*Re-write due to system crash*

I admit to being a fan of folklore and mythology and, because of this, I'm always rather pleased when a series manages to incorporate the essence of such things into its plot to good effect. Its unfortunate that many series that make the attempt manage to fail in one way or another (Dark Myth being a prime example).

Thankfully, Mokke doesn't fall into that category.

Mokke started life as a manga series by Kamakura Takatoshi, and was first serialized by the seinen manga magazine "Afternoon Season Zoukan" in 2000. The manga was suspended after it's 14th issue however, and wasn't continued until March read more

Fans of the Mokke manga will want to steer well clear of this show. The anime adaptation is a horrible butchering, which seemingly retains only the characters and setting, and completely rewrites the story into sappy and ham-handed melodrama. Any trace of the subtlety and heart of the manga has been obliterated in one fell swoop.

Perhaps if you have never read the manga, you may find some enjoyment here, but as I am a fan of the manga, I can never see this as anything but a pale shadow of the original.

If theres one thing that anime can claim a rightfully deserved monopoly on, its the whimsical slice of life genre. No other media, that i know of, can produce so many shows with scenes of people eating breakfast and doing the laundry yet still manage to be interesting, (save perhaps some classic british series like Jeeves and Wooster), but it does it, and not only that but it often does it quite well, one only has to look at series' like Aria, Natsume Yujincho, Hibane renmei, to see this is true. But from here the trail follows that the best slice of life series' read more

Story:
The plot of this story may seem simple at first, but it's development is actually pretty interesting. Usually each episode focueses in one of the sisters (Chizuru or Mizuki) and how the deal with a supernatural creature they encounter (or supernatural event). The story was more funny and childish when Mizuki was the protagonist of the episode and more dramatic and serious when the protagonist was Chizuru. Personally, I found Chizuru's episodes more deep because they transmited her feelings of anxiousness, confusing and most importantly loneliness because of being able to see ghosts. Moreover the story is education as it shows elements about Japanese Literature read more

Anime: Natsume Yuujinchou
Both the main character in Mokke and Natsume Yuujinchou are able to see youkai, which ordinary people can't, which makes them special. Both series also show the main character trying to deal with them in different ways. Natsume give them back their names, while the main character in Mokke tries to protect her sister from being posessed. Both series have a nice feel and where mokke perhaps is a bit moreslice of life, they are both good anime series and if you liked Mokke, then you'll perhaps like this, since it s a bit similar.

Anime: Mushishi
Both deal with the supernatural, and both are told as stand alone episodes.

Although Mushishi is the "darker" of the two shows, Mokke is still definitely worth watching.

Anime: Pupipo!
The begin is almost the same: young schoolgirls who can see spirits and other creatures of Japanese folklore that are invisible for the other humans. These spirits are often mischievous and the girls despise them. But Pupipo! is almost superficial and parodic with random things, while Mokke is more deeper about the spirits. Finally, Pupipo! is more hilarious, while Mokke is more staid and balanced.

Anime: Bannou Yasai Ninninman
Main characters are young schoolgirls who can see spirits (in a different way), and the girls dislike these entities in both titles and in the same way. Mokke's ones are more mischievous and reflect the Japanese folklore, while Ninninman's ones reflect hated food eaten.

Anime: Mouryou no Hako
Both of them talk about Japanese fantastic creatures. Although in Mokke that is the main theme while in Mouryou no Hako it´s not. Also the old man who makes exorcisms in Mouryou no Hako and Kyougokudou are similar to Shizuru´s and Mizuki´s grandfather.

Anime: Re-Kan!
Another high school girl who sees spirits, and her younger sister who gets possessed by them. Life lessons and occasional sappiness instead of yuri bait, without ever becoming too serious.
