Why am I suddenly expecting our male lead to scream “Oh my God!” as loud as he can at the end of every episode?
Earlier today, an official website for Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs (Yuragi-sō no Yūna-san) opened its doors. The site includes a visual and trailer for the project, as well as the first staff and cast attached to the project.
We break the details down below:
The 45-second teaser features Yuuna reclining in a hot spring, before cutting to a white screen with the main staff and cast. The scene cuts back to Yuuna, who introduces herself to the audience.
The image focuses on lead characters Yuuna and Kogarashi Fuyuzora. Yuuna takes top billing in the foreground of the shot.
Tsuyoshi Nagasawa (Nyaruko: Crawling with Love!, Clockwork Planet) is directing the show at Xebec, with Kyoko Taketani providing character designs. Hideaki Koyasu (Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan: Demon Capital, Akikan!) is in charge of series composition.
Jin Aketagawa will serve as sound director for the project, while Tomoki Kikuya scores the soundtrack.
The series will star the following:
- Kogarashi Fuyuzora: Yuuki Ono
- Yuuna: Miyuri Shimabukuro
- Chisaki Miyazaki: Eri Suzuki
- Sagiri Amano: Rie Takahashi
Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs will hit Japanese TV in Summer 2018.
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?
