The official website for the television anime of Riichi Kageyama's Kiitarō Shōnen no Yōkai Enikki (Young Kiitarō's Yōkai Visual Diary) manga revealed the show's main cast and premiere date on Thursday. The anime will premiere on October 5 at 10:33 p.m. on Tokyo MX, and will then premiere on October 6 at 12:03 a.m. on Sun TV. The anime will run for five minutes per episode.

The show will star:

Hiromi Igarashi as Kiitarō, the protagonist

Arisa Nakada as Suzu (Zashiki-warashi, a protective household spirit)

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

Maria Naganawa as Yuki Musume (Yukinko, a winter spirit)

Sayaka Ohara as Yuki Haha (Yuki Onna, a snow spirit)

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.

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.
