7/3/16 - Reopened since the show will start its regular broadcast and will be on Crunchyroll very soon.

I've been reading the manga on and off, and it gives me hope that I'll enjoy the anime.

The first episode is finally here on Crunchyroll.

Episode 1

And so it begins with Hanae stepping on what he thought is a plushie that some kid dropped, but at it turns out that fuzzball is a spirit that no ordinary human can see and as such, he has started out his high school life collapsing in front of the school. But luckily, he finds an exorcist who can fix that problem in Abeno. And Abeno uses a beach ball to play with that fuzzball so that it gets off his back. As it turns out, that fuzzball is a yokai who just wanted to be noticed and for Abeno to exorcise it, that things must get smaller, so they play for five hours to get it down to size and off it goes back to where it belongs. But in doing so, Hanae incurs a large debt and has to work for Abeno. That was a pretty nice start to this.

Eh it was okay. the yokai stuff looks familiar but I have mixed thoughts about the humor. For some reason, this gave me some Kyoukai no Rinne feel with the supernatural stuff going on. Not bad so far, pretty straight forward storytelling.

I haven't watched the first episode but this sounds suspiciously like xxxHolic but with a blond, male Yuuko.

From reading the manga, it's got that human-yokai interaction aspect like xxxHolic, but is it's own thing. xxxHolic is a bit darker on the average than Morose Monokean has been. They both focus on different themes and character development directions.

This seems light enough has high school element with a yokai theme add a spear and you could call it Ushio and Tora will keep watching

That was as adorable as the manga.

No one should expect a lot of action in this. It's closer to xxxHolic and Mushishi than Ushio and Tora and Yu Yu Hakusho. But it definitely has the aspect of trying to understand yokai and humans that all of those have. Morose Monokean is their somewhat goofy younger brother.

Well, I need to keep watching at least long enough to see why "Ashayia" as a name was significant enough to make Abeno show a sudden interest.

It was alright. Nothing mind blowing but entertaining enough to check out more.

Ep 1

It's really simple and laid-back, but no less enjoyable. I'm curious to see if it'll end up being a sort of yokai of the week sort of show, or if there will be more depth and story. The little fuzzy yokai was cute though. Not sure I'd want one stealing the energy out of me, but I'd play with it. I kinda hope fuzzball keeps showing up.
