Here we are at the end of the season and it is time for one last chat with Irina about The Morose Mononokean (at least this season and fingers crossed that we eventually get a third). We're over on Irina's site today so to check out our full discussion about The Morose Mononokean Season 2 … Continue reading The Morose Mononokean Season 2 Episode 13 With Irina and Karandi
Irina joins me again this week to discuss the Morose Mononokean Season 2, this time we're talking about episode 8. It isn't too late to join in with us so if you've missed any of the previous posts they are linked at the end for you to enjoy.
This week we see Hanae dealing with his fear after nearly being killed last week while Abeno tries to help him develop a yokai detection ability. It is perhaps the best episode yet and this season just keeps getting better.
Overview: Ashiya Hanae picks up what he thinks is a bag on the side of the road, however it turns out to be a yokai who becomes attached to him (quite literally for awhile). Desperate to be free of it, Ashiya turns to an exorcist (who turns out to be a class mate). Now, Ashiya … Continue reading The Morose Mononokean Series Review
Review: The episode is called 'The End' and while it certainly ended the crisis with Ashiya's vision it didn't really offer any other insight or resolution. That and they kind of just gathered every character together and used their emotions to solve the problem. Really? Anyway, the final episode ends much the way the show … Continue reading The Morose Mononokean Episode 13
Review: For the first time this series has decided to actually take a problem seriously and drag it out. While it almost seems certain that everything will be fine by the end of next episode, it was nice to see the characters we've met over the season rallying to solve Ashiya's problem. And Fuzzy clinging … Continue reading The Morose Mononokean Episode 12
Review: I feel this episode would have had far more impact if my internet connection hadn't continuously dropped while trying to watch it. As a result, I saw the episode in 2 - 5 minute blocks with a lot of frustrated waiting and reloading in between. The episode picks up from last episode and we … Continue reading The Morose Mononokean Episode 11
Review: Once again the 'problem' set up in the previous episode turned out to be not much and while Ashiya and Abeno did succeed at exorcising a yokai (helped him move on from past regret), the reason they went to the farm was actually not addressed in the end. As much as I like the … Continue reading The Morose Mononokean Episode 10
Review: Humans doubt exorcists. There's a revelation for Ashiya. In what was probably the least interesting episode yet, Abeno and Ashiya are called to a house by a girl who thinks her room is possessed. Turns out she's right, but her mother is not particularly thrilled at her spending her allowance on an exorcism. Anyway, … Continue reading The Morose Mononokean Episode 9
Review: This show has done this twice now. Set up a conflict at the end of one episode only to resolve it within minutes of the next making it more or less a non-issue. Abeno's foul mood about the jobs this episode aside, very little happened after the issue with the fox was finalised. Yes, … Continue reading The Morose Mononokean Episode 8
