So far, Yorozu Uranaidokoro Onmyoya e Yokoso (よろず占い処 陰陽屋へようこそ) has been a pleasant enough series, and I like the fact that they’ve not only got the episodic mysteries, but also overarching plots involving Shunta (Chinen Yuri)’s origins as well as Shomei (Nishikido Ryo)’s background.

Unfortunately, this is as far as the subtitles seem to go. I usually like to be one episode behind the translators, but I’ve been waiting for a while and this has been the last subbed episode for more than a month and a half, so . . . if anyone knows another source (I normally just go to D-Addicts), please give me a hint in the comments below, otherwise I’ll have to rely on my deeply flawed understanding of Japanese in order to make sense of the episodes.

But I have subs for this one, so let’s get cracking!

Interesting how the nurse ran panicked, but the little girl in the wheelchair didn’t seem the least bit surprised or afraid.

The jam taste-testing between Shunta’s parents in the middle of her ghost story was unexpectedly cute and amusing.

Ultimately, the hospital manager himself pays Shomei a visit because the unrest among the staff has now spread to the patients, and it’s not as if people who are sick need any more anxiety. Midori continued to contribute a lot to this scene.
