After saving a strange fuzzy demon, Hanae Ashiya ends up spending his first week of high school in the nurse's office; the demon latched onto him and started absorbing his energy, deteriorating Ashiya's health. One day, he accidentally finds a flyer related to exorcism and desperately contacts the exorcist Haruitsuki Abeno for help. They meet in the Mononokean—a suspicious-looking tearoom that Abeno owns—and though reluctant to exorcise the creature at first, Abeno helps Ashiya before asking for a fee. Unable to pay, Ashiya has no choice but to work for the Mononokean to pay off his debts. As time passes, the two boys learn to work together and their perspectives start to change, while secrets are revealed, one by one.

Surprisingly good.

Heck, this is my first time making a review, hope you like it.

In this world, there's entities known as 'demons' and are invisible to most humans. The main character is your average student, normal, charismatic and nice we're used to see (he reminds me a lot of the mc of Barakamon).
Once, he found a thing in the street that he first thought it was a toy, turns out it was an demon and for some reason, wouldn't let go of him.
He had no idea of what it is and what to do with that thing attached to him, making him go ...

Though it may seem like another simple youkai story at first glance, what really makes Fukigen na Mononokean shine is the interplay between its two central characters. The “youkai of the week” format is really a vehicle for character development as Abeno and his trusty assistant, Ashiya, help each other through different trials.

Ashiya’s effervescent personality and Abeno’s cold and practical demeanor make them an unlikely yet somehow complementary pair. Ashiya’s warmth and empathy is exactly what Abeno lacks but needs. Having spent the majority of his life in the company of youkai, Abeno is not good at getting along with humans. Ashiya is there to ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (25/93 eps)
This series’ main adorable animal companion (tm) is a white furry ball with small legs – and the whole manga is like that: fluffy, sweet, inoffensive and, frankly, somewhat of a simple shape.

It’s a feel good series about cute boys helping mascot-worthily cute yokai. The main characters are boys, because this manga is aimed at women, and women tend to like to look at pretty boys, it’s not that these characters have any gender features or interests. I don’t think that even the BL-shipping bait here is all that strong. There’s a couple of female characters, but they’re your typical sideline strong-headed women of female-oriented ...
