This is more a question about Japanese mythology/folklore, but this forum seems to be the closest in subject matter.

I was watching the anime Tokyo Majin with my wife and one of the characters referred to creatures called Moryo that ~"feed on corpses and other spirits."

Anyone know anything about these critters or where I might find other references to them?

Azuki?

I've got loads of books on Japanese mythology, folklore, and such and I've never come across these before.

Responding to this sounds like a job for Akaguma.

HEY AKAGUMA!!!! Where are you?

As I look around a bit more I've found a little bit...

I first found a nugget on Youkai world in the "ま" section under 魍魎.
Should have known the translators for the anime left out the last "u," so actually it's a "moryou."
That made the search results a little more productive.
For a start:

Very Happy

Anyone know where this place is?
I wanna go!!!!!!!!
