They say there is a pixie that thinks it’s funny to cast a spell on burly men who act tough so they will act more like women (This is not like the fairy king, nor does it make them homosexual). The men will start to get their feelings hurt by jokes that once never bothered them and will pick up hobbies like knitting or sewing. The only way to become manly again is to ask the pixie (In some stories you can just ask the forest) to cure the curse.
Once the curse is gone you can go back to being manly but must always remember that a gentlemen always out ways a brute despite how much muscle the brute may have. In other versions of the story they say that they only cast the curse on men who use strength to get what they want.
Keukegen (毛羽毛現, “fluffy hair appearance”) is a creature illustrated in Toriyama Sekien’s Konjaku Hyakki Shūi. It resembles a small dog covered entirely in long hair. Its name is a pun - when written with different kanji (希有怪訝), keukegen means “an unusual thing which is rarely seen”.
According to one report, the keukegen is a disease spirit which lives in damp, dark places and causes people in the house to get sick.
Amerfurikozo (The spirit of a child with an umbrella)
It appears as a strange child carrying a paper lantern and wearing a hat made from the husk of an old umbrella. According to Sekien, it is in service of U-shi, a Chinese god of precipitation, and thus has the power to make the rain fall.
