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). Kadokawa republished the 10 novels in 2008-2014, and published two spinoff novels for the series in 2009 and 2012. Waka Miyama launched a manga adaptation in Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine in 2011.
