5-minute horror comedy shorts directed by Hisayoshi Hirasawa

The staff for the television anime of Riichi Kageyama's Kiitarō Shōnen no Yōkai Enikki (Young Kiitarō's Yōkai Visual Diary) manga revealed the staff, new visuals and the anime's October premiere on Tuesday.

Hisayoshi Hirasawa (Ojisan to Marshmallow, OZMAFIA!!) is directing the series at Creators in Pack. WORDS in STEREO is credited with the scenario. Noriyuki Imaoka (Yozakura Quartet ~Tsuki ni Naku~, Yowamushi Pedal, Gatchaman Crowds insight animation director) is designing the characters.

The characters include:

Kiitarō, the protagonist

Suzu (Zashiki-warashi, a protective household spirit)

Kitsune-men no Onna (Yōko, a fox spirit)

Yuki Musume (Yukinko, a winter spirit)

Yuki Haha (Yuki Onna, another kind of winter spirit)

The anime will run for five minutes per episode, and will premiere on Tokyo MX and Sun TV in October.

Kageyama launched the manga in 2008, and the series is available on the "Manga Goccha" website. Micro Magazine published the manga's seventh compiled volume in print in January 2015. The manga's eighth volume is slated for September 30.

The horror comedy "that's not scary at all" revolves around Kiitarō, a boy with a strong sixth sense who is always surrounded by demons. He gets talked to by Yuki Onna (snow women), gets his bath licked by Akaname (licking demons), and lives with the Zashikiwarashi Suzu, whom he just can't come to dislike.
