So, who’s ready to get morose?! … … … wait…
Earlier today, Funimation took to Twitter to announce that they will stream The Morose Mononokean II as part of their Winter 2019 simulcast lineup. Crunchyroll confirmed in a blog post that Funimation will produce a SimulDub for the series.
The Morose Mononokean hits Japanese TV on January 5. Crunchyroll will stream the series as a simulcast, though they haven’t announced a specific premiere date as of press time.
Itsuro Kawasaki (L/R: Licensed by Royalty, Magical Girl Ore) will direct the new season at studio Pierrot Plus, with Takao Yoshioka (Elfen Lied, Watamote) taking charge of series composition.
Crunchyroll describes the title as:
Synopsis: The job of exorcists is to send yokai living in the mundane world for whatever reason back to the Underworld where they typically live. In order to repay his debt of one million “en” to master of the Mononokean Abeno Haruitsuki, Ashiya Hanae works as his employee, assisting him with exorcisms. One day, when the two of them return to the Mononokean after finishing a job, they receive an SOS from the Legislator, one of three major powers who govern the Underworld. They head to the Underworld immediately, where Ashiya gets caught up in an incident… The story of exorcist duo Ashiya and Abeno and the yokai resumes once again.
