Mokke (もっけ?) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by manga author Takatoshi Kumakura. The manga was first serialized in the Japanese seinen manga magazine Afternoon Season Zoukan on August 2000. The magazine was suspended after its 14th issue, and the manga continued its serialization from the March 2003 issue of Afternoon magazine. An anime adaptation by Madhouse and Tezuka Productions started its broadcast run in October 2007.

The kanji representation of the title (もっけ which is in hiragana) is 勿怪, which means "unexpected".

Plot[edit]

The series revolves around the Hibara sisters' encounters with Japanese demons and spirits. The older sister, Shizuru, has the ability to see these apparitions, while the younger sister, Mizuki, has a tendency to become possessed by them. They live in the countryside because their parents were unable to deal with their supernatural abilities; their grandfather is an expert in such affairs. Through their encounters with the supernatural, Mizuki and Shizuru learn about both themselves and the world at large.

Characters[edit]

Shizuru Hibara A girl who can see spirits. She is voiced by Ayako Kawasumi.

Mizuki Hibara An elementary girl who is easily possessed by spirits. She is voiced by Nana Mizuki.
