Hiro Shimono and Koji Yusa join the cast of the second season of the Fukigen no Mononokean anime

The official website of the animated television adaptation of the manga Fukigen na Mononokean by Kiri Wazawa has revealed two new voices that will join the cast of its second season.

Hiro Shimono will be the voice of the new character Shiho, while Koji Yusa will be the voice of Gyosei. Both are two of the three most influential people in the world of the yokai.

Itsuro Kawasaki (Magical Girl Ore, Rental Magica) will be the director of the anime under Pierrot Plus, replacing Akira Iwanaga, while Takao Yoshioka (High School DxD, Your Lie in April) will return as the person responsible for the scripts.

Yuuki Kaji and Tomoaki Maeno will resume their roles as Hanae Ashiya and Haruitsuki Abeno respectively.

Hanae Ashiya is a high school student who gets upset by a yokai. One day, by chance, he discovers the existence of an exorcist known as "Mononokean" and decides to pay him a visit. The exorcist is a taciturn-looking young man named Haruitsuki Abeno, and for various reasons, Ashiya ends up working for him. Thus begins the story of the duo of exorcists Ashiya and Abeno, and the yokai that they will meet during their adventures.

Wazawa launched the manga on the Gangan Online website of Square Enix in 2013, and his compilation volume number 11 was put on sale last June. The first season of the anime premiered in 2016 and could be seen via Crunchyroll.
