posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Kadokawa's Fujimi L Bunko imprint announced on Thursday that writer Midori Yūma and illustrator Laruha's Kakuriyo Yadomeshi (Afterlife Inn Cooking) light novel series is getting a television anime series that will premiere in 2018.
The series centers on a female college student named Aoi, who inherited the ability to see spirits from her late grandfather. Aoi prides herself on her cooking, and one day she's feeding some agricultural spirits when suddenly a god and the master of the "Tenshinya" (Heavenly Inn) appears and takes Aoi away. He says that due to her grandfather's debts, she must become his bride. Aoi hates this idea and instead declares that she will pay back her grandfather's debt by working at the Tenshinya.
Yūma launched the novel series in 2015, and Kadokawa will publish the seventh novel on November 15. As of October the series has more than 340,000 copies in print.
Wako Ioka is drawing a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's B's-LOG COMIC magazine, and the manga's third volume will ship on November 15.
