The comedy supernatural manga ran for 18 volumes in Weekly Shounen Jump between 2004 and 2008 and was later compiled into ten e-book volumes. Shueisha published a two-volume novel adaptation by Saya Amou in August 2007 and December 2008. Nishii is launching a sequel manga on Shounen Jump+'s website on Monday.
VIZ Media licensed the series in English and published all 18 volumes from 2007 to 2010.
Nice! I love this recent trend of older/completed manga getting anime adaptions over the past couple years. The Japanese have been wanting a Muhyo & Roji anime for a good while now. And with the manga also getting a sequel, I guess an anime adaptation was bound to happen. But still, what a pleasant surprise!
I remember the manga being fairly solid when I read through it a few years ago, so I'll definitely be giving the anime a shot. I wonder how many episodes it'll go for and which studio is adapting it. The key visual and trailer look promising, at least.
