Anime Review: Kiitarou Shounen no Youkai Enikki (Fall 2016)

Another 5m anime with 12 Episodes. 
The synopsis is probably bigger than my review...

This is the visual diary of Kiitarou's experience with youkai. He's a boy with a very strong spirit sense, but when he entered a forbidden storehouse, he was kicked out of his home. He soon found a new place to live, where he met a zashiki warashi (house spirit) named Suzu. He and Suzu soon began to attract all kinds of spirit creatures, starting with a nurikabe (appears as a wall that impedes travelers) and mokumokuren (appears as eyes in a torn paper wall). What kind of folkloric creature will he meet next?

What to say about this small anime that you can watch in one hour.
This is a funny anime about Youkai. You follow Kiitarou & Suzu (a house spirit). In each episode you've watch him interact with different Youkai and their relations between themselves and towards humans. Each episode is self-contain but very interesting. 

Kitsunemen no Onna with her big breasts give us some fan-service toward the series (only a couple of episodes). In my opinion, unless that kind of youkai is prone to that, I think it was not needed.

The music (in the end per example) was a nice addition. 

In the end I felt that this series could continue for 100 episodes if they want. After all there are a lot of different Youkai in Japanese Folklore.   

If you have an hour, go for it.
