    A show about a shop that rents out items with spirits infused inside of them.

    Airs: Sunday, July 22, 2018

    Studio: TMS Entertainment

    Crunchyroll

    The series is set during the Edo period, in the Fukagawa ward of old Edo (present-day Tokyo). Because the area is prone to fire and flooding, residents rent everyday items like pots, futons, and clothing from shops instead of purchasing them, so as not to impede them when they flee. Obeni and Seiji, an older sister and younger brother, run one such rental shop called Izumoya. However, mixed in with their inventory are tsukumogami, objects that have turned into spirits after a hundred years of existence. The siblings sometimes lend these sentient items to customers. Both Obeni and Seiji can see and talk to these spirits, and other tsukumogami often come to the store after hearing of the famed siblings.

    Episode 1

    Still just a rat in a cage.

    So it begins explaining what tsukumogami are, all while there's a job for Seiji as he lends a tsukumogami to get a rat back that apparently was stolen. But it turns out that the perceived thief was just a friend. The tsukumogamis are pretty interesting characters there, all while I like how Seiji is so great with reasoning being able to connect the dots like that. Pretty decent start here as it figures to at least be a fun show to watch, if anything, but nevertheless it's nothing spectacular as this feels somewhat like something aimed towards children.

    So I'll give it another episode or two before deciding on this show.

      Episode 2

      Just want to hang around.

      So now, the tsukumogami are fighting each other in a sumo tournament. This time, the tsukumogami comes in the form of hanging scrolls that need cleansing. These scrolls are just used for special occasions and then stowed away until the moment comes again, which is what the problem all amounted to. So just like that, Seiji works wonders again to appease a suffering tsukumogami.

      So with that, it's pretty clear that this show is on the outside looking in, and while I kind of enjoyed it, it's one of those shows where seeing it once means I have seen it all. I guess I'll give it one more, but that will absolutely be it unless in the unlikely case that it blows me away.
