Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls (モンスター娘のいる日常, Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou) is a comedy manga series written and illustrated by Okayado.
The story revolves around Kimihito Kurusu, a Japanese student whose life is thrown into turmoil after becoming involved with the "Interspecies Cultural Exchange" program by mistake and being forced to act as the homestay host for various monster girls; including a lamia named Miia, a harpy named Papi, a centaur named Centorea, a slime named Suu, a mermaid named Meroune, and an arachne named Rachnera. The manga follows their various misadventures as Kimihito attempts to cater for each of his homestay guests.
The manga is currently published in Japan by Tokuma Shoten in their Monthly Comic Ryū magazine and by Seven Seas Entertainment in the United States, with the chapters collected and reprinted into tankōbon volumes.
Chapter List and Story ArcsEdit
- The manga is a decent seller in Japan but hasn't made a huge splash. In North America, it regularly hit the New York Times Manga Top 10 before the anime was announced, occasionally outselling other well established series such as Attack on Titan and Bleach.
- While the manga series is rated Teen 18+ in western countries, Monster Musume is not rated 18+ in Japan. The prerequisite in Japan for the “Rated R” rating is by either showing a sex scene or drawing the frontal pubic region nude.
