Crunchyroll is currently publishing chapters of the The Morose Mononokean manga on their platform. The company describes the series as:
“Exorcism” is the art of sending yokai who have somehow wandered into the living world back into the underworld, where they belong.
One day Hanae Ashiya, a high school student who’s been haunted by a yokai, happens to find the contact information of an exorcist called the “Mononokean” and pays him a visit. The exorcist he meets is a morose-looking young man, Haruitsuki Abeno, and for various reasons Ashiya ends up working for the Mononokean…
And so the story of the exorcist duo Ashiya and Abeno, and the yokai they meet in their adventures, begins.
Three promotional videos were released to promote The Morose Mononokean, which you can check out below:
