The manga began serialization in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine on February 8, 2016,[2] with eleven volumes that have been collected in tankōbon format so far.

Plot[edit]

The series follows the life of the luckless and homeless high school student Kogarashi Fuyuzora. In his search for a home, he is introduced to the Yuragi Inn, a cheap boarding house and former hot springs inn. The reason the rent is so cheap is because it is haunted by the beautiful ghost spirit Yuuna whose corpse was discovered at the inn. Kogarashi then helps Yuuna with her unfinished business, all while discovering the supernatural secrets of the rest of the female tenants.
