Okashi Ayakashi Yōyō Ibun manga centers on supernatural nursery

Writer Hiroyuki Yoshino launched the new manga Okashi Ayakashi Yōyō Ibun ~Yōkai Hoikuen no Jikenbo~ (A Story of Strange Oddities and Spectral Children ~The Case Files of the Spirit Nursery School) on Akita Shoten's Manga Cross website on Wednesday. Foi draws the manga.

The manga centers on Tamaki Toriyama, a girl who has so far failed at finding a job, but inherits her grandmother's nursery school. It turns out that the school hosts not children, but supernatural spirits. In addition, the nursery's adjacent kindergarten also sees many weird happenings at night.

Yoshino is perhaps best known for penning the story and scripts for the original anime My-HiME and the spinoff My-Otome, in addition to penning the manga adaptation for the latter. Yoshino has written scripts for numerous anime, and wrote the story for original anime such as Macross Frontier, Sound of the Sky, Vividred Operation, and Izetta: The Last Witch. He also wrote the Qwaser of Stigmata manga, which inspired two television anime in 2010 and 2011. He has also written the scripts for the long-running anime adaptation of the Strike the Blood novels.
