    Supernatural decetive/peace maker on the case.
    Written at episode 1, will update over the course of the season.

    Right from the first episode this looks to be very interesting to me. The concept of a occult peace keeping service that operates at night is not a new concept, but their spin on it looks to have potential. I'm hopeful that it will live up to my expectations.

    Arata Miyako looks like a fresh recruit at first, with little to ...

    Fascinating Premise, Little Dry on Execution
    ~Review written as of episode 3~

    This show certainly isn't the first to capitalize on the idea that supernatural creatures live parallel to our own. What this show does, however, do a little differently is looking at things through a Japanese bureaucratic lens. Yokai (a type of mythological creature-genre that bears similarities to many Western fantasy elements, but contain a sort of ...

    Youkai Intervention!
    Based upon the first episode, I'd call this the public servant version of The Morose Mononokean: young guy takes job dealing with various Youkai and their interactions with humans and each other. Difference being, this is a government job, complete with multiple coworkers and policies. As in TMM, our protagonist discovers a talent for not just seeing Youkai, but also for ...

    If you like one shot mysteries and Natsume's Book of Friends you'll enjoy this!
    As a big fan of yokai/mythical creature types of shows, I am really enjoying this. Feels kind of like Natume's Book of Friends but in a city setting with working adults instead of teenagers. I also love reincarnation/ power inheritance from an ancestor tropes, so the main character appeals to me greatly. His past/current relationship with the mysterious Aztec god of disaster is also really ...

    These Angels are Bombshells, on the verge of a Wardrobe Malfunction!
    Did that get your attention? If you like to think while being entertained, then you might like this one. The entire series (as-of episode 11) follows an increasingly thoughtful arc. Episode 1 starts with a gentle head-on assault against some established cultural “truths”, at least in parts of Japanese culture: arranged marriage and interracial marriage (between Angel and Demon!) The way they ...

    The superpower of talking
    A solid series that strikes a good and believable balance with all the character's personalities and actions. This series does a good job of posing the question, how do you deal with supernatural beings that for the most part just want to live their lives? Especially when those beings have abilities beyond and logic different from ours. Throw into the mix the fact that humans can't even understand ...

    This show is absolutely amazing!
    I'm four episodes in and I'm loving it but there are a couple of things that they could use a bit of work.

    I don't particularly care for the current relationship between Miyako and Kohaku. I'm hoping that it gets better and that the chemistry improves. I'm not talking about romantic chemistry either. I can tell that that relationship is going somewhere but I can't tell if it's friends or ...

    Refreshing show from all the isekai's I watch
    I ended up delving into this show being interested on the simple base of just the title but ended up getting pleasantly surprised on how well it makes the whole world feel connected. The protagonist is fairly simple but well suited for the role within the show making him someone the audience can enjoy.

    Enjoyable and Relaxing
    The concept itself is not too unlike the other yokai-type genre anime we already have, but I find it a nice, chill anime to watch. Right now the show seems episodic, in which each episode is a case of its own, but hopefully we'll get to see more of an overarching plot as well!

    But if not, that's okay with me as well. The episodic events are easy to watch as well.

    Different and Fun to Watch
    I've watched a lot of anime and a lot of anime about non-human characters, but I have yet to watch another one similar to this one (Yes, they probably do exist). I find the show very entertaining and fun to watch. I love the mystery aspect of it too. If you're looking for something different, fun, and relaxing to watch, I would recommend this 10/10!
