THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Hmm so even humans seek exorcists for jobs. I think that old lady is a bit strict though, probably because she's doubtful about contacting Mononokean. Humans getting involved in supernatural affairs can be quite dangerous.

Ashiya feelings more and more of the pressure with his job ;o
The fuzzball playing with the ball is priceless imo XD

Humans this time? She asks to exorcist her room. She believes mysterious things, and her mother doesn't believe in that and the guy and is more persistent than her daughter. That gave the girl to open the door. Very scary youkai?

Turns out a shy Porcupine youkai that got angry. Main guy persuade it to calm down by telling the relations with him and Moja Moja. To deal with people who cannot see youkai is hard and cannot help it. It seems like fox youkai sensed some evil aura.

Porcupine youkai added to ED. Dealing with that youkai next.

Now this is a "plenty" work Ashiya have to do. Against "teacher-like and only believe in scientific thing" person. At least he doesn't have to deal with it for long.

Man I love this series. Ashiya brings out the heart in Abeno, Abeno brings out the resolve in Ashiya and Fuzzy... well he just brings the cuteness off the scales.

Also loving this episodic, individual Yokai solving format, always fun to see the Yokai and how Ashiya connects with them as Abeno makes sure things run smoothly. Ahhh, no tsunderes, powers in right arms, world ending organisms that the main character becomes a hybrid of, no school festivals and no beach episodes... bliss.

I also completely see why the mother reacted in such a way too, it does sound ridiculous and if you couldn't see them you'd have trouble believing it. Also, earthquakes are pretty common in Japan so it's not inconceivable a few would happen if you thought it wasn't yokai... maybe?

So we got a somewhat job driven episode this time. I was expecting some huge monster but no, yet another adorable fuzzball.

3/5

Exorcising a scared hedgehog yokai after a heartfelt talk with Ashiya.
Human mom is a skeptic and Ashiya's emotions make him upset.

One of the plus points of this series for me would be the OP and ED. I also love how they include each yokai thatz displayed in the episode in the ED when they r all sitting. Its a pleasure to guess where they would be sitting before ED starts xD. Fun games

Moja Moja is my favorite character in this series. He's like the series' Nyako-sensei or Pikachu.

He's so cute he's shivering in fear.

Ugh, that twin tail girl is so annoying. Still, that "evil spirit" was so darn cute. He was like a black sonic the hedgehog.
There is no such thing as an Anime elitist. You watch Anime, therefore, you are trash by society's standards.

Hmm, didn't really like this episode that much, but I guess we get to see how "normal" humans react to people "Exorcising yokai" ... I mean yeah, I can definitely see how that would be pretty hard to believe :P Definitely thought the yokai would be more "frightening" looking and not a small black hedgehog :P Anyway, yay more Zenko! I wonder what she wants with them ... I guess that scarecrow thing is causing problems maybe? :O

Uhh this is why I am not sold to this show. The yokai are really cute, and I kinda like the story behind each of them, but Ashiya is so cringey and so annoying. I really dislike that because he's the protagonist or the 'special one', he could just ignore logic and whatnot to talk-no-jutsu the yokai into submission, by doing the cliche thing, talk about his own past experience. I really dislike Ashiya's character sometimes. I know he's supposed to be learning, but I really couldn't stand his ignorance. And he's loud.

That mother was so annoying, judging people against her own life choices and opinions has never been nice or fair.

Anyway, it's nice to see Fuzzy be a part of the team!
