Mayonaka no Occult Koumuin (or Midnight Occult Civil Servants) is a supernatural mystery anime that aired during the Spring 2019 season. Produced by LIDENFILMS (who also produced Koi to Uso and Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo), the series follows the latest recruit of Shinjuku Ward Office's Nighttime Regional Relations Department - Miyako Arata. If you're looking for a show that's quick-paced and has lots of fighting scenes, this isn't the show for you. It's also not the show you're looking for if you want a show with the greatest animation you've ever seen. However, Mayonaka is a show that's still underappreciated for what it is - an easy-to-watch supernatural mystery show.
We are currently halfway through this season and I'm really surprised about the quality this time around. Usually, seasons are filled with quite a few mediocre shows, but Spring 2019 really does seem like a top season. Regardless, being halfway through the season means it's time to reflect on the past six/seven weeks and begin to form an opinion on the shows I've been watching. Some of these shows really have surprised me and, uh... not always for the better.
It's been an entire year since I've last done a "What am I watching?" post and that's because I've been avoiding seasonal anime so I could catch up on my backlog a little bit better. This all changed with The Promised Neverland, though and, admittedly, having something to look forward to watching every week really did wonders for my mood as well, as trivial as that sounds, so I've decided to get back into the swing of seasonal anime! Woo!
