Good morning my loyal Painkillers, anime fans, and newbies to the site. Welcome to another edition of Anime Wednesday. Well fans, it is October, so everyone is getting ready for Halloween. So naturally, it just seem like a good time to give you guys a good horror anime to check out. So let’s get right into it! Here is Mononoke!
The show follows our protagonist, who is simply known as the “Medicine Seller” . He goes around, encountering mononokes. They are spirits that are attracted to the negative emotions of humans. The “Medicine Seller” holds off the mononoke long enough to understand why it is attached to this world. With that information, he uses it and his sword to exorcise the demon.
This is a very interesting show. It is set in the Edo period in Japan, and the animation style looks like drawings from that era. It’s already crazy enough that that the animation style makes everything look creepy, the show has little to no moment for the characters in the scenes, making it look and feel even creepier. If you want to watch this show for yourself, and experience the creepiness first hand, you can find this on Tubi. May I suggest that you keep the lights on when you watch! Until next time everyone!
