It’s time to meet the first residents of the Yōkai Apartments.
Earlier today, the official Yōkai Apāto no Yūga na Nichijō (Gracious Daily Life in the Youkai Apartments) anime website updated with a new promotional video, as well as a key visual.
The 25-second promo video introduces the first two cast members for the show. Atsushi Abe and Yuichi Nakamura will play lead characters Yuushi Inaba and Mizuke Hase, respectively. The two are reprising their roles from previous drama CDs that were released.
The key visual features the major cast members, standing in front of the titular Yōkai Apartments. The building is bathed in a golden glow, as light shines forth from the windows and doors.
Yōkai Apāto no Yūga na Nichijō hits Japanese TV this July. The show will air on Tokyo MX, Yomiuri TV, and BS11 as part of the “Anime no Me” programming block. An advanced screening event is planned for July 1, which will feature Atsushi Abe as a guest host.
