The story of Hinowa Kōzuki's original novels 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.
Mitsuo Hashimoto (Dragon Ball Z: Bardock - The Father of Goku, Battle B-Daman: Fire Spirits, Initial D: Fifth Stage) is directing the anime at Shinei Animation. Yasunori Yamada (A Little Snow Fairy Sugar, Hybrid x Heart Magias Academy Ataraxia) is in charge of series composition. Tomomi Shimazaki (THE [email protected] MOVIE: Kagayaki no Mukōgawa e!, Hunter x Hunter key animation) is designing the characters for animation.
