Zenki and Kouki (前鬼 & 後鬼, Zenki & Goki) are two Shikigami, once caught by Asakura Hao in his first life, and later fell under the control of Kyōyama Anna


Zenki and Goki are a pair of paper Shikigami (old nature spirits who have become powerful demons) that were captured by Hao during his first life. They are very loyal to Asakura Hao and will kill anyone who comes in their way. Both have a striking similarity to ogres. However after being caught by Anna they seem to lose their conscience.


Zenki is the blue Shikigami. He has a large horn in the middle of its forehead and two downward pointing tusks. It is large and rather muscular. He uses melee combat as his main form of fighting (Although in the manga he carries a shield as well). Its eye sockets are shaped as the "Seven Star Tree of Renewal"


Goki is the red Shikigami. He has two large horns on its forehead and two upward pointing tusks. Like Zenki, he is large and muscular and uses a large battle axe for combat. His eye sockets are shaped like the "Five Point Star". Unlike Zenki, he doesn't have eyes in each point of the star, instead he has one in the center.


They where first seen 1000 years ago during the time of Hao's first life. After becoming an adult, Hao was tasked with capturing the two ogres. After finding them he subdued them with ease and sealed them within two pieces of talisman's. Afterwards they became his loyal servants to Hao and later became guardians of and worked as a curse killing anyone who would break their seal on the book.

Anime/Manga Difference


  • Zenki and Goki are a reference to the Oni, which is the traditional representation of Demons and Ogres in the Japanese folklore. They're often seen in the colors red (with two horns) and blue (with one horn) while wearing tiger-skin loincloths.
