Weird may be the new good.
Summary: It begins with a narration that a balance of humans, tengu and tanuki makes the city go round. Then it shifts to Yasabaro’s daily life and moments of recounting past with Benten. Apparently, after the Demon Cedar incident Benten left them and the master couldn’t fly anymore.
Thoughts: From all the premieres that I’ve watched so far, this is the first one I felt established it’s tone properly. It’s got a weird premise so the tone is rather weird as well. Although what worked most for me was the fact I was kept curious the whole time. There was an urge to find out how their lives ended up in that way. The animation is pretty good but it’s not the best I’ve seen from PA Works though. All in all, there’s more to look forward to.
Initial Rating: 7.5/10
