour Movie – Zack Snyder
Since the original release of the Justice League movie, fans have been petitioning and eagerly waiting to see the one and only Zack Snyder’s original vision for DC’s favorite group of superheroes.
Finally, the director himself has confirmed that fans will be able to watch only one four-hour long movie of the superheroes, instead of a four-part miniseries as was previously reported. That’s twice as long as a normal movie.
Back in the month of August, it was revealed that the highly anticipated Zack Snyder Cut would span across all the four one-hour long episodes but it seems like the director has decided to go in a different direction. Zack confirmed the four-hour-long movie when he responded to a fan who asked him to clarify if Justice League would be either a mini-series or a “one-shot watch”.
The director then replied with a “one-shot” for the question.

The director also continued to confirm the four-hour-long movie when another fan asked if the long movie would be four-hours either with or without the credits, to which Zack Synder replied with a simple “without”.
