The start of Hanae Ashiya's high school career has not been easy—he has spent all of the first week in the infirmary, and his inexplicable condition is only getting worse. The cause of his torment is the mysterious fuzzy creature that has attached itself to him ever since he stumbled upon it the day before school began.

As his health continues to decline and the creature grows in size, Hanae comes across a flyer advertising an exorcist who expels youkai. Desperate and with nothing left to lose, he calls the number and is led to the Mononokean, a tea room which suddenly appears next to the infirmary. A morose-sounding man, Haruitsuki Abeno, reluctantly helps Hanae but demands payment afterward. Much to Hanae's dismay, he cannot afford the fee and must become an employee at the Mononokean to work off his debt. And to make things worse, his new boss is actually one of his classmates. If Hanae ever hopes to settle his debt, he must work together with Abeno to guide a variety of dangerous, strange, and interesting youkai back to the Underworld.

This anime is surprisingly amazing with its plots and actions.

the 1st season was a bit of comedia with a sprinkle of seriousness which gave it a slice of life vibe anime, but it gets more serious and interesting in the second season where sakae was introduced and I was really excited watching it it.

whereas in season 1 , I was taking it more as a comfort anime because it was funny , soft and light hearted , it felt like an old, nostalgic anime and it got gradually better and more exciting .

the only objections I had were : animation could have been ...

Mixed Feelings
I found myself getting bored after episode four, just because I realise that each episode has the same formula: character faces a problem, try to solve them and at the end, the character will show how determined they are to solve the problem by sacrificing anything they have. Therefore the plot is very predictable and did not give me any excitement at all.

The characters - especially the main character - is the type of character I will always avoid when watching or reading a story. He's just very annoying, or everyone is rather annoying in general. However, I told myself to be unbiased and ...

Preliminary (10/13 eps)
To be honest this anime is probably intended for a very young audience . It gets extremely boring and has really no purpose. There isn't even very much material to discuss. It can be described as a very good anime for young children. There are generic morals to be learnt, cute "animal sidekick", appealing art, and interesting concept. Overall it just isn't very enjoyable for older individuals.

The one thing that this anime has is quality art. The characters are generic and not remotely interesting. (DON'T BE FOOLED THERE IS NO YAOI.) The humour is non-existent, the plot is nonexistent. The soundtrack can be ...
