Yōkai Apāto no Yūga na Nichijō Supernatural Light Novels Get TV Anime in July
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The May issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine is revealing on Saturday that a television anime adaptation of Hinowa Kōzuki's Yōkai Apāto no Yūga na Nichijō (Refined Daily Life at the Supernatural Entity Apartment) light novel series has been green-lit for a July premiere. The magazine's next issue in April will provide more information.
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). 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.
