Questionable Days with Yokai

During their last summer vacation of high school, Risako Kitamura and Yasuo Mizutani go to an old Japanese-style mansion up in the mountains, each there for a separate reason. They discover the place is cursed, home to a hidden world of yokai monsters and spirits!

This story was a semifinalist in the 2021 MAL x Honeyfeed writing contest.

Comment from the judging panel: "The storytelling has a wonderful steady pace and immerses you wonderfully into the adventures of the main characters. It could be likened to 'Spirited Away' meets 'Kimi no Na wa.' While the story structure is designed in more of an episodic format, I think it is perfect for engaging readers. The comedy is nice and subtle and doesn't try too hard to make you laugh. A delightful read."

Look forward to volume 2, which I plan to begin releasing on 2/22/22.
