Elegant Yokai Apartment Life, Volume 4: 11/25/22

Elegant Yokai Apartment Life, Volume 4

Elegant Yokai Apartment Life, Volume 4 by Hinowa Kouzuki and Waka Miyama (Illustrator) (2013) takes on a Noragami feel. Yushi gets into the habit of taking his grimoire to high school and its presence seems to invite paranormal trouble.

Of particular amusement to this reader was Yushi's summoning the fates. Or as my kids call them, the Pizza Goddess and her two sisters, thanks to Ah! My Goddess!. They are rendered very differently here, though they are amusing in their own way.

Yushi's friend, Hase continues to be a regular at the apartment. The two boys are cute together. As much as I try to avoid shipping characters, these two just go together.

Four stars
