What's best arc?
English titles in parentheses for Crunchyfags
Umibozu(Sea Bishop)>Nue(Japanese Chimera)>Bakeneko(Goblin Cat)>Noppera-bo(Faceless Monster)>Zashiki-warashi
To me, it failed at creating the same kind of suspense Bakeneko was brimming with. Fortunately, Sea Monk came right after it and, as a sucker for thinly veiled whodunit stories, I immediately fell in love with it.
It was damn close between the lost at sea arc and that one but I just had to give the edge to Umibozu with that twist in the episode of the arc
Best part of Nue though is when the MC reveals he was trolling the dead the whole time
Is it because Bakaneko I had lots of people actively resisting and evading the Medicine Seller's inquiries to the extent that he became injured before people spilled their guts out to him compared to later stories? If so then I'm in the same boat.
Bakaneko I > Noppera = Umibozu > Zashiki > Bakaneko II > Nue
That arc was 2creepy4me. Made me think twice of sleeping on richly decorated old inns.
I enjoyed the Nue(Japanese Chimera) the most, but Bakeneko and the Inn arc are close second.
Umibozu > Nue > Zashiki-Warashi > Noppero Bo > Rail Wars
