Monster Musume adapts OKAYADO's Monster Musume (Monster Musume no Iru Nichijō or Everyday Life with Monster Girls) manga. Seven Seas Entertainment releases the manga in North America, and it describes the story:

Monsters: they're real, and they want to date us!

Three years ago, the world learned that harpies, centaurs, catgirls, and all manners of fabulous creatures are not merely fiction; they are flesh and blood - not to mention scale, feather, horn, and fang. Thanks to the "Cultural Exchange Between Species Act," these once-mythical creatures have assimilated into society, or at least, they're trying.

When a hapless human teenager named Kurusu Kimihito is inducted as a "volunteer" into the government exchange program, his world is turned upside down. A snake-like lamia named Miia comes to live with him, and it is Kurusu's job to take care of her and make sure she integrates into his everyday life.

Unfortunately for Kurusu, Miia is undeniably sexy, and the law against interspecies breeding is very strict. Even worse, when a ravishing centaur girl and a flirtatious harpy move in, what's a full-blooded teenage human with raging hormones to do?!

Tatsuya Yoshihara (Muromi-san, Yatterman Night) is directing the anime, with series composition and scripting by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, Miss Monochrome). Takaya Sunagawa (Yozakura Quartet ~Tsuki ni Naku~) is serving as character designer and animation director. Shunji Akasaka (key animator for Tamayura - More Aggressive, Cardfight!! Vanguard) is serving as chief animation director and sub-character designer. manzo and Hiroaki Tsutsumi are composing the music for the series. Lerche x Seva is handling the show's animation.

Crunchyroll and Daisuki are streaming the series as it airs, and Sentai Filmworks has licensed the series for home video.
