Manga based on novel series by Elegant Yokai Apartment Life's Kōzuki launched in 2013

The November issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine revealed on Wednesday that Ai Takahashi's Ōedo Yōkai Kawaraban manga will end in the December issue on October 26.

The manga is based on the late author Hinowa Kōzuki's series of children's books. Takahashi launched the manga in Kodansha's Shonen Sirius magazine in January 2013. Kodansha published the manga's 10th compiled book volume on April 9.

Elex Media Komputindo publishes the manga in Indonesia, and it describes the story:

In a certain location lies the city of spirits and demons, the so-called "Ōedo City." Here, supernatural beings are free to wander to and fro, with yōkai who live and coexist together in a big community. It is also the city that a single human being calls home. Together with helpful yōkai, this young man works as a journalist for the local Kawaraban newspaper!

Kōzuki also wrote the Yōkai Apāto no Yūga na Nichijō (Elegant Yokai Apartment Life) light novel series from 2003 to 2009. The novels inspired a 26-episode anime adaptation last year and an ongoing manga adaptation that launched in Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine in 2011.
