Seven Seas Licenses Yokai Rental Shop Manga by Nightmare Inspector's Mashiba

Manga about supernatural creature rental store coming in October

Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Friday that it has licensed Shin Mashiba's Yokai Rental Shop (Yōkai Nii-san) manga. The first single volume is slated for October 24, 2017.

Seven Seas describes the story:

When Hiiragi learns that he has a half-brother he's never met, he decides to meet the man…but is shocked by what he discovers. Hiiragi's newfound older brother is inexplicably covered in bandages from head to toe, and runs a mysterious pet shop that sells rare animals. Behind the counter of this strange place is an even more shocking secret: customers in-the-know can rent out yokai creatures to perform supernatural deeds, as long as they're willing to forge a contract written in blood.

Mashiba began the series in June 2015. Square Enix published the third compiled volume on February 27 in Japan.

Viz Media published Mashiba's Nightmare Inspector: Yumekui Kenbun manga in North America.
