THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I have to admit, they're doing a good job with this Underworld arc. That little yokai furball is also back to normal as well.

They adapted the part with the Newt Lake quite well and also got business done. Decent episode. I wish we get more 2 part episodes like this especially with the legislator and underworld rules.

Wow, he changed when he saw the youkai bleed. He was woken when hit. The rumor of when he got the position is... Suwabe-san's character is the one who choose the helper? And he's brother of the assistant of the pharmacist.

He doesn't get sick anymore when that little youkai's on anymore. To visit that person immediately. He immediately knew he's human and judge if he's suitable to be the helper. And he's for sure about the little youkai be the helper.

ED adding Suwabe-san's character.

Eel looking youkai next?

whoa! I like how they give you little pieces of info about the bigger plot! -how it works in the Underworld and everything.

I am up to date with the manga, and I cant spoil since I dont know yet, but I am really eager to know why everybody is triggered by Ashiya"s name... obviously he has habilities beyond usual humans but...

But ( although it hasn"t been confirmed) I am pretty sure the previous Master died after Abeno gave him(her?) that medicine...

By the way, I am in love with Abeno by now! -dont exactly know why XD

So basically Ashiya needs to be "legally" registered as Abeno's working-assistant? Well that's just like real life works.
And this "Legislator" person is... Even if it's just the words.

Really good episode! I am really enjoying this show, and it was a seasonal that I decided to pick up on a whim after the fact. I am glad I did, I would have missed out on a nice mellow, feel good type of show. Its like SoL with a hint of action. I think I will enjoy this all the way to the end.

episode score: 5/5

Fuzzy has joined the party! <-------- Best part of the episode!!!!!

Well I read the manga as well but the way everyone looks at Ashiya, I want to know the answer. Abeno said about something that lives inside Ashiya. Rippou said parasythe scrup. But I started to think differently. Whaf if (if he lives later in the manga), he's Aoi. He said that the way Rippou looked at him felt familiar.

I really loved both of the Underworld episodes. I'm glad to see that Moja will be staying as an employee of the Mononokean. The introduction of Legislator was interesting too, I wonder if we're going to see more of him later (maybe as a reference to Abeno's past?).
I hope Ashiya's rage moment' is going to be explained further in the series, he really didn't seem like a normal human back then.

Ashiya gets mad after Fuzzy gets hurt by the capybara but Aben deals with the situation.
The Legislator makes the rules and he let's Ashiya stay and fuzzy becomes an employee too :)
Seems Abeno's master might have died from the parasite scrub :(

I'm not so sure, but the way it looked when he snapped and started being really scary and creepy it almost looked like he was holding onto that youkais soul.

Definitely loving this anime! The characters are so good, and Fuzzy is the best!

Not only does it have a good story, but it gives me my yokai fix until Natsume airs this fall!
So glad that I'm not a huge manga reader, because the manga readers WHINE WAY TOO MUCH and have to RUIN every adapted anime for the ANIME ONLY WATCHERS!

I'm really liking this series, but it gets a bit boring at times. Curious about the past behind Ashiya. Also I'm amazed at how highly the manga is ranked! If the anime gets the same score as the manga after the completion of it's run (which it probably won't) It'll be ranked behind FMA (2003). Wow.

3/5

Once again the show is so uneventful that you can sum up the entire episode in a single sentence, but for some reason I still find it enjoyable to watch (despite my dislike of the MC's VA). If this continues I feel like it would end up being a good show to recommend to somebody who wants something relaxing and simple to watch.

Ashiya managed to scare that annoying creature, serves him right. And for a second, he turned really dark, too. What a loser tho, he ran away after acting all high and mighty.

I want to pat Moja too! Glad his injury is alright

The legislative is a fun guy--like how he messes around with the rules, but apologizes anyway. Good character

Fun episode.

i'm very happy to see fuzzy again x3
overall it was a really good and enjoyable episode. i like how they introduced the new character, i mean rippou. pretty good actually than what i'd expected. and i'm very interesting in Ashiya when he got mad that the yokai who was about to cut his hand, threw fuzzy and injured it. he has somekind of power that's what i assume.

accoding to the op visual, the girl whom her father is a priest of a certain temple will be appearing in the future episode again ? i can't wait to see her again tbh.

looking foward to the next episode.

The Underworld arc. is so beautiful and I wish it had continued for a few more episodes. Yes! finally we get to see Rippou-sama in his element. Suwabe fits this role perfectly.

I'm so happy that Fluff Puff got recruited and I kinda saw this coming, since i'm reading the manga.
Itsuki seriously needs a woman. Like damn, I sense so much sexual frustration in him lol Rippou needs to hook a man up ASAP lol

My favorite episode thus far! Moja moja came back and is now hired! The legislator is so hot and is one of my favorite seiyuus ever!

This is the second time someone hesitated when they realized his name was Ashiya. I'm about to read the manga to see how much of Ashiya and his power is explained, but I feel like it's still a mystery.

Loving these summer animes!

Still not explained in the manga, but someone said a very intersesting theory on another website! Abeno would somehow be related ( or inspired ) by Abe no Seimei historical and folklore character. When reading the wikipedia page of that character, it is mentioned that Ashiya Doman was his rival!!!! Well still does not explain anything within the sorry, but I find it very interesting ! Plus their names in Kanji differ from just one character : Abeno Haruitsuki: 安倍 晴齋 Abe no Seimei : 安倍 晴明 .

If you have not read the manga,

Well the family name Ashiya is probably related to Ashiya Douman, Abe no Seimei's rival. So that explains why the MC has spiritual power and might have more hidden powers from his family.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

YYAAAAYYY Fuzzy is a permanent addition :D Even without that a great episode though. Yokai think Abeno killed the previous master and the teaser at the end by that guy makes it look like he actually did but not because Abeno wanted to. Really curious what happened. I hope we get to hear that in the next few episodes :<

it looks like I'm the only one who doesn't like the Fuzzball :P Anyway, I quite like the Underworld portions since we get to see why everyone's so scared of Abeno ... he "killed" the previous master? I'm thinking that may have been the previous Ashiya, maybe his dad or something? :O Plus I like the Legislator (dem vocal courds right :3) and his interactions with Abeno ... interesting how he didn't want to hire youkai as employees. I guess that's a touchy subject with him though XD Well, looks like we're back to the human world next episode so we'll see how that goes :3

I fucking love Moja Moja. He's my favorite character. I would love to have a plushie of him. I'm glad he's going to work with Itsuki and Ashiya from now on.

Speaking of Ashiya, he has a strange power. He might be a yokai or cursed or some shit like that.

Aw... the seen where Ashiya "changed" didn't feel threatening at all -- disappointing D:
They needed to add more darker tones to have that "dark" feel to it like the manga (hint the spoiler)
