SekienNinmenjuI need a separate category for “demons I could not fit into either Deadly Wish or Deadly Flowers.” Like the jinmenju–peaches with faces. They hang upon the boughs of trees and giggle at you as you walk past.

That’s it. That’s all they do. If they laugh too hard they fall off the branches. I guess you might eat them then (they are said to be sweet), although I don’t know who would want to.

Not exactly terrifying, but there’s just something about them. I wish I’d had my characters in an orchard at twilight so that peaches could laugh at them.
