    ~Surprisingly Great~
    Based on crunchyroll's description I was afraid this was going to be something I've already seen many times before. Yokai and excorists animes are pretty common these days. This aime isn't earth shakingly good, but I found it entertaining and the show still managed to throw some curveballs. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by The Morose Mononokean.

    The plot centers around first year ...

    Very Solid, Despite Worn Concept
    We've all seen 'random high-schooler can see magical creatures' animes before. And, I don't necessarily think this one is particularly creative, or original, or does much to expand/transform that trope. However, I'd also argue that it doesn't need to. The Morose Mononokean is very entertaining. I read through the entire manga collection in one day. The characters are likeable, and develop steadily ...

    Really enjoying it so far :D
    From the start the show displays some very nice animation and a good idea of how it wants to approach the rest of the series.

    The comedy is very lighthearted and there can be some heartfelt moments that derive from some quirky antics that the show presents.

    The first episode jumps right in and provides only a little bit of insight on whats going on the world. Where, although it is tackled ...

    Morose Mononokean: IN Love with the Characters
    The anime show has well-paced episodes, a kawaii characters, and the show creators gave the watchers a mysterious underworld and characters that we have more to learn about. (FYI the underworld looks like the exact opposite of how I expected it to be which the show flaunted it's original ideas). I like that the basic concept of a student in high school with magical creatures was made to be totally ...

    Bromance over Romance!
    This show is so delightful! So far I cannot find anything about this show that I do not like.

    Normally I follow multiple shows and I tend to keep a "romantic" anime in the back there to satisfy a need to watch people make long lasting relationships (and blah blah blah) but this is SO MUCH BETTER.

    All the characters, from the two main characters (Ashiya & Abeno), to the yokai, and the others ...

    Change of pace, The Morose Mononokean.
    The Morose Mononokean is definitely a nice change in pace from the usual yokai related anime. In my mind it is comparable to Flying Witch in this regard. The main character Hanae starts out as an everyday first year high school student, with one catch, he has been what he comes to first believe, is a “victim” of a yokai possession. It turns out to be a misconception on his part and with an ...

    Ep1 Review - Love me some yokai!
    I love anime that include youkai in the real world and the humans who interact with them. It's a decent start, a semi-quiet, pretty anime with a nice premise that holds some promise. Not overly impressed with the (two, so far) character themselves - they seem a little stereotypical - one dimensional - thus far (the grouchy omniyouji, the goofball/potentially incompetent student assistant, the ...

    Love This Anime and so Should You!
    I've only read a few chapters of the manga and when I saw the first episode of this anime I just couldn't stop smiling. It's beautifully adapted and the quality of the anime is very good. I really enjoyed how the managed the comedy aspect of the manga. Some anime shows just don't do that properly and just start off badly. Also the fresh take on exorcising youkai is very profound.

    I am ...

    Manga turned into anime
    Read the manga on crunchyroll manga app if you can't wait for the next episode. Manga is currently not completed.

    Love the manga so I couldn't wait to watch the anime. So far the pacing and characters seem great but setting as this is the first episode things can change. It feels more like a slice of life type of anime with supernatural elements mixed in so don't expect too much action. ...

    Different take on Exorcism
    In most Exorcist shows that you watch the Yokai are seen as the bad creature and are then killed for the sake of humanity. In Morose Monokean the show takes a different spin on Yokai and they are seen in a more positive light.

    I have so far only seen the first episode but the story, characters, music, and comedy was spot on and was a very enjoyable first episode.

    If you are looking for a new ...
