Based on Kiri Wazawa’s Gangan Online manga which has been running since 2013 and Crunchyroll simul-publishes, Directed by Akira Iwanaga at Pierrot Plus, Crunchyroll describes the series as:

“Exorcism” is the art of sending yokai who have somehow wandered into the living world back into the underworld, where they belong.

One day Hanae Ashiya, a high school student who’s been haunted by a yokai, happens to find the contact information of an exorcist called the “Mononokean” and pays him a visit. The exorcist he meets is a morose-looking young man, Haruitsuki Abeno, and for various reasons Ashiya ends up working for the Mononokean…

And so the story of the exorcist duo Ashiya and Abeno, and the yokai they meet in their adventures, begins.

Staff (though the poster claims Production I.G.), Crunchyroll describes the series as:

It is spring, the season of great changes. Hikari Kohinata is an overwhelmingly cheerful and outgoing 15-year-old girl who has spent all her life in a small and beautiful seaside town on the Izu peninsula. On the first day of high school, she meets Futaba Oki, a slightly introverted girl who has just moved from Tokyo. Before she knows it, Futaba gets dragged along into Hikari’s passion for scuba diving. And from there, Futaba gradually starts to come out of her shell, and learns how to take challenges and dive into the ocean of life.
