oh liked this 1st episode a lot, intersting visually, also story sounds great. , thxs for the thread @Arjuna
Also the author of the manga was an historian and a specialist of Yokai/ghoul stories writing, he lost his arm during the war, but still managed to be a great mangaka
quoting wiki :
"His wartime experiences affected him greatly, as he contracted malaria, watched friends die from battle wounds and disease, and dealt with other horrors of war. Finally, in an Allied air raid, he was caught in an explosion and lost his dominant (left) arm. Regarding this life-changing event, a Nov. 30, 2015 NHK announcement of his death showed excerpts of a video interview with him at age 80, in which he said that as the only survivor of his unit, he was 'ordered to die' — a prospect he considered ridiculous. The result of Mizuki's wartime experience was a concurrent sense of pacifism and goodwill. In the same interview, he explained that his Yōkai characters can be seen only in times of peace, not war, and that he purposely created these supernatural creatures to be of no specific ethnicity or nationality as a hint of the potential for humanity. While in a Japanese field hospital on Rabaul, he was befriended by the local Tolai tribes people, who offered him land, a home, and citizenship via marriage to one of their women. Mizuki acknowledged that he considered remaining behind, but was shamed by a military doctor into returning home to Japan first for medical treatment to his arm and to face his parents, which he did reluctantly."

despite losing one of his arms, see how great is his art ♥

I did watch the first episode... it has an interesting vibe to it, so I'll keep it up for the moment. I have to admit though that ghost stories don't really do anything for me. Sometimes they can keep my interest though, so I'll give it a chance. Usually, they are very episodic and don't have a story arc, which is what drives me away in the end.

I don't know if I will watch it. I am already going to watch the Captain Tsubasa remake and I am trying to catch up with the anime from the previous season because I am incredibly late. If I catch up maybe.

A youkai series. The last I watched was, if I remember correctly, Kyoukai no Kanata, which wasn't all that good.
And the trailer isn't showing that much.

Maybe I will just check the first episode instead.

Tagging @Seven777

I like it. Just checked out the first episode.

Reminds me of Inuyasha for some reason.
This series first came in 1960's and this influenced nearly every Yokai Anime in Japan.So you may say it influenced Inuyasha too.

I just watched the episode and it's really good can't wait for the next episode 2.
Only downside is that it's making me miss Nurarihyon no Mago.:(
Same here since Nuraihyon no Mago was one of my favorite yokai series and I was sad to see it end.
