The Morose Mononokean



This is very fun bring anime that is well worth the watch. It is also based on a manga series by the same name that I haven’t read.

We follow Ashiya Hanae, a high school boy who gets possessed by a Yokai and has to go to see Abeno Haruitsuki to exorcise it. However, this leaves him in debt to him and must work for him to pay off is debt. After the fuzzy yokai gives him the gift of seeing other yokais he aims to help them in any way he can.

This is a fun anime and it allows you a step away from reality for a while. I particularly like the stark contrast between the yokai work and the mundane world. The underworld is much bright in the animation in comparison to the mundane world. The character design is fantastic and they are nicely fleshed out. I kind of want a second season of this anime to be honest.
