“Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs” Anime Casts Yuuki Ono

So, is this closer to Haunted Junction or Yamishibai, here?

The latest issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine (Issue 1, 2018) reports that Yuuki Ono was cast in the upcoming Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs (Yuragi-sō no Yūna-san) anime series. Ono will play the role of leading male character Kogarashi Fuyuzora in the show.

According to Shueisha, new “broadcast information” will be unveiled in future issues of Weekly Shonen Jump, as well as during a stage event at the Jump Festa ’18 event. Jump Fest ’18 will be held from December 16 – 17.

Tadahiro Miura’s Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs manga launched in Weekly Shonen Jump in February 2016. The series currently spans eight collected volumes, with the most recent hitting stores on November 2.

Seven Seas currently holds the rights to the title, and plans to release it under their “Ghost Ship” mature imprint. The first volume will ship to retailers on March 27. They describe Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs as:

Homeless and haunted by ghosts, high schooler Kogarashi thinks his luck has finally turned when he finds Yuragi-sou–a cheap boarding house that was formerly a hot springs inn, now full of super sexy, scantily clad female tenants. If Kogarashi can use his spirit abilities to banish the ghost that haunts the inn, he can even live there rent-free! But when the ghost, a beautiful teenage girl named Yuuna, appears before him, Kogarashi takes pity on her and is suddenly not so sure about the exorcism. Will he help save Yuuna from becoming an evil spirit? And what supernatural secrets do the other boarders hold?
