Sentai Filmworks acquires INVADERS OF THE ROKUJYOMA!?

Suspiciously cheap rent will come with a major caveat or two as one crazy neighbor after another stakes their claim in Sentai Filmworks' latest acquisition, Invaders of the Rokujyoma!? This romantic comedy series is directed by Shin Oonuma (Pani Poni Dash!, Kokoro Connect) with series composition Shogo Yasukawa (Hyperdimension Neptunia, Persona – Trinity Soul), character design by Hideki Furukawa (WATAMOTE, Date A Live) and animation production by SILVER LINK (Fate/Kaleid liner Prisma Illya, Non Non Biyori).

Synopsis: When high schooler Koutaro Satomi stumbles upon a suspiciously cheap apartment, he thinks he’s found quite the sweet deal. Although it’s a little small, the great location and low rent more than make up for it. But Koutaro’s bargain soon turns out to be more than he’s bargained for when he discovers that his apartment is haunted by an adorable girl ghost!

This sweet-faced specter wants him out, and a battle of the wills quickly ensues. But just when Koutaro thinks he’s gained the upper hand, he’s interrupted by the arrival of even more unwanted houseguests who turn his home into a battlefield. Will Koutaro be able to take back control of his apartment, or will these strange new females stage a hostile takeover?

What’s certain is that Koutaro’s life is about to give a brand new meaning to the phrase “if it’s too good to be true, then it DEFINITELY is!”

Invaders of the Rokujyoma!? will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
