  • Amazing! I really enjoyed it :)
    I absolutely loved this series! It's so cute, and I really wonna see where it goes especially in terms of Ashiya's 'powers'. It's a shame there isn't many episodes. I can't wait for more to come out. Ashiya is just so cute! He's honestly adorable.

  • A feel good Saturday afternoon watch
    At first, I thought this might be another anime where I really dislike the main character but he turns out to be a needed necessity. The story line never took a sharply misguided turn and every character became someone or thing you wanted to see again. Overall I really loved this anime and can see myself revisiting it a few more times.

    p.s. Also would not mind a continuation.

  • Fuzzy, Warm, and Endearing
    I wasn't expecting much from this show. It looked cute and interesting, the animation looked solid, and the characters looked pretty generic. I went in expecting nothing, so that is probably why it blew me away. The characters personalities were exactly as I expected of them, but it's not a bad thing.

    If you like demons and supernatural elements with loads of comedy, I would suggest you watch ...

  • engaging anime with interesting story line
    love the art and the overall storyline. really hooked on finding out more on Ashiya and Abeno. the relationship between Ashiya and the demons are sweet and touching. and the contrast with Abeno is hilarious. the only annoying thing is the opening theme song. otherwise cant wait for more eps to come out

  • Season 2 please! We need it!
    You like Yokai/Spirits? Do you want to fall in love with something cute like people fell in love with pikachu?

    This is the anime for you! It does have a great story line but it does tends to not explain things very well at times which is why we need season 2!

  • Cute but also annoying
    This anime had a fun concept with excellent secondary characters, but the main charter's constant overreactions and screams got on my last nerve more than once. The Mononokean himself was very lackluster with a lot of unearthed (yet a particularly interesting sounding) backstory. I wanted to like it more, but the critic in me just can't get past the lack of a fulfilling plot. What was the point ...

  • A heartfelt look at a human who suddenly sees yokai
    This is a nice new take on a human who can suddenly see yokai. Initially there is the reaction everyone would have of "holy crap ahhhhhhh". Later though as the story develops the characters change with the story which is a nice change from characters who start and finish exactly the same. The series is sadly short, but I feel that if they continued it, the show would turn in to a another never ...

  • ~For those who love yokai theme
    If you enjoy anime about yokai, exorcists, etc, this anime might be for you. I would not rank it as high as some other animes in the same genre, let's just say if XXXholic and Mushishi are 10 this anime is like 7 overall. It is a light comedy and somewhat similar to Natsume Yuujinchou - both are similarly about yokai world without being too gore and dark.

  • Beautiful artwork, lovely story
    This anime, was just beautiful to watch. I didn't want to stop watching it when I did! I love the characters, and their dynamic. The bond that develops between all the characters is natural and pleasant to watch. I hope that something else comes from this anime.

  • Fun and well done. Enjoyed it a lot!
    A fun light romp but with enough emotion and character depth to make the story line interesting. They didn't rely on overused stereotypes and the story's universe was well constructed. A fun take on human/yokai interactions too. Was perfect for destressing after work or when i just wanted something light.
