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.


It seems a lot like Natsume Yuujin-cho except more bishie-oriented, I guess.

Episode 2

Hanae was told to ignore yokai, but he just couldn't ignore it when a girl's leg is pinned down by one of those shrubby things bringing in a pack of those things. Seeing that he can't exorcise all of those things without knowing if there are more of those things lurking that it's more effective to draw the queen ant in, and Hanae's job is to be the bait. That gathers all of those things to send those little ones back to the Underworld, but the big boss is on the verge of death. So to honor the request to go to the underworld, the big boss is fed some really dangerous medicine and is now small enough to fit through the gate to be with the little ones. That was, more or less, a repeat of the first episode with a new yokai to deal with.

I want that fuzzy cute thing. Not as a real yokai, but just as a stuffed toy. I can't afford to live my whole high school life in the nurse's office.

Your wish has been granted, but we missed the order cutoff:

I really hope this series crafts more diverse youkai from its roster because they look pretty similar.

Fun anime. Its a bit different to me.

Is it a watered-down "brotherly love" type of anime? More accessible to people like me that would typically skip that type of anime?

Kind of a calm type of anime, despite all the yelling.

Assuming they stick with the manga storyline, it doesn't get anymore "brotherly love" than what you've seen. It's kind of the reverse of the "cute girls doing things" type of show. It's just the two boys and various yokai (also mostly of the cute variety). Though there should be a cute girl coming, if not the next episode, the one after that. There should also be a couple other female characters that appear later on.

Ep 2

Still pretty relaxing, and even funny at times. Those little leafy yokai were adorable. Curious to see if Ashiya ever develops any exorcist abilities of his own or if he will always be destined to be bait to lure out the yokai while Abeno does all the work. It still looks like a "monster of the week" format for now, but I'm entertained so I don't mind.



Don't worry, Ashiya. They don't bite.

Episode 3

Hanae's next assignment is to help out Zenko's father, and her father has been laughing nonstop thanks to a yokai. The key is for Hanae to use the sad story Dog of Flanders and tear up, but with Zenko's father always laughing that it has proven to be quite difficult to do. The two share a common connection in that they are thinking about taking over their place, but their parents aren't exactly making them do so. So Zenko cries and that got the mask off, but Abeno saw it and just can't stand his incompetence. The first half was pretty lackluster, but the second have was really something as it is starting to introduce the other characters. Zenko really is something.

Zenko is adorable imo. Unfortunately, I wasn't too into this episode until they got to the part with the mask.

Well Hanae and her definitely had some unique chemistry.

Ashiya Hanae #1 character who is a confirmed boy who could still be a trap. This man is way too pretty and has a similar design to Tsugumi from Nisekoi.

The Morose Mononokean EP 3 / "Zenko"

I like this anime a lot jst the right touch humor and life lessons

Haruitsuki is tired after doing 2 exorcism's and Ashiya has to find an Yokai's lost mask that makes someone laugh for life unless they see a crying face then the mask is released .The Mononokean writes on a Scroll since Haruitsuki is out of it. They track the mask to a shrine where Ashiya meets Zenko whose father laughs constantly. She dont trust him at first . She is also upset that her father does not want to tsake over the shrine . She thinks it is because she is a girl but listening to Ashiya she knows her father only wants her to decicde her future. After her father see her crying the mask appears but gives Ashiya a hard time but Haruitsuki come and helps. I am sure Zenko will appear again since she goes to the same school . The yokaii tells Haruitsuki Ashiya has more to him

The Mononokean learning emoticons were quite a surprising and entertaining touch to it. This series isn't that bad actually, the themes were light but also deep. I didn't have a high expectation for this series to begin with. But, quite liking it so far as it's a fun watch.
