Earlier today, Viz Media announced that they licensed Midori Yūma and illustrator Wako Ioka’s Kakuriyo: Bed & Breakfast for Spirits (Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi) manga. The series will launch in Winter 2018 under the company’s Shojo Beat imprint.

The series is based on Midori Yūma and illustrator Laruha’s Kakuriyo Yadomeshi ayakashi o yado ni yomeiri shimasu. light novels, which launched under Fujimi Shobo’s “Fujimi L Bunko” imprint in 2015. To date, eight volumes have been released, with the most recent reaching stores on April 13.

The title also spawned an anime TV series, which is currently airing on Japanese TV. Yoshiko Okuda is directing the show at Gonzo, with Youko Satou (Saiyuki Reload Blast, Dog & Scissors) providing character designs. Tomoko Konparu (Utano☆Princesama Revolutions, Dance with Devils) is in charge of series composition for the project.

Crunchyroll currently streams the Kakuriyo: Bed & Breakfast for Spirits anime, and describe the title as:

After losing her grandfather, Aoi—a girl who can see spirits known as ayakashi—is suddenly approached by an ogre. Demanding she pay her grandfather’s debt, he makes a huge request: her hand in marriage! Refusing this absurd offer, Aoi decides to work at the Tenjin-ya bed and breakfast for the ayakashi to pay back what her family owes.
