After a successful and popular run (especially with the ladies) in 2016, The Morose Mononokean is returning with a new season. The anime’s official website recently updated, and it revealed that the anime is in fact getting a second season.
The announcement also revealed that Yuuki Kaji and Tomoaki Maeno will reprise their roles as Hanae Ashiya and Haruitsuki Abeno, respectively. They also revealed that Magical Girl Ore’s Itsuro Kawasaki will be directing the second season over at Pierrot Plus. Here’s how Crunchyroll describes the anime’s story:
“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.
Expect the staff to reveal more details about this second season in the days ahead.
