The official website of Reiichi Kageyama's supernatural manga Kiitarou Shounen no Youkai Enikki has announced that it will get an anime adaptation to be produced by Creators in Pack.

Kiitarou Shounen no Youkai Enikki is a web manga which began publishing in October 2008. Micro Magazine Comics released the series as physical manga in 2011, and it is currently has seven compiled volumes in print.

This is the visual diary of Kiitarou's experience with youkai. He's a boy with a very strong spirit sense, but when he entered a forbidden storehouse, he was kicked out of his home. He soon found a new place to live, where he met a zashiki warashi (house spirit) named Suzu. He and Suzu soon began to attract all kinds of spirit creatures, starting with a nurikabe (appears as a wall that impedes travelers) and mokumokuren (appears as eyes in a torn paper wall). What kind of folkloric creature will he meet next? (Source: MangaHelpers)

Oh this could be funny. I just wonder how chaotic their life will be.

Looks good. I think it should also be noted that Creators in Pack will be producing this show (Source), so it'll probably be a short.
