1996 Anime

Kuro-Kamikiri awakens sometime after Kihatsu had been released, having been sealed within a kokeshi doll as well. He fights her within a barber shop, but she manages to defeat him and escape, leaving him injured. He is brought by Kitarō and friends to the Yōkai Apartment, where he is taken care off. When he wakes, he explains his situation and his relation with Kihatsu. However he is still weak, so Kitarō and friends, sans Ittan-Momen and Yobuko who lack hair, decide to let him take some of their hair to regain his strength. When they confront her again they battle against her and he is able to free the people she had absorbed. He holds her, sacrificing himself to allow Kitarō to throw the Kiyome no Honō at her, both consumed in it flames.[1]
