Manga launched in 2011, adapts Hinowa Kōzuki‘s light novel series
The September issue of Kodansha‘s Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine revealed on Monday that Waka Miyama‘s Elegant Yokai Apartment Life (Yōkai Apāto no Yūga na Nichijō) manga will end in the magazine’s next issue on August 25.
The manga entered its “final season” in November 2019.
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. Kodansha published the manga’s 23rd compiled book volume on July 8.
