VIZ Media expands its shojo manga catalog with the acquisition of Kakuriyo: Bed & Breakfast for Spirits.
The supernatural romantic comedy will launch in Fall 2018 in print and digital editions under VIZ Media’s Shojo Beat imprint. The series is rated “T” for Teens and features story and artwork by creator Wako Ioka, with character designs by Laruha. Kakuriyo: Bed & Breakfast for Spirits is based on several light novels by author Midori Yuma and has also been adapted into an anime series. The new publishing acquisition was detailed during VIZ Media’s official panel held this past weekend during Anime Central 2018 in Chicago.
In Kakuriyo: Bed & Breakfast for Spirits, Aoi Tsubasa inherited her grandfather’s ability to see spirits – and his massive debt to them. Now she’s been kidnapped and taken to Kakuriyo, the spirit world, to make good on his bill. Her options: marry the head of the inn her grandfather trashed or get eaten by the supernatural creatures who work there. But Aoi isn’t the type to let spirits push her around, and she’s determined to redeem her grandfather’s IOU on her own terms.
