  • A great take on supernatural in a modern setting
    Watched ep 1-15 twice

    As someone who really enjoys shows that deal with fantasy/supernatural without shonen tropes or end-of-the-world drama, this anime absolutely scratches that itch. It's a down-to-earth tale of a small, professional workforce that deals with issues between humans and 'anothers', mythical creatures that most humans can't perceive or interact with.

    It's not ...

  • Can't wait for more episodes!
    I don't understand all the negative reviews. I really enjoy this story, and how it flows. It reminds me a lot of the manga I used to enjoy when I was in high school. It's a shoujo that doesn't focus on romance, and I'm cool with it. However, I'll be the first to admit the dialog of the dubbed version sucks by comparison, and is often dumbed down, or loses something in translation as far as how a ...

  • The potential is there, but hasn't been realized.
    Episodes 1-12 of the first season

    Over all, I would probably recommend this show and I enjoyed watching it. However, the main thing I would probably criticize is the lack of an overarching storyline. I haven't read the manga so I have no idea what the format of it is but here, it's set up as a "monster of the week" show. This might be fine for some people but I found myself wanting a more ...

  • Crossing boundries and introducing a language barrier for ayakashi
    This series is brilliant! It has a unique twist on not only can most not see demons, ghosts, gods, yokai, etc.; but also none who see them can understand their words. Except our awesome protagonist! He tries to make bridges and help so that they can all understand each other. I love the twists and turns, compassion and turmoil this series brings! I HIGHLY recommend it!

  • While i like this and that
    While i like this i can honestly say it not the best and drag on for way to long like they knew what the end arc was and they needed to fill space. I think the arc with the guy from tokyo was that and it made me very annoyed with it. I think it a great anime with out that i give it three but it really 2 and a half stars

    Enjoyed it at the time - now reviewing I'm not sure
    Ok so I did enjoy this show when I first watched it, now that I'm reviewing it I
    m not so sure.

    This is a relatively unique premise as far as I can tell - Civil servants keeping the peace with the local occult - but something always seemed a bit off.

    I won't go into any spoilers but there is a piece of key information which really isn't clear initially until a character literally says it ...

  • Interesting Enough To Stick With
    I wouldn't say this is a great anime, but it is interesting. I like premise and the main character. I find the overall stories interesting as well, but the flow of each episode does tend to lean towards slow. I hope if they make a season 2, they'll reconsider this and pick up the pace. Otherwise I worry this will just end up becoming tedious.

  • Similar to Natsume's Book of Friends but better
    Very similar to Natsume's Book of Friends but I would say I like it better. It is definitely underrated. It is similar to shows I have seen before, but it still is interesting and I enjoy watching the show. I hope it becomes more popular and we can see a 2nd season.

  • Decent Anime I Enjoyed It.
    Our m.c. can understand what the "another" are saying and he's the only one that can their are many variations of this theme throughout anime so that's nothing new. I did like most of the characters and the other beings were pretty interesting some of the situations that came up were also interesting and I felt that this anime was presented pretty well with a pretty good English dub and no fan ...

  • Natsume Yujin-cho Meets Civil Servants
    If you liked Natsume Yujin-cho, you'll definitely love this series. Although execution was a little rough, the premise was absolutely fantastic. Good series to binge too if you have a free day on your hands. Although, not necessarily a great ending, but I hope a season 2 comes out soon.
