A medicine seller whose name is never mentioned hunts Mononoke, which are best described as ghosts/evil spirits for this anime. He's carrying a special sword for this sake, which was outrageous for a merchant in the Edo period, because back then only samurai were allowed to carry swords. However, he can only draw his sword when 3 conditions are met, which are finding out the Mononoke's truth, form and regret.

Discuss this beautiful anime. Apart from the crazy artwork, I like the Edgar Allen Poe/detective feel to it and the main character is the coolest medicine seller to be imagined. While episodes 1 and 2 were decent, episode 3 and 4 are great, so I'm really looking forward to ep 5.

It sounds interesting but i'm wondering can it be watched as a standalone story as it's a spin-off from Ayakashi. or will i have to watch Ayakashi beforehand to understand the story better?

^^It won't hurt to watch Ayakashi before, you might recognize some (or one) of the side characters. However, Mononoke is a standalone story. Or rather, it seems to be split into arcs.

Just done watching ep 6 <3 Beautiful as always. I love how they approch each arc, I'm really curious as to this Mononoke's truth and regret.

Just watched the first episode and i liked it a lot. The whole mish-mash of texture and colour really does remind me of Gankutsuou but not as psychedelic. I must say though sometimes it's hard to distinguish people from the background but it hasn't ruined my enjoyment of this anime. This gets a thumbs up from me!

I'm so addicted to Mononoke. Yes the medicine seller is the coolest character of all. His voice suits him too (Actor voice for Cloud). I'm sad that there will be only 12 episodes though. XD...
