Episode 8

And it turns out that Abeno didn't kill Aoi, and seeing that he hasn't changed that Yahiko has removed the mark and decided to go to the underworld to play with other yokai. Just like that, Ashiya stumbles across another yokai in the form of a bird, Jomatsu, looking for a princess and go to the underworld together. It turns out that the princess in inside a huge egg and while Ashiya was willing to crack the egg, the princess comes out after a heated exchange between Ashiya and Jomatsu in front of the princess. Jomatsu loves the princess, but as it turns out it's not that kind of love, but they just love flying together. That was pretty silly the way things turned out.

Great episode, I'm really liking this more and more.

On a side note, I was thinking about their names(Ashiya and Abeno) the other day and realised that they might be a reference to Abe no Seimei(Abeno Seimei) and Ashiya Douman. I'm sorry if anyone else has pointed this out earlier, I might be wrong, but in that case just ignore me.

The Morose Mononokean EP 8 / "The Wait "

This is just a steady anime and sometimes that is good enough ! Abeno Abeno explains to Yahiko that he didnt kill Aoi the former master ! Yes he wanted the job but through conventional ways. As punishment for bothering Zenko he has to work at the shrine for a year!

The 2nd half Ashiya finds a yokai Jomatsu who is passed out because his mistress Princees Anmo wrapped herself in an egg because she falls in love easily . But she is usually just a day or so .After finding her egg and nothing happens Ashiya threatens the shell with a rock and then Jomatsu which prompts her to come out Ashiya explains to Anmo that Jomatsu outs himself in danger lookking fro help so she comes out and Ashiya gets Jomastsu to say he loves her but Abeno comea along ans she goes to him

Jomatsu is adorable. Ashiya made up a cute bed for him and provided him with refreshments.

Episode 9

The next job comes from a girl and her mother is none too pleased about using her allowance to hire an exorcist. The mother wants him to explain things scientifically, which Ashiya is not exactly in a position to do. Having been separated from her, there's nothing stopping her from opening the door and the yokai escapes. Earthquakes and other things have been happening, but in the end that hedgehog yokai was just scared of humans and was sent to the yokai world. That mother was such a pain in the ass to deal with seeing that things would have gone much smoother if she hadn't meddled. Next time, Yahiko is in big trouble.

The Morose Mononokean EP 9 / "The Marked Difference"

That girl and mother what a pain! Spiky was cool in the end though! Ashiya has a knack with stubborn Yokai which makes Abeno think back to what The Master said that Ashiya could be dangerous!

Episode 10

As for what's wrong with Yahiko, he has picked a bad time to turn into his fox form and now he's stuck. So Abeno ends up having to exorcise a scarecrow yokai in Nobou in a mud field that stinks. Nobou had been trapped there for so long, but the problem is self-inflicted as that place was created by his regret for letting his scarecrow friend burn. He can't be exorcised until he has moved out of that toxic dump, and with Abeno and Ashiya letting him know that they will be waiting for him, he finally gets over it and gets out. While I was hoping it would be about Yahiko, it ends up being something else entirely, but it was still nice to watch.

I have to admit, that peculiar youkai expressed some strong human emotions at the end. Even I'm somewhat surprised. Pretty faithful adaptation of the chapter btw.

Episode 11

LOL at Zenko's father thinking that Ashiya is some sort of miracle doctor when all he did was simply get Yahiko off his back, which he can't see. Next client is Okina, who is asking Abeno to the seal yokai Tomori to see again. So to do that, Ashiya temporarily gives up his ability to see yokai and is sent back home. Even though Ashiya is back to being normal again, he misses being able to see the fuzzball, while Abeno is not exactly helping matters by saying that he's going to be fired when he finds a replacement. So after it had been helping yokai, Ashiya's life has taken a sudden turn now that his yokai sight is gone, and it will be interesting to see what's next for him, as well as what happen in the meeting between the Legislator and Abeno.

Episode 12

While Ashiya can't see yokai anymore and he has been fired from his job because of it, the Legislator, Zenko, and all of the yokai he helped are showing their support for him, and that they miss Ashiya as much as Ashiya misses them. So Abeno sees Tomori and it turns out that his desire to grant her vision still subconsciously weighs on his mind, which could make the condition permanent if it lingers on. That was nice to see all of the yokai coming together like that to show that they enjoy being around Ashiya. One more episode left to go as it will be about Ashiya getting his vision back.

Doesn't seem to be the kind that does, but its enjoyable none the less. It seems to be heading toward a conclusion.
