Manga launched in 2011, adapts Hinowa Kōzuki's light novel series

The Twitter account for the Animate store in Wakayama city posted a picture on Friday of the cover of the 19th volume of Waka Miyama's Elegant Yokai Apartment Life (Yōkai Apāto no Yūga na Nichijō) manga, which reveals that the manga has entered what it is calling its "final season." The manga volume shipped on Friday.

Hinowa Kōzuki launched the original Yōkai Apāto no Yūga na Nichijō light novel series in 2003, and concluded it in 2009 with 10 volumes (and a later side-story collection in 2013). Miyama launched the manga adaptation in Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine in 2011.

Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally only in English, and it will release the 18th volume on October 22. The company describes the manga:

Yokai, ghosts, and humans living together in harmony? Yushi Inaba was taken in by his uncle's family after losing his parents in an accident three years ago. Now sixteen and eager to make it on his own, he hopes to move into dorm upon entering high school. But by a cruel twist of fate, the dorm burns to the ground! After searching high and low, Yushi finally manages to find an apartment at the too-good-to-be-true price of 25,000 yen per month! Sure enough, there's one condition: the apartment is haunted! Surrounded by a gaggle of colorful tenants, Yushi's "normal" high school life begins!

The novels inspired a television anime that premiered in July 2017 and aired for 26 episodes. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired.
