Mononoke started as a TV anime produced by Toei Animation. It originally aired on Fuji TV’s Noitamina TV block from July to September 2007 and had a total of 12 episodes. The anime was directed by Kenji Nakamura (Gatchaman Crowds Insight), with a screenplay by Ikuko Takahashi (episodes 1-2, 10-11) Chiaki Konaka (episodes 3-5, 8-9), Manabu Ishikawa (episodes 6-7), Michiko Yokote (episode 12). Takashi Hashimoto was a character designer and the chief animation director of the project. Yasuharu Takanashi composed the music. The story is a spin-off of the Ayakashi: Samurai Horror Tales anime from 2006 (also animated by Toei Animation), and over the years it had multiple manga adaptations.

Twin Engine describes the plot as:
Appearing out of nowhere where the Mononoke is born, he slashes, exorcises, calms, and saves the Mononoke—a mysterious man, the “Medicine Seller.” This time, Medicine Seller appears in the “Ooku” where women’s grudges swirl. What is the real nature of the “female grudges” that hide in the world of gorgeousness and majestic beauty, and the “Mononoke” that is born there?
