THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I hope they give some different designs for the youkai, the ones shown so far looks pretty similar...


I liked this episode better than the previous as the youkai actually presented itself more as a threat rather than for annoyance. Fun stuff. The cliffhanger though D:

He told him to pretend not saw, but he couldn't so he saved the girl and he's got trouble again immediately. There's limit to him sending the youkai. Their cooperation is needed to get to boss?

The boss wanted to be sent away, but difficult because it got stuck for a long time. Painful way either way, huh. Either way, it's ok, though, and some of the small ones are still there for it. The limit shown as he fell.

That little girl next.

It seems like youkai from each ep. is featured in one scene of ED each ep.

It was a good episode!

It was sad to see the boss youkai was being in a pain after he ate that pill! The small youkais were waiting for their boss!

Am loving this anime. The MC is refreshing, a bit on the less brave side but that doesn't mean he won't act when he thinks it's right, which takes strength :) He's also pretty amusing, and the blonde is not really as cold as I initially thought either! There's also the fact that the monsters are cute as hell.

Idk maybe I'm just happy it's not another harem, reverse harem, power in right arm or two boy sports anime :)

It was better than the first episode, this anime is getting more and more interesting imo
I felt bad for the big youkai and he took the medecine, but luckily that's a happy ending, I wonder if there will be sad/bad endings

Well probably now I can get the idea why Abeno told Ashiya to ignore any Youkai he sees and not interfering with them. And this episode it's fully tells about something known as "determination".

It's time to be a "Man". LOL

I always love that phrase, no matter who said it or from Anime it come from. >_<

Hanae Ashina kind of reminds me of Takashi Natsume (from Natsume Yuujinchou) when he wanted to help that big youkai, I loved when he wanted to do something but was frightened to death! Hahah, I can't wait for the next episode, when I think we will be eable to meet the Kistune girl :D

Big boss gree has a parasite root on him and wanted his children to go the underworld before he died :'(
But Ashiya convinced him to live and survives Abeno's medicine and they have a happy end :)
Abeno opened the portal 3 times, that must be why he collapsed.

When Abeno opened the portal and the little ones were waiting right there for their parent, my eyes felt ticklish. It was a heartwarming episode :)

And I really like Ashiya. He might seem like your average not so interesting character, but he continues to surprise you. He has his own ideas about things and isn't afraid to voice them, not to mention, he admits he's scared lol.

Zenko next episode! Although why does she have tinted lips :/ She looked more androgynous in the manga, imo.

It always amuses me whenever Ashiya annoys Abeno by being himself XD Love the sub for keeping the Big Boss Scree name. I didn't tear up when watching this episode like I did reading the chapter but it's still a great adaption

Gosh this ep took me through a feels trip. I thought the little ones were dangerous but they were really just little cuties. I felt so bad for big boss when he took the Medicine but love his dedication towards the little ones, his children. Then that heart touching moment of the little ones waiting. It would have been so sad if they waited and the big boss never came. I can already tell this will be a great series!

This continues to be a very pleasant show. It'll do until we get the next season of Natsume. The youkai are all cute, and so far they've been getting surprisingly happy endings.

I feel like this series shouldn't be this oddly satisfying and pleasant so far but it is and the episode was over before I knew it.

While it doesn't particularly carry a melancholic atmosphere all the way throughout, both episodes have tugged at my heart a bit. The more tender moments are done just in time.

Thank goodness, I thought they would make it sad by killing off the big Yokai or not succeeding in bringing him to the Underworld...I was not prepared for feels, so I'm happy everything turned out well !

It is fun to watch, I wonder if Abeno really isn't a Yokai ? Either way, they might visit the Underworld because of what we see in the OP.

That bit when people thought the MC was an esper was funny too.

This was a good episode. It was nice to see the Boss reunited with the small ones.
Will keep watching this.

To be honest? For a clearly low-budget show, this is really good. The animation looks nice, the music is starting to be placed better, the tone is warm and comforting, the characters are consistent, the story is well-written and well-paced, and the direction is fantastic.

Here's hoping they can keep this going.

Aaaaaaaa this episode was much better than the first. And it had way more feels than the first one too, at least for me anyways. Though I have only known him a short while, I will miss Big Boss Scree, hope he and his children are able to live happily in the underworld.

Oh man. This is cute. But I miss Fuzzball.
But I did love Ashiya's change. He ISN'T a huge wimp after all! And I love the Boss Scree thing. So cool. And I love Ashiya's talk with him.
I hope this isn't just episodic. I want more of an arc.

I loved it. It's like a more comedic but touching Natsume Yuujinchou-ish series. Those green artichokes with eyeballs are so cute, even their papa is cute. I got teary-eyed when they were waiting for papa artichoke to enter the underworld with them.

The first and second episodes are somewhat emotional. This second ep was way better though, and I like the MC's change of a scared wimp to somewhat brave. This is kind of a good anime. Hope it keeps up the level it's at right now.

Yet again a touching and heartwarming episode involving youkai. I thought the boss would be some evil youkai whose ate humans. Now I'm really curious about what's really happening in the Underworld hmmm (´~`)

Loved this episode! Heartwarming~ The big youkai looked scary at first, but never judge a book by its cover, turns out to be a nice sweet guy. Love the comedic parts too with Abeno.

I was half expecting the big youkai to fight Abeno and Ashiya in some sort of exorcist vs. demon battle probably something like

Exorcists: Yahhh, you're going back to the underworld!!!
Youkai: Nooooo, you can never exorcise me
*insert flashy lights and effects and talismans*

...or something like that. Turned out to be a touching story of family bonds. I almost shed a tear. I like it!

Didn't enjoy both episodes at all.
Pretty boring episode again.

Ashiya's a pretty straight forward character huh? I didn't expect that big Scree (lol) to want to send everyone to the Underworld. Glad it didn't turn out to be a problem though. I'm surprised that Abeno was able to do it, considering he said he wouldn't be able to when Ashiya first asked ... I'm guessing that's because he originally thought about doing them all separately or something? Also I may have missed something but this is a different day than episode 1 right? I assume it must've been otherwise he wouldn't have been able to open the door that many times. That medicine thing sure is interesting - I wonder if it has other uses? Looks like he's had some bad experiences with it previously. Oh well, pretty good episode nonetheless. On to the next! :P
