Viz Media‘s Shojo Beat imprint published the series in English, and released the manga’s 16th and final volume in October 2020. Viz Media describes the manga’s story:
Himari Momochi inherits a mysterious house that comes with its own gorgeous demon guardian.
On her sixteenth birthday, orphan Himari Momochi inherits her ancestral estate that she’s never seen. Momochi House exists on the barrier between the human and spiritual realms, and Himari is meant to act as guardian between the two worlds. But on the day she moves in, she finds three handsome squatters already living in the house, and one seems to have already taken over her role!
The manga inspired a drama CD and a 2015 stage play. A limited sequel manga series launched on July 24.
