July 2007 New Anime: Mononoke

Link: (official) (No English sub available yet)

Genres: Horror/Suspense
I've watched: 1 episode
Art style: ***Crazy***

Recommended to: People can accept this art style and like horror mysteries
Recommendation level: Anticipating

Summary: It seems that the story occurred after the last segment of Ayakashi - Japanese Classic Horror. It got the same crazy art style, and method for suspense. Story occurs in the same building (I think) as in the last segment of Ayakashi. The medicine sales man is back here once again to get rid of the daemons from the house.

Rating - first impression: 4 out of 5 (it's just so......unusual, gotta give a good rating for it's creativity)

Personal comments: Once I got over the crazy art style, weird conversion style, strange story telling style, I start to like it. Put it this way, there is nothing in this anime is "normal". It is produced by the noitaminA (Nodame Cantabile, Honey and Clover, Paradise Kiss, Ayakashi, etc), who is famous for its amazing innovations in both art, story telling, and comedy. This is one of the highly anticipated series of this season. For those that have not seen Ayakashi - Japanese Classic Horror, you can try to download them from or rent it from netflix
