    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 ...

  • Engaging regardless of the slow pace
    Though a slower paced main plot with a lot of filler type episodes, the story was intriguing and the friendship between the two main characters was believable and relatable. Hopefully the main plot will be developed even further than the second season answering the many questions left to its audience. This review is based on the anime and the reviewer has no insight on the manga plotline or story ...

  • It went so well... then it went oh, so wrong
    I had been waiting for a second season and even thought we might not get one which is why I decided to pick up the manga. I ended up loving it, and because of that the second season actually made me quite happy, as it seems to follow almost 1 to 1 with the manga.

    That is, till we reached the final episode.
    In all honesty, it was the very episode I had been most eagerly awaiting. For that ...

  • Cute! I like it but it could've been more
    The second season was okay. I really enjoyed the first season (got me to read the manga) and was super excited when I heard there was going to be a second season! This is a lighthearted fantasy/supernatural anime that is fun to watch if you have some time.

    The characters are cute and likable. They aren't the most unique though. Ashiya as a main character is pretty basic in character. I still ...

  • Really touching and hilarious
    I've been a huge fan of this anime and it's manga for a long time. I've caught up in the manga but the anime is nice to watch all of the things come together. There is a huge focus on friendship and making people happy so be ready for the feels and the smiles. Hanae and Itsuki are a hilarious team together and I love how their characters grow and compliment each other. This anime is seriously a ...

  • The Morose Mononokean
    I originally let this anime play for my birds, but ended up being captivated by it, thus watching it together. It is super cute and oh my, so many muffins! I recommend this anime and manga for first timers and those who just want to immerse themselves.

    Pleased as punch, really.
    I started watching this show when I was having a bad day. It's lighthearted and easy to follow. The colors make everything seem more fun. It was delightful to binge and helped me feel better, so I think it's worth a watch. It's not imperative that you watch it very quickly but if you find yourself wanting to smile or relax, this would be a great place to start.

  • Another exorcist anime..but a good one
    So this series isn't much different from some of the other fantasy/adventure exorcism animes that you've probably watched. But that isn't a bad thing. While a lot of the plot and characters feel familiar it still is a different story and definitely makes you feel good. Loved it.

  • I love this, and would definitely watch again.
    The concept itself has been used numerous times. Youkai, contractor working to help protect peace between the worlds, etc etc. This was not the best display of this type of story, but it was still quite good and heartwarming. I would recommend this anime positively.

    The characters have a charm to them that doesn't always come across with youkai. They develop in an interesting way once you get ...
