Elegant Yokai Apartment Life Manga Gets Spinoff in December

Manga focuses on Yūshi, secondhand bookstore employee traveling the world

The January 2022 issue of Kodansha's Shonen Sirius magazine revealed last Friday that Waka Miyama's Elegant Yokai Apartment Life (Yōkai Apāto no Yūga na Nichijō) manga will have a spinoff that will launch in the magazine's next issue on December 24.

The manga will focus on Yūshi and the secondhand bookshop employee traveling throughout the world, seeing for themselves how vast the world can be. The manga's first setting will be Machu Pichu in Peru.

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 Monthly Shonen Sirius in 2011, and ended it on August 25. Kodansha published the manga's 23rd compiled book volume on July 8.

Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally only in English, and it released the 21st volume on March 30. 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.
