Director of special effects




  1. 1.0 1.1 While Kimiyoshi Yasuda and Yoshiyuki Kuroda are both credited as directors in Yokai Monsters: Along with Ghosts, Kuroda's name is written smaller beneath Yasuda's. The reasoning for this is unknown, though it may indicate that Kuroda was a co-director or director of special effects. The 2010 book Daiei Tokusatsu Movie Chronicle (p. 126) credits Yasuda as the movie's director and Kuroda as its director of special effects, though no special effects director is credited within the film itself.
