After the underworld arc, I'm glad to see Zenko return.

I like that tailed fox Haruitsuki for some reason. It has a mischievous personality and wants to play a game, kinda like a kid. However, I feel bad that Zenko got involved..

Good episode, had fun watching this one considering how sneaky that fox is.

Very scared to get scolded, but unexpected answer came that he loled. Next day the girl from ep.4 came to thank him and show weird scars. It seems like she can see youkai now. Kitsune youkai... It bit her in order to get Ashiya to hang it out with hide-and-seek. Wow, so childish.

Main guy got forced to stay over, and came to temple at night alone. So they've been playing multiple times. Main guy knows the personality of that guy and knew it pretended to be him. When he mentioned about playing for 3 days, he remembered its name. It came to see him for two rumors, including him killing his master...

ED including kitsune youkai.

More info. and new youkai next.

Really enjoyed this episode. The fox youkai is bad news. He got really threatening in the end. The previous master of Mononokean was Aoi who we have yet to see. Zenko is back but is not alright. As hinted Ashiya also have some supernatural powers of his own. can't wait to see his other side which scared the hell out of that underworld shopkeeper.

Yeah, that's so like Ashiya for scared over Abeno's praise. LOL
But now it's time for another [s]probably[s] serius trouble, more like a survival game. Even so, it seems the fox is just want to play but with "wrong" way of asking it.
And does that hand earlier that touch Ashiya's back is Fuzzy's hand? It seems somehow, pretty long.

It seems like Hanae knows someone called 'Aoi', maybe his dad ?
It's nice to see Zenko again !

I am pleasantly surprised this anime has come to have a very serious tone to it. Exactly an anime made for me. It got me sold to start reading the manga soon. I'm so curious about Abeno-san's past btw.

Yay! More Zenko! Really enjoyed the hide and go seek part. I'm pretty damn sure this "Aoi" wasn't killed by Abeno.

Ashiya is such a dork he is adorable!!
The mood got sort of heavy at the end. Kinda want then to talk about Abeno's past with his master to see if Ashiya can help him get some closure.
Also, Foxy is in the cover art, so will he get on friendly terms after they have some heart to heart talk??

What's most interesting in this episode is Abeno's power, it was red color, and seems 'normal' if he had it... but if Abeno have it, then Ashiya in episode 5 might 'normal' too

And love Yahiko's voice! <3

Definitely my favorite episode so far. Occasionally Hanae has some really good moments and this episode was full of em. Like when Hanae got happy about being praised, I thought that was fantastic character reaction/interaction. ("Could this be a death flag?" LOL and when he couldn't stop grinning haha) And when he saw through the Abeno disguise~! But half the time he annoys me otherwise. D;

I like the fox's voice and look how cute he is transformed back to his "original"? form but else-wise he is some bad news lol
Based off the flashback, and Abeno apparently not working as a payment for debt, maybe Aoi is Abeno's father?

I get so happy whenever I see Moja on-screen. I always look forward to seeing him on this show, even for just a few seconds.

I love Yahiko in his human/yokai form he's such a cute kid.

Yahiko is such a cute fox, although he seems to be sadistic.
Zenko's back! What a cute little girl
Oh oh Haruitsuki's dark past will be revealed in the next episode :(

Oh right, shes so small I forgot they were near the same age... and I... kind of just forgot about her completely.

That fox is pretty freaking cool, and pretty creepy with it just appearing out of no where, then it turned into an eight year old throwing a fit and I remembered this was a comedy and laughed a bit. Can't wait too see what happens next episode, that ending got pretty dark.

The fox didn't seem as threatening as I thought it'd be, except near the very end.

oh man usually I love fox yokai but this one... fucking brat believing everything it is hearing >.> everything we've seen so far does point in the direction of Abeno not having killed the previous master but simply inherited his role. To think that fox jumped on the bandwagon makes him so much less than the average portrayed fox yokai :(

His intentions are not looking so good either. Hope he isn't looking for a fight. For his own sake. He can only lose in the long run no matter the outcome.

edit: nearly forgot the best part. Another episode with Zenko :D Obviously they had to do the height-joke again. I kinda hope she's a permanent addition to the team!

Zenko is back, yeah!
And the fox knows Abeno and seems that want revenge for thinking that he killed Aoi.

ZENKO!!! Nice seeing her again :D Yahiko's kind of annoying with the hide and seek all the time, but transforming into Abeno was a nice trick. I wonder what happened when they met eight years ago? Anyway, maybe we'll finally get down to the bottom of how Abeno became the master of the Mononokean ... Aoi was Ashiya's grandfather right? :O
