  • Every Episode is enjoyable
    I truly enjoyed every episode. The character relationships make the show more interesting. The show is similar to natsume yuujinchou, but this show is more interesting because there are more aspects to it than solving daily problems and the characters are more entertaining. I hope to see a season 3- which we will probably get based off the ending of season 2.

  • Refreshing perspective
    I truly enjoyed this series and look forward to more of it. Learn more about the hidden history of Mononokean, the old master

    I am curious how the series plan to continue as they cannot forever stay in high school and how this would affect their college lives and such onward.

  • A good marathon watch
    It was never boring, but not revolutionary either. It kept a good balance. The characters are likeable, the graphics are nice, good voice acting, interesting plot. If you liked Natsume Yuujincho I would definitely give this one a go. The only thing I was missing was more depth to the story, although I think we might get that later in the story.

  • Everything I love in a show
    This has everything I love in a show. I love demons and that mystery of the past, but I do wish the latest episodes adhered more to the original. Its has just the right amount of both calm and funny episodes and also cliff-hanger and suspenseful episodes. (Not exactly people dying episodes, but learning of the past has always been that hidden secret that I can't wait to find out about).

  • 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.

    Reminds me of Natsume Yuujinchou
    I would say that the morose mononokean is not the best that can be produced from this genre but it's still an enjoyable, light hearted anime to watch. The characters are okay, the scenery is pretty cool, and there isn't much of a plot. If you just want something kind of going in the background then this is a good choice.
