Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs (ゆらぎ荘の幽奈さん, Yuragi-sō no Yūna-san) is a Japanese shōnen manga series written and illustrated by Tadahiro Miura. The manga began serialization in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine on February 8, 2016,[2] with fifteen volumes that have been collected in tankōbon format so far. Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that it will release the series for an English audience under its Ghost Ship imprint with the first volume releasing on May 8, 2018.[3][4] An anime television series adaptation by Xebec aired from July 14 to September 29, 2018.

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.

However, he was able to become physically and spiritually stronger after training under Ōga Makyōin (魔境院逢牙, Makyōin Ōga), a descendant of the Yatahagane (八咫鋼, Yatahagane) family. He is the only known living person that can use the abilities of the Yatahagane. Kogarashi is extremely popular with the females around him with almost all of the female characters being a love interest of his and whether or not he notices their affection towards him is entirely unknown. The girls that have shown to be in love with him are Yuuna, Chisaki, Sagiri, Oboro, Hibari, and Karura, with the latter two having already confessed and been rejected by him although it only made them both bolder in their pursuits.
