Tokyo life takes a turn for the spooky in a new trailer for Zashiki-warashi no Tatami-chan ("Tatami-chan, the Guest Room Child"), an upcoming horror gag comedy mini-anime from the manga author of Hi Score Girl which features a sharp-tongued spirit experiencing life in the big city.
The story of Zashiki-warashi no Tatami-chan follows Tatami-chan, a household deity from Tono City in Iwate Prefecture, who moves to the big city of Tokyo. However, Tatami-chan uses up all of her limited funds to rent a rundown apartment that doesn't have gas, water, or electricity, so she's forced to take on human and yokai roommates and to look for a part-time job.
Zashiki-warashi no Tatami-chan is directed by Rensuke Oshikiri and features animation production by Zero-G. The series will broadcast on dTV, d Anime Store, and other outlets beginning in April of 2020.
