    Breathtaking and intensely chilling.
    This show.

    This show, you guys.

    I don't know if I can put together words for it. The animation is both intense and stagnant, the imagery both beautiful and horrifying. I've been watching anime for over 15 years now, and there is no anime like Mononoke. I would compare the main character, The Medicine Seller, to Mushishi's main character Ginko, but the worlds they inhibit and mysteries they ...

    My favorite anime of all time
    "Mononoke" is a very unusual series. It's supernatural horror, and uses a unique cinematic style (surreal colors, disjointed camera angles) to evoke feelings of unease in the viewer. The series is presented in several separate arcs, each centering around a "mononoke", a spirit of karmic vengeance, and its defeat by the nameless main character. It's unusual for its artistic style, thoughtful ...

    Mononoke - Art and Mystery
    Yes! It's here on Crunchy! Mononoke is a series based off of the 2nd episode of another show called Ayakashi that got extremely famous. The series follows a medicine seller through time and space, hunting mononoke.

    The series is accented by vibrant artwork based off of oriental-like patterned fabrics. The medicine teller weaves through mystery and the depths of human sins to uncover the truth, ...

    One of the best anime, great storytelling
    This is an example of fantastic storytelling. Its weird and beautiful, but what really got me was how complex the stories were and how much they sucked me in. This is one I will be rematching many times and will be added to my top five favorite anime of all time.

    Decadent and Gorgeous
    Beautiful and disturbing art, wonderful voice acting, and a compelling lead character make this my favorite anime this winter. Even if the stories creep you out or leave you cold, the art is sumptuous and rather crazed. By the way, the music is also quite good. It has been mentioned in other reviews - if you are a fan of the art in "Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo", you'll be delighted by ...

    YES! YES! YES! Mononoke!
    Oh my goodness.. They are putting Mononoke on Crunchyroll. I am ecstatic. From what I have seen, this has to be one of my favorite shows of all time. Now that it is on crunchyroll, I think I may actually finish completely watching it. ( I think I've watched up to around episode 10.. But I plan on hopefully re-watching it from the beginning. )

    A lot of philosophical undertones in this show.. ...

    Mononoke: An Experience Unlike Any Other
    This show has brought unique, truly Japanese ghost stories to life in an amazing visual way. The simple make a bigger impact than most other highly rendered anime.

    It must be experienced. If you call yourself a fan of the anime art form, watch this.

    Saying Something Different
    If you want your mind blown, watch this. Beautiful, Horrifying, and Insane. You are never quite sure where it ends and begins and who is the real problem.

    Do they die or not? What is the underlying truth? This show makes you question many things.

    Blink and you'll miss something.

    I watched this forever ago with a group of people and binge watched the whole show. not recommended. Should ...

    Stellar Anime Rewards Multiple Viewings
    The art style may not be everyone's favorite, but it pulls from traditional Japanese art as well as more abstract surrealist art. This choice makes this anime seem both familiar and alien at the same time, which I find works perfectly for the mysterious and horrific stories it tells. It can be hard to follow sometimes, but you kind of just have to let it roll and enjoy it until it all makes sense ...
