    Another Yokai series? Oh well, this one's harmless fun.
    I've come down hard on other series when they've been hollow 'me toos' following fads, but this is one of those anime that at least has the taste to take the best elements of the wave it's riding to bring something you can at least show to other people and not have them get utterly freaked out. It's a 'gateway' anime, something with a story that's not hard to follow, doesn't have anything too ...

    7 episodes in and can't wait for next week!
    I watched this on a whim since I thought the premise sounded like fun. I'm really glad that I did, as this is a lighthearted and fun watch so far. There are some serious moments as well, mostly centered on character development for the lead, which I really enjoyed. Reminds me of Spirited Away (loosely) in that a person is suddenly exposed to the spirit world and needs to adjust and adapt to their ...

    Living with Yokai! A excellent premise, done with good humor. It will be one of the best this season!
    This answers the question of "Where do you live when your dorm burns down and you don't have any money?" Why in an apartment with Yokai, where else? This takes a good-natured approach to yokai (ghosts and demons). The Yokai Apartments look like a fun place to live. It doesn't hurt that the good looking girl next door is an exorcist. The animation was excellent and the plot was captivating. The ...

    As of the first episode this looks good.
    I very rarely write reviews so this is a special one. The story is fun and I like the MC this looks like it will be a good summer watch. As of episode one Elegant Yokai apartment life is an enjoyable watch and I am looking forward to episode two of this fish out of water tail. ( sorry about the pun ) It will be interesting to learn the stories of the different Yokai that "live" in the building.

    Enjoyable and simple
    I didn't expect to like this as much as I did. I kind of just stumbled onto it and it sucked me in.

    The premise is brought into things quickly and the characters are all nicely diverse and interesting in their own ways. While you're not going to get the massive overarching plots of some animes, you will get nicely digestible bites of a fun and interesting anime that will leave you wanting ...

    What an awesome life!
    I am not one to usually watch anime that do not have some sort of action in them (although i have been trying to branch out), but this one has grabbed my attention and I can't stop watching it. Watching the main character slowly grow to love his new life and even discover some things about himself is truly awesome. Also I have not found a character in this show that i absolutely despise either. ...

    If you want something light and not too serious, this is a good one
    I've been watching anime for over twenty years and have seen a gamut of anime from bad to good. This one falls onto the good side of the spectrum. Not excellent, not groundbreaking, but a nice light-hearted anime that still covers the occasional serious topic.

    In terms of quality, from the animation to the story, I've seen better. In terms of being entertaining and worth some lighthearted ...

    Review of Elegant Yokai Apartment Life
    This is a fairly good anime. I do agree with the other reviewer in that it is very similar to Natsume's Book of Friends. It is light and comical. A refreshing easy going anime. I'm watching this between some longer more complex anime's so it a nice change of pace. I personally like the art and music. I think the story is good but could be better. All in all this is a great light anime ...

  • SUPER chill fun anime!
    Pros
    Great loveable characters, the most chilled anime I can think off currently, nice music (desperatly waiting for the soundtrack to come out!!!), I specially love the relationships between the characters, and when the show wants you to hate a certain character, it does it flawlessly! Also even if characters don't talk you can love em, theres a couple in the show that never talk and I think ...

  • Yokai Apartement are smart
    Really nice anime, gentle, somehow funny and lighthearted even when things don't go well - All the inhabitants of this apartement are kind to the newcommer Inaba and it seems so natural to live with them, first shock passed.
    I've enjoyed watching it, the animation and drawnings are good and the story get me stuck till the end. It make me tkink of The Morose Mononokean somhow.
    It's a good one to ...
