This book presents a free interpretation of a selection of yokai, fantastic creatures from Japanese traditional legends and tales. Pranksters or bad spirits, they especially take the shape of animals and monsters. Their presence would explain why some phenomenon happen, as well as strange events or torments. Some others were humans who went through an irreversible metamorphosis after too big of an emotional shock.

The title was chosen as a reference to the Night parade of one hundred demons, the Hyakki Hyago, a belief that every year, during a summer night, yokai would swarm into the streets in the form of a huge procession or of a terrifying insurrection.
