|Actor Otani Oniji III as the Yakko Edobei|
|Name in other languages|
The Scary Painting is a painting that can be bought from Redd in all games in the Animal Crossing series and is known in the real world as Actor Otani Oniji III as the Yakko Edobei. It is a Japanese print by the mysterious Sharaku, a Japanese artist. Little is known of him: he was active for only around ten months in 1794 and 1795, and he may even be a group of artists that used the name 'Sharaku'- this word is a shortened version of the word sharakusai, meaning 'nonsense' in Japanese.
Sharaku did not become popular until the 20th-century; pieces by him (or them) are now considered to be a famous example of Japanese woodblock art (ukiyo-e).
