Production company Aniplex announced a television anime adaptation of Soumatou's Shadows House manga on Friday. The sixth volume, which shipped the same day, also contained the announcement on its wraparound band. A teaser visual for the anime will be revealed in the 48th issue of Weekly Young Jump on October 29.

Faceless shadow nobles living in a vast mansion, attended by living dolls who spend much of their time cleaning up the soot endlessly emitted by their mysterious masters.

Follow the story of Emilyko, a young and cheerful living doll, as she learns her duties serving as the attendant for Kate Shadow-sama. (Source: MU)

Soumatou began drawing the slice of life supernatural manga in Weekly Young Jump in September 2018. Tonari no Young Jump and the Yanjan! application simultaneously serialize a colored version. Shueisha published the fifth volume on June 19.

It's my first time seeing this manga and my first impression is pretty favourable. Emilyko is such a nice name I love it.

This manga is beautiful. Marvelous indeed.

But it's dark. And that makes it great for an adaptation.

Let's wait and see
Gotta update this soon™

Great manga can't wait to see what they do with this. Both the central plot, and the wider world, are mysterious and fascinating. Kind of manga where you have more questions than answers. Story build up is really good and it has a mixture of fluff/dark moments. Fingers crossed they adapt this beautifully.

Aniplex huh? How much do y'all wanna bet this is going to be animated by A-1 Pictures or Cloverworks?

My typical experience with Among Us:
Red: "I just saw black vent"
Black: "It's not me bro....It's light blue. He's pretty sus right now"
Me: "What?! I was doing the card swipe!"

Every story has something more to deliver than the surface story.

Oh worm, Kuro is my favorite manga too! If this is similar to Kuro I'll definitely give it a read and, eventually, a watch! I'd love for a Kuro anime too, tbh. Maybe if Shadows House does well!

Could be shaft,bones, wit, ufotable,IG, MAPPA but you're right, the most probably is A-1 and Cloverworks

looks weird and interesting, kinda like munou no nana fans said about their manga, it's not what it seems
