    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, ...

    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.. ...

    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 ...

    Best horror anime done right
    A fantastic show for CR to pick up. If you thought Another was the best horror anime had to offer (HaHaHAHAHA), you are in for a ride.

    Horror enthusiasts who appreciate atmosphere, tone, and general Japanese horror creepiness intertwined with suspense and some crazy good art direction will fall in love with this show.

    It's also worth mentioning that the show originates from the last several ...

    Trying to hard to be different
    I will have to say up front I am not a fan of this style of animation it dose not add to or enhance the over all story line and some times distracts from it. Frankly I would not put this in the horror genre it is more about tragedy and nothing really scarey about it. The story line is sometimes disjointed and is overly long not in the amount of information but because they slow it down to show off ...

    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 ...

  • One of my Favorite Series
    I'm so excited to see this here on Crunchyroll, even though I just bought the whole series on DVD a week ago. The art style is unique and the storytelling is A+. I've watched it all the way through and haven't gotten tired of it yet. I 100% recommend this if you like a little mystery and horror (but not the kind with jump scares, it's not Yamishibai).

    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 ...

    An Interesting Watch
    To start off I would say this series isn't for the type of anime viewer who just enjoys fights and fan service. Mononoke has an extremely unique art style and animation style.The show is comprised of short stories some being only one episode to some being about 3 episodes. For having such bright colors the short stories tend to be on the darker side of things and I wouldn't recommend this series ...
