    Youkai 妖怪 means "monsters". But Japanese monsters. Not like monsters in West like were-wolf.

    Akuma is devil in Japanese.

    Oni is a creature like devil. But it's created in Japan.

    Oni also has a nuance of "very strong person". So it's sometimes used on someone who is very good at something like sports.

    He likes you. A guy doesn't stare at a girl so much if he didn't have feelings for her or find her attractive. Guys don't have lots of facial muscles, so when he is staring at you he is not concentrating on his facial features rather than a female who would show more expressions. Also, when a guy stares you up and down, in other words checking you out is kind of his way of saying "I'm considering you a sexual partner" (don't ask). He may of gotten caught staring at you, so therefore he looked away quickly because he was embarrassed. But if it is a recurring thing, then he may like you.

    Oni is a sort of Youkai which has a shape of human, but has cow like horn and tiger like fang. It can speak human langauge.

    Typical Oni has iron club, and crimpy heir, with strange colored skin like red/black/blue, etc.. Usually it is depicted naked but having only tiger skin pants on.

    Oni is a dweller of the hell or hidden isolated remote place, who sometime attack villages, rip off, and kid nap people. It also attack travelers in the mountain.

    It sometime also considered to be the incarnated evil sprits, or metapher of those people who has cold and evil mind, or people who is vary fanatical, or far exceed ordinally people in many ways. Human shape being without ordinally human mind could be called Oni.

    Demon... but it can also mean ogre, spirit, etc.

    ONI is also a term used in games such as "tag" to designate the person who is 'it'.
