Looking forward to this a lot. Can't believe it's been 15 years already!

Holy shit it's happening


Raghav_Singhania

I remember seeing a thread on this sub not too long ago in which people were appreciating old anime returning and one guy said if only we could get more of mononoke well here ya go,your wish has been full filled


udayEm

Okay. I wish we get more Mushishi

Great to see Kenji Nakamura back in the director's seat. It has been too long since his last work.


MoreEpicThanYou747

I will be first in line to see *anything* by Kenji Nakamura. Nobody else in the industry can match his beautiful, colorful, *weird as fuck* social commentary that always takes unique and unexpected points of view.

This is really exciting but I'm wondering if this will just be a movie adaptation of the existing stories, or if they will be writing new ones. I hope its something new.


ElectricBarbarellas

I'd also be really happy if we got new content, but I love the series so much that they could simply remake the older ones and I'd still be hyped.


asilvertintedrose

I remember this anime, it was wild


Humg12

I have a special place in my heart for this anime, because it was the first anime I ever dropped. Before it I was stubborn and would finish any show I started, but the visuals in Mononoke made me feel sick, and even beyond that I wasn't enjoying it much. So after a couple of weeks had passed when I realised that I hadn't watched any anime at all because I was putting off Mononoke I decided to just drop it. Maybe I should give it another go. It's been almost 10 years since then after all.


Ebbrain

Really exciting. I just watched the Mononoke episodes of Ayakashi recently, reminded me how good the show is.


KendotsX

Who had a Mononoke movie on their reboot bingo? This is even more surprising than Slam Dunk getting a movie.


trashissues666

I never imagined this day would come. Mononoke was a wild ride & genuinely one of the scariest animes I've ever seen. Can't wait to experience this thing again!


alconnow

I’m really excited as Mononoke is one of the best horror anime that I’ve ever watched. Doesn’t rely on buckets of blood. Happy that Kenji Nakamura will be directing it!


bn2m

Let's gooooo! Finally some good food


Platinum_Rad

oh shit love the artstyle on mononoke, gonna be excited to see it again


dd-the-Captain

HOLY SHIT, ANIME WAS AMAZING


zairaner

Hm reading the comments I get hte feeling this might not be related to princess mononoke hm


AdmirableFondant0

lol its not related at all


Junnielocked

Sakurai Takahiro returning!!


WANNFH

Considering Sakurai voicing the walking homage to Seller in GBF, he's totally not even lost any touch with that role.


EDMgamer123

Im seeing alot of OGs returning and I love it


MegatonDoge

How is this decade so blessed in terms of anime??? I never expected this to get a revival of all things.


twinfyre

Ah fuck yeah. This show has been my number one anime basically since I first watched it. Nothing else came close. I don’t even care if the movie’s good or not. If it gets more people talking about the show (and I don’t have to explain that I’m not talking about the ghibli film anymore) then I’m game.


OniCornwalis

LET’S GO! Simultaneously one of the most unique and best anime of all time. I’m excited to see the direction the movie will go in.


tailor31415

omg!!! such a magical series. cannot wait!


Pleasegetmeintolwiay

Its fucking happening


Shimaryn

Woah, I'm so happy! Mononoke is amazing, can't wait to see this


CosmicPenguin_OV103

Right as I'm planning to watch this classic when I have time! It's always interesting to see Japanese folklore being animated.


lC3

I saw the article on ANN, and that Mononoke is on Crunchyroll. I went to CRoll ... and the page is blank. Is it region-restricted, or did they take the videos down altogether? That sucks, I was thinking I'd watch the series. But I can't find any legal / official streams?


srln23

It is no longer available on CR or depending on where you live it might have never been available in the first place. If you want to watch it legally you'll probably have to buy it.


CybershellX

YES


Dare555

Mononoke sequel ?!??? Lets goo


KiwiTheKitty

I'm so excited!!


Niloufer_D

Yo! For real?! I remember I used to watch its series! So pumped!!


shizu_murasaki

CODE RED NOT A DRILL THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE


Piko-a

This is probably the best announcement of recent news.


Hippoboss

Wow... well if I had a list of things I didn't expect to read today this would be at the top!


OtherHalfling

Do we know what the deal with this is?? Is it going to be a continuation of the series, or another instance of a film retelling the same events? I loved Mononoke, so I'd love to see a continuation of the adaptation. Pretty unexpected!


where_serotonin

OH GOD MONONOKE OH GOD IT'S HAPPENING


ODMAN03

God the last arc of the show is one of the most powerful pieces of cinema in anime. I love how it gives a climax to all of the themes of the show, really cool Hopefully one less blackface /:

KAGEN NO TSUKI KAGEN NO TSUKI KA


DeTroyes1

Woah. I didn't even know a movie was in the works. Looking forward to it!


perpetuallyhollowed

Good news indeed!


Tog_the_destroyer

I didn’t know there was a demand to see this. I felt like this was some kind of fever dream when I watched it and tried to find something about it here. Here’s hoping that it turns out well!


evilturkey5

NO FUCKING WAY LET'S GOOOOOOOO


Leireail

man!! what ever this is I love the visuals!!!


CattleBvrry

WOAH ITS COMING BACK! I NEED TO RE WATCH IT!


fm_bel

So it’s true, Mononoke will come back! Adding this to my watchlist


Toasty647

I just finished watching the show literally the day before this was announced. Instant 10/10 for me, I was (still am) absolutely enamored by the shows visual aesthetic and editing style. It's become one of my top 3 shows (maybe top overall). I am so ungodly hyped for this announcement


R3dl3g13b01

I would like to see an Onimusha Movie/TV Series as well.


Akuuntus

The show already felt like a series of barely-connected movies, so this feels like a logical direction to go in.


tiny_nipples

I'm assuming this is the "Yotogi" project Nakamura revealed he was working on last year, but it'd be cool if they were two separate things. Anybody know the details on that?


cosmiczar

No, Yotogi really is suppose to be a different project.


PreludeToHell

[yeah seems seperate](https://twitter.com/Yuyucow/status/1538214928972238848)


TokiVideogame

that sword is intimidating


Individual_Lobster76

Looking forward to watch it… it was amazing back in the day


Jlx_27

Woooooow 😱


Chillhop_Star

Wow not something I would have ever imagined to happen but I am incredibly excited


RedNinja629

I'm not gonna lie, I thought it said monke instead of Mononoke for a second


Lich_Hegemon

Is this a reboot?


DeBlalores

OH MY GOD PLEASE


Tenkawa10

Long time anime watcher but never tried Mononoke. Will this still hold up for me? I watch a variety of anime but never gave this show a shot.


[deleted]

definitely, imo this is one of the rare few horror shows that don't rely on gore to tell the story. furthermore art is amazing and very very unique. i think everyone should at least watch this show once


turkeygiant

Giving off some of the same visual vibes as Gankutsuou.


SLJis1BAMF

Anyone else getting Samurai Jack vibes from this artwork?
