Yōkai Apāto no Yūga na Nichijō Anime Reveals Teaser Visual
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Kodansha opened a website on Friday for the television anime adaptation of Hinowa Kōzuki's Yōkai Apāto no Yūga na Nichijō (Refined Daily Life at the Supernatural Entity Apartment) light novel series, and the site revealed a teaser visual for the anime. The series will premiere in July.
The novels' story centers on Yūshi Inaba, a 16-year-old boy whose parents died three years ago. He moved into his uncle's house, but resolved to move into a dormitory in high school. Those plans were dashed when that dormitory burned down. He eventually finds an apartment with cheap 25,000-yen (about US$220) rent. Yūshi finds out too late that the apartment is home to supernatural creatures such as ghosts, yōkai, and mononoke, and his daily life becomes embroiled in the eccentric apartment.
Kōzuki launched the light novel series in 2003, and concluded it in 2009 with 10 volumes (and a later side-story collection in 2013). Kadokawa republished the 10 novels in 2008-2014, and published two spinoff novels for the series in 2009 and 2012. Waka Miyama launched a manga adaptation in Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine in 2011. Kodansha published the manga's 12th compiled book volume last November, and will publish the 13th volume on April 7.
The original work has more than 4.7 million copies in print.
