    Lowdown:

    The modern fantasy manga centers on Arata Miyako, a new government worker assigned to the Shinjuku Ward Office's "Nighttime Regional Relations" department. Each of Tokyo's 23 wards has one such department, which were established to solve paranormal and occult-related events. Arata can understand non-human speech that no one else understands, and he encounters a youkai (supernatural entity) at Shinjuku Gyoen park that calls him Abe no Seimei — the name of a historical Japanese occultist and diviner.

    Crunchyroll has added the anime to its spring simulcast lineup. They're also streaming an English-subtitled version of the first promotional video.

    This is fun! You could almost imagine this as a sequel to yokai apartment :D

    Its a mix of men in black and ghostbusters. Its quirky but understandable. Its slightly bland but not in a negative way.

    I recommend it :)

    This is really good. Just got to the newest episode and the characters feel real. Theyve given them some background and now a new event ties some stuff together. Looking forward to more!

    Im really loving the series. Its got a good mix of humor and drama. It got a little formulaic but still really good. I definitely recommend it.
