Kenji Nakamura is directing once again for the anime film, with Twin Engine producing. Following a delay that moved it out of last year, Mononoke will open in Japan on July 26, 2024.

This follows the 12-episode Mononoke TV anime, which itself is a spinoff of the Ayakashi – Samurai Horror Tales anime. The series is available to stream on The Roku Channnel, Netflix and Crunchyroll, which describes it like so:

In feudal Japan, evil spirits known as mononoke plague both households and the countryside. Only one person has the power to kill them where they stand: the Medicine Seller. But in order to draw his spirit-slaying sword he must first understand the Form, Truth, and Reason of the mononoke. Armed with sharp wit, he wanders from place to place striking down the evil spirits in his wake.
