Summary - Japanese

夕士が高校入学と同時に始めた、あこがれの下宿生活。幼い頃に両親を事故で亡くしたため、早く独り立ちをするのが彼の夢。ところがそこには、ちょっと変わった、しかし人情味あふれる“住人たち”が暮らしていた…。

Summary - English

Inaba Yuushi’s parents died in his first year of middle school, and he moved in with his relatives. Though they did care for him, he could tell he was a burden. After he graduated, he happily prepared to move to a high school with a dormitory. Unfortunately, the dormitory burned to the ground before he could move in! Yuushi doesn’t want to live with his grudging relatives, but it’s rough finding lodging as an orphaned student with little money. He finally finds a room in a nice old building which seems too good to be true.

The catch is that it is a Monster House, a place where humans and supernatural creatures–ghosts, mononoke, etc.-- live together. Another high schooler lives there, a cute girl named Akine, and she’s completely unfazed by the monsters. In fact, she can even exorcise evil spirits! Yuushi’s high school life just got much stranger than he ever bargained for! [source: anilist]

Why are you nominating this book: Watched the anime years ago and wanted to read the LN ever since, but somehow I have yet to get around to it. :sweat_smile:
