Episode 4

Hanae makes his first trip to the Underworld with Abeno, and to Hanae's surprise, the place is bright and bustling. They head off to a medicine shop where some medicine that he ordered was picked up by somebody else. While Abeno is away, Hanae spots the fuzzball and thinking that he's bleeding that he goes chasing after it only to find out that it is a different yokai and that the blood came from a fruit it stole, thus getting Hanae caught up in that doppleganger's mischief. The first half was just a waste of time there, but things got pretty interesting in the second half as Shizuku is cute, and Hanae just doesn't have any street sense at all.

Best episode so far imo.

The new characters have peculiar personalities yet I'm interested to see more about them especially the master of that medicine shop. Also, they adapted the chapter with the Underworld setting and it looks quite stylistic with this series. Oh Hanae needs to be careful with just being there...

Episode 5

That capybara yokai went too far as he hurt that fuzzball. In the end, Abeno comes in to tell that capybara that he went too far in pursuing the wrong thief. The rules of being a Mononokean are explained, and in essence the only rule is that he has to follow every direct order from legislation. Ashiya is brought over to see the Legislator to determine if it is alright to continue on with the job despite being human, and in the end, Ashiya's determination to help yokai convinced the Legislator to change the law allowing masters and assistants, human or yokai, to pass through to the underworld, and the fuzzball gets hired to work for Abeno. Well, I got to know some more about Abeno and what it means to be a Mononokean, as well as why he didn't have any yokai working for him.

They managed to adapt the rest of the short two episode arc. And imo, it was quite well done from introduction of the Newt Lake to the legislator meeting. I've started reading the series again (had this on-hold for ages) and they've been adapting it quite faithfully.

Lovely seeing the Newt Lake animated!

im curious now ..I want to read the manga now but it looks like the story behind that power is not quiet revealed yet

I was happy to hear Junichi Suwabe as the Legislator .. i just remembered him at the AX panel...I was so close I could hear his voice

But Kaji is really annoying here, whining too much ... he is pretty much using his speaking voice though

I just remembered why the name Ashiya sounded familiar , that name was used in The Devil A Part Timer( (love that show more than this though) as one of Satan right hand man, its actually the Japanese version of Alciel .
In the mythology .... Alciel and Lucifer are generals of Satan ,pretty much a demon in the megami tensei world, a prince of Geneha.

So I wonder if thats is what the mangaka making the connection to his power, especially when he is in the underworld and in in his evil mode Ha ha ha ha

Episode 6

Ashiya's first job as a sanctioned employee of Abeno is to retrieve a ring that was lost by an old lady, and an eel yokai Manjiro is there to help. Ashiya found it on instincts alone, and the next part is how to deliver it to the old lady. They go to her house, and the lady comes by. Abeno explains the situation the best he can without outing the truth about yokais. It turns out that Manjiro happens to be the spirit of the husband who passed away a long time ago. That was pretty awkward there, but in the end it all worked out.

One of the strangest looking youkai I've seen so far from the series

Ep 6

I liked the previous episodes better, but this was still nice. Ashiya seems to be rubbing of on Abeno, opening him up to the idea of letting people know about youkai. I wonder if his aversion to people and youkai interacting has something to do with what the Legislator was talking to him about at the end of the last episode. Speaking of endings, what was up with Abeno there? Some sort of shadowy cat-spirit is stalking him? The next one should be pretty good.

Well the wrtting is very similar to Natsume .

There will be stories about their work and there will stories about Abeno and about Ashiya.

but I really want to more about Ashiya so I hope they dont drag that part too long becuase I think I will lose interest

and I agree the yokai eel looks very strange indeed especially when its design is rather simple

Episode 7

Zenko got bitten by a fox, but no ordinary person can see it. So the fox challenges Ashiya, Abeno, and Zenko to a game of hide and seek at the graveyard near the temple, and while the fox has hid himself well among the gravestones, Abeno can easily find him. But the fox wants to keep on playing until he is satisfied The fox disguised himself as Abeno, and Ashya figured it out as he called him his servant, not employee. As it turns out, Abeno apparently killed his master Aoi. Yahiko sure did make quite an impression there begin a kid who wants to play, but has the tendency to really be scary when he is upset.
